A Couple of Weeks Ago

I made these soaps a couple of weeks ago and basically forgot to post about them. :-)

The first I did was a remake of Crushed. Instead of using melt and pour hearts, I used the little heart soaps I made from the leftover Kaleidosoap batter. I think I like the smaller hearts a lot better. I had made some multi-colored hearts and those were the most fun to use. This scent is a blend of sparkling oranges and lemons, with accents of fresh linen, violets, and jasmine. I added in some blood orange essential oil to take the orangeness up a notch.






Then I made a batch of Chocolate Oatmeal soap. There is no fragrance added to this one. This soap has brown sugar, colloidal oatmeal, double doses of cream and cocoa butter, and a cocoa powder swirl. I don't know about you, but I love to have a drizzle of chocolate syrup in my oatmeal every now and again. I eat oatmeal about once a year, and put chocolate in it about every other time. So yeah, it's been a couple of years but maybe tomorrow... :-) Sure does sound good after writing up this post!




As of tonight, all of my orders are caught up, all my soap dishes are washed, and my soaping room is organized again. Tomorrow is a day to play!

I love these soaps Holly! The chocolate oatmeal soap sounds so decadent with the extra cocoa butter and cream, and I love the 'broken' hearts on the crushed soap! =)

Beautiful soaps, Holly! The "Crushed" soap is a cute play on the Valentine's theme. And I looove how the Chocolate Oatmeal soap turned out! Those are some gorgeous swirls!

The next time you make Chocolate Oatmeal can you make us a video so we can see you do those beautiful swirls? I'm in love.
