Yes, that's right, below you see chocolate swirled soap just coming out of my wooden soap mold (made specially by a friend). Cocoa butter and cocoa powder were added to my normal recipe, resulting in a lightly scented homemade soap reminiscent of marbled fudge. Not quite edible, though!
This hand-cut chocolate swirl soap has been curing for 4 weeks on drying racks.
Citrus Patchouli is another new soap for February, a woodsy herbal scent with a fresh twist. I have been attempting to market my soap in local shops this winter, and I'm hoping this outdoorsy, gender-neutral variety will be a popular choice. I plan to continue developing a line of scents over the next several months.
Both of these soaps are now listed on the Pleasant View Soaps site. If you would like to be included in updates to this page whenever I add new products from now on, feel free to add your name to the email list below. Thanks for your interest in this new little venture of mine!
