Soaping With "A-Plum"

Really I'm not. I had a vision for how I wanted this soap to look, and this aint it. I wanted this soap to be a very dark berry, but duh, I didn't add any black oxide to my violet and red oxides, so I ended up with this. It's not bad, but not what I envisioned. The scent is a blend of plum and apricot, and I made it with rice bran, coconut, and palm oils with cocoa butter. I really need to order some soaping oils. I want to give my soaps some more "oomph." I haven't come up with a name yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something clever shortly. Meanwhile, I found some other cool soaps made with a plum fragrance courtesy of Art Fire.

It's more like a mauve like Plum Mauve-lous Soap
