Christmas Soaps 2016

I've been getting into the festive spirit and making some glittery and pepperminty Christmas soaps. I love the smell of peppermint and especially love it in soap - it is so refreshing and energising in that morning shower! And, of course, it smells like candy canes.


This one I called MERRY MINT.

I did a drop swirl - poured white batter into the mould then dropped red and green coloured batter into it from varying heights. Each bar is like a little picture.



This one I called PEPPERMINT CHRISTMAS for a lack of imagination.  It's a 3-colour tiger swirl with a red soap ball on top and gold glitter. It, too, smells like candy canes.




And lastly, my favourite. This one is STAR OF WONDER. It has a wonderful spicy essential oil blend of clove bud, lemon myrtle and cinnamon leaf. Activated charcoal gives it the dark night sky colour.
