Coffee, Tea and Peace

The latest batch of Kitchen Thyme soap came out well. There's just a slight amount of free oil on the surface, but it didn't seize like all the previous batches. The culprit seems to be the thyme oil, as this time, I greatly decreased the amount, and tried some new essential oils. I made some mega-strong coffee for the liquid portion, but the coffee smell gets lost underneath the essential oils. It's a nice looking bar, and different from all the others, which I like. I'm a happy camper! I may think about changing its' name, though. Any thoughts?

Jennie's post yesterday reminded me of the upcoming Seagrove Potters for Peace. Last year, I was in the process of creating my green tea soap, and didn't have it in time for this event. This year, I plan to join in. Greg Mortenson's book, Three Cups of Tea, is a good read. And he's figured out how to make a difference in many lives. Hmmm, it just occurred to me that I can do something, not only locally, but on my etsy site. I'll donate online Green Tea Facial Bar profits to this as well. The thought of that makes me happy! Wishing you a happy day!

I am glad you are participating Laurie!! My kiln has gone kaplooey on me so my post must be delayed. Not sure what is wrong, tried one potters suggestion and it didn't work. BOO, maybe it is just too hot for it!
