    Made a batch with hinoki woods FO, it accelerated and heated in the mold. Good thing it smells so dang good.

    Should be able to cut it as soon as it cools

    Holy cow. What a combo to have to deal with. Gotta love those troublemakers. I’m sure it’ll be lovely.

    It's still pretty, and if you love the scent I'm sure you will love it. Where was the FO from?

    That is just plain naughtiness, but it does still look nice. Where did you get the fragrance, if I may ask?

    Yes, its from the sage. Its such a wonderful deep woodsy scent but kinda sweet at the same time.
    The crack closed up some once the loaf cooled a little. I got impatient and cut it already. It was still warm and a little soft.

    If I remember right, it will discolor some. The yellow base is uncolored. Used brown oxide on the rest.

    They look really nice Obsidian. I might have to try the fragrance, sounds like something I would like. The Sage has really nice fragrances.

    Nice soap! Brown oxide! I didn’t know there is such a thing.

    I could send you a sample if you like. Nothing like buying a bottle to discover you hate it.

    I love brown oxide. It almost has a reddish tone that blends well. Add black for a chocolate brown or iron oxide for a rusty shade.

    I'll get it out today or tomorrow. Just gotta remember where I stashed my little bottles.

    @cmzaha final discoloration, its actually a bit darker in person. I should have done a red swirl, it would go well with the brown.

    Red would certainly work. I have not had a chance to try it yet. Even a bright yellow or orange.

    It turned out nicely. I use brown oxide quite a bit.

    Some gold mica lines or swirls would look nice too.
