On the Curing Rack: Nag Champa and China Rain

I quietly made these two soaps in the background during a couple of the Soap Challenges. The Nag Champa soap is actually made with a little bit of buttermilk that I had left from the milk soap challenge. It is nearly ready to sell now! For those who are unfamiliar with Nag Champa, it is a sweet incense fragrance that was requested by one of my customers. It’s a very mellow and peaceful sort of scent. The green mica that I used for the main part of the soap turned quite a bit darker than I expected. I also swirled in some silver, brown, and purple micas, although the purple is now more of a plum color:

The Nag Champa soap will be available at Greatcakessoapworks.com this next week!!

The other soap I managed to slip in while you weren’t looking is a China Rain soap. Remember when I needed to make an extra batch of soap to have a white contrast in the Mokalata soap? Well, this is what I made with the rest of that batch! The supplier’s notes say that the fragrance turns a nice mauve in the soap, so I wanted to see exactly what they meant by that. It does have a bit of a pinkish hue to it. Of course I swirled some white into this one as well for a bit of contrast.

The China Rain scent is also quite sweet, but more floral, with hints of fresh rain showers. In my mind, it’s a soft-spoken soap, suitable for a soft-spoken lady. This soap will be available at Greatcakessoapworks.com around the first part of May.

  1. The color of the Nag Champa is so lovely. This is a fragrance I enjoy too.

    Is it alright to ask where your China Rain was purchased? I have some from NG BB DS and I’m wondering where you got yours. I like the color the soap is naturally and your white swirl is so delicate and lovely.
