I like cutting into a new loaf of soap. I can design how I want it on the outside, but sometimes the inside can be a complete mystery until you cut into it.
This particular soap is made with real cocoa and peppermint essential oil. Mmmm and it smells just like a peppermint patty. I can’t wait to try it out. It’s going to be a long 4 weeks of waiting until I can give this one a whirl.
I love soaps. No, not the soaps on TV, but soaps you make. I made this blend yesterday using all natural oils and an scent that reminds me of sweet tarts.
I was a little concerned because I used a fuchsia colorant and it looked brown. While I liked how it looked, it didn’t have the pop to match the scent that I was going for.
But after it sat for awhile I started to see the coloring come up to what I imagined in my mind. This morning, after cutting the slab into bars, this is what I had.
Yes, I am a happy soap lover this today.
