Just curious what kinds of Christmas soap everyone is making. I have made a few but looking for some more ideas. Hope this is the correct forum for asking this question.

I love this thread for gorgeous pics and ideas:

I haven't made any of my border soap yet, might try to do that this weekend. I am also planning a batch of "Elsa" soap - scented with Snow Witch from Mad Oils, in a pale blue, using water discount to create a swirl. Possibly blue mica on top.

I may also do the same thing with a "Anna" soap - pumpkin gingersnap FO, reddish color.

Irishlass, I love the stamping with the soap design - just glittery perfection!

All of my Christmas soaps are made and curing: bars of MO Sugar Cookie (not sure I'm in love with the scent), Orange/Clove EO blend, BB Pumpkin Souffle, and WSP Mint-something. I also have AHRE Sparkling Snowflake in a snowflake mold. I did two cupcakes: WSP Peppermint Stick (holy moley it's strong) and AHRE Country Christmas.

Now I just have to do the B&B stuff. I have a work furlough over Thanksgiving week so will take advantage to finish up, wrap, and get ready to mail!

It's woodland green oxide from Bulk Apothecary. I was going for a dark green swirl in a lighter green base, but I'm still learning how much is too much! It's a little darker in real life. Though the red an green soap looks very much true to the real-life colors.

I am loving the photos/inspiration here - thanks to everyone for sharing! Here are some I've worked on specifically for Christmas gifts. They were fun to make because each one was done using a technique I've never attempted before and I learned a lot about what to do differently next time. Aaah, soaping, the eternal work in progress...

Back left: salt bar with Rosemary, Peppermint, Lavender, and Eucalyptus EO
Center: 2-pass hanger swirl with Lavender, Bergamot, and Patchouli EO (not loving the colors)
Back right: salt bar with Bergamot, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Rosemary, and Geranium EO
Front left: Auntie Clara's Ghost Swirl technique with Rosemary and Spearmint EO
Front right: Reverse Feather Swirl with Fir Needle, Rosemary, and Spearmint EO

Not Shown: disastrous batch of attempted Dancing Funnel Swirl that went sideways more ways than I can count.
