We were back out in the gnarly woods again yesterday.

As promised, today's the day to unload some soap!
I tried out some new things with these batches. Some things worked, some didn't. They are made with aloe juice instead of water.
The batter was different than I am used to. It didn't behave like I expected it to but I've been using all these soaps for weeks now and I love them. They are nice a bubbly. Aloe was a win but pricey. I think I'll do without now that this bottle is history.
Then there was the design. Six weeks ago I had lots going on with the kitchen mess so I thought I would keep it simple. I just would add a little white mica to the base color and separate it with a thin pencil line of metallic mica.
Oh, dear. That was a fail. It looks pretty but you may end up with two little bars after use. Some split. Some did not. I'm not sure how your particular bar will react but it's still a nice soap even if it does split in half.
I just can't stop making soap.
