Tips for Swirling Soap with Natural Colors

Creating swirled cold-process soaps can be intimidating, but with a little patience and knowledge, it’s a craft that is fully worth it.

You can achieve the colors through powders from root vegetables, activated charcoal, cocoa and coffee, and so much more.
