New Soap: Mintal Case

If you haven't guessed it by now I am a mintal, not mental, case, and green is my favorite color-all shades of it. Even my birthstone is green (peridot), and my theory was right: I added the mica before I began mixing the oils and lye, and it worked! The color blended smoothly, and I did not get a super-thick trace. Of course I scented the green half in Garden Mint and the other half in Bourbon de Vanille. I didn't even bother coloring the vanilla half because it's gonna turn brown anyway (vanilla browns for ya'll who didn't know that).

The mint portion of this soap is very strong. I can barely smell the vanilla so I look forward to seeing how this soap plays out.

Ingredients: soybean oil, rice bran oil, coconut oil, castor oil, avocado oil, and cocoa butter. My apartment was so friggin hot that my coconut oil liquified and dripped all over my counter!

But I love mint, and the one on the second pic in the front has a little heart on it lol

That is so cute how the vanilla portion of the soap on the bottom right looks like a heart. :)
