Can you stand yet another soap post? I always look forward to making Witches Brew so I am super excited about sharing this one.
It's the kitchen sink of soaps.
Meaning I don't hold back on additives. It's got it all.
It's hard to use that many colors. You've got to pour at just the right time and mixing all those colors becomes a race to get it done before it gets too thick to pour. The first pour was great, the second. Well, you'll see. I made two loaves but I only need one so it was a risk worth taking.
For those of you who asked, here's a peek at my fragrance shelf. I use a lot of different brands including Brambleberry.
My tops are better. I watched some videos on texturing soap tops and let the soap sit while I cleaned up the mess before I took a spoon to it.
The next morning the first pour was just as I expected. Nothing fancy. I don't do fancy anymore...
...unless I have the soap thicken up on me so badly that all I could do was to spoon it in the mold in layers and than take a hanger to it to make those swirls. Nice, huh? I thought I was being efficient by trying to mix the lye in both pots of oils at the same time. Of course the second one got too thick while I was working with the first. No matter. I LOVE this one!!!
