Naturally feeling Zesty!!

1 Aug

Ahhh… more rain! Don’t you just need something to give you that summer feeling! Well fear not, here in Kilkenny I have created summer in a soap. Of course I  used Organic rapeseed oil from Ireland as the base and infused it with some Lemon essential oil and some Lime essential oil, its a citrusy ‘wake me up’ soap with a fantastic creamy lather. It has a good kick to it! I used some ground dried spinach to give a nice green colour.  I prefer to use what nature gives us rather than concocting colours and in Labs.  I have left the batch of soap to cure and it should be ready in 4-6 weeks. I am looking forward to experimenting with the wild blackberries. Last year I made 50 pounds of jam from around the ditches on the farm, this year I am going to use some of them to colour and scent soap, should be interesting!!!
