Pamplemousse is my favorite French word. I've always thought that it is the cutest word... it's fun to say and fun to imagine what it could possibly mean. Since I was such a great French student for six years :) I know that Pamplemousse is French for GRAPEFRUIT! Isn't that just perfect?
In keeping with my Cold Process Addiction and to celebrate the return of my bubble groove, I am naming my latest batch Pamplemousse. I love it and I know you will, too! I have been sniffing a bottle of Juicy Grapefruit fo for awhile now. It's tart, mouth-watering, fresh, vibrant... I really like it. In a moment of "where did that come from?" I decided to blend it with a rose fo that I don't really like but that some of my customers adore. I did it 4:1 grapefruit:rose. I love what happened when they married! It mellows the grapefruit just enough to round out the scent. Yay!
To keep it fun I added some Pink Himalayan Sea Salts on top and I threw in some rose petal for visual interest and for exfoliation... I'm not sure about the petals. I also added gobs of shea butter. Soft skin here I come!
I can't wait to put it on Etsy! Only 3 weeks and 6 days to go....
