First Swirls

I have been keen to try "proper" swirls in my soap for a while, but courage has been lacking until yesterday when I finally rolled up my sleeves, donned my gloves, took a deep breath and got going.

I decided on Lavender and Patchouli, a perennial favourite with customers coloured with some pretty lavender colour. By the time I poured, the coloured section was a bit thicker than the uncoloured portion so it sunk in parts and made some "clunky" swirls, but overall I am reasonably happy with the result. I think that I need to practice a bit, and it won't be long before I have another go.

This will be ready in about 4 weeks.


  1. I think that looks very pretty, and the purple is perfect for the scent combo. Well done, what will you try next?

  2. I like this Suzanne, lovely purple colour and the swirls are looking good

  3. Thanks girls. I am pretty pleased with the result. I am now trying to decide what to try next!
