This batch has so much going on! First of all, I used ShiehDesignStudio
's idea to add coconut milk to the batch. I followed her directions, and added half the amount of water to the lye and then added the coconut milk to the oils later (to equal the amount of liquid that I needed). I also boiled down a bottle of merlot to add as a colorant. It's a nasty green color when you first do it, but it turns this lovely chocolate color later! I ground oatmeal to add between the layers, and added it as a scrubby to the bars that aren't layered. The scent is a mix of Brambleberry's Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey and Brambleberry's Almond FO. It smells really nice and mild! Ok, pics:
I used four molds: a pringles can, a loaf mold, a tupperware container, and a half and half container.. Pictured is the tupperware container, the half n half container, and the loaf mold.
I'm going to a wine party tonight, so I'm bringing bars as my party favor.. do you get the joke?
Finally, check out this fugly bar!
The top of the pringles can expanded a little bit.. they look terrible but actually I've grown to love these bars the most for personal use (yeah, you can't sell that haha). The knob on top makes it really easy to grab in the shower!
Woooo, I'm off to the wine swap, hopefully my wine soap with scrub away the evil tomorrow
