Christmas scented soaps

I made up another batch of soap on Wednesday, I wanted a Christmassy one, with the smells of Christmas and the colours of Christmas.  I was hoping the soap would be a bit richer in the red colour, but never mind.  I used a red oxide instead of clay, but found the colour wasn't really that different to when I use just the clay.  I used patchouli, peppermint and cinnamon leaf essential oils in the soap. The peppermint is quite strong, but blends in well with the other scents. I am going to gift wrap some for gifts for Christmas.


  1. I can almost smell the cakes of soap from here!
    They look great!

  2. it would smell lovely and I don't know whether you could make a true red soap.

  3. That looks lovely.
    Soap is on my to do list but I am such a SA I haven't even got the equipment that I need together yet. Next year for sure.
