In the last swap, I was a participant and sent in 10 bars of soap. Opening that box was the highlight of my month for sure so I’m a participant in this swap as well. I swapped soap that will be featured on Soap Queen TV soon. In fact, the batch I sent is the batch I made on camera during the actual filming! =) The soap is made in the 18 Bar Birchwood Mold with the Butterflies and Feathers Silicone Impression Mat to give the bars a design on top. The blue color is created with Mermaid Mica and the soap is scented with White Magnolia Fragrance Oil. Be on the lookout for that tutorial soon on Soap Queen TV. =) If you want to see the soap I received in my box, tune into the Bramble Berry Facebook page this Friday, September 30th at 2 p.m. PST.

There were so many amazing soaps in this swap. I’m always inspired by the talent in soap making community! Below are just a few of the soaps that caught my eye. I wish I could highlight all of them. The countless layers in the Moroccan Mint Soap (below) by Baabbly Soap are stunning. That techniques requires some serious skill! The colors are the perfect complement to the fresh fragrance.

The beautiful color palette of these Cranberry Grapefruit Soaps by Boston Creations suits the combination of Cranberry Fig Fragrance Oil and Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil perfectly. The addition of deep gold mica on top is a beautiful finishing touch. Mica on top of a textured soap looks so luxurious, don’t you think? =)

I recently shared a photo of this beautiful Bocha Bar Soap made by Bamboo Forest Soap Company on Instagram, and you all agreed how stunning it is. I love the packaging and how the bright colors of the soap peeks through the lettering. The stamp on each bar creates lovely and cohesive branding. The bars are scented with Fresh Mango Fragrance Oil.

How adorable are these S’mores Shower Shot Caffeine Soaps by Swirling Sky Handmade? The bold layers and tall shape bring to mind a decadent cup of coffee. The green straw and coffee bean on top look fantastic. They are fragranced with a delicious combination of Hazelnut Toffee Fragrance Oil and Espresso Fragrance Oil.

These Beach Escapades Bars by Natural Pure Honest feature perfectly beachy layers. The bottom textured layer recreates the look of sand, followed by an ocean blue layer with white textured soap on top. They are fragranced with Salty Mariner Fragrance Oil, which is the perfect ozone fragrance for these bars.
