I've been making quite a few salt bars lately, here are a few of them.

the orange and pink are scented with fresh snow, the blue and grey with storm watch and the bugs in front with white tea & ginger.


these are from a new mold, scented with santas pipe. Already starting to discolor. These and the next two have aloe, coconut milk and kaolin.


I finally got a nice pink using red #33. scented with a blend that includes champagne and red lychee tea.


unscented and uncolored for a family member

This is my first attempt at whipped soap. I ended up with a lot of air pockets. scented with bayshore


these ones again. No orange was used in the one, the pink and yellow mixed to create this neon nightmare. This is what usually happens when I use red #33, it so easy to use too much. It was supposed to be pastel pink/yellow swirls in white. At least the blue/grey turned out how I wanted.

I love your salt bars!! I also greatly enjoy making whipped soap. There is something rewarding about it.

Like the pink and yellow one...lol... but any soap with orange in it, whether on purpose or by accident, catches my eye every time. I have convinced myself that orange is my "wake me up" color :)

I still need to see if my whipped soap floats but it was fun to make. I like my orange ones too, the scent makes it kinda weird though. I am really happy that I now know how to make a bright orange.

The bugs are adorable and I love the salt bars! I have yet to make whipped soap, but I keep watching YT videos of others doing it lol.

These bugs are from my red Palm oil disaster batch. I think they are still cute.

I love your neon nightmare and I think your storm watch soap looks like a perfect storm :).

ETA: also, that pink is so beautiful.

I actually really like the orange, K. Although I can see how you would get sick of it if you had to go through a bunch of it.

Nice bugs, especially like the dragonflies and butterflies. I have some orange soap from red palm oil too, I regret ever buying the stuff.

I love the orange one (it's my favorite color)... so cheerful! I've been meaning to try my hand at whipped soap too. Yours came out really nice. :)

I love the colours in the orange/pink one, even if it didn't go to plan! Very pretty.

They all look great! I've been too chicken to try swirling in a salt bar. The storm watch and bug batches are definitely my faves. Where did you get the white tea & ginger FO? I've got some from Fragrancebuddy and was planning to use it in my next batch but the max usage rate for soap is 18%! Just curious how much you used and how it's holding up so far . . .

I only use 35%-50% salt, it doesn't thicken fast at all so swirls are easy.
My white tea & ginger comes from natures garden, I use 1 oz PPO and it hold well for being such a light scent.

Doriette, my favorite White Tea and Gingers are from BB and PFO, both are nice, are easy soapers, and stick well (although as Obsidian notes, the scent is inherently not a heavy one). I did research a bunch and tried several based on that, you know how I am :) Good for people who don't like in-your-face scents, but I would still use an oz/ppo like Obsidian did.
