I am really behind on blogging! Yikes! I've made four batches of soap in the last four or five days. I'm thrilled with all of them!
On Sunday I made Pink Posy and Snow Soaps. I was wanting very light colored soaps after the Pink Sugar fiasco. Pink Posy is a beautiful soft floral blend of violets, gardenia, jasmine, and also a touch of grapefruit and vanilla. I enhanced the white and did an in-the-mold swirl in pale pink.
The other soap I made on Sunday is called Snow. It's been so hot that I really needed to focus on something cool. This soap is very winter-like in look and scent. It is scented with an essential oil blend of fir needle, eucalyptus, and peppermint. Not only does it have a 'cold' scent but it was also be cool and refreshing when we use it too.
This afternoon I made two more soaps and they are extremely colorful! The first I made is called Citrus Pop and it has a delightful scent blend of pink grapefruit and litsea essential oils. This blend is one of my favorites. This time I decided to play up the colors and colored it pink, yellow, orange, and green. It's very sherbet-y!
The second soap I made was a remake of Fruitylicious. The last time I made it, I used some yellow soap balls that promptly removed themselves from my soap upon cutting. Grr! I used six colors this time and it will be much more jazzy! This is a delicious fruity scent (thus Fruitlicious) and is a scent combo of leafy greens, pineapple, coconut, cherries, peaches, jasmine, violets, and a touch of vanilla.
