The beer store where I sell my soap was asking if I wanted to do a special Christmas gift thingy and I said maybe haha Smiley  This is the soap I ended up making..  it's the usual Olive/Coconut/Palm oil mix and it's scented with peppermint EO and Vanilla (non-discoloring) FO.  The color is a mix of mostly madder root added right to the batch and a little brick oxide (which hopefully won't act up like it did in the last batch).




It smells pretty awesome so far Smiley  The gift basket is going to be a big bar of soap (all my bars are around 8-10 oz), a peppermint candle made in a vintage tea cup, in a gift bag with a candy cane, ribbon, and a gift tag. 

thanks for looking!

That looks gorgeous, I adore it, but I do wonder if it should have been halloween soap?

I thought of that too haha Smiley  I wanted to make a James Bond batch, this would have been perfect...  hopefully it looks more Christmassy once it's in it's packaging and such...
