Holly Swirl

Holly SwirlSince I received the Saponine mold, making soaps is more than a simple pleasure. I can’t wait making my mantra swirl soap using this mold, but in the meantime, I subscribed to the Amy’s monthly challenge. This month’s soap challenge at Great Cakes Soapworks was the Holly Swirl, a modified in-the-pot swirl method and so called because it was first created by Holly Bailey of Missouri River Soap Co. I really liked it because it allows plenty of time with the trace. I do really like the method and I plan to use it a lot in the future.

Holly Swirl SoapSoap made of: coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, sesame oil, almond oil, cacao butter, water, zinc oxide, spirulina, yellow ochre, sea buckthorn oil, lavender essential oi, rosemary essential oil.

Thanks again to Amy Warden of  Great Cakes Soapworks for setting up and hosting the challenge!

  1. You got a very nice swirl and you always get so beautiful colors. I must be hungry, because the green swirly parts reminds me of broccoli😀

  2. Lovely swirl! And what a great selection of oils you’ve used – you’ve inspired me to be a bit more adventurous!

  3. OMG, you put sea buckthorn oil in! How does this precious oil feel in soap?
    It’s beautiful,Nat, but I see spirulina as gray, so it must be more beautiful in person!

  4. Sea buckthorn oil is not one I am familiar with, but your oils sound wonderful. Very unique swirls. I love your soap.

  5. Natalia, esti minunata! Am fost putin absenta de pe net si nu am apucat sa vad tot ce ai mai produs… abia astept sa le descopar pe rand si pe celelalte!🙂
