Refreshing and invigorating, wakes you up!


1 pound opaque soap base
1 tablespoon cucumber fo
1 tablespoon English ivy fo
3-4 drops peppermint eo
light green mica


Melt down the soap base and scent. Pour 1/2 of your scented base into a glass-measuring cup and color as desired with the green mica. When your base cools to about 120 degrees, you are ready to pour. Take the colored base and the white base and begin to pour them on opposite sides of the mold, making one pass to create an "X" pattern. When you are finished pouring, take a spoon or pop stick and create a slight swirling motion in the soap. If you swirl it too much you will get a solid color. Allow to cool and package as desired.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
