Relaxing Sunday

Good Day All!
I was feeling good enough to make a few batches of soap this weekend, and have enjoyed my afternoon of cutting, so I thought I'd share.  I've had alot of trouble using my PVC pipe as a mold in the past.  I love the round soap bars but always grew frustrated to the point of fury getting it out of the tube.  Yesterday I tried parchment inside the pipe and it slipped right out with just a gentle pull! So that's the way to do it for sure!  I also tried a few new fragrance oils, both from Sweet Cakes (Bergamot Coriander and Mango Tea). I have yet to be disappointed with anything I've purchased and am extremely impressed with the quality of their oils. A few weeks ago I did "Romance", with WSP's "Romance in Bed" and the swirl turned out very cool - hopefully ready in time for Valentine's Day gifts.  They all smell wonderful, and it feels good to be doing my thing again.
"Southern Sweet Tea"
"Gulf Stream"



  1. All three batches look great, Angie! The swirls are so pretty. I especially love the bright, happy colors of the Southern Sweet Tea soap!

    1. Thank you for the compliments, Jenny - I admire your work, so that means alot to me!
