Fall In Love

 
Another Valentine soap made with Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Castor Oil, Mango Butter and Shea Butter.  I did not use Palm Oil for this batch.
 
 
The heart embeds were from my previous post "Love Collection."
 
 
I decided to drop swirl both red and blue colors into a base but changed my mind at the last minute.   I quickly made an improvised divider using some newsletter paper and taped the paper in the middle of the mold.
 
 
I was quite happy with how the paper divider separated the colors.
 
 
Embedded the hearts which moved the red batter a little bit.
 
 
Sprinkled blue jojoba beads to red batter and red jojoba beads to the blue batter.
 
 
Poured the leftover red and blue batter into my oval mold and swirled it with a chopstick.
 
 
Topped the oval soap with red jojoba beads and a golden melt and pour baby.
 
 
Gave this to a friend who is having a baby soon.
 
 
Waited four days before removing from the mold and it came out nicely, no cracks or any part of the soap sticking on the sides of the mold which sometimes happened.
 
 
Some of the bars got a nice silhouette of the embedded hearts while others are more abstract.
 
 
 Hope you enjoy the making of Fall In Love.
 
Thank you very much for stopping by.
