Yesterday morning I made 3 new batches of coconut milk soap. Coconut Milk is quite thick and adds a really nice creaminess to the soap.
I've made this soap so many times in the past that I can pretty much make it in my sleep...or so I thought. These bars are normally Teal to represent the blue/green water in Bermuda with a white textured layer on top to represent the waves.
I didn't add enough green to the color blend and apparently didn't wait long enough for the base to firm before trying to add the white layer. It sank.
Despite the accidental change to the look, this is still, hands down, my favorite scent of all the soap that I've ever made.
This is a version of Japanese Cherry Blossom. Feminine and floral with just the right amount of sweetness.
I ran out of brown oxide quite a while ago and never purchased more. I've creating brown using cocoa powder and a pinch of black oxide or activated charcoal. Works like a charm.
Finally, I have another fragrance/essential oil blend.
A deep and sensual fragrance with sweet and floral like notes of Ylang- Ylang, supported with the earthiness of Sandalwood finishing with the intoxicating, bourbon-y richness of Black Vanilla.
