Lemongrass/Clary Sage 'Soap on a Rope'

I am really liking the 'Old World' look of this soap on a rope. Of course I had to make another one!

This one is scented with Lemongrass and Clary Sage with just a touch of Sandalwood.

I added Bramble Berry's Chrome Green and a bit of Cappuccino Mica.

This is a Bastile soap recipe, which means the Olive Oil content is over half the oils, plus I added other skin loving oils: Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Grape-seed Oil, and Sun Flower Oil. I used Goats Milk for the liquid.

I was able to take it out of the mold in 24 hrs.

I find that if Olive Oil is the main oil in my recipes I am able to stamp the soap almost right away. It also comes out of the mold easier if I put a thin layer of Glycerin on the bottom and sides of the mold. Thanks for that tip to:

 I was also able to do a bit of stamping after I took it out of the mold, but decided to wait another 24 hrs.

Spraying your soap stamp with a bit of Alcohol really helps the stamping process by alleviating the soap from sticking onto the stamp.  

Life is good!

I had 'Soaps From Home' stamp custom made by:
