Things are changing little by little with the blog, if you haven't noticed already. I get bored easily with the blog backgrounds for one, and seem to change them frequently. Another thing is I redirected my domain name to my blog...figured I'd put it to use than leave it parked. I have no desire to start another blog, and this is just easier for me.
This was a batch I made last month...a blend of grapefruit, lemongrass and lavender. I've made grapefruit and lavender before and I've also made lemongrass and lavender. It's interesting how they're all similar yet different, if you know what I mean.
"Fresh", "sunny" is what I think of when I smell the bars. My husband didn't care for the grapefruit and lavender soap I made last year, but he really likes this (I know he's a fan of lemongrass, so this must be why). I also added kaolin clay, ground oats and beeswax
to the batch. The bars are really thick, too...I wanted to cut them a
little bit bigger than I normally do...and, well, I decided that I don't
want them to be this big! And I have another batch where I cut the bars
this thick too, lol. Ah well, at least I know how thick I like my bars
to be now.
