I'm shaking from the withdrawal. I haven't made any soap in about three weeks? That last batch discouraged me greatly so I backed off (and I'm running low on soaping oils.) I did make a small batch yesterday that I call Summer's End. I wanted to give it a rainbow effect, but it didn't quite pan out that way. I used olive oil, coconut oil, and castor oil. While I'm not pleased with the aesthetics of it, I do like the way it smells. The FO I used is from Day Star Supplies, and it is a blend of pineapple, orange, guava, papaya, with a hint of vanilla and coconut. They claim there's no discoloration, so I'll be watching this one closely. Here's a pic, but again, I'm not thrilled with the "look" of it.
