I have to squeal a bit over this soap because it turned out too cute! And exactly how I’d hoped.
For this one I took another tutorial the Bramble Berry had done and added my own little twist to it. Here’s Bramble Berry’s tutorial: Vertical Sandalwood with a Twist.
I though it would be really cute to try and make a “pumpkin” shape in the vertical mold. First I made the embeds I’d need: the stem and the leaf (I poured it in a PVC tube and sliced it in half). Once I had those I then made my soap. I used a blend of vanilla EO, cinnamon EO, and BB’s Pumpkin Spice. Oh man does this smell good! I also used goat’s milk in the soap. I split the batch in two and added orange mica to one and left the other natural. I figured the vanilla and cinnamon would darken it up and I’d get a good contrast. I also added a little cinnamon to that half.
Poured them in he mold and then twisted the middle divider to get the circle. From there I embedded the stem and leave. It’s it just too cute!!!
HINT: So, getting the sides off the soap are a pain. And with my still injured finger I was having a hard time so I tired something new. I put my PVC molds in the oven and tried it with this and oh my word the sides practically fell off! I stuck it in the over for 7-8min at 200. Try it!
