There is such a process behind it all, not just how it is going to look at the end, cause you really never know. The soap can change so dramatically with the addition of a different oil, or scent, or ingredient. Cold pressed soap also tests your patience, you have to cure, or rest your soaps, for a period of 4-6 weeks once they are made. This kills me! I almost always want to use it straight away, to see if it is going to be a great soap. Is it moisturising? Does it make enough bubbles? Does it last? Is it a little bit unique and individual? And how does it leave my skin feeling afterwards?
I feel like I have finally cracked it! It has taken me months. This is a soap bar I made today. It is made with coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, mango butter and shea butter. I also sprinkled a spa mineral on top. I used almond biscotti and dark rich chocolate, which I bought from brambleberry.com, to fragrance. These are the best fragrances I have ever used and smelt in my life! I have so many of them. I add them to bath water, or oil burners, or my handmade soaps, I just love love love them!
They almost look and definitely smell edible! Like a big chocolate loaf cake.
