I trimmed and labelled some soap today.
Strawberry Kiwi. Lovely fresh fragrance, lovely fresh colours.
Lavender Vanilla – do you like the flying-seagull shape the swirl in the top soap formed? I used the Brambleberry Black Amber Lavender fragrance oil for this one, and swirled in some unfragranced blue soap (because any vanilla-containing fragrance oil will discolour to brown – as you can see.)
Mulled Honey, an unfragranced uncoloured soap with hempseed oil and honey added.
Choconilla! Dark Rich Chocolate and Warm Vanilla Sugar fragrance oils in the dark brown layer, with cocoa for colour. The top layer is unfragranced, and has vanilla bean paste added.
Fruit tingle! This fragrance oil is strangely called ‘Ginger Fish’, but it smells for all the world like effervescent Fruit Tingles. A little orange ultramarine added for colour.
Baileys soap, a Mother’s Day special. This soap has vanilla-sugar fragrance and a little chocolate fragrance, Irish Whiskey, cream, and milk. Edible.
Juniper Bay: a dragon soap with juniperberry and bay laurel essential oils. Herbally-green.
I also put together a little photo tutorial on rebatching soap trimmings, at my livejournal.
