Swap Feature – Cecelia’s Smells Like Bella Soap

Smells Like Bella.

Wow! I’ve been impressed by the last four soaps I’ve shared with you and I still have three more soaps that I haven’t even shared yet! 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 d and hope these will be inspiring to you.

The instant I opened Cecelia’s package of soap, I knew she had used Bella as the fragrance for her soap. I love the coloration of the top layer and swirled wave in this soap. This soap seems to portray Bella’s innocence with a bit of a mysterious twist. Either way, this soap is fun!

Cecelia’s Recipe:

12 oz Palm Kernel Oil
24 oz Olive Oil
12 oz Shea Butter
4 oz Apricot Kernel Oil
6 oz Coconut Oil
4 oz Almond Oil
2 oz Castor Oil

8.67 oz Sodium Hydroxide
21.5 oz Distilled Water

FO was Bella from MMS – I used 3 oz.

Cecelia’s Notes:

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe I designed that has a lot of Shea Butter in it. I am marketing this as a very special soap. Bubble wrap was used to make the design on the top of the bars. Shrieking Violet Neon was the soap colorant used.

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!
