www.bluehipposoaps.com is live for ordering! Look for winter holiday scents very soon!


I'm looking for some testimonials about my soaps for the website - I know some of you have written rave reviews in the past on your own LJs. If you'd like to post them here in the comments field, I will put them up on the site along with your first name and last initial (don't forget to include that)!

Website should be up and running by tomorrow...

brief update

I'm working on a website! I'll let you know when it's officially up and running :)

More whipped body wash is on its way very soon!
Hello everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that there is still some Pumpkin Spice left available, but not a lot...I am now down to 5. So, if you wanted to grab some while you still can...now is the time! I hope everyone who has ordered so far is enjoying their soaps and washes :)


The winter holidays are coming! I know, I know, I'm as bad as the department stores. But I was thinking of putting TWO whipped body wash fragrances up for sale sometime in mid-November. I am leaning strongly towards putting the Winter offerings of whipped body wash in the two best-selling fragrances for last season...Holiday Party and Frankincense and Myrrh. Both scents, if you have not experienced them from last year, are utterly amazing.

Scent descriptions:

Holiday Party: One of my favorites! An icy splash of of gin’s juniper berry, red currant and a hint of fresh-cut pine, with citrusy backing notes of fresh grapefruit and Italian lemon. Wintry and unisex.

Frankincense and Myrrh: Oh my goodness is this one amazing! This traditional Christmas fragrance smells deep, smoky and rich. Frankincense and Myrrh has notes of Amber and Vanilla to warm up the blend. Another lovely “unisex” scent that I am told men really, really love. Words cannot do this one justice. It's good. Trust me.

What do you think? Would you be interested in either or both of these body washes? Also, what holiday scents would you like to see, either new or returning? Let me know!


shipping status

Has everyone who ordered before Monday (morning) of last week gotten their soaps yet? What do you think so far?

Next wave of orders goes out to the post office this afternoon @ 3 pm CST! So, if you wanted anything, now would be the time to order :)


Sorry I don't have pictures this time around, my camera isn't cooperating at the moment. I'll keep trying, but in the meantime, I promised you they'd go live for sale today and here they are!


Pumpkin Spice Whipped Body Wash! A good-sized 4 oz. jar full of pumpkin heaven. Loaded with skin-soothing Sweet Almond oil for extra decadence. A little goes a long way - don't let the fluffy texture decieve you! $6/jar. LIMITED QUANTITY. First come, first serve. When they're gone, they're gone.

Almond Goatsmilk: Sweet yummy almond and creamy milk. An ivory-colored bar made with 20% goatsmilk. This one smells amazing. If you're an almond lover this is what you've been waiting for! $3.50/bar.

Chai Tea Goatsmilk Soap: I decided to do this one in goatsmilk, instead of honey. It turned out wonderfully! It has a traditional black tea base with accents of Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Tahitian Vanilla and a little bit of Allspice. It's a bit on the light side but still delicious! Latte-colored. $3.50/bar.

Lavender Vanilla Honey-based Soap: Crisp fresh lavender and sweet vanilla bean pair together to make a lovely bedtime (or anytime) treat. Unisex. Soothing, relaxing and comforting. Amethyst color. $3.50/bar.

Heather & Hyacinth Women's Shaving Soap: FINALLY! It's here! Ladies, this is one of the best scents I've ever put into a soap. It's absolutely heavenly, floral without being sweet, fresh without being masculine. I'm probably going to put this into my regular line and it's also one I'm most likely going to put into the whipped body wash line sometime in the future. It's just that good. The shave soap is loaded with emollient oils to make shaving easy. Also, this bar will have no problems getting through airport security - good for the frequent traveller. Shimmery mauve. $3.50/bar.

Brisk Mens' Shaving Soap: This fragrance is bright and fresh, but still masculine. It has hints of Eucalyptus, Ginger and Peppermint, and grounded with Thyme and the faintest touch of Amber and Musk. Good for shaving in the morning before work ;)


Upcoming Fall Products

Hello everyone!

I just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I'm planning some new fall items to be released within the next two weeks.

1) FINALLY - the debut of the Whipped Body Wash experiment that I've been promising for so long...! Barring any serious complications with production, I will be releasing a limited amount of Pumpkin Spice-scented body wash by the end of the month. This will be a thicker, fluffier-than-body-wash product in a 4 oz screw-top container, fragranced with the divinely delicious Pumpkin Spice scent, enhanced with Sweet Almond Oil for more moisturizing, emollient power. Since this is an experimental product, when it's gone, it's gone. If it proves to be popular, I'll keep it in the lineup and add additional scents.

2) GOATSMILK, SHAVING SOAP ADDITIONS - I will also be releasing limited amounts of the Mens' and Womens' Solid Shaving Soaps at the end of the month as well. The womens' has already been tested to my satisfaction and the scent is amazing. Since I am not a dude, I have tested the Mens' on my uncle, and he approves. Also, I am going to be doing a test run of creamy Goatsmilk solid soap, which will be fragranced with Almond.

3) NEW SCENTS - I am also planning on adding two new scents for the fall in the solid, honey-based soap line: Chai Tea and Lavender Vanilla.

Phew! That's a lot! I hope you all are looking forward to these new products as much as I am! :D

Thanks for your support, and I'll be talking to you soon -


Quick Poll!

Poll #1207115 Fragrance Poll!

Would you rather the upcoming bath gel(s)...

be made with existing fragrances in the catalog
be made with brand-new fragrances

If you voted for an existing fragrance, which one(s)?

Thanks for your input!

Bath gel-type stuff should be up and running by mid-July, solid shaving soap probably earlier than that. I've been ridiculously busy with school lately, but I'm working as hard as I can to get new stuff out...and pass my classes at the same time :)

Open House

Hi guys!

I'm going to be selling my soaps at a co-worker's open house this Friday (she sells deliciously addictive Tastefully Simple products) and I was hoping to get suggestions as to what fragrances I should bring!

I will definitely be bringing:
High Seas
English Rose
Ocean Rain

but I am undecided about what other fragrances I should add to the rest of the selection...what do YOU think? :)
Is there anyone who has NOT yet recieved their order? Let me know.
