Bring on 2018!

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!

Roses soap

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 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!
