    Carrot, Citrus and Cinnamon soap made today. Used carrot puree (homemade) and aloe Juice ( home made) as 1/4 each of the water content. Added apple harvest FO very (cinnamon-ey) with sweet orange, May Chang, Cinnamon and Cedarwood EOs. Used cinnamon powder to colour half the mix.

    So this is all natural colorants? From the carrot puree and cinnamon powder? Looks great!

    I used remains of used soap bars my daughter gave me to "rebatch" into a new bar of soap. Combined it with a small amount of 100% coconut oil soap, superfatted at 12%, added some drops of FO and poured into a round mold and loaded into my carnation flower mould and a thin star mold. Placed in a warm oven to gel overnight. The batter is still soft - I'm impatient to see what I made.

    Someone recently said my carrot purée soap smells like the farmers market! I don’t know if that’s good or bad :). Did a carrot scent come through in your soap? I used it as 50% water replacement. Maybe that’s too much.

    Cut my black rose spice soap today, it is very popular and I can't seem to make enough of them. I couldn't find my hanger tool, so I used a speaker cable to make the swirls. black rose spice.jpg

    Yes, it’s totally useful :). I just recently gave away many pounds of soap (but not admitting exactly how many pounds...). Now I have an excuse to make new soap and a place to put it!

    It does smell a little 'pumpkin pie'-ish so maybe that's the carrot scent coming through.

    I tried to stencil soap last night, scented with birch wood oud from BB 66336837-B359-467D-8E43-8B1A604C33E0.jpeg
    It’s a stencil of birch trees, I used a dark grey and a black mica with vodka and a sea sponge
    After two bars- I got thinking it just wasn’t clear enough to tell what it really was
    I tried more alcohol to wipe it off and that wasn’t happening so I planed the bars again LOL

    Actually - you can easily see that it is trees. But it's better from a distance - the small thumbnail is perfect!

    These are beautiful. What's the scent? Still waiting for the interwebs to send scents....

    I unmolded the rebatched old soap remains combined with coconut soap from my carnation mould only do spoil the surface carved flower. Evidently 1,5 days was not enough for the batter to solidify whereas the ZAP subsided. Will wait one more day before I try to unmould another soap.
