Via Brambleberry: It's a combination of warm vanilla, light and fluffy rice, soft spices with a sweet and nutty bottom note.
Via Brambleberry: Wasabi fragrance is bright and fresh. This fragrance has hints of Eucalyptus, Ginger and Peppermint for refreshing top notes. It is grounded with Thyme and the faintest touch of Amber and Musk.

|Pop your soap out of the mold. Cut to whatever size you like. I would clean up the edges at this point but then I realized you don't need to. When you melt the plastic wrap is smooths out the edges naturally.|
|I use whatever plastic wrap I can find at a good price. Maybe not the super cheap stuff? Lay out a square piece. I like to have a pot holder under it to keep it steady and absorb the heat from the heat gun.|
|Center your soap.|
|Wrap it up like a package.|
|Fold over the ends.|
|Looks messy but it will shrink up with the heat gun.|
|I cut off the ends of the plastic so they aren't overlapping.|
|It's okay if the plastic is overlapping. Just looks better to have less plastic. For the next step I use my paper scrapping heat embossing gun. Use whatever you want but don't use a blow dryer. They don't get hot enough.|
|This may take practice. It took me awhile to get the hang of it. The distance of the heat gun, thickness of the plastic and all that. If you can practice on a scrap piece of soap it gets REALLY easy!|
