Cranberrry Fig

 
My first batch of soap for the first week of school.  This was made with Christmas colors.  Colors used were Titanium Dioxide and white sparkle mica for white, americana red oxide and green mica shimmer.  I also sprinkled iridescent glitters on top.  I had hoped and envisioned a deeper penetration of the colors into the soap.  But I think this would still work.  What do you think?
 
 
 The hubby came home, looked at the mold and said "Christmas".  So glad I don't have to explain what the soap was designed for.  When asked how the scent was, he said it smelled like "nature".  I used Brambleberry's Cranberry Fig fragrance oil.
 
 
 For this batch I used my recent favorite recipe which includes Coconut oil, Olive oil, Rice Bran oil, Palm oil, Mango butter, Castor oil and Avocado oil.
 
 
Skin loving additives were tussah silk, white kaolin clay and colloidal oatmeal.
 
 
The iridescent glitters add to the holiday theme but the white sparkle mica is not evident in the soap.
 
 
 
Thank you very much for dropping by.

  1. Hi,
    I agree with your husband...as soon as I saw this soap I thought 'great Christmas colours' before I had even started reading your blog. So, yep, I think it would definitely work as a Christmas soap!
