Going green again

Here's yet another soap colored with wheatgrass as I couldn't get enough of it in the castile soap, which by the way has still not set. Wheatgrass imparts a very elegant green to soap and me loves a green soap. So here I combined tea tree and mint essential oils to help a pimply teenager (my cousin). She wanted to see how soap is made and we had a blast that evening with a lot of weighing, stirring and giggling. The partly liquid coconut oil refused to come out of the bottle with a micro mini opening and we both had to squeeze it out with all our might. And when the stubborn thing actually came out, it was all over my clothes.
Here's a tip I found on the internet: rub shampoo into the oil stain without wetting the cloth and then put it in the washing machine with other laundry. Worked like magic. :)

Brown and green layers 
The brown swirls on top didn't work out like how
I wanted and since it was a very small batch,
a lot of air bubbles got whipped in

Coffee beans on top was my cousin's idea

Have a great bubbly week!!

Thank you so much Natalia!! Sorry you are having a hard time linking to my blog directly through yours. I haven't changed any settings...promise!! On the other hand I am also having the same kind of problem with some other blogs. When I search for them through google I reach the blog, but when I click on the link on my blog list, something goes haywire. Will check my settings to see if anything got changed.
Have a wonderful day!!

Not only the green colour is elegant. The whole soap is very elegant. The combination of brown and green looks great.
