In July, I posted about the two new soaps I had on the rack, Beach and Patchouli. They’ve finished curing and are ready for purchase. Since I’ve been spending the past month getting re-used to having a baby in the house, I haven’t really done more with these soaps than stand and admire them, picking them up to sniff them and show them off to visitors. These soaps have enjoyed a longer cure time, resulting in even milder, harder bars than the high quality soaps I usually make. And they’re still curing! I’m leaving them on the rack until the very last minute.
This is the Patchouli soap in all its psychedelic glory. This soap features my most ambitious swirl attempt ever – seven colors. If you’ll pardon a bit of vanity, I’m really proud of these. Not only are these a visual and olfactory treat as dry bars, but using them increases the pleasure. Patchouli’s warm, earthy, spicy, sensual scent wraps itself around you, and each use of the soap reveals a new and different swirl as each layer of color fades away. These soaps are moving fast; I’ve already sold all but two soaps from this batch. Click here to order yours today.
