    Soap!!!

    Advertisements
    Anyone else here ever make soap?

    I was in the craft store today and got inspired. I've made it before for little Christmas gifts... and I tried making some for Valentine's day for DB but I used too much smelly stuff so they smelled too girly and I threw 'em away... lol

    But I'm gonna make some for DB I bought regular bar molds.... and mint/eucalyptus oil (his absolute FAVORITE scent...). Yay I'm tempted to experiment.... make green soap and shred it... then pour the flakes into the clear glycerin. wonder if it'll work

    Anyone else try anything like it?

    i used to make soap and why dont you try cutting the green soap into chunks and putting it in-it'll be less likely to melt during the setting and looks cool and modern.... just a suggestion.

    I always had problems with not long after making the soap it would get all beady. I have 2-3 soap making books too with really cool ideas in them!!! and making bath fizzies, bath salt, shampoo, ect. Really cool!

    I got inspired once in the craft store in the candle aisle and made them. I saw the soap, thinking messy did the candles instead. They were cute though you know and those are easy easy to make and are pretty and make nice gifts.

    Ohhhh so I went to Michael's again tonight.... and found all kinds of awesome soap stuff... I couldn't resist. I'm gonna make him another batch. I bought little herbal "fillers" so it'll be kinda exfoliating.... eucalyptus!! So it'll smell like mint/eucalyptus AND actually have eucalyptus shreds susprended in it. I also bought this really cute handmade paper to cut into strips and wrap around & tie with a ribbon.

    Ohhh I got so inspired... hehe
