Cold and hot process soap

Pink Peony Soap

Orange Spice Hot Process Soap
If you're looking for something that's festive and easy to make, give this project a try. It's made with Lots of Lather Quick Mix, natural orange peel powder, and a blend of cinnamon and orange essential oil. Nice and simple!

Cranberry Cocktail Soap
This is a quintessential Christmas recipe. It has a red and green color palette and it's scented with Cranberry Cocktail Fragrance Oil. The angled design is perfect for more experienced makers.

Gentle Oatmeal Soap
Make these bars for friends and family with senstive skin. Oatmeal Melt and Pour Base is gentle and hydrating. The soap is scented with Golden Oats Fragrance Oil, which is a sweet mix of honey, vanilla, amber, and cocoa.

Gingerbread Man Soap
Piping melt and pour soap is an easy way to make your bars look special. For this recipe, we added a white outline and cute red buttons to the Gingerbread Mold. Once the bars are cool, they're ready to gift.

Bath bombs

Peppermint Candy Bath Bombs
This design is easier than it looks! Just mix green and red mica with rubbing alcohol and paint on the stripes. To complement the look, the bath bombs are scented with Candy Cane Fragrance Oil.

Gold Glimmer Bath Bombs
These will take you all the way through to the new year! It uses a similar mica painting technique, but it doesn't require as much precision. First, roll the bath bombs in Snowflake Sparkle Mica and then drizzle on King's Gold Mica mixed with alcohol. 

Sparkling Snowball Bath Truffles
You can make 18 truffles with this project, which is plenty to gift. Maybe keep a few for yourself too! They're made with skin-loving butters and topped with biodegradable glitter. An ice cream scoop creates the fun shape.

Maple Pecan Solid Scrub Bars
Maple Pecan Fragrance Oil will be your new favorite in no time. It's a must-have for the holidays, so we added it to these scrub bars. The combo of butter, sugar, and walnut shells leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
