Olive Oil and Goat Milk Shave Rounds-creamy and luxurious goodness for your skin.
Ahhh, I made a batch of shave rounds today-the first time I've soaped in probably a month and the longest break I've taken from soap in 4 years. I was a bit worried that after my bout of soaping issues I would struggle a bit with making a batch after what seems like forever, but as it turns out it's like riding a bicycle. My hiatus has been a good thing for the first time in a very long time my mind went to other non soap related things. I took time to see the world around, I took time not to obsess about all things soap related-mostly that urgent need to "market" it, and you know what? I have had a few good things come up behind the scenes in my soaping world all while I wasn't worrying about it all-good things I never expected. So, just when I was about to "throw in the towel" I think I'm finding a second wind to push on ahead to see where it takes me.
I totally enjoyed making a simple batch today. No pressure, no worries, just a peaceful pleasure. It turns out that for me a break was a very productive thing. I've learned that it's very important for me to take time to do things that fuel my spirit, and I've learned that all the obsessing was counter productive to abundance. So if you're ever stuck and things seem to be an uphill battle-I highly recommend a short break. ;-) It'll do you good.
