Rose Soap

Welcome! Today I am sharing a bit about my Rose Soap. This one is fun because it uses a natural colorant to give it its pretty pinkish/orange hue. The secret? Paprika! The spice doesn't affect the texture of the soap or cause irritation, it merely lends its coloring to the soap. How fun is that?

 I love the craggy edge of this rustic looking soap. This batch was made using the "hot process" method, and though that term refers to how the soap was made, it also seems aptly named because the final bar does have a look which reminds me of hardened lava.

And here it is all packaged up and ready for giving. Enjoy!

p.s. Check back tomorrow for the final soap post of the week. :)
