Huckleberry Soap – Day 1

The other day Tina asked me to make two soaps using our Huckleberry Fragrance Oil. She wanted me to record my temperatures, time it took to trace and which one I thought smelled better. I couldn’t wait to get started. I love Huckleberries. A local wood fired oven pizzeria has a dessert pizza has apples, cinnamon, marscapone (a soft Italian cheese used in sweet and savory dishes), a little bit of brown sugar and of course HUCKLEBERRIES! When huckleberries are in season, I can be found there with family and friends chatting over this fabulous dessert pizza. Come join me for this fabulous Huckleberry soap!

Weigh all of the oils into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until liquid. Add the lye to the water to for a lye solution. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until a light trace is achieved. Add the Huckleberry Fragrance Oil and mix well. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Cut the soap. Allow the soap to cure. Longer curing time will result in a harder bar. Enjoy!

My starting oil temperature was 110° F. My starting Lye Solution temperature was 180° F. It took me using the immersion blender 40 seconds to reach light trace. I gently stirred in the fragrance oil and poured the soap into the mold. I let the soap sit for 24 hours before removing from the mold and cutting the soap.

P.S. Should you ever come our way, I’ll point you to Jack’s Wood Fired Oven so that you, too, can enjoy a Huckleberry Dessert Pizza.
