Q&A with akpharvey@yahoo.com

Damsel asked:
Looks delish! What fragrance did you use? Have you tried them?
akpharvey@yahoo.com answered:
I used a fragrance from Majestic Mountain Sage called Pixie Dust. It's sort of outdoorsy, fresh and green smelling. Like shampoo should smell! I did try it. It really is luxurious feeling. Lot's of rich, creamy lather and leaves my hair feeling great. I just LOVE making my own soap.
Susy asked:
Hi! those bars look great. Did you made them as a solid soap with cold process? Really nice! I can imagine the fragrance mmmm good!
akpharvey@yahoo.com answered:
Yes, cold process. I adapted a recipe from David Fisher's blog on About.com , Soap making.
