I anticipated this to be an easy challenge. I've made salt bars before, so I thought I'd change things up a bit - I used coconut milk in place of the water and pink himalayan salt in place of sea salt. Between packing for the HSMG Conference in Portland and getting a weeks' worth of errands done before leaving I created lovely pictures in my head of a beautiful blue soap with the twinkling of pink crystals shimmering throughout. Mmmm Hmm. Not so much.
I knew I could do better than this, so when I got home I tried again. The only difference in the recipe was that I did not add any colourant the second time round. I also oiled my mold with a bit of castor oil before pouring and waited til the next day to unmold.
|Much happier with this bar.|
