I have been making some men's scented soaps for my son for Christmas because he's finally decided that body wash is not kind to his skin. This is one of the first I made for him. I was thrilled by how easy it was to create a decorative touch by simply layering a bit of powdered cinnamon between pouring layers of the soap.  I like to think is reminiscent of the hiking trails local to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where I reside. And the scent? Well, it's equally amazing. I scented this masculine soap with a blend of Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Cedarwood, Lemon, and Petigrain. I decided to name this one Fragrant Woods.

I also used the same layering technique with these soaps.

This one is eucalyptus and tea tree. I layered it with fine ground, green colored loofah.

And this one is scented with cedarwood and sage essential oils. I layered it with ground apricot kernel meal.

My blog, Soap Deli News, is filled with homemade soap, beauty, and bath and body recipes. You can also find me on Pinterest and Instagram.

Wow, those look great!  Can I ask how you ground the loofah?  Or can you buy it pre ground?  I've started using fake colorant, but I have to admit, I'd rather go for something a little better for my skin..  Great job Smiley
