After the cut...

Very psyched that I'm getting back into cold process soaps! I forgot how lovely it was to make it from scratch.  Here's my latest-- name to be determined. Originally it had lavender buds on top, but aesthetically wasn't my thing, so I cut the tops off.  Warning to soap makers: Using lavender buds is very much a "go big, or go home" kind-of-thing. I found that as I trimmed my bars they scattered everywhere, even clinged on my untouched areas of my soap. Not fun picking tiny buds off. Make sure it's what you want before decorating your tops with it. 

This soap is made with olive, coconut, (sustainable) palm and castor oils.  The scent is an intoxicating bold mix of lavender, cedar wood and pine. Definitely a great, unisex scent.
