Please Pass the Salt & Pepper
I made my required Love You Lavender CP the other day. It's nice and safe.. I swirled in some Lime because I was a little bored with it... can't help it. So then I started thinking about how much soapmaking is like my other passion- cooking.
Somehow I dreamed up Cucina Cubes. They are an extra hearty CP . In a feverish search for a savory FO, I happened upon a brand new bottle of Black Tea from Bramble Berry. It's a great fragrance. When I stirred it in, it disappeared behind the smell of the oils. I was bummed. Well, we all know that I'm a CP newbie, so this has probably happened to everyone else, but I was shocked to find that it's coming back as the soap cures! FUN!
Anyway, I dusted the cubes in sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. It might be a little funky, but I really like them. Can't wait to try them after a little garlic-chopping! It will be fun to see if they sell on Etsy.
