eucalyptus and spearmint

I ordered some fragrances to try from a company that I ordered from only once.  I like the many choices they have, but it can be overwhelming on what to get!  The first one (fragrance oil, not my own blend) was Eucalyptus and Spearmint.  I like this one...it's a refreshing, pretty scent. No problems soaping this one, but could have gone a little higher on the FO percentage.  I used coconut milk in this batch, and also added chamomile because I love the specklies!

 eucalyptus and spearmint bars..and a big soap ball

I thinly cut the tops off with a cheese slicer (I don't have a planer) to make a more uniform bar and then rolled the cut pieces into one big soap ball.  None of my family members have ever seen a soap ball before, so it'll be interesting to hear what they say about it!

  1. Pretty Eucalyptus Spearmint soaps! I like the way the chamomile looks, too, and the scent combo sounds fantastic. I bought a bunch of EOs recently - I'll have to try out some blends. I love spearmint, and eucalyptus would pair very nicely with it!

    1. thank you! I really like spearmint too...I'm trying to come up with another blend with it. I can't wait to see what you come up with your new EOs! :)

    1. I can't get over how great it smells...thought it was going to have a strong, medicinal smell but it doesn't. It's just a very pleasant scent! Lately it seems like I want to put chamomile in everything, lol!
