I think this will be the final batch I’m going to make for our friend to take downstate to the farmer’s market, unless I decided to do an unscented/uncolored batch. There are other soaps I want to put together, for family, friends, and me. There are so many recipes I want to try! And I got some new colors, too! But for now, I have 2 dozen soaps for him to try to sell, and I think that’s a good start. If they sell, you can believe I will be a busy soaping bee, lol.
For this batch I decided to use the all natural essential oil, instead of using fragrance oils like I used in the other batches. Options, you know. I used a bright orange matte color, and some white French clay to make a slurry.
Yeah, that’s bright!
Fortunately, the color that resulted reminded me of a creamy orange Creamsicle.
Yum! They smelled so good!
Maybe I should have called them Dreamsicle bars, but I think that name is copyrighted. Not sure.
Anyway, which do you think is better – the top shot without flash …
Or the bottom shot with flash?
I can’t decide.
