Lately I find myself with the challenge of trying to figure out which fragrance to soap with. As I have come to find out, one of the other addictions with soaping is the fragrances! You just can’t get enough of them :). Just browsing the online stores gets you in trouble really quick! You just want to buy them all! 🙂 🙂 :)!
I am thankful that I have a pretty good stash right now to keep me happy for a couple of days. One of them has been calling out to me for sure …”Lemon Verbena”.
It’s a really nice fragrance. Bramble Berry’s description of this fragrance is:
a wonderfully complex blend of Italian Bergamot, Lemon Verbena mixed with sultry Primrose and Violet. Rounding the blend out is a dry down of Amber and White Musk and just a little drop of Peppermint for an energizing surprise!
I just had all these ideas going on in my head. I knew for sure that I wanted to add some Goats Milk in this bar. I decided not to use all Goats Milk but instead a portion to add at light trace. I also added tiny purple Jojoba Beads for gentle exfoliation. My color scheme: yellow, white and a touch of purple.
The fragrance did accelerate a bit on me. But it was not so bad. My only challenge was that I had hoped to do some more fluid swirls but instead ended up doing more of a spoon swirl. I was afraid of overheating due to the milk so I ended up freezing it just to be sure. Overall, I am happy with the results and most definitely the fragrances. The bars smell wonderful, and if lemon is a favorite of yours this is a sure winner!
I have one more soap blog that I hope to post soon. A nice “Clean” scent bar. I also have been playing with trying to do some flower piping…and that will be a pretty good story to tell! Stay tuned!
