Water Lily Handmade Artisan Silk Soap

I've had this fragrance oil for a month or so and I hadn't decided yet what to do with it.. I had initially thought I'd do a soap based more on it's aquatic side of the fragrance but the floral blend in it is so lovely that I had to include that.

So, I decided to do both! On a base of sea green, blending the concept of both the water and the leaves, lays soft white, pink and yellow petals.. all raised up to see the sky! I top the tops on these soaps, I went crazy with the peaks.

The fragrance is a wonderful blend of fresh aquatics with a soft floral - its clean and fresh, light and yet lingering.  I think it's possibly one of my top 5 fragrances I've used this year.  And a definite keeper.

I used my usual blend of oils for this - sweet almond, golden olive and lots of cocoa butter; I didn't put in Avocado with this as I had just run out so I upped the Cocoa Butter a little; I can honestly say that its a beauty to use on your skin and the scent lingers just wonderfully well.

So, I present you... Water Lily...

These will be fully cured by early September - I really hope you like them!

    Is this a palm free one? I've been making a lot of palm free soap lately.

    Michelle - it does have Palm (sustainable source) and coconut also.. oh and castor too - I like what each ingredient brings to the soap alongside the other oils (SAO, OO, CB & Avocado etc)
