Spring soaping

In between digging and seeding and weeding, I have gotten some more soap made, including the last batch of the original formula for the Damask rose. Until I get a few more roses back in best blooming shape, there won't be much rose oil for soap. But I'm not despairing; I found several lovely rose waxes and have some very promising test batches working. That and the white lavender (my new favorite lavender soap, at least until I get the pink lavender made!) are perfuming the house in a delectable fashion. I've got cedar fronds to infuse for cedar soap, and sweetgrass to process as well; another fragrant week ahead.
