Well, yesterday was exhausting, and to make a long story short, I didn't make the HP soap....yet.
I think this delay may actually help the final color, what with the additional steeping and all. I'm lovin' the color of the "water" part of my brew, and believe that it will be even more vibrant after blending the leaves into the liquid with my handy stick blender.
I'm hoping to make the soap later this afternoon. I will post pictures along the way if possible. :)
