Adventures in Soaping

Of the many things I made this weekend, I did get a chance to whip up two batches of palm-free soap (hooray!).  I named them “Terra Cotta” and “Eskimo Kisses”.

Alas, I didn’t have the greatest of success, but they may still cure out to be wonderful — only time will tell!

Five Outta Six Ain’t Bad

Have you ever had one of those weekends when everything you did just turned out 100% perfect, or even better than you imagined?   Well, I didn’t have one of those, but it was almost that!   I only had one thing that didn’t turn out to my liking.  All the rest of them met or exceeded my expectations!

I did a lot of things this weekend; three batches of soap, two lotions and bath bombs.   I was quite busy, but now that it’s over, and I put all my stuff away, I feel like I got some good recreation time in.

So let’s start out with what didn’t turn out like I expected and go from there (we’ll get that one out-of-the-way).  🙂 Continue reading “Five Outta Six Ain’t Bad”

I posted over the weekend about three soaps I had made – Patchouli & Spearmint, Ginger, Carrot & Orange, and Dragon’s Fire.    Today they were finally ready to un-mold (sort of) and I got a chance to cut them and get a few pictures.

Trying new things– part 1 — clay soaps

For the longest time I have wanted to make some clay soaps, but I just never found the time.    I have had some various clays sitting around for months, just begging to be used.   Well, this past weekend, I did it!      I tried a new thing or two!

My goal was to make a couple of facial soaps.  One for dry, sensitive skin and one for oily, blemish prone skin.   Good thing I had a couple of perfect clays for that.  And they turned out beautiful!
