Pohutukawa Soap, fragranced with Pohutukawa and Energy
Pohutukawa - the New Zealand Christmas tree. It looks Christmassy and has a lovely flowery, a bit citrussy smell.
Scented with: Pohutukawa and Energy
You know how sometimes the best results are the unexpected ones? For this soap I had originally planned to do a pull through strainer swirl in a pipe and maybe some spheres.
But the fragrance had other plans - as soon as I put it into the soap batter, the soap totally thickened and all I could do was to quickly get one my normal soap loaf moulds out, do an in-the-pot-swirl of the colours and glob it in.
But when I cut it and added one of the lovely stamps that Stefan made me with some gold mica, I was really happy with the result.
I find, that sometimes soaps have their own ideas of how they want to look.
