While our local weather has been taunting me with spring – the high is in the 60s today – we’re expecting snow once again along with some accumulation tomorrow. However, that does not mean I won’t keep wishing for spring to hurry up already! If it’s still cold where you’re at as well, take some time to bring a bit of spring indoors with this brightly colored homemade soap recipe!
Featured in March’s issue of eHandmade Magazine, this bamboo scented soap is made from combining both cold process soap and a glycerin soap base. The pastel shapes remind me of Easter eggs or flowers among green grass and are made from melt and pour soap – a quick and easy way to add embeds to your cold process soap recipes. It’s then scented with a fragrance oil blend of bamboo essence and green tea making a wonderful and fun all purpose soap for spring or even as homemade Easter basket gifts.
To get this recipe, you can download the PDF version of Wholesale Supplies Plus’ March 2014 eHandmade Magazine here.
