Finally More Soap!

It's been a long time since my last post.  I've sort of been on a soaping break, but now I'm back to soaping again!  I recently made a Gardener's Soap and some Salt Bars.  The Gardener's Soap is three layers filled with ground cocoa nibs, ground plantain skins, ground loofah, rose clay, dill weed, and calendula.  It's very lightly scented with Pikake Flower fragrance oil.

The soap is curing and will be ready in about four weeks.

The Salt Bars are made with sea salt and scented with peppermint, rosemary, and tea tree.  Sea salts are full of beneficial minerals such as magnesium, potassium, zinc, iodine, and calcium, and help to cleanse and draw out toxins from the skin.  Many think that the salt will cause the soap to be very exfoliating.  But as the salt is exposed and used, it becomes smooth as a polished stone.

I will probably be doing a patriotic soap next, and also plan on making some coconut milk soaps and beer soaps soon.  Will post pictures when they're done. 

Take care!
