Four New Soaps Available Soon!

Between practicing for the Soap Challenge Club, and getting ready for the 4th of July, I now have four new soaps to show you that will be available soon!

First is the beautiful Pikake Peacock soap, so named for the scent and the peacock swirl technique used to make the soap:

Pikake flowers are beautiful white flowers, also known as jasmine, which are used in Hawaiian leis. I recently discovered that the Hawaiian word “pikake” literally translates as “peacock”! I love this white floral scent, as it’s not so strong as some others I’ve tried in the past. It’s JUST RIGHT. This soap will be available June 22nd.

Next, is this year’s version of the Americana soap to celebrate Independence Day:

It’s scented with a lovely essential oil blend of lavender, tangerine, litsea cubeba, pink grapefruit, bergamot and ginger. Smells very fresh and clean! This soap will be available June 28th.

Third, is another peacock swirled soap called Pink Vanilla Cream:

Swirled with tones of pink, tan & copper and hints of yellow and white, this soap smells like something you might like to eat! Vanilla fans will love this combination of pink cream cheese frosting and vanilla cake, with a hint of butterscotch. So delish! Available July 10th.

Finally, we have Frutada Fiesta – another “practice” soap, but you didn’t need to know that! It turned out rather beautiful:

  1. Your soaps are so lovely!! Your flag soap is almost exactly like I’d been thinking about but didn’t go through with it this year. I was wanting to do a long, white, star embed in the blue field, but since I’ve never done embeds before didn’t want to chance messing up our flag! Yours turned out perfect!! None of your soaps look like your practicing! 🙂 Even when they look different from what we imagined they would, each one is a work of art. I love making soap!

  2. @Deanna – Thank you for your sweet words! I think your idea for a flag soap sounds like a good one! I’m sure it would work! Can’t hurt to try. 🙂

  3. Wow Amy! Those Peacock swirls are so, so pretty. You did a fantastic job, I love them both!

  4. @Michele – Thanks so much! I was hoping for a little brighter contrast on the second one. I knew the bottom was going to discolor to a dark brown, so I was trying to get colors that would correspond.

  5. I love how the peacock swirls turned out! I’m so sad I didn’t join the challenge last month, but I’m looking forward to the Mantra Swirl one coming up!

  6. Amy what beautiful soaps! The peacock swirl is lovely. Last May I was at the convention in Raleigh and was able to see Amanda Griffin the originator of this technique in soaping do this technique. For a first she used a squeeze bottle with three nozzles on top like chefs use! Pretty cool.

    Thank you for sharing.
