Hm, my husband seems to think I have soapisitis, and sadly I think he’s probably right! Is there a cure for that?! I hope not!
This soap is scented with Cedar and Saffron from Brambleberry, which is a really nice unisex fragrance, very natural and clean smelling. The swirls are colored with copper mica, cocoa powder, green oxide and super pearly white mica. The fragrance itself will discolour to a tan, so I left a good portion of the soap uncoloured. I used 1.5% sodium lactate this time, and it seems like a good amount to use - the soap came out of the mold easily and was ready to cut after 24 hours with no crumbles. I also used my new stickblender from BB (I’m on a Brambleberry role lately!), and it seems to have really reduced the white spots in my soaps. I also completely melted the palm oil, to incorporate the stearic acid evenly, and that seems to have helped reduce the white spots too.
