I am a sucker for citrus scents and I have all my soaps to prove that. Sparing one of two soaps, all my bars have a hint of citrus somewhere. Here in India spring sneaks in very quietly and before we can actually get a feel for it, the hot summer sun is blazing away. Here is a 'Whiff of Spring' before it vanishes.


Made with coconut, palmolein and olive oils and scented with grapefruit and bergamot esssential oils. The two layers have been colored with wheatgrass and calamine clay. 

Have a great weekend people!! :)

I think citrus in soap is irresistable, too. Sometimes I have to examine a fragrance order and remove some citrus-y scents to give my soaps variety. :)

I love the natural colors--I've never tried either of them. They're beautiful.

Love your colour combination Nitya, and the stamp is cool! Is that your own design?

I agree, citrus scents are intoxicating and who wouldn't love to have it year round?

@Amy: Oh yes!! I have to remove citrus scents from my orders too...for the same reason. :D

@SoapSudsations: Thank you so much for the lovely comment! Yes I made that stamp myself and have been using it for almost 2 years.

Happy Soaping!!

Beautiful soap again, Nitya! Love the green you obtained using wheatgrass, which I have never used :)
Love your stamp too- such a delicate touch!

Thank you Natalia!! I made that stamp with a children's play clay kit. :)

Hey, where do you get calamine clay in India? Am new to soap making and want to try!

Nitya said...

@blah: look for calamine in a store selling cosmetics.

Hallo Nitya,
great coloured soaps and I also like citrus scents, the whole range from bergamot to tangarine.
Have a great time
