After a long month, I got back into the soap kitchen today. I soaped a berry fragrance oil that smells very much like the SweetTarts candy. It isn't quite that sweet but it does have those notes. The fragrance oil threw me for a loop and turned my soap batter neon yellow. I've been experiencing that quite a lot recently. I used ultramarines to color the soap but they were so dull that I supplemented them with some pop micas. I made a regular loaf, a guest-sized loaf for the kids, two big hearts, and some small hearts that I might use in a later batch.
Overall, I'm very happy with today's soaping but the fragrance oil could have been a bit more compliant.
I'm not sure what I'll soap next but now that it's so hot( 95*!), I'm sure I'll be soaping more often.
