Hasn’t this been the most wonderful summer ever? It’s been so much fun and inspirational and I feel fully re-charged and ready to bring some great new ideas to 2018. Check out what I’ve been up to and a little sneak peak on what’s coming this year!
I wanted to create a lip balm that gives your lips a touch of bronze shimmer, but without it being too obvious. The bronze is a perfect match to sun-kissed skin. The lip balm will not tint your lips, just add a light bronze shimmery shine to your lips and at the same time nourish and protect your lips.
Rose oil is one of the most expensive oils in the world, which is why we usually look to fragrances for an affordable alternative. Unfortunately, most rose fragrances tend to accelerate in cold process, but there are ways that you can still use them in your cold process soap. Here are some tips to working with accelerating fragrances and then have a go making this lovely rose soap.
Northern Lights is a stunning soap, which is fairly simple to make. I’ve used a combination of activated charcoal, pigments and glow in the dark pigment, and utilising a layering technique, to create the wavy bands of colours. Fresh garden mint with subtle floral notes completes this astonishing recreation of the northern lights!
I love soap making starter kits, because they’re a great way to get people into soap making. Here’s a fun Christmas themed project that you can do with the Pure Nature melt and pour soap kit plus a few little extra ingredients!
A pure and natural Christmas soap with a special blend of essential oils reminiscent of the freshly fallen snow in a pine forest. A cold process soap, which would also work with hot process technique!
This fun and cheerful soap is easy to make and doesn’t need any special ingredients. It is also a great last minute idea for Secret Santa and Bad Santa gifts. Or get the kids to make gifts for nana, friends, or the teacher.
