Do you have power yet?

yellow clay added to lye water for Lemongrass Sage Shea Butter Soap

In Houston, instead of “How are you?” people are asking “Do you have power at your place yet?” I don’t. I don’t mind not having electricity personally (It’s been a week), but it’s hard to run an immersion blender (the thing I mix soap with) without power. I might have to move the soapmaking operation to another site, but I’m hoping it won’t come to that. 77006 is on the “might get power today” list. Yesterday I made a batch of lavender vanilla lotion bars on the stove. (double boiler) This afternoon I’ll be making chocolate bon bon soaps on the stove to restock the Indie Fixx Shop. Thankfully I have running water, gas and sunlight for a couple of hours when I get home from the hospital. My soapy intern Sarah doesn’t have power either (77098) at her house, but she’s coming in to work with me for a couple of hours. What a trooper! I am so thankful to have help in the shop.

As soon as I can, I will have pictures up of the new soaps I have made for you! Lemongrass Sage, Coconut Lemongrass, Oakmoss Sandalwood, Pearberry, Black Forest & Frasier Fir are just a few new soaps I have made that need pictures added to the site, but are in stock and ready to ship now.

Post Hurricane Ike Post

The Feto Soap workspace did not sustain any damage! We are without power, but still able to process orders, so if you were thinking about holding off on your order because of Hurricane Ike, don’t! The United States Postal Service has been running regularly since Monday so your soapy orders are still able to go out. I have a cell phone with internet and am able to charge it in the car when the battery runs low.
