Rose Clay & Lemongrass essential oil

And once again French Rose Clay :-) With lemongrass essential oil this time.

First time I tried salted water for the lye solution. Was interesting :-) My feeling is that it made soap harder (even when I used approximately one tea spoon per 2 kilo of oils. But (as Jen @
Jenora Soaps said) the thin trace phase staid foooooorever... :-) 

Shea Butter + French Rose Clay

The same oil blend as in the previous soap (with 40% of Shea butter in the recipe). Love its leather and smoothness :-) And the scent -- mmmmm! Litsea Cubeba is one of my personal favorite essential oils.
