Well, now that the awards have been handed around and we've gotten all sorts of randomness off our chests, it's back to soap for me. (Have you noticed that I haven't even posted a picture of soap in weeks?!)
It's been a big week around here--our computer is back from the shop with a brand-new hard drive, so I get to try out my new label program, and today we said goodbye to three years of dial-up internet. In spite of my dreams of life sans a computer, I have to admit, this wireless thing is pretty spiffy stuff!!! And the digital camera that I thought had bit the dust has come back to life.
I thought I'd show you a batch of soap I made not too long ago, using parsley as my colorant. Super easy! And I love the results.
After grinding the parsley as finely as I could with a mortar and pestle I added it to my melted oils before adding the lye mixture.
I scented it with Eucalyptus Blossom--oh, how I LOVE this scent!
What was a bright green has mellowed into a beautiful, perfect avocado green. Look for it in my Zibbet shopby August 5th!
