Cherry ba da Bing! Soap
Southern Soapers is closing and I managed to nab a few ounces of their fragrances in time. I’ve never used any of their products before but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I used their Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Serendipity along with Brambleberry's Vanilla Select for the scent.
I also used Brambleberry's Red Velvet Labcolor for the pink portion. It was supposed to be red. That's my fault though, because I didn't read the instructions first and had to wing it. I diluted a few drops with a few drops of distilled water and then added that directly to the soap. I know that I missed a lot of important steps but I was already making the soap when I discovered that there is more involved to this coloring process than I initially thought.
Hopefully the color sticks and doesn't fade out or, worse, morph as it cures.
