Recently I discovered Rustic Escentuals, and decided to try some of their fragrances. I was pretty excited to find Whisper among their selections. Now why is that important? because it smells just like Herbal Essence Shampoo and I LOVE THAT SCENT!!!
I happily gathered my supplies and thought of a pretty color theme. I decided to go with a soft pink and green. To me that fragrance has always been a nice, soft, floral/tropical scent and I did not want the color to be too bright. I also was not sure how this fragrance would behave so I decided for sure to soap at cool temperatures.
I was envisioning some nice fluid swirls. I was hoping that everything would work out. Everything seem to be working great until I poured the fragrance in the soap batter. Boy, did it start to rice pretty quick. It was actually kind of cool to watch and also a little heartbreaking as I tried not to panic. I ended up having to stick blend and smooth it down a bit.
I had to certainly toss the idea of fluid swirls. I was able to split the batch to color and by the time I poured the batter on the mold I was doing more spoon flopping than pouring =(. I grabbed a spoon to do some type of swirls and packed this baby in the fridge and put it away for the night.
Here are the result:
If you look closely you will see that this soap actually started to gel in the middle. I was able smooth much of the soap down that some of the ricing was tamed down. I LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE! It's just like the shampoo and even though I had some problems with ricing I am definitely purchasing more and willing to work with this fragrance.
