Black Cold Process Soap Test

I always think that black soaps are stunning. They are bold and demand to be noticed. My biggest challenge was deciding on a fragrance that I wanted in a black soap. I finally decided on Eastern Amber. This fabulous scent seems even more musky and sensual in a black soap. Come with me to the kitchen to make this enticing soap!

Note: This soap will color a wash cloth. I was able to rinse the color out at the sink but don’t use your favorite wash cloth with this soap.
