Acai Berry Soap & Other Stuff

Here's the Acai Berry soap, it's so pretty and smells even better!

The Camo soap is a whole other story. It did not want to unmold at all. I thought my seal just wouldn't break on the bottom of the mold but it was just soft all over. I was not feeling patient with it so I just got it out without concerning myself over the damage I made.

The loaf is quite mangled.

I'm going to allow this to sit for a while longer to harden up a bit and then I'm going to trim it up and make travel soaps for my husband. The smaller sizes will be perfect for that. With the scraps I am going to make some soap balls.

I have had the Rainforest Pumice soap set up for quite a while but I never got around to pictures until yesterday.

Awww shucks. That's a shame. The swirls are still very pretty though!

And your Acai Berry soap looks amazing.

Very nice, I love the Rainforest Pumice one. I've had a few soaps turn out like that and I do what I call surgery where I get a really flat knife with no sharp edges and I smooth the bars so they look almost perfect. If needed I bevel them flat so they look fine. If they aren't able to be saved though guest size soaps sound like a great idea.

The Acay Berry is pretty cool.
Dont worry about the other little disaster, every body know how you feel, they are situations that sometimes happens.

Thanks all! I am still letting the camo one set up but I'll make sure I make some sort of use out of it. :)

Yeah, my Antique Lilac soap never did set up, so I'm going to chunk it up and put it in another lilac batch this week. Did you increase your soft oils too much? How much do you discount your water/liquids? That's what usually saves me! Acai Berry looks great!!

Holly said...

Thank you Amy. The camo soap was the exact same recipe as the Acai except that it had the avocado in it. I reduced the water but the avocado must have been the cause.
