Here is the second batch today. It is Spearmint/Lavender. I cut up lavender bars into 1" X 3" mini logs and embedded then in a base scented with spearmint FO. Confetti on top.

Cooooool. so are those little mini bars pushed down all the way...like the confetti on top does one piece go through the whole soap or is it just a 'sprinkle' on top of it??

looks cool!

Ian, those are shavings and chopped up confetti on top. The mini bars are down inside the log. I'll cut in the morning and show cut pics. Should turn out really cool.

Very cool bars of soap. I had to giggle, when looking at your photos and seeing your ingredients I was like "yep, there is the coco. oil, that looks like a bottle of fragrance from Paige!" lol. k

I am a newbie......

This may be a dumb question...but since I am new to soapmaking....I guess its ok to ask....What do you use the Crisco for? Also, where do you get your big brown glass bottles of oils?

I buy the Crisco in 6 pound cans at Sams. I use it in my veggie recipe for soap. A better deal is the 50 pound blocks of Bakers & Chief's hydrogenated soybean oil for $45.00.

The brown bottles are FO's from certain vendors. Some ship in plastic, the better companies ship in amber glass jars. One company I buy from ships in aluminum containers. :wink:

Thanks for the compliments. :)

Ok Paul....This is the newbie...again......

Any suggestions on where I can go buy inexpensive olive oil and coconut oil?


PS....your soaps look awesome

To save shipping, I buy my coconut oil from Wal-Mart and my olive oil from Sams.
