Cool as a Cucumber

I finally had a chance to list one of my new soaps on my Etsy site. I call it "Cool as a Cucumber". I made it using real cucumber for its moisturizing qualities. I wanted to keep it all natural so I didn't add any color or fragrance, but it has a slight cucumber scent. When I unmolded it, it was a beautiful green color (like the inside of the cucumber) but as it cured it turned more of a yellowish color.

Cucumber is supposed to soothe sunburn so this is a definite must for my house! With my pale skin and red hair I burn almost instantly. I almost can't wait to get burnt just to see how well it works!

Welcome to my new blog! Here I plan to keep everyone up to date on my soapmaking and perhaps a few things about my life. Feel free to leave comments. I'd love to know that someone's actually reading this!
