We’ve been busy with the latest soap we’ve made and I keep refining the labels, making them ever smaller.
The pear soap that she rebatched turned out very nice and we’re calling it “Cotton Candy.” The fancy term for rebatching, as I may have stated before, is “French Milled.” Big whup!
I got a couple of the Cotton Candy bars labeled and down to the senior center, but not on the website yet.
She also rebatched the “leftovers” from my Magenta Lavender soap and we glopped it into the bottom of the silicone mold. Then we mixed up a small batch of soap where we substituted canola oil for olive oil in the hopes of getting a whiter white than usually is possible with olive oil and it worked! We got a really nice white.
We added some lavender EO, but not enough to make a difference. In other words, we can’t smell it. We also added some poppyseed to the white top, but not quite enough.
So now we have this beautiful soap with a raspberry-colored base and white top and can’t figure out what to call it. We’ll have to put our thinking caps on.
We went to Goodwill and found a perfect little tray to replace the basket we’ve had at the senior center for several years. The basket we’ve had there was too small. The new tray is at least half again larger, so that’s nice because it allows us to display more soap.
