Soap is an all original and unique welcome gift. Christmas soap is easy to make even for beginners. All you need is a soap base and Xmas molds for your soap.

You can create a wide variety of soaps combining together different dyes and essential oils. Even when you have limited number of ingredients, just combine it and get a lot of different soap pieces.
One of the most popular ideas for the Christmas soap along with soap figures of Santa Claus and a snowman is a snowflake figure.
Just add citrus or fir tree essential oils in the soap base and you’ll get stunning Christmas flavor.
One of the most appropriate ingredient to be added in Christmas soap is loofah. Grinded loofah looks like small pine needles in a transparent soap base.
A whole loofah in the soap looks like an orange. Don’t forget to add citrus essential oil.
When you add orange sections, you can make citrus soap that looks like an orange even without using loofah.
Another popular symbol of the holidays is the Christmas tree. You can just pour a green soap base in the tree mold.
Christmas tree soap looks much better with glitter.
Another way to beautify the Christmas tree soap is to apply mica with a brush on the surface of the finished piece of soap.
The ready made soap will acquire a bright look.
Another win-win New Year gift is a soap in the form of champagne bottle.
Since 2013 in the Chinese calendar is the year of Snake, you can also make soap in the shape of a snake.
Also you can try more advanced soap-making techniques “from scratch”, for example you can make soap with life-like snake skin.
- Even the most simplest homemade soap looks much better and more original compared to standard soap bought in the store.
