I love all things crafty! My dear friend, Corris, loves making soap and other bath products. I always love learning from her because 1. I know it’s going to be a good time and 2. the things we make are always goodies to make us feel wonderful. This workshop was NO exception!
On the Spa Menu:
* Beautifully scented roll-on perfume (aromatherapy)
* Nourishing body mask (revitalizes and moisturizes)
* Savon de Marseille soap (heals and detoxifies)
Kahena got put the soap into the kettle. We used a nice product called Melt-n-Pour. It is a simple way to make your own soaps. You simply melt the soap, add your scents/colors/etc. and pour it into a mold. It will eventually harden and make great soaps!
We are getting the ingredients ready! Looks like the first layer is already in our mold. We used Jasmine Tea to make an earthy crust on the soap. Corris used a loaf pan for the soap. This is my favorite way to do soap. I love taking it out of the loaf and then slicing it. I just love the look of it!
Ahh…an added bonus! Rosie brought these sweet cupcakes. They were yummy!
Eileen and Kahena were getting the oils ready for the next step of our creations.
I am adding the clay. Corris knows this is one of my FAVORITE things to add to soap. I love the color, texture and smell-very organic!
Kahena, Eileen and I worked as a team to mix together the ingredients.
Jeannine was ready to cut the soap with Corris’ fancy cutter. Yes, I loved that cutter so much that I had to have one! (it’s in my crafty closet)
Corris (our awesome teacher) and NeNe pose with the delicious soaps!
Here is a shot of the bath goodness that we created! YES–after everyone left yesterday, I immediately jumped into the shower JUST to use that soap!
