Ah, the moody floral fragrance strikes again!! I'm so glad you girls had some fun and I love that you recognize the value in sharing your craft. #soapfails are the best teachers of all! We all have them!! I do hope you'll get together and try again!
Thanks so much Amy! Yes - I definitely knew better than to use this fragrance but it smells so darn good I couldn't resist. I think I found that the castor oil may have been part of the culprit as well, since that seems to be a common factor in many of my recent #soapfails! Lauren and I most definitely will try again. :) Thank you for hosting this awesome challenge so I can keep pushing myself to learn more and more about the art of soaping!
I love the sweet pea fragrance, it's one of my favourites.
Thank you! Yes, it smells amazing!! I will have to try to use it again in a slower moving oil...perhaps a castille soap with olive oil?
Beautiful soap, despite the challenges! I am sure the fragrance more than makes up for the disappointment in it seizing up. I hope she gets a chance to try soap making again!
Hi Debi, Thank you so much for your kinds words! I do love the colors - the soap design leaves much to be desired however! haha. But we sure did have tons of fun making it. And yes, I can't stop smelling it every time I walk by the curing rack. I will definitely invite Lauren over again to soap with me... I owe her a re-do!
The seizing up has happened to me quite a few times, even with EOs (e.g. cinnamon EO, I did not read up properly on that one, I guess...:)) But you ladies finished it very well, with great smiles to prove it! Well done!
Awww...thank you so much for your kind words! I think I had a double whammy between the castor oil and the fragrance. It was doomed from the start I suppose. :) But Lauren and I definitely had a blast!
I am Berky. I am obsessed with making soap - and talking about the experience - with a dash of humor. See my website at www.berkysbubbles.com
