We have a beautiful Pinot Grigio scent in our possession and have combined this with an equally gorgeous jasmine.
The end result is a 3.5-pound batch of soap that is entering its gel state.
Interestingly enough, this is not an overly floral or overly wine scent. The combination of the two fragrances appears to have a sweet, fun and flirty note that we'll describe later once this log has gone through cure.
Waiting to become a batch of soap is our latest essential oil combination of pink grapefruit, lemongrass, rosemary and a tiny bit of litsea cubeba for a very fresh, energizing combination. The trick will be to see how this survives gel, once we get the batch made. I do not want the heat from the gel to burn off particularly the pink grapefruit EO. It will still be an energetic blend even if we lose the grapefruit, but we just don't want to lose the grapefruit.
Look for more soaps to be included online within a week, starting with Patchouli Mint and ending with a gorgeous Olive Leaf blend, pictured, that could be called That's Amore!Suggestions for names are always welcome!
