A Lazy Sunday...and some Spearmint

I love Sundays, and I try not to get too ambitious about them. Got up late, had my coffee, read the paper, did some yoga, took a nap. Like that! :)

But this afternoon I was itching to use the beautiful golden organic calendula petals I got from Summersea, so (of course) I made some soap. This one is Spearmint and Sweet Orange Essential Oils with finely chopped calendula petals in the soap and sprinkled on top.

It really smells good and the flowers look so pretty. The soap has a golden-orange tint and is gorgeous. Calendula is one of the few dried herbs which keep their vivid color in cold process soap. Alas, most everything else ends up looking like mouse turds.
