Lemon Meringue Pie Soap

I thought I'd pop in here while it's still this morning to share with you the cold process soap I just made!  This is only my third batch of cold process soap, my first one was the same recipe, it over heated and looks ugly!  

I recently bought a 2 pound mold that doesn't need to be lined for experimental purposes and I love it.  The soap comes out nicely and it's easy to take apart and clean and...  I can see what's going on in there.

I'm experimenting with my own cold process recipe that works well for me and it's coming along.  For coloring in this soap I used Brambleberry's Fizzy Lemonade colorant, it's supposed to glow under black light - my kids will LOVE that.  I also used Brambleberry's Titanium Dioxide for the white and the fragrance oil is also from Brambleberry called Lemon Verbena.  Right now it kind of looks like Lemon Meringue Pie, but it also reminds me of wet scrambled eggs...  I hope tomorrow when I un-mold it and slice it, it's still pretty!

Here's a better side view of what's happening in the soap mold.  I tried the "hangar swirl" technique, you can see where my hanger disturbed the white.  I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's cut and then the next step in the process is the cure time - 6 weeks to wait before we can use it!

It's just after 11 AM here in Arizona and I think it might be time for me to get out of my p.j.'s and go get ready for the day...  

I do have a question for you today!  What do you think I should name my soap?
Lemon Meringue Pie or something else?  Leave and comment and let me know!

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

I sure hope you post a picture of this cp soap after you cut it! It looks great. Ok, how about "Lemon Breeze" for a name? Or "Citrus Breeze"?
fun! Anna

Thanks Anna! I can't wait to cut it tomorrow and see what it really looks like!! I think Lemon Breeze would be a great name! Maybe I should have a contest, who ever names it gets a bar? =)

Just like a dog/cat, wait to 'see' it's 'personality' before naming, tho I like PIE! LOL! I use Brambleberry for supplies as well.
