I have been planning this soap for some time now, I even created the mould for the gold nuggets over a year ago, I just hadn't gotten around to making it. So, when Amy Warden posted the location themed challenge I knew what to make.
Bendigo is a city built on gold - literally. With gold veins (gold mica lines) running underground and huge nuggets (soap nuggets) lying above, people from all over the world travelled to Bendigo in the late 1800s in search of their fortune.
Bendigo is also known for having the world's longest Chinese imperial dragon, making Dragon's Blood the perfect fragrance for this soap.
