Chamomile HoneyComb Slices

These three-layer soaps are so fun to make. Infusing the soap base with chamomile flowers provides a soft, creamy color. The honeycomb texture is created with small squares of bubble wrap in the bottom of each mold section, while the honey soap base and gold EnviroGlitter provides added color and depth.

Chaparral Soap on a Rope

Chaparral (larrea divaricate) has traditionally been used as a southwestern herbal remedy for conditions ranging from arthritis to athletes foot, but in this recipe  we're using it to add an amazing natural scent to our soap and possibly some antifungal properties. A soap stamp completes the look and makes this bar ready for gifting, or using for yourself!
