I Made More Soap!


I am so ass-backwards sometimes. I'll either have lye and no oils or oils and no lye. I'm literally scraping the bottom of the barrel, and I was able to eek out enough just to make this batch I call Love Hangover because that song from Diana Ross just popped into my head when I was trying to think of a name for it. It's bursting with the arousing aromas of grapefruit, tangerines, and lime. This bar is the perfect pick-me-up. I can't wait til it's cured and ready to use. I also cut the bars a lot bigger this time. These weigh a hefty 5+ oz. and I added cocoa butter because I'm in love with it. I think I'll make cocoa butter a regular ingredient in my recipes. It helps make my bars nice and hard, and I love how it moisturizes dry, ashy skin-like mine.


Tomorrow is my first Art Fire Artisan Spotlight. Ya'll come back now, ya hear?

I wish I could make soap or candles...just anything. Some of us get all the talent.

Love your blog! Jealous of your soap!

Hugs and Mocha,
