I thought it would be neat to use lemon rind spirals or something like that, but I am not so sure now. Thanks for the reply  Smiley

Hmm that would be really pretty! Maybe just try a small batch and see? If you were using slightly dry lemon rind that might be better (at least if you're worried about the mold thing) but it wouldn't be a soft spiral like fresh...

For HP, add the mushed avocados, juiced carrots (or cook & mush) in with your oils so they go through the saponification.  If you add them at the end of the cook you will risk them going bad.

I tried carrots and didn't watch it well...it bubbled over and I lost the batch Sad...I've seen someone who added the carrots to the oils before adding the lye..also she did cp soap so I may try it that way.

I find this thread very interesting. I have never made any kind of bath product, but am wanting to make some simple bath bombs and bath salts for mother's day. I'm also confused on the whole fresh food thing. I've seen many recipes calling for fresh foods like avocado. I'm wondering, can fruit pastes/candy be used? I have boxes filled with coconut-pinnaple candy and tropical fruit pastes such as orange, mango, guava and pineapple, all just sitting in my pantry. My mother loves tropical scents and was wondering wether the pastes could be used in bath products or the candy. How long would they last? Would they cause infections due to the sugar content? Help! xD

I've used fresh carrot juice in CP soap successfully. I replaced the water with the juice. The lye makes it smell horrible at first, but 24 hours later it smells divine! And it's held up perfectly.

Here's an article that gives some information on the topic: http://www.everythingsheacreates.com/2011/08/melt-pour-soap-basics.html
As I work mainly with melt and pour soap, the answer is that fresh milk, fruits, vegetables, etc., should NOT be added.
Hope this helps!
All the best,
Lisa
