How to Make Soap Last Longer in the Shower. I found it interesting that the Soap Queen says that cold process soap does not last as long as melt and pour. To me I found it quite the opposite. What I would like to know is how to keep the fragrance or essential oil to last longer in a bar of cold process soap. It always seems that the aroma is a lot stronger when I do a batch but by the time the batch is cured,,,there is hardly any scent. Any suggestions out there?

Then The Soap Queen posted instructions on how to do this Zesty Green Cold Process Soap Tutorial.It is a really cool technique that someone who is an intermediate level or above cold process soap maker can do.

Rose Quartz has such a gorgeous rose pink color. This project used the In-the-Put Swirl technique which uses shades of white and light pink to emulate the natural pattern in the gem. It is scented with Brambleberry's new Rose Quartz Fragrance Oil, which is a fresh take on a rose scent. It has notes of orange zest, jamine and soft sandlewood which makes this fragrance oil take on a modern traditional rose fragrances.

Christmas Star Melt and Pour Soap. This is a perfect project for those who are beginners. The most difficult part of this project is" painting" the soap once it is unmolded. But I do have to admit this soap looks like a Christmas cookie.
