Oatmeal Milk and Honey and Bath Truffles

I made 8 pounds of Oatmeal, Milk & Honey soap this weekend. It's one of my all time favorites. 

I also made some bath truffles with a beachy fragrance topped off with melt and pour shells. I think I may have made a mistake though - I used natural cocoa butter and the fragrance of the cocoa butter is overpowering the beach fragrance. I think I will use the deodorized cocoa butter next time. Has anyone ever had this issue?


  1. I have never tried to make soap, or candles. I do have a recipe for a homemade scrub that I really want to try and make, with rose petals from my garden. I love the seashell soaps.

    1. Thank you Melissa! Scrub with rose petals sounds great. I haven't attempted to make scrubs yet, but definitely on my list as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. Wow, 8 lbs of soap! That's a lot of soaping going on. ;)

    Your bath truffles are adorable! I love the little embellishments on the top. I've only used cocoa butter in my body butter, and I left it unscented because I really wanted that lovely cocoa smell to come through.

  3. Lisa, I'm all caught up with you now. And on my website tonight I've included all of your links in the blogpost. I can't even tell you how happy I am with my soap order! (Well, I guess I just did.)
