I love swaps. I confess, I have a whole box of swap soaps that haven't been used. They're so pretty. I like to pick them up and smell them and fondle them. I have 6 bars in my shower right now. I suppose I'm saving them for the zombie apocalypse.

I admit I still have some soaps from several swaps laying around. I've tried them all but kept the remains to go back and keep admiring them. I love swaps for all the variety I keep, even though my hubby hates my crazy stashes. 😍

I tested everything that was ready really fast. Then I carefully placed them on their labels in a basket so I would know who made what. Everything is awesome! I use one a week so I rotate through them.

^^^I need to do that. So far I have only tested the "non-soap" items and the soap 2 go.

Osso: I put your Lake Life bar into the shower. Both of my kids were drawn to the bright blue and white. We all really like it. First time I have used a soap with sal butter. I've added some to my next NDA order to play with.

This is a soap maker in "hog heaven".

We have a display of your soaps in the living room.

I think my Aleppo soap has come down with a case of DOS A few orange spots on the top ridges of the rose. I meant to take a picture to post for confirmation, but I couldn't get myself coordinated enough. Should I start using it so the DOS doesn't spread or let it sit for the full cure, hoping that it will still be useable in the end?

Also, I don't think anything was wrong with the making of the soap - my cure rack was in questionable circumstances for the last 6 weeks during the move. I have several soaps made prior to moving and left on the cure rack that are "not quite right".

Mine has morphed to all brown but does not smell rancid, the earthy smell just mellowed out. Attached is what mine looks like on the bottom, the top is all brown

I've been MIA for a little bit, but glad to hear you liked it. I really love the sal butter!

I've been enjoying my swap soaps slowly, especially since I've been in a soaping drought for a while. Will pull out some of my notes soon.

Most recently I used and loved the peach neroli
