I used TKB's Pop Mica's for the colorant and scented it with Nature's Garden "Tropical Blast" fragrance.  YUM.EE!
"A fresh combination of pineapples, mango, papaya, coconut, and wild watermelon."

 I did a column swirl but the soap got a little gloppy towards the end.  But even so, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out!

MareMare do you remember that it was a few short years ago that I was making my first batch of soap?  You really helped me along with that and I totally want to thank-you for the encouragement and advice.  Without you...this creation would not have happened. 
 
You are the best!!  Truly.  I totally mean that. Thanks again!  Smiley

Aw thanks hon, I'm having a truly awful day so that made me feel better.

Do you buy a lot of FO's from Nature's Garden? I'm not sure if I've used them before but am out of a few things.

Thanks everyone!

MareMare, sorry to hear that you were having a crappy day but I'm glad to hear that I helped a tiny bit to make it better.  You know how it is...what goes around comes around.  I've got a lot more helping to give you to pay ya back for all the help you gave me!   Cheesy

So, yeah...Nature's Garden.  Yup, I used them for most of my FO's.  They have an incredible selection, good customer services and good prices.  They used to be mostly candles but they are really increasing their product line to include soaping stuff.  Oils, additives and the like.

The have a very active Facebook page and they really take to heart what the customers are saying and asking for.  They've also partnered with a soap maker now for new tutorials, recipes and ingredient testing.  It's pretty cool.

I think they're working pretty hard on becoming a one stop shop.  Which I would totally love!

A couple of my favorite FO's from them are:
Cracklin' Birch (#1 favorite!)
Cucumber/Wasahbi/Cilantro
Clean Cotton
Fruity Rings
Lilac
Hippie Christmas
