The concept for Serenity came from the essential oil blend that I developed comprises 5 Fold Orange, Bourbon Geranium, lemony May Chang (or Litsea as it's also called), deep dark Indonesian Patchouli and one of my utter favourite, exotic floral Ylang Ylang. The name came from this blend and then the design for the soap came after. Of course, the goodies in the soap came first - as they rightly should, after all, we buy soap to use on our skin, not just to sit and stare at all day! I hate when people say "it's too good to use" .. no way, all my soaps are made for your skin first, for design second! Anyway, the skin goodies include Aloe Vera, organic Green Yogurt, Goatsmilk, Coconut Milk, Sweet Almond & Golden Olive oils, tons of creamy Cocoa Butter, white, pastel pink and pale pink clay, cocoa powder and it's all topped with dried rose petals. I have to tell you that this is going to be a stunner to use and a stunner to look at!!!
