Dandelion Swirl Challenge

It's been a few months since I've been able to take part in Amy's soap challenges at Greatcakes Soapworks. This month's challenge was the Dandelion Swirl - a pretty cool technique if you ask me. I purchased some new micas from Two Blooms Aromatics a while ago and what a perfect opportunity to try all three of them.
Fresh in the mold.
For the swirl I used Apple Martini, Hot Pink and Peacock Blue Micas from Two Blooms. I didn't want a bright white for the base so I added just a touch of Tangerine WOW from Brambleberry; think I should have added a touch more. I scented is with a combination of Raspberry fragrance oil and Peppermint essential oil. I don't know what I was thinking when I came up with that scent combo but I really like it.
Love that moment when the soap log is just cut!

Do you see the kissing dolphins??

Raspberry Mint Dandelion Swirl


  1. That is lovely! It came out great--especially the kissing dolphin bars. (I love finding pictures in soap.) Cool top, too; I like the fern/leaf look of it.

  2. Gorgeous, love your choice for colors!

  3. So glad you are back to the challenge, Eileen! I'm not sure which part I like more - the inside swirl or the top swirl! Both turned out really great!

  4. Beautiful soaps! I love the colors. How funny that you have kissing dolphins! I have kissing whales! :)

  5. Very pretty and the colors really pop!

  6. Nice color combo and I love your finished top

  7. Nice swirl! <3
