On the Curing Rack: Peppermint Soap!

It’s difficult to think about Christmas soaps when the temperatures are still in the 60’s and 70’s, but I decided I just needed to pull the trigger and pull out the supplies to make peppermint soap! The design is new (again!) this year. As you can see, there’s a lighter pink swirl in with the red, and each bar looks completely different!

What’s really exciting is the curlycue swirl that I made – accidentally, of course – for the first time! Here’s another view:

In case you are wondering, these are made with pure peppermint essential oil and they are quite strong! In fact, I do put a warning on the label not to use this soap on the more *ahem* sensitive areas of your body. Peppermint soaps will be available at Greatcakessoapworks.com on November 8th!

  1. Beautiful,beautiful,beautiful! Let me know when you get around to having that swirl technique for your club. I want that one!!!

  2. Your soaps are lovely – just like a candy cane! I think you’ll find the peppermint EO will fade a bit, possibly before the bars leave the building – this has been my experience anyway.

  3. I have to agree with the warning label 🙂 I was thinking of making mine with a combination of peppermint eo and a sugar scented fragrance oil. I’m going for a candy cane scent but want to limit the peppermint eo to no more than .25oz per pound of oils.

    I love the swirls in your bars. I’m wondering if you have any advice for packaging pretty bars like these without covering up the swirl design? I usually use a belly band style wrapper so customers can smell the bars.
