Have been wanting to get around to this for awhile - especially since I started making the hand rolled Olive Oil soaps.
Thinking of the best way to present and package the soaps, I wanted to keep it in the 'rustic' theme - the soaps are not perfectly round or even, so I didn't think the packaging should be ultra 'glam' either.
Muslin..... how simple it that?!
It also means the soaps can continue to air out and customers can easily smell the fragrances as well.
Thanks goodness that muslin is really cheap to buy - the only fun is cutting out all the squares!!!
Still curing are the Orange and Sandalwood soaps and a second batch of the Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and Lime soaps.
I''ve been playing with the recipe as well and have also done up a batch using a portion of coconut oil in with the olive. That batch is another Lavender and Geranium too. Just rolled them today in lavender flowers - can't wait till I can start trying them all!
