Beautiful Botanicals Challenge Soap Submission – Karen

Soap makers are artists and scientists rolled into one and anyone who says differently needs a day shadowing a soap maker. Soap makers work with a media that can be unpredictable in shape or even colors but when things turn out just right, we all want to celebrate! Karen submitted a beautiful soap that used botanicals, micas and clay! Here is what she has to say about this bar.


This is a CP soap I made just for me.   I put in the things I  like.   From the bottom up, I did layers with  vanilla bean, rose hips, blue Cambian Sea clay, copper mica, red merlot mica.  Scented with bergamot,  lavender, lavendin, grapefruit.  I love these colors and the gentle scrubbiness. Very restful, very beautiful.

I agree Karen. It is a very beautiful soap and the scent blend sounds so delightful. Is anyone else wishing computers were scratch and sniff? I certainly am!
