This week's challenge was for an 'all natural' soap. I've been wanting to come up with a new 'spa' bar for my collection; here was the perfect opportunity. Enter avocado and seaweed.
That unpleasant odour from the bladderwrack - SERIOUS understatement. It just plain STUNK - as in YUCK!!! Oh, how glad I was that I cut back from a 4 pound recipe to a 2 pound recipe! I have never smelled anything so bad in all my soap making days.
That was yesterday. This morning I couldn't smell anything when I walked close to the soap, and when I picked it up to smell it, it's not too bad. I can actually smell the lemon and rosemary, but not the peppermint. And the texture of the soap is really neat. I might actually like this bar after all!
