Charcoal & Rose Clay Soap

I am hoping I get white suds, it’s easy to over do the charcoal and end up with grey bubbles. I cut them a little early, I could have waited another 12 hours but was impatient and there’s still some soda ash to clean up later. I scented it with Tea Tree Essential Oil.

I made the small soap hearts for a future project… lots of soda ash there.

Rose Soap and Tea Tree Kaolin Clay Cold Process Soap

Leave it to me to use a difficult sample scent for my first batch of cold process soap. Here is my rose scented soap. It was going to have some red swirls but there was no time. I also was learning how big of a recipe I needed for the mold I have. Recipe was a little small, not so pretty but it smells nice.

For my second batch things went a little more like I had planned. I ended up with the correct amount, the color, look and scent that I wanted and only a bit of soda ash to clean up. I was able to do the design I wanted.
