|My husbands daughters with my Ellie and Trey|
I also made two new soaps which I am thrilled with!
Introducing my new Pink Sparkle! It was a lengthy process of a color graduation where each layer was slightly darker than the top...I got a little carried away with the top color but I still think it turned out very well! The fragrance is Fresh Snow...smells quite yummy!
I really enjoyed the process of making this soap...you had time between layers because you needed a thick trace. The fragrance worked really well with the soap and using a spatula for each layer helped with not breaking through all the way...of course being handmade soap there are a few imperfections but I am quite pleased with it!
The next soap was a favorite and one that I will make today because its such a very small batch when you make it...it is time consuming but I was able to make some Tea Tree Shampoo bars during the "wait process" which didn't make it FEEL as long AT all!
Chai Latte Love Soap....I absolutely adore all of its cuteness! I used a Chai Tea Cybilla fragrance which smells absolutely DIVINE!
This is a two step process where you make the soap twice. It involves cooling the second lye mixture in the fridge when you make the tops of the Chai Tea....I am going to make them again today because they are so adorable and I really think they will be a hit! It will be better to have eight "drinks" to have for people rather than just four.
The recipe includes the following ingredients: Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter, Castor Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, and I did use some Titanium Dioxide to make the tops whiter. I did not put the fragrance in the tops because they will discolor...other than that...came out ADORABLE....I sprinkled cinnamon on tops of "cream" I did have to use the stick blender for the tops for awhile to make them as "fluffy" as I could!
Have a GREAT smelling DAY!
