These are three that I have on the curing rack, and two more that are still in the mold.



From the left, there's Secret Forest (Cedarwood & Eucalyptus EO, and alfalfa leaf powder), Sandman (Cedarwood & Lavender EO, Lavender Flower powder), and Happy Feet (Lavender, Peppermint & Tea Tree EO, Calendula petal powder).

I got the EO blends from Rainbow Meadow. Love that site.



Here is Oatmeal and Honey. I toasted the oatmeal before I ground it coarsely. No EO, but it smells good. I have yet to cut it.



And my latest, Ease Me - Lavender, Rosemary & Tea Tree EOs, tumeric for color. I did CPOP this one. This is after I poured and before oven.

I also played around with some POP colors - I'm going to post those on another topic. I just like the natural colors better personally. I ordered some from Emporium Naturals - can't wait to try them.

Did that on purpose :wink: :wink:

I feel fairly comfortable making one color soap right now - especially with using just EOs vs FOs. I'm trying to get the hang of swirling and different designs - I'm amazed by some of the soap I've seen on here. Like the chamomile (I think the title was something like sliced two today). I was in awe.

The turmeric soap looks like it will be a very interesting color! Can't wait to see cut pics!

Thanks about the soap.

Alas, not creekside - home made. I made four of these out of pine wood 2 x 4's and wood screws. Did not have money to buy molds. I'm not a carpenter - some of the wood screws caused the wood to crack, but did not affect the mold. I found Keith's tutorial on making molds after, and perhaps will make more later using his tut.

They work satisfactorily for me! If you go to Home Depot or Lowes, they will cut your wood for you. I had them cut 3 pieces the same length, then used a hacksaw to cut the end pieces. Later I bought a band saw. Now I want one of those oscillating tools - I think dremmel is the one I have my eye one - but first I need $100. Might have to save that dream for x-mas.
