I agree with Roxanne about the perfumes and oils. I saw you make soaps so probably magically infused soaps could be a good idea!

Candles too!

Yes, but I plan to make vegan soaps for that. All I currently have is beef fat soaps. I am planning to start a batch tomorrow!

This is the one I made for my own altar. It has glow in the dark thread…because I am a dork. :smiley:

Glow in the dark thread is BRILLIANT, @chelsey1! I bet it looks amazing with the dim light from the candles- and such gorgeous embroidery too! :heart_eyes:

Ohhhh if you make soaps, would you consider making bath salt/bombs? Like an herbal mix to add to a bath :bathtub:.

I absolutely adore bath bombs, but so many of them are made with chemicals and icky things :sweat_smile:. I would love an all-natural herbal mix! Perhaps a purifying blend or a cleansing blend to bathe in before ritual work. I would also encourage a healing blend with oats and calendula or chamomile for those of us with sensitive skin :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:.

Please share all the exciting things you choose to make as you add them to your store! I love seeing all the creative works everyone comes up with :sparkling_heart: :star_struck:

I was thinking $35 for the altar cloths. They are a bit time consuming, but worth it!

Bath Bombs is another thing I plan on doing! I tried making one with lemon juice and baking soda, but it didn’t fizz. I will have to use citric acid. Otherwise I have dried out a ton of petals from my roses than I will powder, and make sure there isn’t large chunks of herbs. One thing that annoys me is having to scrape all the huge herbs out of my tub after a cleansing bath. Powdering them makes them go right down the drain and become one with the water, giving them a stronger effect in my opinion. I JUST got in all my bath bomb molds the other day!

I also plan on doing safer candles. I have purchased candles with herbs in them, and with the chunks of dried herbs…many times they light on fire and almost burn my house down. I am going to try powdering the herbs and see if that creates a safer candle as well. Luckily one of my fellow shop runners is a chandler. We use either soy, or natural beeswax for any candles created.

I hope to get some items on my shop today, so favorite on etsy at least: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BHistorical and stay tuned for products!

As a vegan, having the choice of soy candles sounds great! As well as the vegan soaps you mentioned earlier :blush:

Sent you a message on your Etsy site, I would like to order an altar cloth. Bath bombs are awesome, and yes some kind of candles that don’t explode!!

Ahhhh so exciting, @chelsey1 !!! :heart_eyes: :bathtub: I can’t wait to see how they turn out! I’ve made bath salt mixes in the past with different kinds of salt and herb mixtures- and you are so right about the issue of the herbs not dissolving and then having to wipe down the tub after each bath :sweat_smile:. I’ve found that herbs should either be powdered like you said, or large enough (like rose petals) to make it easy to scoop out and stop drain blockage (whoopsies!) :grin:

As much as I adore bath bombs I’ve never tried to make one for myself! I think it’s so exciting you’re giving it a go- I wish you all the best of luck, I’m sure you will come up with a fantastic mixture! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
