No Ordinary Sunset

The great thing about a sunset is that no two are ever the same. You know what range of colors to expect with a setting sun, but you never know how they'll present on the night. It's like that with Almost Sunset.

Herbs and spices react differently to each batch of oils. Just like the setting sun, sometimes the colors are really vivid, sometimes they're more mottled and subdued. I love making this soap.

Above are the logs I cut from the batch that's curing right now. Whatever the depth of colors, or the way they present themselves, the scent remains the same. And just like the setting sun on a warm summer's night, it's not easily forgotten.
