I found this really cool video on You Tube called Striped Mantra Marble Swirl in CP Soap. This 15 minute video by Soap Lily Soaps made a bar of soap which is half solid color and the other half a swirl technique. In this video, two people were doing it together and it maybe a good idea for the first few times you may want to have someone help you. If you are really experienced and feel that you can do it by yourself then go ahead. Down the road when I try this technique I will recruit a second pair of hands to help me out.

Did you know that honey is a popular additive for cold process soap? I did not until I read the post from The Soap Queen called Adding Honey to Cold Process Soap: Tips, Tricks and Recipe. According to the post, honey has various properties that makes it appealing for skincare. It is a natural humectant which means that is absorbs moisture from the air and in turn it is great for the skin to help retain moisture. Honey also contains antioxidents and natural sugars which can increase the lather in a bar of cold process soap. But it can be tricky to work with. If you had it to cold process soap, it is adding extra sugar to the batter and sugar causes the batch to heat up. I did know that....learned something new today. So this can happen if you add anything that contain natural sugars ie milk, fruit juices etc. If you are interested in learning more, then read this interesting post.
