Moonlit Lavender? Lavender Mist?
I was pouring soap for a special-order...my regular ol' Lavender Oatmeal. However, the order was not going to be an entire batch, soooo...Becky decided to get creative with the remaining soap.
I used some Alkanet powder, mixed with just a tad bit of olive oil, mixed in at trace.
The results are rather un-remarkable. The top of the soap is actually a nice "frosty" lavender. The rest though, I just don't know. I sure hope it gets a bit more lavender-ey as it cures.
I do like it better than the old way with no color. At least I can look at it and know immediately what variety it is. (Without my normal "crazed sniffing" -a great benefit of colored soaps -no matter how pitiful the color may be! he he)
I'm sure it will grow on me...it seems they always do after a day or so, when I've released my expectations and just appreciate them as they are.
At least no one will say "Oh, they're too pretty to use!" LOL Boy do they smell good, though! : )
I can't decide whether to call it Moonlit Lavender, Lavender Mist, or maybe Lavender Frost....what do you think? Would any of these names help you decide to buy this funky colored soap?
