After Eight (Chocolate Mint) Joy

These are my first Holiday soaps of the year, made in the Milky Way Joy mold. I was going for the fragrance of After Eight chocolates, its always a happy surprise to get those in a restaurant. I used goat milk soap base with a bit of emerald green liquid colourant and honey soap base coloured with cappuccino mica. The green soap is scented with Peppermint Essential Oil and the dark brown soap is scented with Chocolate Chip Cookie fragrance oil. These bars are 5.5 ounces each and I filled the molds all the way to the top, next time I'll leave a little space cause these were hard to get out of the mold. That little space will help:)

I like the unevenness of the colours, it gives the bars a little more rustic look. That can be hard to do with melt & pour soap. Hopefully I can make these again and get the same effect, letting the goat milk soap cool or thicken a little before pouring the honey soap through helps if you are going for a more uneven look. If you like mint chocolate you will love the scent of these soaps.
Thanks for looking!
