This recipe was to use my Fresh Mango fragrance oil from Bramble Berry.
Stacey's Soap Recipe #B2 (b for blog) with Fresh Mango scent:
13.44 oz Palm Oil (crisco or shortening)
5.76 oz Coconut Oil (76 deg)
2.56 oz Palm Kernel Oil / Flakes
.64 oz Red Palm Butter
8 oz Castor Oil
1.6 oz Olive Oil
12.12 oz distilled water
4.51 oz lye NaOH
1 oz Fresh Mango fragrance oil
Glossy Tray Mold
Old pot used only for soaping
3/17/11 - First I made my lye solution so it would have time to cool. I always put the lye solution container into some ice water (make sure none of the ice water bath gets into the solution) to help it cool faster.
Then I put all of my solid oils into the pot and melted them over low heat.
Once the solid oils were melted, I added the liquid ones...temp gun I determined the oils were 120F when I added the lye solution, which was at 100F.
I even took a video of it so you know what it looks like when it's being blended.Once it got to trace, it was ready to have the fragrance oil added. I also took a video of trace so that you know what it looks like. Basically, it looks like pudding and when you drag your scraper through it, it leaves a "trace."
Next, I added the Fresh Mango fragrance oil.
5/7/11 - It was ready back on April 17th, but I've been a little busy. In any case, I used my soap stamp on top and cut them into nice little cubes.
Smells great in the shower and has a nice lather. I think I'd use this recipe again.
