What advice would you give someone starting this project? read ALL safety requirements BEFORE beginning any soaping project. Make sure you understand what they mean, what safety equipment is needed and be sure to USE it. It is for your own good as well as your family members. It is VERY important to read all safety guidelines on using lye because it can be deadly.

Not really, I just used melt & pour for these. I usually go all out and make the lye soap but I was lazy today. You can get melt & pour soap, fragrance oils (careful not to get candle fragrance) and molds at hobby stores. Melt it, add the color, fragrance (1 or 2 oz) pour into mold(s) and wait. You can go online and watch videos on how to do this. That is where I learned most of it.

Very pretty. The soap even looks fragrant! Is it gentle on your skin?

Thanks !!! Since this is melt and pour and not my usual lye soap I'm HOPING it is gentle on my skin. This project was mostly an experiment with the tea leaves as an exfoliator. Not sure I will do it again since when the soap is wet it turns brown from the tea leaves, I didn't include the directions because I wouldn't recommend it. Other herbs are suitable like lavender buds, basil leaves, oatmeal (ground coarsely).

LOL, nearly everyone on facebook said it looked edible or some type of food. I didn't think of that when I made it. LOL
