Peppermint Patty Soap

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

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.
