I made a batch of beer soap some time ago and was very put off by the smell. I decided to give it another try since I had purchased some alcoholic beverage fragrance oils. I helped myself to one of my husband's beers and there was no turning back. Unfortunately, despite adding a considerable amount of Oatmeal Stout fragrance oil, I still only smell the icky smell I remember from my first attempt. I will stick it out and see if perhaps it will become more pleasant as it cures. Here are pictures of today's soaps.
It's been quite a while since I made soap, so, today was the day. Unfortunately, things didn't turn out the way I planned. I wanted to try to delay the browning effect of fragrances which contain vanilla, so, used a vanilla color stabilizer for the Chocolate Covered Strawberry loaf. For some unexplained reason, when I added the fragrance/stabilizer to the soap, it turned bright yellow. I wanted it to be creamy white.
