I tried to make lotion...

    for a fundraiser

    These are for my church's auction coming up. I've posted some pics of these before but the soaps are rosemary, lavender, orange, and bergamot. The lotion bars are scented with plumeria FO I got while in Hawaii on vacation.

    The dog ate my lotion bar...

    Yes, the title says it all. I'm a new soap maker, and my projects are very hit and miss. Last week, I made some lotion bars, and for the first time, I felt I made something really good full of good stuff, beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter, etc... mostly organic. I put one on the...
