The next full moon is Thursday, March 8th,2012, so I will begin my monthly product giveaway 
 Blue Moon Handcrafted Soap made with Organic Coconut Milk. 
This soap is only made once a month on a full moon and contains 13 essential oils. 

The very first time I made Blue Moon Soap just happened to be on a full moon. I was out in my studio picking out ingredients but not quite sure what I was looking for in this new soap. It was a warm summer night, the Moon was particularly bright & beautiful. You could feel the energy. I intuitively chose acai berry powder (I think I was drawn to the beautiful dark mauve color) and blueberry fruit powder as an exfoliant. I added 13 essential oils: Litsea, Bergamot, Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Ginger, Rosewood, Lemongrass, Citronella, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Cinnamon and Neroli.

After I poured the soap into the mold and covered it, I lit some candles, turned out the lights, did a Reiki ceremony and behold Blue Moon became not only a monthly soap making tradition but one of my most popular soaps!
*Reiki ~ (Ray-Key) is an ancient healing art rediscovered in Japan in the 1800's by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is a japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, the ocean of energy which is all around us.

The blissful state reveals itself as a shining light, as a luminescence permeating the still field of the mind. There is a sense of light from an undefined "above," silence, a fullness of vitality, and deep rest.

Thought I would share some of the inspiration for my new perfume "Playa Cocoa".

Playa Cocoa reminds me of the night we dined at a quaint restaurant under the stars, warm tropical breezes blowing the intoxicating scent from the Ylang Ylang tree nearby. Fresh brewed coffee and dessert....

Costa Rica is a beautiful and diverse country of beaches, volcanoes, rain forests, flora, fauna and wild life.
