I've been on a soap making rampage. Unfortunately, I haven't pictures of all the different types of soaps I've made, but I have been playing with a lightbox and different lighting to showcase some of my soaps! Heres a few I've got to show!


Lemon Sugar and Sweetgrass
This is actually my favourite scent. I have one bar left (out of 14) and I'm dying to make another batch!! This one everyone snatches up as fast as I can make it!
This one is very bubbly and perfectly moisturizing, not drying at all! Divine.


Pink Grapefruit
I'm a huuuuuuuge citrus fan. This smells _exactly_ like a fresh ripe grapefruit. You can even smell hints of the rind! Anchored with patchouli. It's amazing, but I realize only a handful of people are keen to the idea of the smell of grapefruit. I love it!!
This is more moisturizing than my normal recipe. It's very nice with small creamy bubbles.


Dolce and Gabanna's Light Blue
Peppermint + Vanilla (no artificial colour added! Yum! This scent is SO refreshing)
Lemon Sugar and Sweetgrass

I love soaps.  Those all look amazing, particularly the lemon sugar and sweetgrass.  Yummmmmo.

I love grapefruit too, by the way!  I have a friend who hates it, and one time I was talking to him online while I was drinking some grapefruit juice.  I said to him, "grapefruit is delicious."  He replied, "who told you that?"  Cheesy  People just don't know what's up!  Grapefruit rocks.

And I bet they all smell delicious.

Grapefruit is one of my favorite scents ever  - soooo refreshing, and just a bit different from those almost overly bright and gaudy citrus-y scents.
And with patchouli, that must be amazing. I'm sort of drooling over here, don't look!

These all look amazing. =)

SunflowerSmiles: Give it a try!! It's not as scary as you think, and you'll never know until you give it a go! You can always ask if you have any questions!

smittenheart: For these soaps pictured here I used the CPHP method (crock pot hot process). It's one of my favorite methods. You know, the whole instant gratification thing. You know what else? I really like the rustic look the process makes too. It's really a personal preference thing. Smiley
