Today I am featuring http://pepperapothecary.etsy.com/ and http://bathgasm.etsy.com/ two of my favorite shops!
First off is Pepperapothecary, she got started into making soap by boredom of being laid off from a insurance job. She says, “The phrase about idle hands was definitely made about me. I have to be active, doing something, I can't just sit around.” It all began for her one day when she found a book about making soap and everything has gone from there. She says "I tend to imagine myself as a mad scientist mixing fragrances, colors and soap base in my little laboratory.”
Pepper has two items in particular in her store that she loves rite now.
First is her Stackable Christmas Tree Soaps. I absolutely adore this!
Next is her super fun Pirate Skull Soap! Pepper has a bunch of yummy scents that you can choose from!
The creative mind behind Bathgasm is Alyson, who was actually inspired to create her business after a trip to Europe! She says, "I found a little shop while walking around Zurich, Switzerland that carried bath bombs in all their fizzy deliciousness. I was so inspired to learn how to make these fragrant pieces of art! So here I am, experimenting and loving it. I try to incorporate a little bit of the European 'live well' philosophy into every bath bomb."
Her favorite item from her store is her Raspberry Cream Cupcake bath bomb - she says, "It smells like a rich dark chocolate cupcake smothered in raspberry sauce... So decadent!"
