    Parallel Patchouli

    I posted in another thread that the smell of ylang ylang was rather offensive to me.....but, I put litsa cubeba, geranium rose, patchouli, and ylang ylang in this bar and I think it smells great. I used a spirulina infusion for the green color, and cocoa powder for my lines.

    Going back to Pomace Olive Oil

    I stopped using the Pomice OO when I was able to find regular OO at wally world cheaper than ordering OO(due to shipping). I notice my soap batters are more yellow, and that tends to turn all my purple colorants gray. Even my ultramarine violet. So I am going back.:Kitten Love:
