I have been playing around with a couple different projects - take a look at what I've done so far!
This was an experiment with pumpkin puree and cream and BB's Pumpkin Spice FO. I knew it'd discolor, so I only added the fragrance to half the soap (the side that turned brown). I really like how this one smells, and I love how the swirls turned out!
Here is a Gingersnap soap I tried with coconut milk. It took a good 3 weeks before I could tolerate the smell, though - I think the coconut milk smell is too much for me. I had also hoped it would turn more brown like the Pumpkin one above, but no such luck. And unfortunately, I used a slab mold, and these were the biggest bars I've made, and the ones I like the least... I think after another 3 weeks, I'll love them.
Here's an invigorating soap I made for my guests - it's a blend of anise and peppermint EO. Will really get you going in the morning!
I love this one the best. I am trying out a luxe formula, and this one is made with all kinds of goodies - shea butter and avocado oil, and is scented with NG's Christmas Pine FO - smells really "fir-y" and I love it!
The pattern turned out so great! I started out with a funnel pour, but the soap started to thicken too much for the funnel, so I finished with a faux funnel pour. Love how these colors look and the soap feels great!
I made some peppermint EO soaps with cream for a friend who loves mint-y soaps. The top one kind of looks like the soap's wearing a bikini :)
This one is for a friend who cannot tolerate scents or colorants. She just wanted a relatively plain bar of soap in a fun mold. I made for her a soap with honey, beeswax, and oatmeal. It smells great, and I love how it feels. The mold was only around $6 from BB, which was a bonus!
