#SoaptheRainbow continued this week with all things orange. Click here to learn more about the #SoaptheRainbow series. Sarah with Spicy Pinecone used several shades of orange, along with fruity Energy Fragrance Oil, in her Solar Flare Cold Process Soap shown below. I love the vibrant swirl in her bars. For more inspiration, check out the #SoaptheRainbow Orange Week post.
Orange is a great lip tint option, especially during the summer months. The Summer Sunburst Lip Tint is colored with Sunset Orange Mica and scented with Pineapple Flavor Oil. It also has coconut oil, organic cocoa butter cubes, white beeswax and avocado oil, which moisturize the lips. You can apply one layer for a subtle peach tint, or build the color up for a bold orange hue.
The Orange Peel Swirled Soap has four different shades of orange for a warm and vibrant look. The swirls on top are colored with Nuclear Orange Pigment, Racing Stripe Orange Mica, Tangerine Wow! Colorant and Sunset Orange Mica. Titanium dioxide pigment creates a white base that helps the orange shades pop. Orange Peel Cybilla Fragrance Oil adds a bright scent to the bars.
Lisa’s bars are so unique. I love the confetti design and bright calendula on top. The stamp is nice and crisp as well. If you love the way the calendula looks on Lisa’s soap, check out the Marbled Clay Hot Process Soap Tutorial. Calendula also adds a pop of color to the Natural Potpourri Squares.
Above (clockwise, top) are Lisa’s collection of soaps, orange and white soap, red soap and blue soap. For more layered designs, check out the Layered Lilac Loofah Cold Process Tutorial. The Minty Clay Melt and Pour Soap has plenty of color contrast.
