I've been seeing soaps made with this mold and have been so impressed with it that I finally broke down and bought it. I will be buying another one (I only purchased one). I scented this particular batch with a fragrance called Driftwood & Sea Salt.
Locally made, small batch, handcrafted soaps using readily available, ethically sourced ingredients. We make them, we use them, we love them.

Transparent Soap - Let's Try Again
One thing I've often been told since I was a child is that I'm pretty stubborn. I certainly can be, especially when it comes to getting things to my own expectations. That can certainly be said for the transparent soap. I couldn't just make it once and let it go if it wasn't perfect.
So, I tried it again.
And, this time, it worked perfectly! The thrill of walking into my soap room to see if I could unmold the soap and finding it clear made me a little giddy.
Here's the first one, so you can see the difference.
As much as I enjoyed making this soap, I don't think it's one I'll make all the time. Don't get me wrong - it's a lovely soap but it isn't the cheapest to make and even though it can be used as a melt & pour soap, it seems to have a pretty low melting point that isn't conducive to a lot of creativity. I'll likely use it to make some fun little soaps for the next market and for some special occasions but it won't be a regular item in my booth.
