lauredhel: soap with a goddess figure on it (soaplily)
[personal profile] lauredhel
I made soap! Borrowed a few drawers of spoons, had some assistance, and got it done. I seem to have streamlined/ME-friendlied my method somehow, because it worked so much better this time. Maybe I just didn't stuff anything up this time!

Anyhow, here it is raw and untrimmed and just out of the mould:

From the top:

Pink and purple neon swirl: Brambleberry "Love Spell" fragrance oil - I'm going to change this name, but I'm still working out what to call it.

Fragrance description: "It has fruity sweet notes of Italian Bergamot, White Lady Peach and Strawberry mixed with middle notes of Apple Blossom, African Tamarind and a touch of Damask Rose. The base is Tonka Bean, Coconut Milk and White Musk."

White and blueish swirl (swirl will discolour to bluish-brownish over time): Black Amber & Lavender, again by BB.

Fragrance description: "Deep and sophisticated this fragrance blends rustic Amber with bold Parisian Lavender. Combined with these main scents is a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk. We've rounded out the fragrance with a surprising addition of raw Clary Sage resulting in an earthy concoction with hints of sweetness and pleasing floral notes."

I love this fragrance, which is mostly a lavender-vanilla to my nose, soooo much.

Brown with white swirl: Sweetcakes Sandalwood fragrance. A pretty straight sandalwood, to me.

Fragrance description: "An excellent imitation of the very expensive real thing. A touch of real Indonesian sandalwood is accented by essential oils of cedarwood, patchouli, and amyris, supported by synthetic sandalwood aroma materials."

Uncoloured soap: Brambleberry Stargazer Lily. Straight up lily.

Am now planning a big batch of uncoloured castile (some with goat's milk, some not), an oatmeal-stout soap, a rose & rose geranium, and to try out new fragrance oils Honey Ale, Ancient Sedonia, and Amber.

Have you been soaping lately? Planning any batches? Found any good soapsmut photos to share?
