Tranquil



"Tranquil" (and yes, that's a bit of silver mica you see on top)

Just cut (and Oops! not cleaned up yet) I was a bit worried the blue might bleed upon use- I tested a bar and no bleeding...Yay!

An eo blend of Rosemary,Peppermint, Cedar and Lemon (actually a re-make of a blend I did a week or so ago in yellow and white, because I thought blue was more fitting). Tranquil is my "dupe" of a  popular Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief scent-it's not spot on or anything but definitely resembles the fresh aroma and will remind you of it for sure.

It is absolutely stunning! The blue definitely does give a tranquil feeling when looking at it.

If you could only see my huge grin right now. Thank you so much for the gift of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic and Cosmetic Guild Conference-it was truly inspired to try some new things! Thank you!

Is it a Ultramarine Blue? Such a beautiful color!! I love the name it matches so well.

@Jessie, - Yes,it is an Ultramarine blue-I was a bit worried and thought I might have too much because it was soooo blue-but I tested and it doesn't bleed (a huge relief.) I normally work with clays that are much more muted,so I think such color was kind of a shock.

Thank you!

Right on! Among all the natural color, this is almost the number one I'd like. The color even turns more vivid with a transparent hue after the soap is cured :)

@ Jessie,I do love Ultramarines they are so easy to work with. Oh! won't it be nice if it becomes a bit more transparent-that's very cool.
