Oh my! Last week’s soapmaking adventure included two batches. The first was Tall Trees, a pot-swirled soap fragranced with Cedarwood essential oil—very woodsy and crisp-smelling. Tall Trees batch was a breeze. Our second batch was fragranced with Moroccan Mint fragrance oil from Bramble Berry. We decided to try the same yin yang swirl we had used earlier with a batch of Patchouli Yuzu. We colored half of the batch green and left the other half white. All went well as we poured the green and white into the mold simultaneously. Rick removed the dividers and it looked great! Then . . . I decided to move the tubes of Moroccan Mint closer the the tubes of Tall Trees, as they were at opposite ends of our stand. That way I could cover and insulate them all together. As I picked up a tube to move it, the bottom fell out and , well, the picture at left tells the rest of the story. I hope the family likes Moroccan Mint—they’re going to get some strangely-shaped soap next month. My new motto: DON’T move the soap!!
