I hate cutting soap, so I finally just bought some cavity molds. I think I need to refigure my recipe amounts. .
The first one has lime and orange essential oils, with a little arrowroot powder to hopefully help anchor the scent like cornstarch is supposed to. I hope it works, because it smells awesome!
The second one was supposed to be kinda swirly (half just soap, half with ground up green tea and spearmint leaves), but it started setting up too fast and so I ended up having to glop in in from the 2 halves. That's why it looks so sloppy. I think it will look ok once unmolded.
This recipe (high tallow) takes forever to trace, but doesn't give you much time to work once it does.
