Artisan soaps made from luxurious oils and exotic butters with milks, creams and silk fibers; to the whimsy of glycerine soap creations. Full of fluffy bubbles and velvet lathers, once your skin it treated to handmade soap you will never go back. bytheSEAsoap was born out of the love of TSPink soap rocks some fifteen years ago. I found those soaps at a Nevada City Art Gallery and my obsession for beauty in a bar of soap began. I still have a small piece of that first soap! ~~Pam Mella~~

OH GreatCakes Soap Works  aka Amy Warden has challenged interested soapers in expanding their horizons and add a touch of adventure in their soaping endeavors!  Thank you Amy!  I got involved around mid week 1 and couldn't participate.

Week 2 I'm in!  Here is my first full coconut milk soap with cocoa butter galore and a lovely Perisian Lime fragrance with a touch of Litsea!  Yellow Mica color added and a touch of TD  to the last bit to top it off!  Hurray.  I worked cool 98 degrees and did use a ice bath for the milk and lye combination.

Can't wait to see what others are doing.  I think I'll try Almond Milk a new family favorite, next in the milk department.

Here is Amy's link to the Great 2012 Soap Challenge!

So Coconut  Key Lime, you know it's plain but so yummy!  With gobs of tempting cocoa butter!

The bars were non gel, see the power circle?  LOL  the square and flower were left at room temperature.  Interestingly the color isn't that much different and the color comes from the fragrance!


  1. This turned out so pretty- I love it when the fragrance turns the soap pretty colors like this yellow! Makes it look so nice :) I love that flower molded one very much!

  2. I love the simplicity of it, yet it is also elegant.

  3. Very pretty soap and love the colour, just perfect, x Linda

  4. How yummy!! I'm a sucker for Coconut Lime! Looks like a very successful batch - great job!!
