Romzek Creations is an Etsy shop run by Frances in Michigan, where she enjoys making soaps from natural ingredients that are nourishing and healing for your skin. As most soapers do, she loves all that goes into soaping, from the beginning stages of creating a new recipe to designing the finished look and feel.
Frances has been soaping for a decade and learned from her Mom how to make cold processed soaps. All soaps are made using the cold process soap method, which is simply mixing oils and fats with lye until they become soap. Did you know it can take 6-8 weeks before each batch is fully cured (dried) and ready to be used? I thought it would be some kind of overnight process, but I was totally wrong.
Because curing soap is the longest part of the process, a lot of thought goes into planning and preparing each batch to be ready in time for the upcoming seasons and the harsh weather conditions on our skin.
Pictured above is the pink grapefruit soap, crafted with pink Himalayan salt to exfoliate, and Shea butter to moisturize. Use this sweet, citrus scent in the morning for a great way to energize your day.
The pink mica swirls sparkle on top making it almost too pretty to use - these are Frances' words, not mine. Although I do agree it looks way too nice to get all foamy and dirty. Very well made.
Another one I'd like to feature is the lavender soap, handmade with cleansing coconut oil and moisturizing olive oil.
Made with lavender essential oil, this blossomy fragrance is bound to calm and soothe your senses. My wife swears by this scent.
Did you know lavender has many health benefits? Some of the notables include the ability to eliminate nervous tension, nurture the skin, and treat respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash," due to the clean aroma.
To make your soap last even longer, store it on a dish or out of direct contact with water when it's not being used. The soap will disintegrate if it sits in any water. If you ever have any questions about Frances' products, she encourages you to ask!
