Lavender Orange-Mmmmm

Lavender Orange before gel-such a lovely shade of pale orange

 Lavender Orange after gel-not quite as orange,but still very pretty.

Mmmmm, the orange is much more subtle now and the lavender is toned down-smells so nice.

Well, as expected the orange is even lighter after gel. Like most of us, I wish color was more dependable,but it is what it is. This was a clay, and so it's to be expected really. Still I think they are beautiful and they smell very nice so that's what counts.

Beautiful! I've never thought to mix Lavender and Orange scents together but it sounds wonderful!
I love your rectangle soaps, but those new soaps
look beautiful also :)

Hi Ayu,hope you are well, so good to have you stop by. I actually came across Lavender Orange at the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Conference and really liked it, so I came home and worked out a blend. I am loving it-every time I go into the kitchen I have to pick up the end piece to smell- delicious!

Beautifu!! What clay do you use for orange? I use annattoo powder and it comes out a nice deep earthy orange, but it does fade somewhat with time, especially in sunlight.... looking gorgeous friend!! xo Jen

It's absolutely gorgeous! It's a nice soft blend of orange with a small pop of lavender on the top. =)
