Well, when I dyed the salts they were a nice shade of purple/lavender. When I added the salts to my soap at trace the turned this very pretty pink color. I am not sure that the color is the best for jasmine scent but it will have to do. Once I poured the soap into the mold I covered it with saran wrap and the wooden lid and put it in the oven for 1 hour. I probably should have left it in there for another 10-30 minutes since it was still still too soft to cut. I had to let it sit for about 30 minutes before I could cut it. It appeared to be in the gel stage when I cut it and I noticed a small crack on the bottom of the log from overheating probably. Maybe next time I will allow my lye to cool a bit more before I mix it with the oils and hope that that will minimize overheating. Anyways, it appears to be turning a darker pink than is seen in the photo below. I actually just looked at a picture of jasmine flowers and while the flower itself is white the base of the flower is almost hot pink. So maybe this color works. ;)
Anyone else made salt bars? They are quite fun!
