    I decided to switch my entry to a simpler soap. It just seemed more - well - minimalistic.

    Please don't include my other entry. It had an edit button a few minutes ago but I can no longer delete it now.

    Such a lovely minimalist soap. It hs the look of granite. May I ask the percentage of salt you used in this soap per pound of oils? I would purchase this soap because of the granite look and also the hint of swirled hearts!

    I love the Moon over Miami soap also and the photography of that soap is outstanding!

    The Carabou soap earthiness is stunning in its simplicity of technique but outstanding color and placement. Great soap too!

    Looking forward to January challenge and joining you all! Happy New Year!

    Thank-you for your lovely comments :-D

    The salt is local sea salt, at 50% of oil weight, so half a pound of salt for every pound of oil.
