    What a terrific soap for the summer months! And Anne-Marie is super cute in the video, as usual. ;)

    I have the square tray mold and love being able to make so many bars at one time, but my mold bows up in the middle so all of the bars are lopsided (except for the center one which is flat, but much thinner than the rest). By any chance do you have any suggestions on how to flatten out the mold?

    I am definitely going to have to get some of the grass stain FO–I LOVE the smell of fresh cut grass!

    • Courtney says:

      Wearing dish gloves, soak the mold in super hot water then you can either bend the mold back in place or put a small book on top of the mold as it cools.

      Hint: Boiling water will melt the mold so make sure it’s hot water, not boiling.

      Good luck!

    I ordered the Gardeners Soap kit last week and it’s suppose to be delivered tomorrow. I”m sooooo excited!!

  6. Mary says:

    I ordered the kit, made the soaps. They all sold the first time I had them out. One of my little bottles was not in the package , but I had lemongrass and made on of the layers with that. It smelled so good. Just like the grass just after you cut it.

    Hi, I am just getting into making soaps and wanted to try this wonderful gardener’s soap out. Unfortunately, Bramble Berry is all out, :[ Any idea when you may be getting more in stock?

    Also, do you think this would make a good exfoliating soap for anyone?

    Thank you.

    Has anyone else had a problem with the layers separating after a day or so? Mine did and I’m not sure what I did wrong. I used rubbing alcohol liberally and followed the time allotments between the layers.

    • Hi K! When you were pouring your layers, did you spray right before you poured them? It is important to spray the layers when they are fresh so that you can get them to stick together. You don’t want to wait to long or let it dry overnight. :)

  10. How much does 1 tbsp of walnuts and loofah weigh? Thanks!

  11. Emily says:

    Can this be made in a 3 lb loaf mold?

    • Hi Emily!

      You can absolutely adjust the size of this batch to whatever you would like it to be and I can totally see it being a M&P loaf. You’ll have to keep us updated and we’d love to see how it turns out for you. =)

      Happy Soaping!
