We always look forward to making a batch of peppermint soap because the peppermint essential oil is so refreshing. Each breath feels crisp and clean. All sleepiness wiped away.
After it is poured into the mold, it sits for about a day to fully saponify. It smells so wonderful.
Once out of the mold, the peppermint scent is intoxicating.
Cutting the soap releases even more of the peppermint scent, it grows richer as it cures.
