If you read my Lye in my Eye post on the discussion board, you will learn that I tried my first CP soap...I am an HP girl. In this process I had a near injury with a lye drop near my tear duct. I am happy to say that my eye feels much better now! Thank heaven!

So what did I endanger my body for?

My first CP swirled soap....Minty Tingle. (It looks like blue cheese somehow!) The liquid colorant didn't stay so I used spirulina powder to darken my swirl. Peppermint EO.


And much safer experience-my first lotion! Very very rich. I made it with water, emulsifying wax, and almond/grapeseed oils. I had a blast with this. Scented with almond-coconut FO. LOVE this one! It seems slightly discolored since I used an old emptied lotion bottle. Don't think I will ever buy lotion again.

Looks so soft and creamy. I love spirulina, so even more so do I want that CP soap. Glad your ok, don't want anyone to lose an eye for soap.

The lotion was dead easy:

melt emulsifying wax with oil in microwave for less than a minute. Add boiling water and stir. Let cool and done!

1/4c. oil
1/4c. emulsifying wax
1 1/4 c. water
essential oils
