Soap Spheres

I finally made some soap spheres! These will definitely add a fun punch of color to my soaps. I found it a bit tedious rolling the soap into balls, but I like how they came out, and I can’t wait to use them again in a few larger batches.

Natural colorants were used in the soap: annatto, red clay, pink clay and parsley powder. The green is fading, and I used some of them in a mini-size rosemary lime soap. The smell is incredible. I am planning to wrap these up and give them to my nieces for Easter. Just the right size for little hands.

I used these guest size loaf molds from Wholesale Supplies Plus. I’m glad I found a small mold, but my soap does not slide out easily. It sticks, and I end up peeling it out of the mold. I think I need to use a firmer soap recipe, with less soft oils. Maybe adding beeswax will help. Any good recipe suggestions? New experiments will be coming up.

I’m Back

It’s been a very long time since my last post. Ever since I started working full-time, my soap making has taken a back seat. So I’ve decided to dust off the old soap blog. I love to make soap, and reading other soap maker’s blogs really inspires me to be creative and gives me new ideas for my soap.

This evening when I got home from work, I whipped up a batch of soap and separated it into six different colors using natural colorants: Annatto, turmeric, pink clay, red clay, cocoa powder, parsley powder, and natural. I plan on using these to make soap spheres. After I make them I will take a photo and post here.

Happy to be back!
