I love this recipe! It provides a gorgeous pink color and the end result is amazing. The soap is mild, silky soft and sudsy. A winner in my book!!

- Make your lye solution, weigh out your melted oils and combine both when temperatures are at around 100 degrees F. Add the Sweet Pea Bouquet fragrance oil to the entire batch at a light trace.
- Then separate half into a second dish and stir in the pink kaolin clay mixture, leaving the other half uncolored.
- Pour your pink colored soap into the white soap in a circular pattern. Try not to stir the two colors together too much or you will have a solid color. You want a two toned, swirled pattern.
- By pouring the soap, gravity and the actual pour creates the swirl patten for you. No stirring is necessary.
- Top off the bars by sprinkling the pink himalayan sea salt on the top while the soap is still wet. Gentle tap the salt so it sticks to the soap.
- Let the soap sit for 24 hours, pop it out of mold and slice into desired bars. Set the finished bars on a drying rack to cure for 4 to 6 weeks.
