Feelin' like a natural woman

As much as I love playing with colors and blending and adding scents to make my soaps unique, I think simplicity has its own beauty. And, a lot of people prefer unscented, uncolored soap. So I've been on a "simple soap" kick lately, giving my inventory a boost and having a lot of fun, too.
a high olive oil soap, with buttermilk as the liquid
Honey Wheat
I didn't add a scent, of course, but it has the delicate fragrance of a honey graham cracker. Oh, and egg yolk to make it extra creamy.
Good ol' beer soap-- I love how beer makes my skin feel!
And cut....
Still ahead is an all-vegetable oil soap with homemade oat milk, next week. Pictures to come!

  1. I've been on the same natural kick lately. It just feels good to make a plain but good lookin' bar of soap. I think it might be ending for me soon though. I have a lot of design and fragrance things in the works.

  2. Gorgeous soaps, Amy! I like to play with colors and techniques, too, but sometimes I want the natural beauty of a simple soap. Great job!
