It's Been A While, But More Soap!


I don't think I've ever gone this long between posts! The past week has been a really long one. I went out of town for a few days, my sister came down from Harlem for the weekend, and I saw my cousin who just turned 18. I even got my hair done-sorta...





With all that fun, I did manage to squeeze in a few batches of soap. First up is a batch scented in blackberry and sage. I call it Bad-Ass Cousin. Why? Because this scent could be the cousin to Black Raspberry and Vanilla only it has a spicy kick (the sage) to it. We all have a cousin (or other relative) who is just a little to the left when everyone else is to the right. They're such bad-asses! I'm also really loving anything blackberry right now. I under-measured my oils (I don't know where my freaking mind was) so these bars look "squat" to me. I compensated for it by cutting them thicker than normal. I made these soaps with added shea butter, and I left them in the mold for a full 72 hours before un-molding and slicing. Usually I'm so gung-ho about revealing my newest creations, but lately I've been like "Ehh...whatever, It'll be there tomorrow...." I think the summer heat is getting to me...
