I spent the afternoon reintroducing myself to the art of soapmaking. I used to make extremely elaborate soaps akin to those psychedelic beads you’d see in hipster stores all across South Street.
A little rusty, have to say….but it was still worth it.
I made three different scented soaps from a glycerin base, adding in oils and essential oils such as Coconut Oil, Avacado Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Honey, Lemon, Lime and Grapefruit Essential Oils, Tea Leaves, and Shimmer Powder … along with randomly-scented chunks of dyed soap from ten years back. Yup, they still smell amazing because back then, I was using synthetic scents vs essential oils.
