SUMMER'S BOUNTY

Some pictures of what I've been doing besides enjoying the extremely hot summer. These are all salt soaps! Some of them have coarse and some fine sea salt. In all of them I used full water and 75% sea salt as percentage of oils. Using low temperatures and pouring at very thin trace it was possible to get the soap even into the tiniest molds.

The lions have been coloured with betacarotene and the round ones have green clay although they look more greyish than green.

  2. Look gorgeous! I am also experimenting with salt soaps... have you found that they sweat much? My first 3 attempts sweat so much that water was dripping off them! So i lowered the water content... but you say you used full water? Let me know how they turn out! I LOVE salt soaps! xo Jen

  4. Thank you ladies! Jen, I don't know why but my salt soaps have never sweat. Could it have something to do with the different kind of salt?
