What Soap should I Make Poll

I have 6 pounds of cold process soap in to make 3 2 pound batches of handmilled soap. I am wavering on what to make at first. I am leaning towards Moon Lake Musk for my first batch and perhaps one unscented batch and some more dog soap.What do you think? any requests or suggestions!

They all sound good to me! I'm leaning toward the unscented soap though only because I'm making a batch myself:)

thanks Patrice for your feedback, I had a custom order for an entire 2 pound block one time of unscented soap so that made me think about all the people who are sensitive to fragrances (like pregnant ladies) and that maybe I SHOULD make a batch this way as a nice choice. I add emu oil and sunflower oil to it so it is real nice. I SWEAR by emu oil now it hs done wonders for my skin!

Unscented is always good. I have a few people who I shop for who would only use unscented. As to scents I am always looking for "man" soap. So far my husbands favorite is Dennis Andersons Leaf and Bud Hemp Soap Bar. It is a glycerin soap and I would love something like it in a C.P. It smells like clove and cinnamon.

HI Laura, i have 2 stellar men's scents that are quite unique, Black Knight of Avalon and Knights Templar Quest, both very different from each other. Black Knight is my best seller, they are both available in my glycerin soap and come in neat medieval type molds. Black Knight is a complex, knock your socks off smoky sexy scent with rose in it and Knights Templar is also a complex blend reminiscent of Old Spice in a way with a fruity berry tone. I am going to make a batch of unscented handmilled soap with emu oil next after my Moon Lake Musk. Both of those will take 2 -3 weeks to cure so check back on my site then. My glycerin soaps are ready now. I also am offering right now a spa bag gift set in Black Knight of Avalon with soap, lotion with emu oil, 3-in-1 shower gel, cologne, buttermilk bath, and a bath sponge or luffa sponge and it is on sale for Father's day half off at $20. It can be found on my Etsy site http://2VirgosDesigns.etsy.com

I vote unscented and a masculine scent since it's almost Father's Day! More mojo coming your way!

Hey Heather, thanks for the vote...it would be past Father's Day to make men's scented handmilled soap so I will do unscented for the allergy prone, pregnant ladies, and asthma sufferers out there! I already ahve 2 luscious glycerin soaps in mens's scents and I have just now greened up my line by offering all natural pure glycerin soap now, no chemicals other than lye made this soap, it is pure soap, outside of the fragrance oils and color I add. Thanks for the mojo!
