Making Up For Lost Time - Making Soap!

It's been busy in A Breath Of French Air's soap kitchen this month! I've been cranking out the soap, so I thought I would share with you some of my new products.
Eucalyptus Charcoal soap - It's invigorating, fresh, and wonderful for the skin! Charcoal draws out toxins in the skin, so it's perfect to use as a facial soap! I divided up the batch and used gold mica for the swirls (below) and gold stars on top. The stars are skin safe and wash off after the first use. I think they both turned out awesome!

The top two are my Lemongrass soaps. I used the hot process method, so they are a little more rustic looking. They have a greenish tinge since I use French Green Clay, which contains actual decomposed plant material, making French Green Clay very nutritious for the skin. Calendula petals are on top to add some prettiness!
The last soap I am going to show is my famous Pumpkin Lavender soap. It's all the rave, and hard to keep in stock! The scent sounds weird, but it's amazing together!

I have many more to show, so I will be back with more pictures! Thanks for reading.

My, you have been busy! I am so impressed with the Eucalyptus Charcoal soap and how you used the charcoal to get a solid and dark color. And, then I saw what you did with the sprinkle and gold!!
