    Spicy Orange - Glasshouse

    I have been making a new range of 100% natural goat's milk soap. I have posted a couple of pics on my facebook fan page but for most of them I am waiting until it dries out a bit and the colour comes out a bit more.
    This one looked so good as a log though so I took a photo of it! It is Spicy Orange and has sweet orange essential oil and coloured with red clay, cayenne pepper and cinnamon. It smells soooooo good! Laughing

    I don't know if the pic will turn out pale

    Thank you! It smells a bit like a cake...mmm... I just have to wait a few weeks until the colour inside develops a bit better like the top has. Can't wait!

    no wonder you couldn't wait! it's gorgeous! so you've done that by globbing (for want of a nicer word!) the different coloured portions into the mould? It's a lovely effect.

    Thanks! Yes just random blopping I think is the technical term lol! I divided the mixture up into 3 lots but with a bigger third mixed with cinnamon and then just spooned them out and randomly blobbed them throughout the mould. It was very tempted to swirl them but I was strong and resisted. So each piece is unique just like a cabbage patch doll Razz
