Maidu Museum and Historic Site

Maidu Museum and Historic Site

Earlier this year we were in Northern California and stayed in Roseville for a couple of days for work.  We didn’t have a lot of time to look around, but managed to visit the Maidu Museum one afternoon.  The Maidu Museum and Historic Site has a very interesting exhibit on the local Native Americans found in the area, along with a really nice trail.

Lavender and Mint Handmade Soap

Lavender and Mint handmade Soap

This Lavender and Mint handmade Soap were made with a vegan glycerin soap base with added shea butter and scented with a blend of lavender, spearmint, and peppermint essential oils.  The swirling took a little time to figure out because unlike cold process soap, glycerin soap is much thinner and the colors tend to muddle if not timed correctly.  This blend is slightly herbal, just touch of floral, and a great tingle from the two mints.  I’m in love with the scent and look!
