Many of you have for sure already heard about this challenge organized by Lucy from Simply Radiant. The purpose is to make a soap every month based on a different country, on an ingredient representing the chosen country. The challenge can be followed on Youtube because the participants have to submit 2 videos every month:one showing the country they picked and a second one showing the soaping result. I am not really into videos, I have never made them (even though I wish I could make them), but I still wanted to take part. So, I decided to make every month a different soap based on a specific ingredient from a country (without the video part).
For my first month (January) I choose Tunisia and of course the ingredient first representing this country is nothing else than Jasmine flower. I have never used this flower in soap, so I was thinking how to introduce it in my soap apart from decoration. I got this idea of making powder of this dry flower. So this soap is an exfoliating soap which contains olive oil, coconut oil, cacao butter, grapessed oil, palm oil, castor oil, goat milk, jasmine powder, spirulina maxima powder, lavender, rosemary, clary sage and patchouli essential oils.
I would like to thank this way Lucy for organizing this challenge! This is an awesome idea and an excellent way to discover new ingredients and to make work my imagination.

Waouw!!!! C’est magnifique… Le savon et les photos! Les couleurs sont joliment associées et bien assorties aux petites fleurs de jasmin. Gene.
j’adore ce coté très nature des tes savons , bravo
Wauw, dat is een van de mooiste zepen die ik de laatste tijd heb gezien. Die kleur groen is prachtig. Ik heb 2 keer spirulinapoeder gebruikt. De eerste keer vond ik de kleur heel mooi, de tweede keer viel hij tegen. Klopt het dat je deze zeep niet hebt laten gellen?
Bedankt Marieke! Ik zou het niet weten, ik heb die dag verschillende zepen gemaakt allemaal met geiten melk en sommige heb ik in de frigo gezet, maar ik ben niet zeker dat die zeep erbij was.
Wow, what a pretty and delicate soap…the little jasmine buds on top are so charming! What a fun challenge!
foarte reusit acest sapun! iar floricele de iasomie sunt mirifice! le-ai uscat tu?
Nu, Liza, le am cumparat! iti multumesc!
Oooops,am I the only one who hasn’t known for this challenge? I’m glad you have,I’m looking forward to seeing this world journey your way!
I’ve been in Tunisia and I remember jasmine blooming trees and their dazing smell all around. That time I hated jasmine,its scent was overwhelming every cell of mine. Later, I realized how fine it can be, when dozed properly,lol!
Great idea you implemented here,I like this soap and the buds on the top are so beautiful. You maybe just could have tried some jasmine f.o. I know it wouldn’t suit your dedication to natural, but that’s my idea,I had to say. Tunisia is a great exporter of fragrances, jasmine is the first one, among many others.
Looking forward to seeing your February country!
Thanks Maja! In fact I made 2 bars and for one I them I tried jasmine fo, as requested by a colleague of mine. I will make an exception and I will try it, and I will let you know my impressions 😉
That’s a great idea – I’ll bet you come up with some very creative soaps over these next 12 months! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Doamne ce delicat e ! Superb aspectul florilor de iasomie deasupra 🙂
This is one of the most beautiful soap I’ve seen this year.

Wow, your Jasmine soap is gorgeous, Natalia! The photos are so pretty – I love how you staged the soap. The flower buds on top are an elegant touch, and I like the pencil line separating the layers. Bravo!
