Soaps fragrant with cinnamon, 'painted' with natural coloring, stamped or laminated, that fizz in the bath, and even have a written message. These 300 beautiful, easy-to-make soaps are gentle on the skin and a charming addition to bathroom décor. All use a simple melt and pour technique, and any craft, grocery, health food or drug store will have the supplies you need; a glycerin or coconut soap base, fragrances, additives (such as flowers and green tea), colorants (spices, dried herbs, cosmetic-grade color), and molds. What's really special are recipes for bee-shaped fruited honey bars; deliciously scented lemon sage scrub; a heart swirl with smaller, decorative soap pieces embedded inside; a French cameo; the leaf-shaped mountain therapy blend with gold luster powder; and many more.
