The simplest things can be most beautiful. Like this cucumber calendula soap bar, made in an olive oil base. This is a very easy soap to make with impressive results and a great soap for beginners. The key to this soap is keeping every thing scant. Less is more with handmade soap. Using just a drop or two of green to keep the color very light and transparent will give you the best effect. Use just a small amount a calendula so you don't overwhelm the soap. Our calendula is a very rich color so you don't need much to get a stunning effect. The cucumber fragrance used in this soap is light and very "spa like" .
