The PMS batch smells *so* good. I used bois de rose, grapefruit, clary sage, ylang ylang and geranium essential oils…and did a purple swirly thing. Now…if I can just get it out of the mold….I changed my base recipe so that it would have a higher superfat content, and thus be more conditioning to the skin…but it makes the soap so soft at the beginning of the cure cycle that it’s really difficult to get it out of the mold. Must figure out a compromise.
But now…I’m in the middle of Perdito Street Station…and if I don’t get back to that book, my head could explode. If you haven’t read it…you must, so we can discuss it at length.
