Scented with Moonlight Pomegranate Fragrance , we coloured our batch with Brites NG Hot Pink at low concentration, and used 1/2 tsp Titanium Dioxide into the entire base as the fragrance can discolour a creamy beige colour.  For the red swirl colour, we used Carmine Liquid Dispersion and a touch of Brites NG Hot Pink to liven it up. The picture below shows the intensity of the swirl colour prior to swirling and subsequent curing.

For how to make soap from Scratch, please see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions Page

If you are a beginner, we recommend make this soap just one colour. If you are more advanced, you can follow the instructions below and make the centre pattern similar to marbling with a contrasting colour down the centre.


  • Prepare all ingredients and line the mould as usual

  • Set aside a small container or heat proof jug for the red swirl colour

  • Bring soap to thin trace, mix through the Titanium Dioxide and then remove approximately 1 - 2 cups of soap (I used a extra large waxed cup for this)

  • Colour the soap in the spare jug to a fairly dark shade as above

  • Colour the main pot of soap with a very light shade of the Brites for CP Pink, just enough to see it’s there - careful not to overtrace

  • Now quickly tip the red portion back into the main soap pot portion (the very pale pink/white)


  • Working quickly, pour the soap into the log mould – the colours will mix as you do this creating the effect as shown in the pictures

  • If you need to adjust the surface colour you can use a chopstick or spatula to drag the colour around or into the textured top and to soften the sharp colour

  • See full instructions for In the Pot Swirling Technique HERE.

  • Spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol to avoid possible ashing of the top surface, then insulate for gel, or you can cover with acetate once firm enough to lie this over the top without it sticking

  • Unmould and slice as usual
