I have been enjoying this new fragrance from Natures Garden, “Baby Clean”. It is a delicate clean scent and while it does not bring up baby images when I smell it I do enjoy the clean, fresh scent. The vendor describes it as:
“…top notes of granny smith apple, lemon zest, and hints of mint, rounded out with blossoms of spring wildflowers, butterfly violets & honeysuckle…”
I recently tried it with the “sugar melting scrub” :(, so this time around I decided to try it with cold press soap. I was very happy with the results. It was a wonderful scent to work with, no acceleration or ricing. Gave me time to play around. Here are the results, I added sodium lactate for a harder bar and I was able to unmold and cut right away.
I used ultramarine blue to come up with a very light blue and the other half of the soap I added Kaolin Clay for a light off-white color and almost natural. Here is a pic:
I have also been getting a little obsessed with bath products. I tried a bubble bar and it did not go that well. I did a little digging up in the Internet and checked out the Soap Queen TV YouTube channel. I discovered this recent tutorials on how to do Bath Truffles. Yahoo…something new to try! Here is Anne Marie’s video tutorial:
and here is a pic of my results:
I decided to use Shea and Mango Butter, replaced the SLS with SLSA. I think I may have gotten a little carried away with the butter since when I crumbled it in the bath most of my bubbles went flat 🙁
But I did enjoy the extra oils in the bath water. It does make surfaces slippery after so you need to use caution when stepping out.
All in all I was happy with my first Bath Truffle. Thank you Anne Marie for the video tutorial! 🙂
