Soap Success - Inauguration Soap Day #2


Cutting was just completed a short while ago. On the curing racks they go! I am happy. :)

As a re-cap, the middle picture is the soap within minutes of being poured into the molds yesterday. The soap (in the middle pic) in the mold on the right was to be teal, green and white colored soap. See the peach in the photo, dotted throughout the soap? It made for some beautiful teal soap today! No peach. For those of you that are from the hippy era, and even those that are younger, this soap is scented (in my opinion) sort of mystical, far eastern. If you like patchouli, and this one is totaly different than patchouli, I believe you will like this one! I will say more about it in upcoming posts. I am one to get droplets of oils all over me when I soap. I keep a clean room, clean tables, clean instruments, but when I soap, I come out smelling good. I could wear the scent of this particular soap every day, I love it!

The soap on the left (in the middle pic) is pink grapefruit and mint green. Cut, (in the right pic) it is some gorgeous soap as well! Right now the mint is overpowering the grapefruit, but I believe it will settle down.

Anyhow...I hope you have had fun with this! I did!

Can I come live with you and milk goats and make soap and be your blog mistress (that sounded odd) and sweep your floors and do your laundry? I want a goat farm.

Oh goodness, Alix! You ARE a nut! And I really like nuts! I told Bob yesterday that I need a maid. But I don't want you to sweep my floors and do my laundry! I hope, pray, cross my fingers, you name it, that you get your goat farm!!! Daggone it, that is what I am all about, I encourage people to do what they feel they have in their bones to do, especially good things like raising goats. :)

The soap bars turned out pretty.

LOL at Alix's comment! I love living on a goat farm of course and have loved all the things you can do with goat milk and it's good for you too!

The soap looks very nice! I love the color! Do you have lids for your molds after you pour them or do you just leave them uncovered?

Mary @ Annie's Goat Hill said...

Thanks! Jennifer, I cover the molds with plastic wrap. It cuts down on the ashen appearance. I do have covers for the molds. I only cover certain recipes. Goat milk soap does not need insulated as much as soap formulas that contain water.

Is there some, you should pardon the expression, hallucinogenic in your soap? Middle picture? I don't see any middle picture? THERE ARE ONLY TWO PICTURES!!!

Either that or my senility has overtaken me faster than I realized.

Tee hee! One of us is seeing things. Or one of us cannot see things. The "middle picture," third one, is now below the other two pictures. It moved but it is still there. Odd! I wonder if everyone just sees two pictures, and I see three?
