Yummy! Is it frosting or body butter?

Mary Kate said they look and feel like frosting. I made these the other day and already are my new favorite thing. That's a little Oprah-esque. Oh well. This stuff is great especially now with how dry my skin gets in the winter.

All sorts of new lip balms

Razzleberry plum
Stay toasty coconut
Bubbly Bubblegum

I got crazy the other day and made 11 flavors of lip balm. I had so much fun! These are just a few of them. My favorite of the day was the juicy watermelon. It smells delicious!

The unveiling of peppermint and pumice

Here's the soap just out of the mold. Let me tell you it smells up the whole room just like a peppermint stick.
Cutting the soap.
Here are all the yummy bars. They will sit for four weeks until they are ready for use.

My soapmaking process

This soap I'm making in these pictures is Peppermint Foot Scrub with pumice.
My liquid oils-olive, castor, rice bran.
Fragrance oil- this one is Peppermint Stick
Here are my solid oils and butters starting to melt- shea butter, palm oil, coconut oil.
Lye water with aloe.
Almost finished melting.
Pouring in the lye water.
Here's what it looks like when you first pour the lye water in with the oils.
Blending away.
In this picture I've already added my colorant (in this case, titanium dioxide) and the pumice.
Now I'm adding the fragrance oil. It smells just like a candy cane. Yum yum!
Pouring the raw soap into my 4 pound loaf mold.
Gotta get the very last drop.

Covered over and waiting 24 hours until I unmold it. I hate the waiting.
