Glycerin soap base, sweet almond oil, oatmeal,
lavender (lavendula augustifolia) essential oil.
When I first got into soap making, I tried making a more complicated
recipe involving adding oil and other ingredients then whisking to
mix it in. The result was supposed to be a harder "hand milled"
soap. My attempt, however, resulted in a soap that never hardened
and was light and fluffy. Since I didn't want to waste all that soap,
I experiemented by melting some glycerin base and adding some of the
soft soap to it. The result is this beautiful bar of soap that naturally
forms a white layer on the top. All the oatmeal sinks to the bottom
and the middle is a nice soft beige color. The lavender scent makes
it a wonderful indulgence.
Once I had used up the original mistake soap, I then had to re-create
the mistake in order to make more. The re-creation did harden (top
right in the picture), but the end result is the same. This soap is
included in the Guilty Pleasures because of the time involved in making
I call this one Goddess as I used the same combo (oatmeal and lavender)
when I did a soap making demo for a get-away attended by members of
my sister's group, Spiritual Goddess Gathering. Everyone in the group
loved the combo and agreed it was "fit for a Goddess" (altho
some Gods like it too!).
