Do you love using bath fizzies in while you take a long bath? If you have never tried bath fizzies then you may be a convert if you try these Heavenly Bath Truffles from The Soap Queen. Never heard of bath truffles? Bath Truffles are essentially bath bombs with extra skin-loving oils and butters. They add more hydrating properties to the tub than typical bath bombs while still producing fizz.

Clover & Aloe Spin Swirl . Never heard of a spin swirl? This is the first time I have heard of it. The spin swirl technique refers to pour layers of soap into the mold, then spinning the soap batter to create a unique design. The key to spin the swirl is to spin it slowly and putting the fragrance it at the right time so it does not accelerate trace. Sounds like a cool technique that I may to try in the future when I am more comfortable with doing the swirl technique.
