    The last of my paste, diluted and displayed in my new foamer pump. The glass is clear; the color is from popcorn oil, which is nothing more than coconut oil tinted with beta carotene. Granted, it's neither clear nor the pearly sheen sought by diehard liquid soapers, but I had to try the natural colorant in this new (to me) way.

    It is scented with sweet, citrusy, scrumptious grapefruit EO, which makes me so happy and seemingly lasts forever in liquid soap.

    The recipe was Irish Lass's creamy cocoa/shea GLS, which I initiated over a year and a half ago. I loved the process, the recipe, and the color - So despite using most of the soap long ago, I hoarded the last portion of paste til I could find a proper replacement for the boring re-purposed white plastic pump that I had been using. I only wish I had shopped for it moons ago!

    Thanks IL, for literally putting this beautiful soap in my hands.

    Looks good, CaraBou! I have never bought that oil, thinking I'd be too tempted to start making popcorn every day.
