Cinnamon Tiger SwirL Soap

My entry into this month's soap challenge
(http://soapchallengeclub.com) is a soap made with
Homemade Craft Beer by a local beer makin' guy,
Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, & Rice Bran Oil.

The Soap Challenge Club has a monthly soaping
challenge in which a tutorial is given to learn a new soap technique.
This month's challenge is called a "tiger swirl". For the tiger's stripes
I used Activated Charcoal, Sandalwood Powder, Cinnamon Powder,
and a combination of Madder Root and Annato seeds
infused into Olive Oil. 

The soap is scented with the Essential Oils of
Bergamot, Cedarwood, and Patchouli.
Yeah, smells woodsy, outdoorsy, like a tiger...kinda....
Ok, Ok, smells grrrreat!

Soap Date & Gift Wrapping Soap

I made a large "master" batch of soap.,
divided it into 2 parts,
my friend Chantel, who also makes soap,
 added Lavender essential oil, pink clay and
Lavender buds (she collected) to her half.
I added orange peel,Cedarwood essential oil,
and Calendula petals from my garden.
Then we combined them, with an activated charcoal
pencil line between the 2 layers.
Smells wonderful, y'all!

A generous friend brought over wax/candy
molds- oh boy, getting fancy on designing
decorative wraps for my soaps.
Wax snow flake with wax snowman smushed on top.
This soap is Irish Seaweed Soap.
Smells like the ocean.
