New from old(er)

Lots of blowing snow today.  Instead of driving the highway into Wasilla to work, I preferred to live another day.  Staying home and will make up the day later.

An update on the carrot soaps I made a few weeks ago.  All INCREDIBLE soap!  So luscious on the skin.  But… batch three had lather just a bit more yellow than I wanted.  (batch three below)carrot 3

So, even though I loved the striking look of this soap, I decided to rebatch it.  Rebatching soap involves shredding or grating it and melting down to add more ingredients or use in another soap.  Since I wanted to tone down the yellow, I added the shredded soap to a new batch of luxurious plain soap.  Then the whole shebang sat in the crockpot to soften and meld together.  Still very beautiful, just different.  Annatto seed and carrots are what give it this beautiful color.  I like it better now!
