Soaping adventures

Before things came really unstuck, I got a bunch of new soaps made; I've been having fun with unscented varieties (oatmeal-honey; straight goatmilk), using herbs from the garden (eucalyptus, rosemary-lemongrass), local goatmilk (Idaho peppermint) and infused oils from the woods (evergreen).  I made an anniversary soap for friends to remind them of a favorite vacation they took to Corsica... that scent will go in the repertoire, I think.  I have more to make, re-stocking to do, and hope to get back to some of that next week.  I also hope to get some photos taken and post..... some of the swirls came out really nice, even if I do say so myself!
