Misty Maritime Moon Cold Process

I am always fascinated when I hear about super moons, eclipses, etc.  That when I saw these instructions from The Soap Queen on how to make Misty Maritime Moon Cold Process Soap that I wanted to take a closer look.  Now this is an intermediate level cold soap recipe/technique and it is not for the faint of heart since it may take several days to complete the technique.

Lavender Rose Sugar Scrub Recipe

Many years ago, I learned how to make my first scrub with salt in a class that I took from Lori Nova. I never had made a scrub with sugar and oil before and I do not know if sugar will dissolve since it so fine. But I found this recipe on the From Nature with Love website called Lavender Rose Sugar Scrub.  I was drawn to this recipe because of its simplicity but also because of the combination of the fragrance of lavender and rose.
