Summer Beauties (not soap)
Today, even as I type, I'm making a batch of lye soap. That's a no-brainer, but later I hope to make a batch of "Beach Blanket Bingo"...using my new suntan lotion-smelling fragrance oil. I feel a bit decadant, making a custom soap for myself. I do that for other friends and family members all the time, but I tend to use bars that are cut wrong, or have other "defects"....that's a bit silly, isn't it?
I'm thinking of adding honey to half of the batch to get two different hues to swirl...maybe a line of cocoa in the middle -I've never tried that. Adding the colors has certainly re-kindled the soaping excitement for me!
I'll post the results tomorrow, but for now, enjoy the flowers!
Happy skin, ~Becky
