Ama's Original Soaps

Ama truly ventures. She had never tackled anything like Candles or Soaps before. After becoming comfortable with Candles and Tarts, it was time to try soaps! Yes, again in a variety of shapes, sizes and aromas. All created In A Good Way for you!

The soap making adventure started with a kit. Better to start with an inexpensive kit, which contains the majority of necessary parts, than to dive head first into a major endeavor! Well, the first attempt was less than stellar. The mold that came with the kit was really stiff and I didn't "grease" it like I should have. Admittedly, they're usable, but not what I wanted.

The second session went much more smoothly. I chose the tools and accessories while LaughingBear had put together some of the more common tools. We now have a tote filled with soap making paraphernalia!

Hopefully soon, we'll have an inventory of which we're proud and will get them posted here. Stay tuned!

Time to add some more detail! We've learned that there are a variety of “base” soaps. There are also a variety of ways to add color to the base. Then, of course, there are the essential oils that make everything smell yummy! On top of that, there are exfoliants (scrubs) that can be added! Whew!

The Base Soaps

This is where it all starts. Each soap has unique characteristics. Some are more luxurious than others, some more moisturizing, some more rugged. Some are a little more costly as well.

The Colors

Hmmm, should I list them all? I guess I should but the tough part will be getting the pictures that accurately show what they look like! The really tricky part will be showing what each color looks like in each type of soap. For now, that will have to wait. We just don't have all the soaps!
