Cut Soap, Soap

Irish Coffee

I didn’t add any color to this loaf of soap, because I wanted to see what the fragrance oil might do to it.  I thought it might darken some, but I wasn’t really expecting it to darken that much! 

I cut the loaf into bars first, then a few days later, trimmed the edges of the bars.  You can see how in just a few days it went from the beige on the inside to completely dark by the time I trimmed the corners. 

Sometimes, no matter what you do, the fragrance oil will darken soap, despite having been colored.  I’ve had that happen too.  Once, I colored with black to try to combat that process, and it still turned brown! 

Kind of amazing how fast, and strong, that process is!

Ever since I started making soap, my husband has refused to use the store-bought stuff.  This makes my soaper’s heart very happy.  He’s very particular, so I consider it a job well done if he’s happy with what I’ve made him.  He likes certain kinds of scents and hates others.  He likes some colors and detests others.   Some oils he’s good with, others he is not.  As I said, particular!  lol

While the fragrance of this one is a duplicate of a name brand, its contents are not.  This is full of skin-loving oils and no harsh, drying detergents.

Cut Soap

DownUnder Dreaming, the cut

It’s a rough cut, to be sure, (meaning no “staging”) but I wanted you to see the inside, “where the land and sea meet the sky.”  The scent is described as, “a fresh mix of eucalyptus, bergamot, citrus, tea tree, mint, geranium, musk, amber, sandalwood, and moss.”  This would be a great refreshing eye-opener in the morning shower.  🙂

Circus Splash, the cut

I am so pleased with how this turned out!  I hope my friend likes it!  My daughter suggested I may have to make some of this for myself as it matches our bathroom, lol.  I hadn’t noticed that when I was making it. 

On to the next batch!

Elemental Soap

Sometimes, you just have to go with the inspiration. 

I was watching a video that Clyde from Vibrant Soap was doing on the elements.  I’ve always loved things that express the elements and seasons.  Seeing it done in soap was so cool to me.  My head starting spinning with all kinds of ideas of how I might be able to make my own version of the elements in soapy form, and this is what came out. 

The “elements” are a combination of clear and coconut oil glycerin soap, embedded in a base of coconut oil cold process soap.  Colored with activated charcoal and black oxide; scented with Midnight Therapy fragrance oil. 

What’s not to love about the elements?  🙂

If you are interested in purchasing Elemental, or any of my other soaps, please email me at

Thank you!
