I have three soaps that I recently had fun playing with. My first was Kumquat. A very nice scent from Bramble Berry. I actually just purchased the fragrance as a last minute buy. Not really thinking whether it may be something I wanted to soap with. I am glad for my impulse shopping. I really like it :). Here is the description: bright, fresh, purple with notes of green.
It was wonderfully to soap with and will be a keeper for my fragrance shelf
For my next soap I decided to go a little natural, except for adding fragrance :). I wanted to try a Chamomile soap.
I had some Chamomile Tea on hand so I ended up heating up some distilled water and had the tea bags brew over night in the water. I also used a little bit of Apricot Kernel Meal for light exfoliation and the Chamomile fragrance oil from Bramble Berry sealed the deal. Here is the final product:
I am pretty happy with it, and have now picked up some interest on "natural, simple" looking soap. It is beautiful in its own way and I think my little bars are not bad!
Now for the ending I had some Iced Pineapple fragrance oil from Nature's Garden. I debated on what to do for color theme and ended up with neon yellow and green. The fragrance did really well. I certainly had no problems soaping with it, but the scent did not come through well. It has faded a little bit. Here's a pic:
I am hoping to do some soaping during this holiday weekend. I have one soap batch that I just finished which is another "natural" look. I am hoping to post a blog by the end of this weekend.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
