Candles and Soap

I had a lovely time this morning, making candles and soap. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so you’ll just have to believe me!

I have never made soap before, and I had fun sniffing my way through all the possible scents to add. I picked sandalwood in the end. I really love the smell of sandalwood – it reminds me of gifts from my grandmother when she came back from trips to India. I then added colour. I tried to make it orange, but I didn’t put in enough of either the red or the yellow colouring, and I managed to make it a pale pink.

I decided when I made my candles, to leave them white.
