"Lava Lamp" Re-tool.....

Introducing "Lava Lamp III"  -I've gone back to an essential oil blend that is very similar to the 2010 version (by popular demand)  Lavender + Ylang Ylang with a few secrets thrown in for complexity.

Pink Clay and Alkanet Root Powder give this soap it's rich colors, and I don't know what my swirl "technique" is -if you could call it that.   I simply dump one color into the moulds, pour the other on top and mix a little bit with a discarded kitchen forky-thing (plastic, of course).  Oh I wish I could say it is more complex than that, but alas, it isn't! LOL!

Since ylang ylang is said to be an aphrodisiac ....I would expect this one to sell out quickly, as usual.   This batch is cured and ready for purchase in my Online Store  -feel free to take a peek!

Hmmm,great looking swirl - "discarded kitchen forky things" make good swirling tools. :D

Hi Becky,

I really like the design and your swirl technique, whatever it is, certainly seemed to work well. The appearance has depth and artistry and I'm sure it will be very popular. It's a lot of fun to be resourceful with this art form.

Once again, it is tempting to want to eat it.

Very nice!
