When my hubby realized he forgot Valentine this year he saved his butt by giving me a gift card at the last minute. I used that gift card this week to buy supplies to make soap. I love bar soap and prefer it over liquid. The thing is I don't always like what's in them or the lack of knowing what's in them.
Yesterday I played with making soap and loved every minute of it. I used a Shea butter base and added Vitamin E Oil, Lavender, and Eucalyptus Oil. I used coloring that is designed to make bath bombs. My grand-daughter got a zillion of those (bath bombs) for Christmas and loves them. The next time I make soap - and there is going to be the next time - I am not using color. It's not needed. While I love the combination of lavender and eucalyptus in my defuser at night, hubby asked not to combine them for the soap, since he uses the soap, too. He likes one or the other but not both together. For my next soap experiments, I'll be using goats milk for one and oatmeal for the other. Hubby made me band labels, so I can keep my soaps apart and list ingredients if I use them for gifts.
lol ...always thinking.
