I have been invited to participate in an international Friendship soap swap! There are 9 participants each one of us has to make a soap for someone and someone else makes a soap for us!
I got to make soap for Amy from Great Cakes Soapworks!! I actually videoed the whole process from making, to cutting and stamping… but I can’t seem to be able to upload it to YouTube!! When I get that figured out, I will post…
All Amy requested was something natural from my area and she likes citrusy scents…
So…… I decided to make her a salt soap, try to colour it orange (as you can see, it turned out a muddy yellow…) and use bits of soap from my prickly pear soap, my pomegranate soap, my lavender soap and my rose hip soap.
I liked the result, except next time I would try another colour (as natural colours are such a mystery, the annatto worked differently in a salt soap!!), trace it thicker so the salt wouldn’t sink to the bottom so much and make a little more quantity so that the soap would be taller.
Other than that, I am pretty pleased. I like the smell – with Litsea Cubeba, Lemongrass, Bitter Orange and Bergamot Essential Oils.
Hope you like it Amy!!
Will let you know as soon as I get YouTube sorted out.
