Last week The Mister came home with a candle. SIL wanted to know if I could make a lotion bar to match its fragrance. I was pretty worried about pulling it off until I took a sniff.
It was vanilla. Pure and simple. The candle is called Vanilla Sea Salt but I only pick up the warm vanilla scent. After doing a lot of research, I ordered a bottle of vanilla fragrance oil and hoped for the best. This time I got lucky. SIL is getting a bunch of stuff because it was just too much fun once I got going.
Vanilla can be difficult because it turns everything brown over time so I only added the scent to the dark bits. It still smells amazing.
The lotion bar is so yummy I want to eat it. I can't stop using the one I made myself.
I finished up the little bottle by using it in a cold processed soap that is the most delicious thing ever. Meet...what else, Vanilla Sea Salt. It has Himalayan Sea Salt on the top along with my obligatory glitter. I can't wait for it to cure. I can already tell it's going to be heavenly.
