The heat is on! Just 4 more days until we take our products to market. My place looks a candy factory boiler exploded in there. Bath bombs, soaps, labels everywhere. It doesn’t help that Leo is trying to lick a mixture of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid off the floor because he thinks it’s edible caramel powder.
We are having some lovely delights for the market. First and foremost, our soaps. We’ll bring an eclectic mix of lemongrass, espresso, ginger & honey, green tea and oatmeal soaps. There’ll be body butters with lavish amounts of shea, mango and cocoa butter ingredients, grapefruit salt scrub and bath salts. And we’ll bring our problem child. The bath bombs.
We left it to last preparing the bombs because we thought it was going to be a stroll in the park. Well… as per usual we were wrong. Austin built a mad contraption for custom made bath bombs after our snowball maker proved to be inadequate for round bath bombs. So after a lot of hammering and sanding and drilling we went ahead only to find out that our bombs regularly broke straight in the middle (that had the price of the bath bomb go up immediately…). Argh, super frustrating. Only 25 more to go… 😉
