recently got a bug to make some nifty soap, so I went by AC moore today and got some M&P supplies.  I got the goats milk soap base from "Life of the Party", a few colors, scents, and small molds.  I put orange dye, and orange scent oil into the base expecting to get something smelling like orange peel, but instead, it smells like creamsicle! I guess coz of the milk... the similarity is further enhanced by the dye coming out much lighter than I expected

this soap thing is fun! Cheesy  it's not quite as moisturizing as I'd hoped (coz of the brand?) so I might find some cocoa butter or something similar to add.

thank you Luna! Smiley  the flower mold was from the same brand as the soap stuff, but intended for bath fizzies.  the tiny hearts are from a candy mold.  I might try making some custom molds later on... I love doing wierd stuff like that. 
you have awesome soaps!

Those are really pretty!
I made some cramsicle soaps about a year ago. I first made a batch of white soap and scented in with vanilla (Half the mold). Once that hardened I made a batch of orange coloured and scented soap and poured it over it. I gave them as Christmas presents and people were quite pleased.

I recommend, if possible, ordering some m&p soap online...  a good site to try  fromnaturewithlove.com. The brand you bought has left me, as well as many others I'm sure, VERY dissapointed in the past!!!
