|The weather is changing to winter and while I love the holiday season, I couldn’t stop myself from daydreaming about next summer and the fresh flowers. To help solve my desire to stop and smell the roses, I made this fun soap that smells just like a fresh summer bouquet. I think you will enjoy this soap as much as I do!

* To make these soaps, I did need to do some work just to prepare the colors I would use. I mixed the Amethyst Pink Dry color with Liquid Glycerin and then mixed well. From now on, I will refer to this as Liquid Amethyst Pink Color. I used the amount I desired to color my soap, but you can use more or less as you desire. This item has been marked as q.s. “Quantity Sufficient” for this purpose.
Measure fixed oils on your scale. Warm the fixed oils on the stove or in the microwave. I melted the oils in the microwave. Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well. Combine the scent blend in a beaker and set aside.
Combine oils and lye solution. Mix until thin trace. Upon light trace, add the scent blend and Liquid Amethyst Pink Color. Stir well. Pour soap into the desired mold I used a different style of the Guerrilla Mold from Dirk’s post. Allow to sit until soap is firm.
The next morning cut into bars. Stack to allow good air circulation. Allow to cure for several days before using. Longer curing will result in a harder bar.
Thanks for joining me on my latest scenting adventure. The Summer Rose Bouquet soap samples have been sent to the Shipping Department to send out in orders. I really want to hear your comments about this or any of the other recent soaps. I hope that anyone wanting a sample soap will request one and if we have any samples we will send them to you.
What blends would you make to remind you that summer will come back? I’d love to hear what you would make!
