Hello everybody! I know I said I wouldn't be making soap over the summer but my soap supply company made it too tempting to ignore all their new beachy scents.
I was thinking of having a midsummer giveaway with just the CP soap. They don't melt in the hot sun like some of the other things do so I should be able to get away with mailing them.
I also owed Daughter some floral scented soap since I shortchanged her with all those fruity scents she hated during the last giveaway. She loves honeysuckle so that was the first to be made. It all went well until the yellow turned orange.
Here is the colorant. How did that happen? That was an omen that the soap gremlins were at work. It only got worse from there.
The two beach soaps look so pretty and smell so good-but they riced. That means that the batter clumped up like cottage cheese before I could pour it into the mold.
I should have looked at the reviews of the fragrance oils because it seems this is a common occurrence with these naughty scents in CP soap. I'll have to use it for other things like lotion bars or fizzies.
Ricing is not a good thing for the PH levels so I would never give it away. Sadly, both of those pretty loaves are now destined for the hand soap bin. Darn. I'm not giving up though. I've got more beachy smells on the way-and this time I checked the reviews.
