Grapefruit, lemongrass & mint soap with marigold dried flowers and soap curls.

It has been a while since the last know... work, a bit of health issues and other things kept me pretty occupied in the last weeks!
Today I took a well-deserved day-off from work and I decided to consecrate it to relaxing things!

Today's topics: a bit of melt and pour soap and how to use mica in candles.
