Make Leaf imprints in soap with fresh leaves. In soapmaking, you don’t always need expensive silicone impression mats to make imprints in your soap. Sometimes you have all you need in the garden. Always use non-toxic plants for imprints. Botanicals used in this soap were Amaranth, Mulberry, Pork Bush, and Mustard spinach.
