Turmeric soap

You didn't really think there was only going to be one batch of soap, did you?

Turmeric swirl soap

I made this late Friday night, and cut it into bars Sunday morning.  This is a two-pound loaf of olive oil, coconut oil, and lard soap.  I divided the batch before I poured it into the mold, and mixed a teaspoon of turmeric into about a third of the batter.  I poured the white first, then the orange, and gave it a swirl with a chopstick.  The white portion of the batter is scented with rosemary and mint essential oils.

Oh, and also I had to get a soap mold.  Because toys are fun.

I'm very pleased with the way this came out.
