Cabernet Grape Soap
If you are a soapmaker, or know a soapmaker personally, you know how we can sometimes get a little bored with making the same soap over & over. Well, I'm one who comes up with crazy ideas all the time. This time I was sitting around drinking some delicious grape juice and thought what a great soap this will make. I know I wouldn't mind taking a shower with it. But what would I do about fragrance.
I know, I had received a 1 oz. sample of Cabernet F/O from Lebermuth that smells like grapes. I've been waiting for the opportunity to use it and now was the time. I didn't use any colorants because I wanted to see what color the juice would give. The result is a nice tan shade of brown. I guess mainly because of the sugar content of the grape juice. It's been two weeks now and the fragrance is actually reminiscent of fruity grape wine. Can't wait to test it out.
