Soap experiments


2 interesting batches of soap - the green one is the seaweed soap - I scented it with rosemary, but you can smell the seaweed more than the rosemary. Can't decide if I like it or not. It's a nice soap to use, though. The green colour is from a little green wax crayon.


Second one - see the whale! - is coloured yellow from palm oil. I scented this one with Lavendar and Patchouli, and then added some cinnamon for the brown colour. It's intended to be a shaving soap, so I also added Kaolin to help with a close shave.

What do you think? Would you try either one? I'll be giving away some samples at Belvedere in April.

My soapmaking course is almost full - only one space left!
