Vanilla Bean Soap



I had some vanilla bean powder in my pantry and thought it would be interesting to see what it did in soap. I split the soap into 2 portions and added powdered vanilla bean to half and then swirled the soap all together. The vanilla bean definitely adds nice visual interest; I thought the vanilla bean powder might dissolve and just turn the soap tan, but it stayed nice and speckled:

  4. I love the specks of vanilla bean, Cee Gee! It's nice to know that the vanilla bean powder stays speckled and doesn't dissolve. The soaps look gorgeous - great job!

  6. What a fun look! I haven't used the vanilla bean powder in my soaps before and I think I might have to after looking at these. :)

  7. Hmmmm....maybe I should use the vanilla bean powder I've had in my cupboard for ages! ....wouldn't it be great if the scent survived saponification? The powder smells so delicious.
