Lots of Swirls! 4


Lately, I’ve been having lots of fun making cold process soap and I’ve been on a swirls kick! I made a Cinnamon Rosemary Soap with Brown Oxide for the swirls. I also made a soap with Bulgarian Lavender and I used Lavender Fields for the swirls. Both of these soaps turned out so well I had to share the pictures of the finished soaps with you!

Recipe for Bulgarian Lavender Soap

8 ounces weight Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
4 ounces weight Coconut Oil
4 ounces weight Olive Oil

2.2 ounces Sodium Hydroxide
6 fluid ounces water

9.5 mL of Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil

1/2 teaspoon of Lavender Fields Dry Color

About Andee

I’m a twenty something soap snob. I’ve grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won’t tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

      thienkim,
      Bulgarian Lavender is not blended, therefore, the scent will vary from crop to crop. Each crop varies from water received, season harvested, weather and other factors.

      Lavender 40/42 is blended. The blending is to help the scent stay the same even with crop differences.

    With your colors, did you mix it into glycerins first? I’m haven’t tried color yet and am trying get get tips from everyone. Is 1/2 ts of pigments a good general suggestion per lb? And what if I add two colors? What would you suggest then?
