Default Minty Christmas soaps

These are all the same recipe, but with different micas and oxides for color. I don't think I have quite enough for the teachers gifts. Some of them might have to get something other than soap this year...IMG_20171117_105306-01.jpeg

Pretty pretty! Are they salt bars?

No. It's like there's the very thinnest layer of ash giving them all a sort of frosty look. The center bar has some confetti in it to resemble snow.

Those are gorgeous - I especially love the color combinations and the wispy swirls.

By the way, on Monday I made a "snowfall" soap that was totally inspired by your October SMF Challenge entry, and also utilized Auntie Clara's dappled soap effect using salt. I haven't cut the loaf yet (worried about it developing ash) but want to say thank you for the inspiration!

I'm glad I could pass the idea on. I'm sure I'm not the originator, of course. I'll tell my Buddy. A snowy soap was his idea this year. The dappled soap is such a subtle effect-- I hope you share pictures!

The green is Woodland Green Oxide from Bulk Apothecary. The rest is all from BB: blue = Caribbean Blue Mica, red/pink = Brick Red Oxide, white = kaolin clay. I feel like I'm starting to get better control over my colors.

I thought I would add my final two Christmas soaps here. I know it seems like a lot for just Christmas teacher gifts, but I make tiny batches, so it's really not much.

They are all the same recipe. This white one is fragrance and color free. The brown swirl has Cinnamon Bun (I think) FO from Nurture. Cocoa powder and TD for the swirl.IMG_20171203_224557-01.jpeg
