I used a Bramble Berry fragrance called Mango Mango. It’s very sweet and seemed to be a good fit with goat milk soap. I left part of the soap uncolored, and colored the remaining portions with neon orange and neon green.
First I poured in a layer of uncolored soap.
Next I poured the green colored soap over the white, sort of in rows.
Next I added orange soap in rows between and on top of the green rows.
I used a chopstick to make feathery swirls throughout the soap.
Then I plopped some orange on top and swirled a bit.
I used the chopstick to try to make hearts, but only some of them turned out.
Goat milk soap just gets better over time. I just finished up the last bar of a batch I made in 2008. It was even more wonderful in 2012 than it was in 2008. I love the soft, creamy feel that the goat milk seems to give the soap.
It’s going to be hard to wait to give this Mango Swirl a try, but then that is always the case with cold process soap. But wait we must. Giving the soap some time to cure before use allows the soap to get milder. It also gets harder so that it lasts longer.
Have you ever tried goat milk soap? If not, I hope you’ll consider giving some of SoapArt’s goat milk soap a try. A bar or two of this batch will probably show up in my Etsy shop in a few weeks.
Thanks for reading!
