Spicy Colors

I'm really suppose to be concentrating on year end inventories.. but that's sooo boring right now! ;) As I look around my stock on hand, I came upon a box of supplies that I'd forgotten I even had! Jasmine & Orange blossom wax, Bourbin vanilla beans, a pound of dark Amber resin.. ohhh this smells so nice... and makes such a lovely bar of soap... and assorted spices... Yes, I fess up, in addition to herbs & natural clays I do indeed use many spices to enrich , add color and add gentle exfoliation to my bars. I usually just love the results. Many times I use a combination of both herbs &/or clays along with the spices... colorful peppercorns, saffron, nutmeg, clove, paprika, curry, tumeric, ginger....

Now, after finding my surprise box, all I want to do is make soaps! :o)
