  1. Just thinking about how lucky we are to be in such a beautiful part of the world in such a tranquil environment. The only sounds the humming of the bees, the chirp of the crickets and the tinkle of goats bells as they clamber up the mountain.

    The olives are swelling , it's only a short while left till they are harvested and I am making a 100% Olive Oil Soap with the remnants of last years. This won't be a true "Castille Soap" as I do intend to introduce some mineral colour and a bit of fragrance. I usually like to combine a little coconut oil with my olive as it makes for a harder, long lasting bar and, in my opinion, a nicer lather, but this is a special order so we will see how it turns out! I am making a backup of my usual formulation just in case.

    Till next time!
