random homemade soaps

Standard

a few soaps i tried this weekend.

         

this is my kitchen sink soap. it’s made with avocado-cucumber base and a citrus antibacterial soap. it smells divine

this is one of my favorites. its a clear glycerin base with one of my favorite Victoria Secret scents with added dried lavender. i do not recommend adding dried goodies to your soap, they turn a funky brown and if you put them in clear glycerin, its just ugly. i remelted my original, added some goat’s milk base with added purple coloring and it worked out much better.

another Victoria Secret scent added to a clear glycerin base and a couple of silk flowers. i wish you could smell this. it just makes me happy.

one for the feet, one for the face. the orange soap has a foot scrub added, peach coloring in an avocado-cucumber base.

The white one is amazing. I added a combination of two face cleaners both with silicic acid… one a scub, one creamy added to a goat’s milk base. no color, no fragrance. Its soft and it lathers so so nice.

Cristi’s masterpiece. “the eye”. we did layers of a pink soap scented with citrus shower gel and the purple is the same scent but stronger in a goat’s milk base. we layered them so we could keep a consistent purple “eye” in the middle. this process will take a bit more practice. this soap is about 5″ long… I just love the shape!

this is a seriously cool soap. i added coffee grounds to a glycerin base with vanilla and berry scents. the coffee fell to the bottom of both soaps. i put them together so i have a double sided scrub. i crave brownies and mocha all the time now.

my leg shaving soap. i’m just in love with this. improvements to come. more here on the process.
