three soapsIf you make your own soap as I do, then you probably get a hankering for creating some fresh, clean scented soaps for summer.

And again, if you are like me, you only use essential oils and other natural essences to scent your soaps.

Sometimes creating blends can be tricky, especially for beginners, because you aren't quite sure how to balance the different scents out, or maybe your scent blends evaporate too quickly out of the soap because they aren't grounded well.

Here are some classic and some not-so-familiar blends, kept simple, that you might enjoy this summer.
