I blogged earlier about visiting some of Oregon’s wonderful lavender farms.
I made up a quick batch of cold process soap using some gorgeous dried lavender from the Lavender Thyme Herb Farm in Candy.
I used a very soothing blend of lavender and mint essential oils. I can’t wait for this soap to cure for several more weeks before trying it out!
The sweet scent is just perfect and delightful for everyday use.

I recently made a batch of summer rose cold process soap. This soap is lightly scented and reminds me of taking an evening stroll in the summer through a rose garden.

I decided to use some fun shapes for these soaps – a butterfly and 2 different flowers – and they look lovely in the guest bathroom. I added a tiny amount of red oxide to give the soaps a slight pink swirl throughout. I think they turned out rather well – what do you think?
