Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday! I would have been the last person to expect me back in the kitchen today after how I felt, but it seems as quickly as what ever it was came on, it also left. I feel back to my normal self today! Apart form a wicked, chesty cough what would rival any 80 year old smoker…
I decided to make a batch of soap early this morning to try and bridge the gap on the curing rack… started with BB’s Blackberry Sage as that’s one of the ones that is currently ready and, while I love the swirls I did on the previous batch, especially the colour, it produces light purple lather. Oopsie. Was working with a new colour and the bottles they come in don’t have drippers on them so I ended up with way more than I had planned.
I’ve since transferred all the colours to new bottles and decided that it was a good one to re-do first.
Was the last of that fragrance too. MUST get some more, oh my goodness it’s the yummiest scent!
After being so pleased with myself at the top swirls, I decided I wanted to do another soap. Another super popular one was the BB Black Raspberry and Vanilla I did last time. BIG, BIG hit that scent! And it’s such a dream to work with that it was an obvious choice.
I’ve been trying to get my colours right for this for a while now, and am pretty darn happy with today’s attempt!
I’m really curious to see that loaf cut up. I hate waiting!
The swirls on that top worked so well it got me thinking. I wonder how cool a soap would look if it had that effect the entire way through?!
Well, everything happens in three’s… right?
One for the men… Blue Musk! I can’t wait to see what these bars look like as I layered the colours from bottom to top and stuck my swirling stick all the way to through!
Regardless of swirls though – I am LOVING that blue colour! A benefit to goat’s milk soap is the white of the milk allows me to take a dark blue soap colour and use just a few drops to get the most amazing aqua blue!
Feels SO good to make soap again! After the past week’s break due to a sickly household, I’ve also been feeling the soapers version of writers block which has been beyond frustrating. But, like that best friend horse… I’m back in the saddle and off already! Ride like the wind Bullseye!!
