Creamy Vanilla Fig Emulsified Sugar Scrub that you will just fall in love with. It is creamier in texture and does not leak like the traditional sugar scrubs. What is great is that you can have more control over how much sugar you want to add or subtract depending how "scrubby" you like your scrubs.

Romantic Rose Gold Melt and Pour Bars I wanted to share it. What is really great about clear melt and pour soap base is that mica powder colorants really shine and in this recipe there is no doubt that the individual mica really are accentuated. This is an intermediate project that should take one to two hours and result in about 2 pounds of soap.

Minty Mocha Mantra Marble Cold Process Soap, it immediately made think of a Junior Mint. I really think this is a cool looking bar of soap. This recipe uses a product called Swirl Quick Mix Recipe. According to the Brambleberry website that is produces a recipe that gives you plenty of time to swirl or do intricate designs. Mission Peak Soap in Fremont sells Soap Quick which ha some of the same ingredients (Coconut, Palm) so I do not know if you use it and instead of Brambleberry product if it would make any difference. I never tried the Swirl Quick Mix before, but I have used Mission Peak's Soap Quick for a swirl in the pot technique and it came out great.
