Hey there, Craftsterland!

I've been so super busy that I haven't had time to make much soap in the last few weeks. I finally sat down and made some this weekend. I use the hot-process method in my crock pot.

First up, I have Lavish Lemon Poppy Seed. I used coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil. Essential oil is mostly lemon, with a smidge of rosemary and tea tree thrown in for variety. I'm loving the way the poppy seeds exfoliate! They are perfect- just enough sloughing without hurting or making anything raw.

Next up, I have Walk In The Woods. It's got ground sage for color (as well as oily skin problems!) and pine, cedar, and rosemary essential oils. It reminds me of roaming the woods as a kid with my Papaw. I used olive, coconut, and sweet almond oils.

Finally, I've got Summertime Citrus Mint. Olive and coconut oils combined with unrefined shea butter and non-deodorized cocoa butter make it super moisturizing. It was also the first time I super-fatted anything. I used a pinch of ground ginger, and grapefruit, lemon, and peppermint essential oils. I think this one may be my favorite of the three.

I would love to hear your thoughts! What do you guys think?
