Its a temporary name, until I can think of something more artistic or dare I say it , sculptural ?
Anyway, its soap. You probably thought I'd given up my saponifaction habit since I've been yakking about non-sudsing topics so much of late, but taint true. I've just slowed a little due to all the other details of my life. But I must get cracking again as our farm store customers are buying up my soap faster and faster each week. Yesterday one fabulous chick bought SEVEN bars ! (Thank you DN. Thank you very much!)
I have this feeling that one day Keith will die and I will find 3000 bars of my soap hidden away in the barn after he bought it all back from the people he PAID to buy it from me. He's nice that way.
|I love how natural powders, clays, roots, herbs, flowers never come out the same no matter|
how many times you color with them. Or perhaps it has more to do with my "technique."
This here soap bar was great fun. Created with palm, coconut, olive, canola oils and mango butter the lighter orange/yellow color comes from Annato seed powder. Another wild experiment in the all natural coloring arena as well as the embed improvisations. I started pouring this soap AND THEN decided to cut up a hot process bar that smelled great (Cassia essential oil) but was so dull looking after being colored with Clove powder. Shoving two long bars of the HP soap into the cold process soap and then pouring more CP in the mold and I got this Kit Kat bar thingy.
Or maybe you are thinking piano keys...as they would look through the eyes of the totally inebriated. Either way I scented the CP with clove and blood orange essential oils and when mixed with the cassia of the HP embeds, the bar smells good enough to serve for dessert. Which is exactly what happened in my sons house.
I gave him a bar of this for his 30th birthday, just what every 30 year old man wants for that special day and his little dog Abby became interested jumping up on my sons leg. So he lowered the soap bar down for her to smell and she of course BIT into the bar. So much for not testing my products on animals. Her face afterwards was pretty funny. Of course she suffered no ill effects as the bar was free of all chemicals and dyes. Funny dang dog..
