Reindeer M&P soap

I wasn't really planning to do any M&P soap for Xmas time, but... I received an adorable silicon mould to make reindeer-shaped ice cubes from my friend Nora.
In addition, knowing my love for candle making, my husband Massi, suggested me to use the mould to do reindeer-shaped floating candles (that I'll certainly do later on, and NO I won't be using the mould for cooking anymore!).


Few nights ago I couldn't really manage to sleep...to avoid getting stress by this, I decided to start thinking about something positive and nice, and came up with this idea: Reindeer M&P soap!!!

It's white and red, full of glitters and with a reindeer in the middle of each slice: very Xmast-ish indeed!
M&P base is always the same kind as for the other soaps, the soap is delicately amber scented, and each reindeer is coloured with Fairy Red mica, that shouldn't bleed!!!

Fire vibe soap: recipe, tricks and links to technical videos

Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
