I tried 4 different versions of Pomegranate Soap. Unfortunately, the scents were all duds. I have been very frustrated with my EO blending recently. I have decided that I don’t like Frankinsence or Palmarosa in soap. I have tried blending them in many different ways but I just don’t like either of them. In the last few months, I have only come up with 2 new scents that I have really liked. Oh well… it is all part of the fun! The colours were very interesting. They all have fresh pomegranate juice that I made from local pomegranates. They also all have some pomegranate seed oil in them.
The first photo shows them in order – Soap 1 (from left to right) has half water, half pomegranate juice. Soap 2 has all pomegranate juice, no water. Soap 3 has all pomegranate juice and madder root, as a colour experiment, and in an attempt to preserve the little pomegranate seed oil I had left, it is superfatted with both pomegranate seed oil and rose hip oil. Soap 4 is similar to soap 3 but without the madder root.
The soap is wonderful (except for the scent). SO smooth and rich and my skin feels wonderful afterward. This is definitely a repeat, but I need to come up with a great scent for it…
Also, I may not be able to continue experimenting with this one this year… as the pomegranate season ended suddenly. Right when the local pomegranates were at their ripest, there was a torrential rain storm which made most of the pomegranates crack, open up and fall to the ground.
hope you are all well and enjoying the holiday season
