Soap Challenge Week 4 - Beer Soap
I skipped week 3 of the challenge because I haven't made the piping soap yet, but I will soon. So I moved on to week 4 in the challenge - Alcohol soap. I am no stranger to making soaps with alcohols, so again this is not a challenge for me, but still fun. I've made soap with beer, wine, scotch, and Meyer's rum. I cook the alcohol off ahead of time to prevent the volcano effect when lye is added.
I made my Guinness Spice beer soap for men - acutally this is the shaving soap version that goes with the beer soap. It is by far one of my best selling soaps. I make it with essential oils, and it has a spicy licorice scent - very manly fragrance. It has a bottle of guinness in it and some clay to make it slick for shaving. I always color my Guinness soap in shades of black/grey.
Each soap came out with a slightly different design. Here are pictures:
I'll post the next challenge tomorrow- Custom Scent Blends
