You bought dirt FO? I don't even know what that means but I like it!

When I first got into soaping, I became obsessed with the fact that one of the suppliers offered a dirt fragrance oil, and somehow justified buying it.  It legitimately smells like dirt--uncorking the bottle is like opening a fresh bag of potting soil.  "Wow!" I exclaimed, all starry-eyed and soap-obsessed.  The obvious problem is that nobody (sane) wants soap that smells like dirt.  But... it's cool... and now I have an excuse to finally use it!  Grin

Raving!  Love your soaps!  The making soap with wine in on my list of things to do.  I just did a batch of beer soap yesterday.  Gotta see how that turns out before I try the next weird combo!

I LOVE the Dirt FO!  I got some too!  I bought because I thought it was hilarious. It really does smell like freshly turned soil.   Then I made up some soap with it.  Some people either really love it or are totally grossed out about it.  One person told me that it smelled like "grandma's basement" and that wasn't meant in a nice way!   Undecided Another person originally wanted Rose scented soap but when she smelled the Dirt scented she immediately switched.    Wink

I also made the dirt soap because they say it's good for deer hunters. They use that to shower with rather than using something that the deer can detect.  IDK.  Hunting season just started for my DH so it hasn't been tested yet. So we'll see.

Might be a good mid-winter soap for gardeners.  Especially when the gardening catalogs start arriving in January!  We live in MN for cripes sakes...it's months before anyone can think about getting in the garden!   Cheesy  The Dirt scented soap would be a great teaser.

Side note for Raving:  I just made some candles from "Santa's Pipe" FO from Sweetcakes!  Yum...sorta reminds of the "Crackling Firewood" sniffie you sent me!

The Frankincense soap is so cute! I really like the design and the two greens. I also like the idea of the Wine Cellar soap, but I'm not a huge fan of *musky* scents. Too cute that you made the Twilight soap sparkly! Haha. Smiley

Thanks, lady!  I didn't have any trouble with it, but I know another member did... I followed mullerslane's advice and boiled the wine before freezing it to get the alcohol out.  I don't know what effect it really had (as this was my first wine soap), but it certainly didn't hurt!

Brilliant!  I love it.  Does it smell in CP just like it does in the bottle, or did you blend it?  I'm still a little sketched out by straight-out dirt soap, but I might mix it with a grass FO....

Nah, just used the Dirt FO straight out of the bottle into CP. Smells just like it did in the bottle...to my nose, anyway.    Undecided

I did add some finely ground up coffee grounds in the mix for exfoliating purposes.  Mind you, they were FINELY ground. I sort wished I would've used some brown-ish coloring too.  Just for the look of mud. But didn't. Maybe next time.  Smiley

Yeah, for the wine soaping I plan on boiling it down and freezing it before adding it.  I did that with the beer too.  The beer soap is curing right now so I haven't tried it yet.  Wink  Can't wait!
