The Clash of Soaping Techniques

If only I could soap all day and everyday I would be one happy person.  I don't know about you but I tend to daydream about making soap while working my day job.  I thought about this soap for days and finally made the time to make it yesterday.  
I am always trying to push the boundaries of my soaping skills.  This goat milk soap is a combination of several soaping techniques that I have learned.  I used five colors and the techniques I used include the ITP swirl(in the pot), Mantra Swirl, Hanger Swirl and a technique called Synergy that I found on the Soaping 101 Channel on You Tube.  I also used a picture for inspiration from the fragrance Oil I used...Eucalyptus Spearmint. 
Here is the result of all that daydreaming.....


  1. Wow! That soap is full of energy! You must be really creative when you combine all those techniques.

  2. It was driving me crazy...I was thinking about it for days.

  3. I am totally with you in wishing I could soap all day and daydreaming about soap while at work! :-p The colors of your soap does convey its name. I hope to have the courage to do a mantra soon. Thank you for the inspiration. :-)

  4. What a cool idea to combine all of those can see each element but they blend so well together! Great job!

  5. Wow! This is exquisite!
    I, too, dream about soap - both when I'm sleeping and during my day job. I have come up with so many ideas - I need to write them down, as I wake up and forget a lot of them.
    I saw this technique on Soaping 101 and thought about adding the in the pot swirl, but not the mantra - great idea! Wonderful Colors! I can almost smell it from here.
    Thank you for the great video!
