Handmade Facial Round Soap

Today I have an all natural face/body bar.
It is made with hemp oil, plantain powder, activated charcoal and a dash of eucalyptus essential oil,
The liquid used is sleepytime tea. I steeped it for 30 minutes before using half of it to desolve the lye.
The smell of the tea comes through in the soap and smells delicious.

Here is a pic. They need to be cleaned up. You can see the seam bump, but it was too soft to do anything at the time.

Olive Swirl Handmade Soap

Olive swirls 
Made with Lard, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Castor oil
Canola oil, Shea butter, Cocoa butter
And a pinch of silk.

It is scented with Olive Branch 
Mica used was from Rustic Essentuals
Bordeaux and Enchanted Forest
Of course there was some titanium dioxide used for the white.
I used the mold from Essential Depot
And filled it right to the top giving this plain nice big bar of soap.

Below is a pic or two of it still in the mold

It's wet there

Unmolded....need to get a plain table cloth.
This one is too busy to take pics against.

This is where I will be posting pictures and descriptions of soaps and whatever handmade item I may make.
I am on a tablet so this is going to be a pain in the a$$ till I get used to it.
Welcome to my journey on keeping my bipolar depression at bay.
A good hobbie always helps.
