I admire many soap makers across the world wide web. One of my favorite hands down is Patti Flynn. Her soaps make me just want to pack up, sell all my possessions, and board a plane to Australia , move in with her, and pick her brain of all her soap making prowess. I love how Patti incorporates color, texture, and additives into her soaps. They’re truly functional works of art, and look how monstrous these bars are!

I need to stop being so
cheap frugal with my soap making efforts. It’s partly because I don’t have the space to house a lot of finished product, but it’s also because oils are so expensive. I’m a fledgling businessperson, and I have to budget accordingly. With that being said, my bars are wimpy in comparison, but still delightful nonetheless!
I almost called this soap “The Patti Flynn” but I decided to go with Sophisticated Lady instead. It’s a blend of English tea rose and lavender essential oil. I sprinkled the top with dried rose petals and lavender buds. I would have preferred that the layers were more even (half and half) in color, but I can live with it. I’m going to try to make my next batch of soap more monstrous in size. I have a little project I worked on over this past weekend. I shall reveal in my next blog post...
