Behind the Scenes: SOAP Part 2...

Cut and curing!!

We'll start with the top row from the left are Lemongrass: yellow bar with green swirl, Orange Sherbet: orange bar with white swirl, Oakmoss: solid green bar, Pure Rain: blue and white layers, Creamy Orange Coconut: solid orange bar, and last but not least, French Vanilla: solid brown bar.  The French Vanilla is actually uncolored.  The amount of vanilla used in the fragrance naturally turns the soap from a creamy color to a chocolate brown color while it's drying.  If you were to cut the bar in half, the middle would still be cream colored for about a day or so and then turn to brown.  Interesting huh?!
