I had purchased some soap making supplies a long time ago.. and never got around to making any. Of course. I had the afternoon off from work today so I figured I'd play with it and see what I could come up with...

I made a total of 6 soaps, all with what was SUPPOSED to be an orange vanilla scent... they don't really smell like anything other than.. well soap... lol

I'll have to try something different next time.... like adding more drops of the fragrances...


Since I've never made these before, I was wondering if I added cocoa powder or cinnamon/nutmeg/other spices or teas or something, is that ok? Would the soaps still be usable, and would they smell better? (i.e. stronger frangrance that's not soapy smelling! lol)

It could also be the quality of the fragrance you're using.  I've heard bad things about the stuff you find in craft stores.  I love the fragrance oils from Brambleberry.

Or, try the essential oils at the health food stores.  They're a little pricey, but they smell good.

Rated PG-13 for language and mild peril.

I made some yesterday with ground cinnamon and allspice in them and they smell DIVINE.

I love your shape and color choices!

My first soaps are currently cooling in their molds, but mine are just plain round bars (green apple colored and scented).

I <3 Personal Swaps and can crochet pretty much anything! PM me!
