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.
