I hadn't made soap for a while, until I received a few new fragrances last week. Since then, I have been making up for lost time.
I have a new recipe, as I am now planning on going palm free. My new recipe has lots of Shea butter in it, which seems to give my batter a creamer texture, is slower to trace and beautiful to work with. So my new batches are now taking on a life of their own. They are simpler, less colourful and I guess less technical. But I like it.
When I first began soaping, I decided I would call my business K.I.S.S as I was once told on a forum to 'keep it simple sweetie', and it's something I have to remind myself every time I make a batch.
Sometimes there is beauty in simplicity.
So here are some of my 'simpler' soaps
|This is a Vanilla and Cinnamon soap - I didn't use ANY colour in this, just a little TD. This could be a first for me!|
|The dark swirl is vanilla, the tan is cinnamon and the white is unscented|
|Berry and Cherry - O.k this has a little bit of colour and a touch of glitter, but I only used one colour|
|and a tiny swirl ;)|
|and a beer, oat and honey soap, scented with sandalwood. Simple.|
