I have been making small batches of soap.  I wanted to make simple soaps, yet mix fragrances and colors.  The last two I made are included in photos here. 

The fragrance of the first is mostly peppermint with a hint of baby powder to soften the scent and a little almond for softening and sweetening the scent.  It is a real nice fragrance.  The colors are yellow, orange, and scarlet with titanium dioxide lightening the colors.

The second soap has a fragrance which is strawberry, peach, pineapple, and has a carrot puree.  I used magenta, brilliant orange, titanium dioxide for the white, and left the rest alone with the carrot coloring.  Before setting up, the carrot was a very pretty yellow and it turned a darker yellow/brownish color.  The brilliant orange was very bright orange, but most of it disappeared in the final soap.  The magenta looked more brown.  Even though the colors were not as expected, the colors were very pretty in the end.
