Rosemary Mint Soap from Scratch

One of the first batches of 2013
was Rosemary Mint.
The batter contains these oils:
Olive, Canola, Coconut and Palm.
It also contains lye and distilled water.
I added rosemary powder, rosemary essential oil,
and peppermint essential oil.
I used the in the pot swirl method like I did for the Clove Soap
 Here the batter is divided into two parts.
Both parts already have the essential oil incorporated.
The rosemary powder was aded to the part on the right.
I like to mix it in with a wire whisk.
 In this picture, the powder is partially mixed.
 Now it's time to pour the part with the rosemary powder
Into the plain part.
 This shows the difference in color between the two parts.
 Almost finished pouring.
 All the batter is now in the big pot.
Without stirring the parts together,
I poured the mixture into the molds.
 Here are the loaves after the pour.
In future posts,
I'll show you the cuts of the clove
And rosemary mint soaps.
Thanks for reading!
I hope you'll check back soon.
