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.
