    Gemstone Soaps! (1st attempt)

    Gemstone Soap These are beautiful, how did you get the shapes? Did you use a mold or just random cuts when you cut up the soap???? What about June - my original stone is Alexandrite a pretty pinky purpley color. You can't find (or if you do) afford the stone anymore since it is SO rare

    Beer Soap, Wine Soap, Pepsi Soap?

    1 Weird Problem

    I used Balsam & Citrus Fragrance Oil from Elements Bath & Body, and my recipe called for 3.5 oz but I toned it down to 3 oz for the whole loaf. I must have used to much of the Black Oxide but at the time I didn't think so. Hey Maitri what did you use for your Raiders soap??? Huh tell me...
