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!

Cut Soap, Soap, Wet Soap

Coastal

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.

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!

Clover and Aloe

This light scent is a blend of fresh greens and bright citrus. It has notes of bergamot, lemon, mint, green tea, rose, lily, amber, moss, and violet.   It comes across as refreshing and green, and is not floral or fruity at all.  It is neither feminine nor masculine.

Finished Soap

Chocolate Amber

This soap smells like a candy factory!  In addition to the chocolate and amber scent, it also has notes of lavender and tangerine.  It’s very sweet and delicious smelling.  Due to the fragrance oil, it discolors to a dark brown, despite my best efforts, although there is a little decorative color on the top that will wash off with first use.
