I don't recommend nibbling the soap. You might fart bubbles Wink

Hehe, Nymeria to the rescue again! And I didn't have to research lol!

Neonpirate~what kind of colorants do you use? I love the softness of the pink and greens. I think I have a heavy hand with pigments  Sad

I don't know if I "should" be mixing, but for the green i used the liquid neon green coloring (stable) and hydrated chromium green oxide? I believe that is what it's called. It's NOT regular chromium green oxide. The pink is JUST neon pink liquid coloring (stable). I bought the sample of all the neons from tbk trader i believe it is.

Most of my colors are oxides or the liquid neons.

That rocks though, I'm the same way when something really strikes me!

Pretty pretty! But I thought that castile meant 100% olive oil??

Really?! I see so many castile recipes that call for a few % other oils all the time. Someone told me it was anything with more than 60% olive.

Wow!! Those look great!!!

I've always wanted to try that!! Was it pretty easy? Did you use lye?

There batches are probably in the 20th ones i've made. I do use lye, i make it the very old fashioned way!

I got my guava from sweetcakes, also!

Thank you so much! I've been out of oils for WEEKS and just about killing my boyfriend.
I have realized that soap making is the one thing i can take everything out on, and put myself into. I love it! Each bar really is made with whatever emotion i need to release at the time!

Here are my newest Cold Process soaps. There are all castile, (65% olive, 34% coconut 1% grapeseed) i use a tiny dash of grapeseed oil for the vitamin E


This one is guava with cranberry seeds


Coconut lime with no coloring


Watermelon bubble gum with cranberry seeds. my favorite, by far.


Lime essencial oil with only the green coloring.

I agree with mare mare..
It's best to start with a really really simple 2 or 3 oil recipe, nothing fancy, without the coloring and fragrance. Often times the first couple of batches aren't the best because it's really something you need to do to learn.

I spent tons of time looking up stuff about it until i was positive that i knew everything to know..
But i've been making soap for a bit and I'm still a little nervous to try whipped soap!

That doesn't mean you wouldn't be able to do it by any means. It's just highly recommended that you try a few test batches first. Smiley

It reminds me a lot of a fresh picked herb garden with a lot of mint in the mix. I don't remember exactly what is in the blend, i'll have to pick it up.

I TOTALLY know what you're talking about on the kelp! I only added it to a small portion to get the swirly coloring, and i do notice a tiny tiny tiny bit of "ocean" but it's so small in comparison to the fresh greeny mint scent that it doesn't really do much.. sort of just a muted little hint?

I used it in my hair, too, and it felt great.. haha.

Thanks! It's one of my favorites so far! Smells nice and minty.
