Tussie Mussie Swap Winner -- Jasmine Jewel


    Date : 2000-06-21

    Suzanne Jones wooed us with her beautiful version of "Jasmine Jewel". This classic bar consisted of one type of transparent soap in the shape of a jewel embedded into another. The scent blend was a combination of rose, jasmine, lavender and gardenia. Way cool, Suzanne.

    Instructions:

    The recipe for the embedded soap was made first and the resulting soap poured into heart- and flower shaped molds. The soap was allowed to harden for six hours, subsequently frozen for a half hour, and removed from the molds.

    The second recipe of transparent soap was made and poured into drawer dividers. On pouring, the previously made flower and heart soaps were submerged in the drawer dividers. The soap was allowed to harden and removed from the molds within a day.

    Notes & Comments:

    Susan's Embedded Soap Recipe was based on Susan Cavitch's "Silky See-through Soap"
