My first soap


 Share

Recommended Posts

Here is a picture of my first soap. :yay: It is colored with paprika, which gives the soap a nice light orange color (the best I could describe the color). It also has oatmeal. It is scented with sweet orange EO but the scent did not hold. Hopefully it came out ok. I am not brave enough to try the tongue test. Sorry for the big picture, I don't know how to minimize it.

WTG that is sooo pretty!! :thumbsup:

So, you can't smell the orange EO at all? How much did you use? Do you think it just got eaten up in the processing or what?

That's a bummer, but it sure is pretty.

Oh and I just HAD to do the tongue test with MY first soap I made the other day I didn't want to be left out of the tongue zappers. ;)

And yep, I got a little zap, but I cut off a little sliver and I've got LATHER, so I know I actually made soap!! :yay:

You really need to anchor most citrus EO's in soap because they do fade fast!! Try a tad of Litsea or Patchouli is also a good anchor. There's probably others and hopefully someone will chime in that has more knowledge on EO's in soap!! :cool2: I know personally I finally used an orange FO to get a good orange soap.

Yikes, Robin! That's alot of drops! LOL

Your soap looks wonderful........You could always just add a drop or two to the bars of soap now........it'll probably sink in? I don't know........but it's just a suggestion..........??

The same thing happened to a Patchouli EO I used. Now you'd never even know it was patchouli. I mine as well say it's unscented! Darn it.
