I have what seems like a never ending collection of moulds which i was happy to use for my own soaping fetish, however since i started selling i find it difficult trying to price up all the different sizes of soaps i make!!
A few weeks back i acquired two 10" long moulds. I made two batches of soap in them with each slice measuring 2.5"x3.25"x1". I was still unsure on the size so i decided to make a few more batches with the soap slice height of 2.25" instead of 2.5". I preferred this shorter height as the soap bar looked less chunky and square, and so this is my new bar size 2.25"x3.25"x1....STANDARDISED!!
I made the following soaps in my standard mould
Country Chamomile Soap
I love the colour of this soap and also the chamomile and heather flowers sprinkled on top. I added chamomile powder at trace, which i regret since the soap smells really earthy and it basically kills off any of the vanilla and lemon essential oils i added!!!!
Rustic Rose Soap
Pink clay is added and rose petals scattered on top to give a floral feminine appearance. I added my usual palmarosa and geranium and bergamont essential oils, however i also decided to add vetiver which i added at 20% and the outcome was a really woody floral scent.
To this soap I added carrot powder and orange peel at trace. I also decided to add vetiver to this soap, along with the usual orange and Mandarin. The vetiver really overtakes any citrus smell but i love the orange specks of the peel and carrot powder coming through.
