I have some clays on hand and just recently received a free sample of nettle leaf powder from Soap Making Resource :). I love freebies!
I wasn't sure if I should use a fragrance or just leave it as is. In the end the fragrance called out to me and I decided to use Bramble Berry's Apricot Freesia. This was one of the first fragrances that I tried when I started to do Melt and Pour soap. I loved it then and I still love it now. It's not too strong and it's a nice light scent...too bad that I did not have enough on hand for my batch. So I sort of short handed my soap a bit and did not fragrance it as much. Oops.
For colors I used Bramble Berry's rose clay, kaolin clay, and like I mentioned above; nettle leaf powder from Soap Making Resource.
Here is my final product:
I really liked the green that the nettle leaf powder gave out. A nice soft green :). I did end up using a little more rose clay than I was going for, but I'm still OK with the final results.
I am in the middle of trying to finish the Peacock Swirl Challenge. So far I've had two failed attempts and I am going to give it a go one more time :)
I have also been thinking of doing a short soap survey. I have been playing with my soap recipe and I am undecided which one I like the best. I have been toying with the idea of offering up a couple of bars of soap to some of my soap blog friends to give me some feedback. Stay tuned if you are interested :)
