The 3rd Week Challenge- Swirls Tops


I was really excited about this challenge, as it gave me the opportunity to try something I have never tried before. Looking at all those beautifully made soaps by Emily was an inspiration for me.

My first soap is a Russian Cambrian Clay soap which contains coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, sesame oil, avocado oil, shea butter, Cambrian blue clay and oxide zinc+activated charcoal. Scented with frankincense essential oil and basil essential oil.


My second try was a lavender and frankincense essential oil soap, which contains for its top alkanet, zinc oxide, poppy seeds, some purple peals. I find this top to charged, not really my style, but this means exploring new things, don’t you think?


Thanks Amy for this colorful challenge, this is something I will certainly try again!

    I´m always so stunned when I see your soaps with all natural colorants. The one with Russian Cambrian Clay is so beautiful. And the glitter makes the top even more interesting.

    I was really looking forward to seeing your soap for this challenge since using natural colorants only is always little bit demanding… I really like how soaps turned out! I think that those small soap balls are really special detail contributing the overall look of the soap. You inspired me and I started to make them, although it is not easy at all 🙂 Hardly wait to see your new soap designs using this technique!
