On the Curing Rack: Zesty Ginger and Cedarwood Sage

I have two new soaps to show you! The first one I am calling Zesty Ginger. The fragrance is described as sharp, untamed lemon with a splash of fresh orange and a squeeze of grapefruit, sprinkled with some dewy green notes, a whisper of white rose and finishing off with wild ginger, soft musk, and white oak. End result: Zesty Ginger!!

The second soap I made this week is a Cedarwood Sage Beer Soap. Basically, I re-created one of the salt bars that I tested and loved, using my regular beer recipe (no salt!). It’s colored and scented with completely natural ingredients. I wanted to do a fun design, and hadn’t done a hanger swirl in a long time, however, I was a little afraid that the beer would speed up trace a little too fast for that. I got my hanger ready, just in case, and started pouring the different colors of soap in layers.

Here’s a video of the cutting process:

The soap has darkened just a bit, and is no longer the super creamy white that it started out. That’s fine with me. It’s a rustic soap with a rustic scent, so the tan blends perfectly.

  1. Hi Amy, They are lovely soaps, the fragrances sound so inviting and they are really pretty. I particularly like the cedarwood sage for it’s wonderful natural colours and rustic look and know it would smell just perfect for the look, x Linda
