THIS time. Wink  I wanted to try my hand at adding things to MP soap base, and made a few bars of salt & pepper soap:



I added a hint of lime green coloring with a margarita lime scent.  I used a little bit of sea salt and a little bit of ground peppercorns.

A few bars of poppyseed soap:



I added yellow coloring, poppyseeds and a lemon cake scent.  They both smell DELICIOUS!  Thanks for looking. Cheesy

Looks interesting . . . but might the peppercorns might not be a little irritating to the skin?  I just think, as a spice that is actually "spicy" it might possibly have that affect on sensitive skin?  Maybe not, though . . .

fun! Yeah please report back on the peppercorns! I love black pepper eo, so it might just be one of those things you have to go easy on, like cinnamon and clove.

I made skinny sample sizes and tried them out, both popyseeds and the pepper are fine. Cheesy
