I've been on a role now that i have a nice big kitchen to work in, as opposed to my tiny old trailer's "kitchen".

This is my "Spicy Pear & Almond" Soap, green with black swirls.
I has olive oil, coconut oil, and mango butter.

A friend was over and this is her blend of scents. Turkish Mocha, Pumpkin Spice, and Almond. It smells like the most delicious "seasonal" flavor they sell around thanksgiving at coffee places.

This one was suggested by my sister, who looooves lush. She wanted something that smelled like the seasonal scent "Snowcap", so i tried to imitate it. I've never smelled it, though, and all i had to go off was that it's Almonds, Cream, and there is cocoa butter in the mix as well. I added ginseng and seaweed extract, and made this a shampoo bar. I haven't yet tried it on my hair.

They all look yummy! I's love to bathe with any of them.
I have yet to try my hand at soap, I want to try and rebatch first as we always have tiny peices of soap left over from our bars.
They completely get wasted, eaten by the drain, or tossed away.

I wish I had smell-a-computer to smell your soaps.  Grin

Those look great, and it sounds like they smell divine.

nudge, nudge... (I second this!)

They all look wonderful and the scents sound divine! Smiley And the world needs more shampoo bars, darnit, so I especially like that one!
