On the Drying Rack

Our new butter bar!

This soap includes four skin loving butters - illipe, shea, mango seed, and cocoa butter!  It is scented with a EO blend of Star Anise, Lavender, and Cedarwood.

What is your favorite blend that includes star anise?  I'm trying to find a blend that I like... not sure about this one!



  1. Ah ha! I can answer this! I just did a survey asking the same question, and I'll tell you exactly what the responses were: first & second place were tied with "anise stinks" and "anise + other spices". Third place was anise + orange, followed by a tie for 4th & 5th place between anise + lavender and anise + mint. Chocolate or vanilla are also options. I tried them all, and really liked a combination of anise + orange and other spices, but ended up with just the other spices: Peppernut Soap. More than you wanted to know?

  2. I may have to try some of these! Because I agree with your first place - anise stinks! Thanks for the suggestions!

  3. Caitlin,

    I think you should try your blend again without the Cedarwood as I've heard Anise and Lavender is pretty but haven't tried it myself.

    New soap looks cool by the way.
