Soaps fragrant with cinnamon, "painted", with natural colouring, stamped or laminated, that fizz in the bath, and even have a written message. These 300 beautiful, easy-to-make soaps are gentle on your skin and a magnificent addition to bathroom décor. All use a simple melt and pour technique, and any craft, grocery, health food and pharmacy will have the supplies you need: a glycerine or coconut soap base, fragrances, additives (such as flowers and green tea), colorants (spices, dried herbs, cosmetic-grade colour), and moulds. What is really special are these 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 lustre powder; and many more.
