Soap Spheres

I finally made some soap spheres! These will definitely add a fun punch of color to my soaps. I found it a bit tedious rolling the soap into balls, but I like how they came out, and I can’t wait to use them again in a few larger batches.

Natural colorants were used in the soap: annatto, red clay, pink clay and parsley powder. The green is fading, and I used some of them in a mini-size rosemary lime soap. The smell is incredible. I am planning to wrap these up and give them to my nieces for Easter. Just the right size for little hands.

I used these guest size loaf molds from Wholesale Supplies Plus. I’m glad I found a small mold, but my soap does not slide out easily. It sticks, and I end up peeling it out of the mold. I think I need to use a firmer soap recipe, with less soft oils. Maybe adding beeswax will help. Any good recipe suggestions? New experiments will be coming up.

Another Cool Looking Soap

I love how this one looks, and it smells divine. I have another fair coming up in two weeks, I’ll have to test this bar to see if it’s ready to use.

Swirls

I learned a cool swirling technique from Corrie over at Lomond Soap. I love how my batch of Christmas soap came out. This one is scented with Fir Needle essential oil and a natural green colorant. Need to make more batches for the holidays.
