Swap Feature – Crystal’s Berries & Twigs Soap

Berries & Twigs Soap.

I’ve now shared three of the soaps from our recent “My Favorite Recipe to Share” soap swap on The Sage Forum. I hope you have been enjoying these wonderful soap recipes and I hope these will be inspiring to you.

Crystal’s soap was a surprise for me as I normally don’t like the smell of Berries & Twigs Fragrance Oil right out of the bottle. This soap changed my mind about this fragrance and I think I just might have to try a soap scented with this. This bar of soap doesn’t have strongly contrasting swirl, but a very light delicate wisp of color instead. While the wispy style is different, I find it to add just enough color contrast that you look at the bar twice when trying to place the color.

Crystal’s Recipe:

19% Coconut Oil 24 oz
40% Olive Oil 52 oz
11% Shea Butter 14 oz
16% Palm Kernel Oil 20 oz
14% Soybean Oil 18 oz

Sodium Hydroxide 18.07 oz
Water 42.24 oz

Crystal’s Notes:

Processed at 120° F using cold process method. Swirled with Red Moroccan clay. 1 Tbsp mixed with 1 cup of raw soap at light trace. Fragranced with Berries & Twigs from The Sage with a usage of 3.5 oz.

This is a great recipe to use with varying scents or additives.

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade 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!
