Mmm...Soap!













Above are some samples of the bars of soap I made a few days ago.

 I have always wanted to try my hand at making home made bars of natural soap and am glad I did.  The clear bars are made from Olive Oil and the creamy bars are made from Goats Milk.

 I decided to not add any dyes or additives like oatmeal and such for my first time just to be safe.  On my next try I think I will play with natural dyes like beet juice and curry to see what they turn out like.  I would also like to add some fun things like coffee grounds and oatmeal.

For the scents I stuck with pretty common mixtures, they turned out really well and smell delicious.  I may try to play around with some different varieties of scents as I get more comfortable with making soap and become more daring!

What are some of your favourite scents?  Any tips or tricks that you would like to share?  Please leave a comment below or link to you blog or website.  Happy Crafting!!!
