I've got all those beautiful spring and summer fragrances to try out.
I was going to start right away but forgot I had no frozen distilled water. With all the milks I use I have to keep the lye cold so iced distilled water is a must. I still had other things to do to get ready anyway. Like make white. White soap colorant is a real pain. It gets lumpy. It's messy. I make a big container of it at one time so I don't have to keep fiddling with it.
I also measured out lot of little containers of lye that I weighed out for the recipe I'm using this time around. I hate playing with the lye so I get as much done as I can at one time so I just have to pick it up and go when I feel like soaping.
The first two batches will be these. I bought them for the baby shower and never used them as they didn't smell very boyish. I like them though. They will be perfect for spring.
Since I couldn't make soap I made some more fizzies in my favorite fig scent.
I also got the last soap I made cleaned up and ready to wrap. It's Black Magic and Oud Wood and I have to say it's......different. I emptied all the oil and butter leftovers into the batter so it's very rich. It doesn't lather well but it's very creamy and leaves your skin feeling so silky. I'm going to put it away until fall since it really is more fallish in scent and color. It should be even better by then.
