This is only my third ever batch of cold process soap and again I am really happy with how it has come out. I It smells gorgeous and lathers up into nice thick creamy bubbles. The basil. sage and mint was coloured with spirinula powder and was layered in a rectangular dish.

The lavender chunks were hand shaped from the remaining soap, coloured with a little purple mica powder and mixed with dried lavender.

I love making soap Smiley

I can almost smell these lol.  Pretty as well as inspiring.

These sound incredibly aromatic!

I like the stamps, too, did you make the stamps or buy them like that?

Good job on both of them!!

Love the stamps!!  Don't tell me you hand stamped every letter in every soap??  I would love to do something like that (NOT each letter!!) with my soaps

Those soaps look pretty. I like how you stamped the name in the basil ones.
