Peacock Swirl Using Natural Colorants

Who doesn’t like challenges? Even if they take time and energy, challenges are something I do with pleasure: there is always something to learn and you can never get bored of them. When Amy announced her new idea of having each month a challenge, I was really content. The bad part was that I will…

Leopard Spots Soap

This fourth week was the most challenging for me: really impressed by the leopard spotted soap done by Cee and so happy when Amy announced this technique,  I didn’t expect this week to be so difficult. I tried three times: for the first soap I didn’t calculate well the quantity of the main pot soap,…

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…

Elemental Swirl

It sounds gorgeous, I know, but at the first sight it sounded kind of difficult to me, because of the…

Tiger Stripe Soap Challenge

I am so happy  to be able to take part in this challenge organized by Amy.  Last year was really interesting and fun, so when Amy let us know the challenge would be organized again this year, I was really excited. For the 1st week, we had to make a Tiger Stripe soap.  Nice challenge,…

My First Landscape Soap

Creating peaked tops…

I have never thought making soaps involves so much energy, passion, creativity, ideas, colours, scents, joy… This is a watermelon soap made of goatmilk and buttermilk, palm oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, grapeseed oil, frankincense essential oil and lemon essential oil, Italian rose ochre, red clay, spirulina, poppy seeds. I have tried to…

Graduate Colours Soaps

I believe this is my favourite challenge…because of its simplicity. I found the blue soap made by Amy so lovely that I couldn’t wait trying my own gradure colours soap. As for the previous technique I had to use colorants, this time I was content to use only natural ingredients. My first experience: red clay…
