I made soap.

There's a popular, well-known "organic"  grocery store chain where I don't shop anymore, because the owner is a conservative homophobe who scoffs at "the hippies" for spending money at his establishments. Well, NOT THIS HIPPIE.

Still, I used to frequent them for scented glycerin soap. I was able to find a nice essential oil which smelled similar, so I figured I'd make my own.

The top ones are made with the mold that came with the kit. I tried doing a layered, two-tone soap in greens. I used a silicon heart shape mold for the white glycerin soap with the blue swirl pattern. I really like how it came out!

This is fun! I'll probably do more of it! Why throw down good money at Lush, when I can make my own custom bath products? I'm already making my deoderant (recipe here) and it's more complicated than soap.

Is making glycerin soap easy? I've always wanted to try it, but didn't know if I could.

Cool. Thanks for the tip -- as if I needed another reason to make a stop at Michaels.

Soap has been on my list of Things To Try Making forever and these make it look really tempting.

Oooh, go you!

I tried to make soap but my results were—not ideal. A few bars turned out okay. What did you use to make it green?

Rogan: And I'll bet it smells and feels great! (Unlike certain other past soaps.)

Sneak: I made a little of my own soap in the past, and it was a lot of fun! @_@ Maybe I could try again, with the Michael's stuff you mentioned! *crafty ideas*

Rogan: And oh man, homemade deodorant would be nice. Might give that a shot too!
