Natural Handmade Soap "Mosaic Mint"

Handmade Soap, just-cut, Limited Edition "Mint Mosaic" 99.5% natural soap, with the fresh cooling essential oils of peppermint, cornmint & spearmint.

I've seen other soap ladies use "pieces" from previous batches as imbeds; Jen @Naturalmente Mediterraneo and AYU @ Tokyo Factory come to mind immediately.  This is only my second batch done this way, but I'm happy with the result!  For some reason the pics all turned out a bit "fuzzy"...not sure why, but after many attempts and much gnashing of teeth I have given up for today!

Only 14 bars -ready to ship 8-22-12. Pre-orders accepted. To reserve your bar(s) -please email becky@heirloomsoapworks.com

Hi Jen, To me it's very similar to peppermint in scent, but I find that a combination of mint oils tends to "hold" better in my soap recipe. If I use straight peppermint, for instance, it seems to fade on me. :)

Thanks Sonja, It was fun to make! :)
