I wanted to color the soap naturally for this batch and decided to go with carrots. I was hoping the carrot puree would give a citrusy color and it sure did...it turned out to be a pretty golden color.
The carrot puree was added in right along with distilled water to make the lye solution.
And I have one more piece of news...it's still a work in progress, but I started an online shop. I pretty much spent all summer looking into online venues (there are so many!) and chose Zibbet...it seemed like a nice fit for me.
