Short piles, to be sure- yet piles they are. I have given a lot of lovely soap to friends, family & others- but I am still running out of storage space! I don't want to go so far as to list them on Etsy, because I don't have them packaged nicely yet. I would live to see them go to new homes though, spreading joy & suds. The thought occurred to me today to list availability here, so why not. I'm going with about $4.00 per bar, or about a dollar per ounce weight wise. now four ounces may not seem like a lot to you, but it's a good size. Those of you who have scales for cooking, go weigh that bar of Ivory, or whatever.
For shipping I'm going with the small priority mail box, I think it's $4.95. I don't know y et how many I can fit in there though!
I'll post the short list below- comment if you have any interest & we'll put something together. Most bars are around 4 ounces, some are less or more.

*These are Light Expressions custom scent blends.
All soaps are made with vegetable oils and butters, no animal or animal derived ingredients (such as milk). Fragrance oils used are vegan also according to suppliers & are not currently tested on animals as far as I have been able to ascertain though they most likely were at one time (like most things). Most fragrance oils used are without parabens, though I'm researching a few now in an effort to create paraben free products.
Discoloration has progressed nicely, but I need to redo it.
I attempted to do three layers then swirl, with the layer that I knew would discolor in the middle. When I put the top layer on though, it pushed the middle layer just everywhere. Chalk that up to inexperience. Next project I'm going to put the discoloration layer on the bottom, reserve a little for swirl designs on top, and the regular will be the 2nd layer- then swirl. That will be the real test of how much the discoloration will or won't bleed into the other part of the soap. It DOES smell great- at least I know that my fragrance blend is a winner!
