So this last week I had to make another batch of Goat Milk Soap because I was running out of stock. I have friends that rely on it and cannot run out! So last week I made a batch that ended in ultimate fail! I did a couple things different that I had done preciously which I think was probably a big mistake. I ended up with complete separation! First time ever! So I brought out the crock pot and decided to try and salvage it by cooking it. This would have worked fine if I hadn't left it and it got a bit too hot, which gave it a roasted scent, (no scent added). I had a friend that really needed some so I brought it to her hoping the scent wouldn't be repulsive and thankfully she liked it! So anyway this past Sunday I had to make a new batch and it turned out fabulously!
With this batch I added a tsp of Titanium Dioxide which lightened it up a bit, and I added Colloidal Oats for exfoliate. I cannot wait to use this soap! Its so creamy!
The next batch I made was a Coco Butter soap, with Veg Shortening, Olive Oil, and Castor Oil. I scented it with Gardenia and Lime and a touch of Champagne, it turned out heavenly! I wanted to use my Chromium Oxide for the green and then I wanted a touch of yellow and some white. The marbling turned out a little different than I planned however I kind of like it. And the soap is so creamy and silky, I love the way it turned out! I feel like with each batch I am getting so much closer to a great looking bar of soap and maybe even a little closer to a work of art.
That of course is my goal. To create a soap that is silky, and creamy awesomeness for you skin and yet creative and artsy to look at. There is so much inspiration out there!
