#23 Roses and Champagne

Roses and Champagne, take 2.

The first batch, granted it was only 4 roses, went really quick.

The second batch has not. Unfortunately with this batch, they aren’t as pretty as I would I have liked. It’s a hanger swirl, and though it does normally look pretty, the Red Lab Color I used from Bramble Berry bled into the white parts of the soap. It might be good for swirls, where the bleeding would be ok, but for anything needing more crisp lines like this, it wasnt such a great idea. However, it’s what I had on hand at the time. I’ve been looking for a red mica, but when I have money, the red happens to be a bit more pricey than I would want to pay.

However, don’t let the ugly soap fool you, the roses and champagne fragrance smells wonderful!

This is a perfect example of how fragrance oils can keep the price down. Whereas, Satyr’s Emerald Dreaming is $9 a bar because of the essential oils, especially Wormwood, this is entirely made from fragrance oils, ‘cept the dash of Rosemary I added. For instance, the Roses and Champagne bars are $5 each, and the roses are $3 each.
