Everything’s better with bacon, right? Even soap 🙂
When I saw the Bacon fragrance oil for sale on Nature’s Garden’s website (you can see it, here), I knew we just had to try it and that it would be the perfect compliment for an egg soap I had been wanting to make, even though I wasn’t too sure how it would turn out. But it turned out great, and the bacon fragrance really does smell just like bacon.
The egg soap was made pretty much the same way as our other soaps, but without goat milk and with the addition of an egg yolk from our flock (I’m pretty sure it was a duck egg, which are known for being richer than chicken eggs).
So, here’s our basic recipe for soap:
Pour a little over half of the soap mixture into a separate container and color it red (I used red oxide). For this soap I used my 10 inch silicone loaf mold from Brambleberry, which I absolutely love cause the sides don’t bow out like some of the other silicone loaf molds I’ve used. Anyways, I poured the soap into the mold in layers alternating between the red mixture and the uncolored mixture.
But I would like to mention one thing: The next day when I unmolded and cut this soap, it had a very strong egg smell to it that was slightly unpleasant. Over time that eggy aroma did fade away completely, and now a month after making this soap all I can smell is bacon.
