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!

How to use soap pigments

I’m a big fan of soap pigments. They tend to colour my soap very evenly and are easy to use. They are definitely a lot less messy than lakes and micas, and also a little goes a long way. I would strongly suggest to invest in a trio of soap pigments, if you are into cold process soap making!
