用紫草浸油做皂真好
手攪三兩下就能搞定

這次的紫草浸泡油是2008年泡的(皂友幫我買的)
100元台幣而已
後來去年自己去買還差點買不到
自己上大陸去-找不到 (去到專賣中藥品的商場都沒人有賣)
請在地人找 -也找沒有
台灣也差點就找沒有
好不容易東問西問
一家青草店裡有 - 也就一咪咪 全被我包了
可那哪夠阿
經過一家中藥舖 趕緊請姐姐停車跳下去問
有 - 也就只有一瞇咪...當然-全包下了


油鹼一混合
呈現出巨峰葡萄的紫色! (好懷念巨峰葡萄)
(好像加太多了紫草浸泡油?? 因為只想要淡淡的紫...)

不死心想玩鹽皂
剩餘一咪咪的皂液當然又拿來玩!
加了10克的海鹽...
入小朵玫瑰模
好期待的紫玫瑰 結果兩朵都脫壞了 - 像是被毀容似的...
試試切開看切面
一下刀就碎了...


麋鹿的顏色還是跟雪花不同...
麋鹿的紫像是葡萄紫
雪花則像是好吃的芋頭冰


Need to practice my English writing
Starting from this POST~

Past years always don't have enough time to make "good" looking soap for the holiday gift,
Therefor this years!
Holiday soap, here I come!
I'm not good at making beautiful soap
one of reason is I'm serious hand "handicap" @@
other reason is - don't have ...time...
I'm glad I bought this mold and is very easy to get soap out
(some of my silicon mold are hard to make soap out)
So, this years holiday gift soap are set of snow soap.
This is 4Th in snow series - Snow of Purple Lavender.


This infused oil was infused from year 2008 and this is the last bottle.
The herbal was one of Taiwan Soap friend brought for me and only cost NT$100

Purple Gromwell is hard to find.
I was think Taiwan or China should easy to get like they are everywhere.
But guess what?
No.
Is not as easy as I think.
I went to China look for it last year when the business trip but just cannot find it.
Even I have the residents to look for it but no one know what's that.
I tried to buy from Taiwan is also ...hard to find!!! and only gets a little...(not as much as I expect...

Is very easy to get job done by using purple gromwell infused oil.
just mixed by hand, couple minutes, done and feels great!

Reindeer soap mold is from one of husband's relative
She gave me couple molds last year when we were in Taiwan :)

    Jenny:
    謝謝! 這次的麋鹿真的連細細的紋路都有出來 :)
    我看妳也很多漂亮的模阿!妳會翻模嘛?
    如果妳會我就寄一支麋鹿給妳...


    Anita:
    謝謝! 我以前也很頭痛紫草根的英文係啥?
    花了很多時間GOOGLE
    有看見SHINKANIX (日文紫根)
    後來JULIA也在找
    她比較利害
    她找到是Purple gromwell
    妳可以google一下
    Purple gromwell 跟 alkanet 的花看來像
    但是葉子是不同的
    如果妳再開一個window去比較紫草根(中醫圖片的較準)的花/葉
    它是跟Purple gromwell差不多的
    妳如果再比一下根 - Purple gromwell 的是紅到發黑的
    alkanet 我沒見過 可是google到的alkanet 粉看起來比較是磚紅色...
