Orange & Frankincense Soap
I wanted to create a 'Marmalade' type soap, sweet, citrusy and bright.
This is a cocoa butter based soap with sweet orange, Mandarin, petuli and frankincense essential oils. I added 1 tsp carrot powder for colour but i think next time i would definitely add a lot more for a more vibrant colour. I have also added a little orange peel for exfoliation and dried orange slices purely for decorative effect.
I had an intention of adding brown sugar to the recipe which would probably give a caramelyness to the colour but i forgot to prepare the syrup and when i realised i had already poured (gutted!!!!)
Goats Milk, Lemongrass & CalendulaGoats milk soaps really are super for skin and i love using them especially for my face in the winter months. During winter i find it somewhat more difficult to wake up at 5.30am so i thought i would scent it with lemongrass and litsea cuba, a real zingy fragrance which will hopefully help me wake up. I have added calendula petals throughout the mixture and also topped the soap with it.
