When Life Hands You Limes, Make Soap!

I spent the evening testing out some new scents and working on some new recipes. Here's the results:

Some basic M&P, uncolored, but testing the Lime Cilantro scent from Soaper Supply.

Nice citrusy scent, but I think I'll let the soap age for a while and see what happens.

A bit of a mess-up with this cinnamon soap. The glycerin base was too hot when I poured it into the mold, so the cinnamon settled to the bottom. Probably should have used a base with better suspension anyway. Might have to melt it down and try again. Smells good, though.

Here's my own version of chocolate sugar scrub. I whipped it up using sugar, cocoa and shealoe butter. Can't wait to try it out!

And don't you just love these little 8oz. canning jars? So cute!

This blog is an offshoot of my first--30-Something With Cats and is meant to house my opinions and results of soap-making. There will be product reviews of things I find interesting, as well. But if you're looking for stories about bowling and the cats, head back over to the other blog.

It might take me some time to get this blog set up the way I want it, so be patient!
