    I can't wait until I can cut this one.

    Scented with Lime EO (one of the very rare EO's I will use in soap - going to be very sad when it's gone)

    Very pretty soap. Is that EO hard to get?

    Thank you!
    The place I got this particular EO went out of business a couple years ago and I've been hoarding it. It was strong, sticks in CP, and it was inexpensive. I can get it other places, and I'm sure the quality will be just as good, but I doubt I'll get it as inexpensively.

    Very nicely done.
    Lime is my new favourite scent. My first batch of it I mixed EO with a FO and it has stuck lovely. Than my supplier stopped carrying the FO, boo. I have just found another supplier for it though.

    Thank you everyone.
    I'm hoping when I cut it, the black is just as deep, the green just as bright and the white is bright. It's a lot to ask for, but I think it'll happen. I make a similar one only pink with love spell scent. It sells out every time I make it.

    I never considered doing a plain Lime scent. I always mix it with other things. (Happy Man + Lime, Mango Lime, Lime spice, etc.)

    Your soap is gorgeous. I am also hording 2 lbs of Lime (Brazil) that I used to purchase from NDA. They do not have that particular Lime and I am so glad I purchased 2 lbs, sorry I did not purchase 5. It is a lime that sticks well

    @jcandleattic, what do you use to sprinkle your glitter on so evenly?

    Those pump sprayer things. I got mine at Mad Micas but most suppliers that sell glitter and mica sell them. Since most people like and buy from Nurture, here is a link to what I use -

    I got this from Soapmaking Resource. Just a plain Lime. I'm sure I have the certificate somewhere. I got a lb of it and I'm down to my last ounce or 2. I have a soap I made with it from about 3-4 years ago that still smells great. I'm sure I can get a Lime EO from a lot of other places, however when I bought this, it was like only $25 a lb or something like that.

    Well of course inflation hits us all but NDA has 4 limes to choose from. All are in the $40's except the organic. I'd love to hear from anyone else that uses a lime that sticks. As I said I've only used mine from NDA in blends.
