Noel soap

Noel is a castile soap that reminds me of Christmas times of past. Memories, family celebrations, faded photographs, hues of gold, green and red, the star on the Christmas tree, and a scent that lingered wherever you would go. The soap has a green and red swirl, which stands out against the white soap. I also introduce a new technique, the push swirl, which is a good swirling method for soap that has thickened.

Mica swirling technique

Creating swirly mica tops on your soaps looks a lot harder than it is, and the result is simply stunning! The surface of the soap is usually a just as important as the soap itself, and learning a technique that will create beautiful tops is very handy, especially since it leaves a lot of room for creativity.
