Making Chocolate Covered Strawberry Soap

Guys, let me tell you, I know this is soap but it is really hard not to bite it. It smells soooo good!  For this Chocolate Covered Strawberry soap, I blended two fragrances - Chocolate Espresso from Bramble Berry (an all time favorite!) and Sugared Strawberry from Nurture Soap. The bottom "chocolate" layers have a blend of these two fragrances. The red "strawberry" portion has only the Sugared Strawberry in it. That is because the Chocolate Espresso fragrance oil discolors the soap to a dark brown, and I did not want the strawberry to look rotten! 😲 To watch the...

Coconut Dream Soap

Repeat step two in two other spots on the end of the mold (i.e. left then right then middle). Repeat steps 2 and 3 over and over...

February Soap Challenge - Lemon Birthday Cake

Hi, guys! I'm entering my second soap challenge! For February, the challenge was to find a friend or family member that has never made soap before and verbally guide them through making the challenge entry. This was tough. I'm not very articulate and I tend to be a "if you want something done right, do it yourself" sort of person, so having to explain and not touch was a challenge, indeed! However, I could not be happier about how Lemon Birthday Cake turned out!  Lemon Birthday Cake is scented with Lemon Meringue Pie from Nature's Garden. It smells heavenly! It...
