Happy new year to all WholePort’s customers. On behalf of all our staff, I’d like to wish everyone of you a splendid 2014 ahead.
Today, we are going to make an essential oil soap with easy and everyday supplies. Just follow our tutorial and I’m sure all of you could make it! Let’s get rolling!
Tools and Materials to Prepare:
C.A few transparent soap base
F.A few dried flowers or fragrance
A. Soap mold of any kind. We’d suggest to begin with a basic one, rectangular would be fine.
Cut the soap base into small pieces
Put the soap base in steel cup and double boiling the cup until all soap base has been completely melted. Hint: Heat the cup with another pot full of boiling water.
Let the liquid soap cool down to about 50/ºC or 122/ºF，then add some essence oil and food color for better smell and pleasant look. Shake and stir, then pour the liquid to the mold for cool down.
To make more flavor into your soap. You could add some dry flowers to your soap. Pour 1/3 of the liquid melt soap base to the mold and then blend it with your dry flowers.
Wait until a thin film appears on the top, then pour the rest of the melt soap liquid. Wait until it cools down and wala…. your handmade flower essence oil soap is ready!
1. Make sure you put just right amount of liquid(water, cow milk, breast milk, black tea etc) to melt your soap base. Too much liquid will make your soap too soft. For every 100g of soap base, melt with 50g of liquid.
2.For every 100g of soap base, add 2-3g of essence oil. And do NOT use soap made with essence oil on babies.
3.For every 100g of soap base, add 1-2g honey to melt with the soap base. This could make your soap more smooth and add little color.
4.Do not add salt to melt with your soap base, since it will not make the soap any harder.
Finally, happy crafting your homemade essence oil soap!

Craft making could be tricky as well as fun. Just consider handing out your own unique handmade present for the Christmas and be worshipped in prayers would be thrill enough for me to start making something.
But to find a particular project to begin with could be quite troublesome. I often admire those craft masters and their stunning creations often made with the simplest and most common materials at hand. A brilliant artist idea would simply turn stone into gold. We found this interesting and easy-to-make socks snowman creation on facebook thanks to Linda Lanese. With little flower and cute button embellishment, the family of little snowman is just adorable! Check out facebook page for more details.
Our purchasing team also focuses on the biggest event of the year recently and presents a whole new series of cake and fondant molds for your Christmas table delights.

I guess with the above collection and ideas, I could certainly find my inspiration for a perfect Christmas handmade gift. Also I strongly suggest checking out at Wholeport Craft Club for more creations and inspirations uploaded by our happy customers. Wish everyone happy preparing your own unique Christmas handmade gift!

The holiday season is a time of colder temperatures, delicious food and fun gatherings with family and friends. All this closeness can have its downfalls, though, in the form of germs and colds. Young children can be particularly at risk, so make sure they learn the best way to keep germs at bay with good hand-washing habits.
Make staying healthy and germ-free fun for your little ones with these adorable refillable soap bottles and carton soap dishes. Taking the time to thoroughly wash hands can be a pain for kids who are always on the go, but these cute character bottles and dishes will make them happy to make sure their hands are clean and fresh.
Other tips for good hand-washing habits are to sing songs while washing, like “Happy birthday to you.” This ensures that kids scrub for long enough to be thoroughly clean.

Making learning fun can be a challenge for any parent. Every caretaker wants their child to find joy in learning, but often it’s hard when there are so many other things to compete for your child’s attention. That’s why disguising learning with fun activities is a great idea to make education exciting for your children.
A special crafting project can be just the trick for helping your young children focus on learning shapes, numbers and colors. As they work to make their piece of artwork the best it can be, simply repeating keywords can be great practice for your child’s development.
These great number beads from WholePort are a great way to help your child work on counting and colors. Come up with a special project like a wall dedicated to documenting your child’s growth throughout these years. These colorful numbers can dress up your wall, or be made into refrigerator magnets.
They’re also great for teachers in classrooms since you receive discounts for higher quantity orders. So make learning fun with WholePort! Let us know how you use your number beads in the comments!
