A little bit of soap

As promised the piccies of the latest soap..  I am really pleased how they turned out.. There is a bit more info about them over on my shop blog..the link is at the bottom of this post.
This one is Comfrey/Nettle, it is looking a bit icy on top, it stuck to the mold so had to toss it in the freezer for an hour.

This one is Coconut and Lemon-grass.. It was an in pot swirl, I am happy with the result, I didn't cut the whole block as it is still a bit wet but it smells soooooooooo good.
I had an appointment with the Doctor today, and while I was waiting I picked up a magazine and browsed the articles.. one caught my eye it was '30 tips from cosmetic experts' one of the first was 'Never use soap on your face'.. I had a wee chuckle because it went on to say use one of these products.. all chemical bars or soap free yet chemical cleansers in a tube.. all containing stuff I doubt I could pronounce, funny thing is since I have been washing my face with real soap, made with real vegetable and nut oils, with nothing out of a test tube added, my skin has never felt better... don't use soap.. well Mister Cosmetic specialist.. you need to re write your article and announce Never use chemicals on your face!

I agree! Mainstream society seems to rely so much on expert opinion, yet I find myself questioning 'the experts' all the time. Lovely soaps. I starting making soaps as well and I am looking forward to doing some experimenting.

I'm so glad you are doing up and around again. I swear the coconut lemon grass soap looks good enough to eat.
