Red Currant & Thyme Tea Sugar soap

I wanted to make some cold process soap with sugar in it to add some extra scrubbiness.The last 2 times I went to make soap I forgot the sugar-DUH!! I finally remembered to add it and ended up adding a BUNCH of sugar..

I was worried that the soap wouldn't set since I have been reading that some soapers have had to deal with stickiness and soft soap.Fingerscrossed when I unmolded the soap wasn't sticky or tacky at all..

The red currant & thyme tea is by far my FAVORITE scent and this bar is curing and becoming my most FAVORITE bar of soap yet...

Bath Bombs..hooray! Now,if only I took baths and NOT showers..

Ryan and I made these..They are strawberry scented with a tad of pink coloring.They are HUGE and we used some almond oil.Since I dont take baths(I take showers)Ryan is the lucky user of all of them.He is an excellent guinea pig to my many trials and errors.He gives me excellent feedback from how they smell,feel and packaged.

The next thing that he wants to work on is lip balm..stay tuned..
