There are so many ways to incorporate gem and crystal designs in your projects. We have a new collection of gemstone products that will get you in the mood to create gem soap, bath bombs, and more. Find inspiration below.
The Sparkly Garnet Soap Gems are an easy way to get started – all you need is melt and pour soap and a sharp knife to create the signature shape. The Free-Form Gemstones take the project to the next level with shimmery embeds and a variety of purple hues. You can also embed the gemstones into cold process, as seen in the Emerald Swirl Soap Tutorial. It’s made with green and gold colorants and scented with fresh Green Fig Fragrance Oil. Sometimes adding a crystal design to your soap is as easy as topping it with pink sea salt and Snowflake Sparkle Mica, as shown in the Rose Quartz Cold Process Soap Tutorial.
