lauredhel: soapmaking - swirling the soap (soapswirl)
[personal profile] lauredhel posting in [community profile] soap
I finally got around to trimming some soap I made a fair while back. I thought I'd share a few pics. Most of these were made with Brambleberry fragrance oils (I've lifted their descriptions, all available at, and all are olive-dominant vegetable soaps.

Lily ("This duplication of the lovely pink and white oriental hybrid flower is sweet and sensual."):

Geranium Patch (rose geranium, lavender, and patchouli essential oil):

dark brown and purple swirled soaps with dragon stamps

Vanilla Lavender, made with Black Amber and Lavender FO ("Deep and sophisticated this fragrance blends rustic Amber with bold Parisian Lavender. Combined with these main scents is a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk. We've rounded out the fragrance with a surprising addition of raw Clary Sage resulting in an earthy concoction with hints of sweetness and pleasing floral notes."):

three soaps with a brown and tan swirl

Closeup of the Vanilla Lavender. I'm really proud of this swirl.

Ancient Sedona ("This fragrance is an Oriental Floral Amber. This sensual, deep scent was named for the famous city in Arizona, invoking days of old and a deeper, richer experience.It opens with green notes of Mandarin Leaf and Orange Blossom. Heart is heady night Floral, Bulgarian Rose and Vetiver. Dry down has sensual notes of Sandalwood, Bourbon Vanilla, Amber, Labdanum and Tonka Bean."). The colours came out just how I wanted.

More Ancient Sedona:

Love Spell ("It has fruity sweet notes of Italian Bergamot, White Lady Peach and Strawberry mixed with middle notes of Apple Blossom, African Tamarind and a touch of Damask Rose. The base is Tonka Bean, Coconut Milk and White Musk."):

soap, tannish with a neon pink swirl, and a spiral flower stamp

Sandalwood (these are quite speckled-y from an excess of oven processing):

brown and white swirled soaps. The tops are textured.

Rose soap ("This fragrance is a lighter, pinker rose than our English Rose. It smells like the petite baby roses that come in teensy little planters small enough to fit on your desk."), coloured with pink clay:

pale pink soaps with spiral flower stamps

And all together! (There are lots more in a box - these are just the ones I pulled out for the photos.)

19 soaps ranges on a blue towel. There are pink, pink/purple swirls, white with purple mica flower stamp, orange/brown swirls, brown/white swirls, purple/brown swirls.

Has anyone been soaping lately? Got any plans?
