Tropical Rose Soap
|In the summer there is nothing better than a rich lather soap with oils from the tropics. Enjoy the splendor from a rich lathering soap with the luxury of Shea Butter. Tropical beaches with warm sand and cold drinks are now no more than a shower away! Who knew such a rich, extravagant vacation existed in the form of a bar? Come join me for some good summer fun.
I really was delighted with the outcome of this soap. (Even though I soaped at too high of temperatures and ended up with a cosmetically challenged bar.) It is a glorious soft pink and this soap smells of heirloom tea roses. It reminds me of one time when I visited an older couple to help them pick apples from their enormous tree. Their backyard looked like it was ready to host a wedding. The yard was rimmed in gorgeous blooming heirloom tea roses. I have never smelled anything so good. Come join me in this beautiful yard surrounded by towering trees and blooming flowers.
When making this soap, I didn’t let my oils or lye solution cool like I should have. As a result, the soap volcanoed and I had to force it through saponification. This gave me a cosmetically challenged bar, but I was so impressed with my results, I can’t wait to make this again where the bars are perfect. (Cross your fingers for me!) Don’t forget to request one of these delightful soaps in your next order today!
Patience is a virture… patience is a virture… patience doesn’t exist in my being no matter how many times I utter those words!!!
