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!

Candy cane swirl melt and pour

You will often hear that melt and pour soaps are unsuited for swirls. While it is true that the usual swirling techniques used in cold process soaps can’t be applied to melt and pour soap bases, there are ways to achieve really cool swirling effects in melt and pour. Using one such technique results in this yummy candy cane swirl soap, perfect for a last minute Christmas gift!
