Today is Sunday Studio  and I'm linking this post to Sunday Studio with Rebecca Ersfeld 

I made some natural soap, the following pictures are of Sea Salt Spa bars:

Here are all the ingredients ready to start the process.

Using the stick blender to incorporate all the ingredients (all natural of course)

Here the sea salt is added.  The scent is lemon verbena which is a combination of lime, grapefruit, lemon and litsea cubeba essential oils.

In to the mold it goes.

After 24 hours the bars are cut and unmolded.  After that they need to be "cured" which means "being exposed to the air" for at least 4 weeks.  Salt bars are commonly used at spas due to their high content of minerals (fron the sea salt) which is wonderfuel for your skin.  Some people ask if they don't dry your skin due the salt, but they don't.
The lather is lotion like and leave your sking soft and refreshed.

These aren't salt bars, just some facial soap, the purple is ylang-ylang and patchouli and the green/pink pumice and grapefruit (wonderful for dry heels).

That's all I have for today.  Hope you can join Rebecca for Sunday Studio.
