Wildflower Soaps

While I was out playing with wildflowers the other day, I picked some clover and dandelion to dehydrate–then I made soap! I’ve made quite a bit of soap lately. Here is a sampling of the different soaps I’ve made in the past week or so.

The brown sugar and oatmeal soap and the cinnamon sugar soap are regulars that I make quite a bit.

It’s made with dried wild white clover and clover honey.

It’s made with dried dandelion flowers and a bit of the leaves.

It was fun, and made some pretty soaps! If you don’t know how to make soap, I have a step-by-step tutorial here: Hot Process Soap in a Crock Pot. For the wildflower soaps, I used the recipe you can find in that tutorial, adding about a tablespoon of the dried wildflowers.

And you can see all posts in soapmaking here.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
