Some friends from the Lolita circle and I are planning to go to Japan in the spring of 2016 (yes, we plan ahead, we need to save up!) and I just can’t wait!!!!
Another Castile soap…scented in essential oils of lemon, sage, and ginger…Again what is Castile soap? It is soap made with a formula of 100% olive oil-meaning no other oils or butters were used in the making of this soap. This soap is still so friggin soft even after 3 days in the mold! I steeped some grated lemon peel in my lye solution to give it a sunny yellow color which of course you can’t see cause I didn’t angle the soaps right duh….I sprinkled the tops with some dried calendula.
I’ll have to let this soap cure for at least 3 months-just in time for the holidays. I’m hoping it will be rock hard by then…
