Remember the kid’s gimmicky toy (if you could call it that) ‘Slime’ from back in the ‘70‘s & ‘80‘s? It came in a little garbage bucket and it was basically green goop - it was gross, smelled funny and had virtually no purpose whatsoever. I was trying to explain it last night to my 10 year old step-daughter after a trip to Cracker Barrel Restaurant. My husband and I were reminiscing about all the retro toys and candy they had for sale and Slime just came up.
Well, anyway, raw soap is kind of the consistency of Slime - but really hot!
So it’s pretty difficult to work with, and once it starts to cool off and you add fragrance and colorants, it begins to harden into more of a play-dough texture. So you can imagine how tricky it is to try and get it into a mold and then have it come out looking gorgeous!
Well, I wanted to try to represent sort of a floral bouquet - pinks, yellows, purples and greens - since the fragrance I blended is Flowers & Ferns. It kind of ended up looking more like scooped sherbet, but I’m okay with that! It was fun!
Here’s the description for Soap #26:
Bellissima Handmade Triple Milk Blend Bath Soap in Flowers & Ferns
Our amazing Triple Milk Blend Soap in Flowers & Ferns is incredibly creamy and full of lather with our triple blend of protein-rich milk (goat, cow & organic coconut) and luxurious all-veggie oils like olive, high-oleic sunflower seed and rice bran to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated.
Flowers & Ferns delivers a bouquet of sweet, bright flowers and earthy, herbal greens. Morning Lily, Jasmine, Geranium, Hyacinth and Violet blend beautifully with green mosses, clover, rosemary, patchouli and cedar. A touch of zesty lemon adds an element of surprise to this clean, floral, ultimately fresh scent!
