Gotta love when a trip to Salva turns up a treasure like this one! Sweet!

Soap Surprises

Posted on Updated on

One of the best parts of making soap is the unexpected results!  You never know for sure what will happen.  So when the batch that was supposed to be a deep brown/orange color with the scent of nutmeg ends up looking pink and covered with a white dust, it’s time to pull out the potato peeler!

We experimented with thick silk leaves from hydrangeas and pressed them into the soaps after pouring.  That’s where the funky indentations came from.IMG_7490 Not too shabby (for a botched batch 🙂 )IMG_7489
