|Bye, bye salt!! :(|
In the meantime, I have been working of a couple other soaps. I just got some neon colorants from Bramble Berry, and I couldn't wait to experiment! For the first soap, I decided to go all out and use almost all of them. It was just too hard to resist. This was a really fun one. I am thinking of a good name for it. It has to be something fun.

I also made a new gardenia soap. I wanted it to have a bit of interest (I like to do something other than just white), so I held back some soap (I knew this FO was an accelerator) to do a cool design on top. This was coconut milk soap, I added a little TD to the white so it would be really white, and for some reason it was a little crumbly when I tried to cut it. I think it might be the TD that caused this, but I'm not sure. I left part of it to cut later. Maybe a little more time to set up (fingers crossed)? It is still fine, just a little rustic on the bottom. Oh well (sigh)...
I am listing these two soaps this week. Rose Petal and Meyer Lemon. Meyer Lemon has been popular already and I have sold quite a bit already. I do have to say that this is the best lemon scent I have ever smelled in a bath product. It is sweet, yet still lemony, without any of that Pledge scent that I like to stay away from. The Rose Petal is such a delicate, fresh rose. It really is very lovely. I had fun photographing these soaps this week, and I have been having a bit of fun editing my pictures as well.
