I Done Made Soap

The unsliced logs. Top is Indian Chai with cardamom (ground and whole), and all the chai'y essential oils (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger and black pepper). It smells just like a warm creamy mug of its namesake -- mmmmmm! Bottom is coconut which is made using extra virgin coconut oil, and it smells very toasty and beachy.

Love both of these. I will be listing them in my Etsy store when they cure at the start of October.

Next in line is a mint-aniseed blend which is the freshest most energising scent I think I have ever smelled (can't wait to make it, and more so, use it), and the classic springtime scent of Lily-of-the-Valley. I am May-born, and that's my flower. Another divine scent. Yummy yum! I love soaping!

Yeap, the soaps are making me hungry (which adds new meaning to "wash your mouth out with soap"). I also love making soap, but don't have your patience. I've even made soap with my Girl Guide unit. They loved the "danger" aspect of it. Lots of safety glasses wearing. Was fun.

They look great. I've never tried making soap, one day I'll get to it :)

I saw your review of Zart Art, that's so weird, I was going to write a review today!

Thanks you guys!

Tomorrow I'm snapping pics of the slices so I can list them on Etsy.
