rosemary mint salt bars

You'd think I would quit making salt bars by now!  I make them all the time it seems.  Only recently have I figured out my recipe and actually feel like they are salt bars.  I want them to feel heavy and to feel smooth like stone when I use them.  I also enjoy the creamy lather and the way my skin feels after I use them.

My latest batch is scented with rosemary mint, which is one of my favorite fragrances.  It always seems to make me feel good when I smell it.  I decided to go for simple and elegant and keep it a creamy off-white with clay and mica.  I sprinkled in some dill weed to give it that herbal look.  I also used one of my favorite molds for salt bars.  This shape seems to fit in my hand well.  Now I just have wait for these to cure.  I think that's the hardest part about making soap!

If you're really bored you can watch my video of me making these!


  1. I love salt bars, too. I've been stuck on a grapefruit scent lately, but rosemary mint sounds wonderful! for the long, long cure...

    1. Ooh, I love grapefruit, but haven't bought any! I'm too scared they'll be too tart. I hate the long cure. My energy ones have a long way to go.

  2. Salt bars can be so much fun to make, even if you have to wait for that long cure time. I think yours look great, Milla!

  3. I love salt bars too. They lat so long !
    My favourite scent is also grapefruit combined with lemon eo, but yours sounds also nice!
    Thanks for the video, Milla!

  4. Wonderful! I have lots of rosemary bushes in my back yard, so I have to try this. How long was your cure time?

  5. Thank you! I think I have enough salt bars for awhile and hope to cure them until summer, but I use them after 6 weeks and test them over time. This soap ended up turning a bit tan and the rosemary isn't as green anymore.
