Myrtle Soap for My Mom #1

Scented with neroli orange blossom and may change essential oils

My mom's birthday is coming up in May, so I'm going to give her a bunch of soap that all have myrtle in them (that's her given name, but she never really liked it, she goes by Holly).
The balls in this are made from myrtle-infused olive oil. I then rolled the balls in powdered lemon balm. It bled, but I actually like it. Happy accident.
More myrtle soap to come.
