I made these a few months ago. So they are nice and cured.

This is After Dark - Sweet Orange, Peppermint & Rosemary EOs. Raspberry pop with Yellow pop swirls. I was hoping raspberry would come out darker. Oh well.



Next is Citrus Floral - Grapefruit, Lavender, & Rosemary. Raspberry, Grape and Green Apple Pop colors. Grape took over, but I was pleasantly pleased with swirls, considering these were my first semi-successful ones. (sorry for the fuzzy soap - but the TV is clear!)



I'm not happy with the next - I tried a salt bar - this was my second try. I used 80% coconut, 20% shea, and 60% salt. Minty Herbal blend - Peppermint, Rosemary & Clary Sage. Used green clay for the color. It's crumbly still. I did only a 5% superfat. Think it could be that or the clay? Any advise would be welcome!



I love this next scent - Poseidon, has Eucalyptus, Lemongrass & Rosemary. I divided batter, added grape pop to one and blue pop to other, mixed both to a pretty good trace, then poured both at same time into mold, and used end of thermometer for swirl. This was one of my favs.



Another fun one - Sparkling Spring - EOs Lavender, Lemongrass & Clary Sage. I divided batter in half, blue pop in one and apple green in other, then took turns pouring first blue, then green, blue, green, etc. Then used whisk to swirl colors. I cut in cubes to be different. I definitely used too much blue in this - lather has a blue tinge.



And lastly, Titania. I used more blue than I wanted. EO's are Grapefruit Lavender, & Palmarosa. Tangerine pop with blue swirls. Like the smell though.



That's it for now.

Love to see soap after it AGES.
Photos of a freshly-cut soap containing cucumber pulp makes me wonder. LOL
All your soap looks great! Way to go!
