There's never a bad time for popsicles

Because I had an excess, both of the bath salts and soap bits, I had to find ways to use them up. Soapy love is known for its popsicle soaps and they always look so fantastic, so of course I had to try my hand at making my own popsicle.

The embeds worked out rather well in the popsicle, giving it an almost Mondrian effect (I think), but the bath salts didn't fare as well. I thought I could just pour them in as a layer, but of course that doesn't make sense. The salts have nothing to adhere to, and when removed from the mould, just fell apart.

I put some of the salts into a soap base to see if it would work better. I ended up with this Frankenstinian popsicle instead. For now I've stopped trying, mostly because I ran out of popsicle sticks, but I am determined to try new patterns in the popsicle mould because 1) it's fun and 2) popsicle moulds make for very interesting designs.

Have a great week!


  1. Dang...the salt was a cool idea that would have looked amazing if it didn't crumble!

    1. It totally would, but it's a good way to learn what doesn't work too.
