This week’s challenge was super fun! In the previous weeks, I’d attempted a 2 color swirl, then 3 colors, and now I’m up to a whopping FOUR! Though I’ve still only made a handful of batches of soap, I’m feeling more accomplished by the minute!
This soap was made with a fragrance called Awapuhi Seaberry. The scent description includes notes of white ginger, florals, melon and berries (among other things). It’s very sweet, but I can’t quite put my finger on what I smell the most. So I went with melon pink, soft yellow, lavender, and a sage green to represent all the different scents in their feminine glory. It certainly smells divine!
Since every batch I’ve made so far has traced faster than I expected or wanted, I got smart and changed my base oil recipe for this batch. I had much more time to work with it, and the fragrance behaved perfectly giving me lots of play time!
I started the pour in 2 spots inside my smallest one-pound mold, then changed the positioning of the pour when it was half-full. I love the results! Even my hubby called it “beautiful!” I would never have dreamed he would call a soap beautiful! Goes to show that my excitement is starting to rub off! I’m so glad he’s supportive of my new addiction…er…hobby!
