Yuzu Crazy

This soap holds a special place in my heart for many reasons. One, it reminds me of my very first successful batch of soap-Grapefruit Lily. I loved that soap. If I could describe what happiness smelled like, that would be it, but I can't remember where I got it from. 
 (Grapefruit Lily)
Two, it’s scented in one of my favorite spring/summer scents: cranberry yuzu. This soap is called Yuzu Crazy because I am crazy about this scent. Yuzu is often called the Japanese grapefruit, but it’s origins are actually from China . It’s very tart and aromatic, and the actual fruit looks like a hybrid of a lemon, a lime, and a small grapefruit. It looks rotten in this pic, doesn’t it?

I think this is my 3rd batch using this scent. While the scent to me is overwhelmingly yuzu with a touch of cranberry, I decided to make the color more cranberry-ish. The bottom looks almost translucent, and I sprinkled the top with raspberry seeds-just because! Yuzu Crazy is part of my official Limited Edition line. There are 5 in all. You’ve met Onion Bagel earlier, and next week I’ll introduce you to Edward Cullen (Yes, I’ve been bitten by the Twilight saga) and Miss Priss. Stay tuned….
