    Salt bars for my mama

    I'm not too fond of salt bars but I've discovered that my mother loves them. These were mixed, poured, and cut within 1 1/2 hours during the wee hours of the morning. Scented with Rustic Escentuals sea salt and rice flower FO.

    Thank you! It was a bit underwhelming once cut after staring at that top, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. I just need to learn when enough is enough with the spoon!

    The cut soap. Not exactly what I wanted but I spoon swirled way more than I wanted to. Excuse the bad lighting.

    It's cut! I forgot to take a picture, it was rather soft since I couldn't wait. I'll take one once I get home.

    Christmas Mint Soap

    This is beautiful! What percent did you use for the menthol crystals? I have a friend who wants peppermint soap with menthol, but she wants the menthol really strong. Like, REALLY strong.

    Me neither! It's mostly white with a very light blue drop/spoon swirl. I may have gone crazy with the spoon though, so we'll see.

    Made some soap! Yay!!! Helps to actually have a minute to relax, especially when the entire family decides to go to sleep at 7. (The kids are actually adults, so there's always someone up late.) White Velvet Bow from Rustic Escentuals. Very pretty, very strong!!!

    SMF October 2016 Soap Challenge- Spoon Swirl

    I dropped my soap! I hope my (quick, make another one) backup will be ready to cut before the entry thread closes. That's what I get for waiting until the last minute.

    Show your January 2016 Soaps!

    This one I just made a few minutes ago. It's a combination of orange spice and vanilla ice cream FOs and smells like butterscotch. I haven't had time to soap since before thanksgiving. Feels good to be able to start again!

    80% Lard Soaps..OK, I Get it Now.

    I've discovered that soaping while tired is a I tried making a salt brine 80% lard bar and added double the salt to the water. Needless to say, I had to strain out the excess salt but so far it's really nice. I scented it with rosemary and spearmint. Even with my blunder, I can tell that this is...

    Some "lush"ious soaps

    Thank you! My youngest (14) actually made the last soap. She went stir crazy with the spoon for the in the pot swirl. I thought she had blended the colors together but I think she did an amazing job! Funny thing is, with the Rock Star dupe, the fake plasticy smell is what I like about it!

    Some "lush"ious soaps

    Here are a few soaps I've done with Lush dupes. In order, Breath of God, Rock Star, and So White. The Lush dupes are pretty spot on, especially rock star! I threw in an extra soap scented with a Cashmere Mist dupe.

    Fragrance Buddy reviews

    I soaped So White last night and it went beautifully. I added the fo at about 3.5% but used full water because I was teaching my daughter's friend how to make soap. It was very fluid when I poured but solidified pretty quickly. I think this is the one I wasn't sure about when sniffing the...

    Fragrance Buddy reviews

    I've soaped with Breath of God already and it smells amazing! I've given my sister her share of soaps to finish curing at her house and she says it smells identical to her solid perfume. It did discolor a bit though, I'm assuming to a light tan. My sister wanted a blue green and it muddied the...
