The January Challenge Soap didn't work out. Well, the soap is fine, it smells great and lathers perfectly. You just can't really see the swirl. I didn't enter that one. I scented it with a combination of French Vanilla fragrance oil and Lavender essential oil.
February challenge came, and I was happy with my soap for this one. I was all ready to upload my photo for the contest, and thought I'd get it done. Then I got the email saying the voting had started. Oops! At least it's pretty! I used one of the scents remaining from my candle days (I knew there was a reason I made sure those fragrance oils were also skin safe!!) called Casaba Mist. It's kind of a light floral with a hint of melon in the background. It must have a little vanilla in it too, because it discolored to a light tan (I didn't put any fragrance in the swirl part, so that I could work with the soap and not worry about color issues)
