Saponification Saturday

Hard to believe Christmas is just two weeks away. This year the family will be getting lots of creative gifts. Hope they're up for that. Now, on to soap. I had fun with this bar,  by keeping my mold tilted while I poured the three layers. Also enjoyed playing with the top of it, building in deep swirls with the end of a metal spoon.


 

The color above is more true to the bar, a pretty grey blue for the top layer (colored with oil infused alkanet powder) and a very dark navy blue on the bottom (colored with indigo powder). Scented with a blend of Lavender, Patchouli and Rosemary, this is a hippies herbal dream. I have 10 bars available.





The next bar is less dramatic visually, but rich in scent, as I used a deep pine essential oil. A whiff of this is like rolling around in a forest of Christmas trees, over run with reindeer, all wearing little red hats. Pure Christmas.



It's colored with titanium dioxide for whiteness and a mix of Spirulina and Nettle Leaf powder. I also have ten bars of this soap available. Both bars are made with coconut, olive, sweet almond oils and 10% Shea butter which results in a soap that is rich in thick lather and very moisturizing.

My soap bars are a hunky handful and are $5 each plus postage. Email me at opies99@gmail.com if you'd like to order.

  1. Gawd . . . you should write for a cafe or a sex shop. You make it all sound so sensuous & slightly naughty - I'm not sure if I want to eat it or rub it all over my body.

  2. It looks so good, I'm sure I would want to just look at it and small it rather than use it. Would you be able to do a step by step blog on your soap making?

  3. That swirly soap looks so good that I want to eat it. It's kind of like meringue or whipped cream.

    Love,

    1. Still, when Keith washes my mouth out, it tastes just like soap.
