Orange Spice [Oct. 24th, 2005|02:38 pm]


I made an Orange Spice Soap this weekend that may be the grooviest thing I've ever smelled. It was just a little test batch of whipped soap, in one of my little KitchenAid silicon loaf molds...but oh man, it may be my new favorite soap.

For scenting, I used 5fold orange essential oil (2 parts) and one part Clove essential oil. I added ground clove and ground ginger to the soap itself, just before pour.

Oh...so very, very good. :)

Pics soon.

Also pictures of the disaster show soon. Soon being a relative term which means, "Has anyone seen my camera? Hello?"

I really like mixing orange, cardamom, and sandalwood oils in soap. With a little ground cardamom for texture and color. Your soaps sound delicious!

Oooooh, that sounds like an exquisite blend! We'll have to do a swap sometime!
