Making Honey Bee Soap | Fragrance Testing with Video | honeycomb nuggets

Posted on April 24, 2017 | 0 comments

Honey Bee Soap Recipe

This soap recipe is based on a 1 pound (16 oz /  453.59 g) batch. Here we tested the Honey Bee fragrance from Rustic Escentuals . The scent is a combination of honeywildflowers, vanilla and sandalwood.  Has 0% vanillin content, but does discolor to a light tan, which is quite fitting for honey soap anyway. I can really pick up the sandalwood in this scent as well; and think it would be lovely in other body products and candles.

 


 

Please be sure to go to SoapCalc.net to run the numbers through again to be sure the numbers are accurate for this recipe (typos can happen).

Basic soap making knowledge and proper safety gear/precautions is necessary as this is not a tutorial, I am simply sharing my recipe with you and the fragrance results.

If you decide to substitute ANY of the oils or butters, you must run it through the soap calculator as this will change the amount of lye/water you will need. 

Honey Bee soap 

We have this soap superfatted at 7% (you can adjust that if you wish).  I like my lye and oils to be in the temperature range of 80-100 F. 

 

Lard                   272.16 g  ( 9.60 oz)       (60%)

Coconut Oil      108.86 g   ( 3.84 oz )      (24%)

Shea Butter        45.36 g   ( 1.60 oz )      (10%)

Castor Oil           27.22 g   .96 oz)         ( 6 %)

These are all measured by weight

------------------------------------

Water            172.36 g    (6.08 oz)  

Lye/ Sodium Hydroxide    62.92g    (2.22 oz)  

These are all measured by weight

------------------------------------

Optional  Additives

Sodium Lactate         2 tsp

Buttermilk powder     1 tsp

Goat Milk powder      2 tsp

Kaolin Clay                1 tsp

Fragrance    1 oz  - by weight  per pound of soap (so for this recipe .5 oz - 1 oz, your preference) or leave unscented if you wish.

NOTE: If using milks in liquid form, be sure to deduct your liquid milk amount from your water amount. For ex: if your adding 1 oz of liquid milk, be sure to take 1 oz of water away from the recipe.

~  I often use liquid milks, but when I use powdered milks of any kind (cream, buttermilk, goat milk) I absolutely love these from Amazon http://amzn.to/2nih0RF

Allow to cure for 4-6 weeks,  then enjoy!

Lovely (type) Fragrance Testing - Making in Soap with Video

Posted on March 25, 2017 | 0 comments

Lovely (type) Soap Recipe

This soap recipe is based on a 1 pound (16 oz /  453.59 g) batch. Here we tested the Lovely (type) fragrance from Rustic Escentuals . A light, and pleasant feminine scent. No discoloration so far after 2 weeks of cure and scent is holding well. Because this one is a light scent, I would advise using 1 oz fragrance per pound of soap.

 

 

 Please be sure to go to SoapCalc.net to run the numbers through again to be sure the numbers are accurate for this recipe (typos can happen).

Making Luffa Soaps - Cold Process with Recipe - by Bonny Bubbles

Posted on March 10, 2017 | 0 comments

Luffa / Loofah Soap Recipe

making luffa soap

 

 This soap recipe is based on a 2 pound (32 oz) batch. Please be sure to go to SoapCalc.net to run the numbers through again to be sure the numbers are accurate for this recipe. Basic soap making knowledge and proper safety gear/precautions is necessary as this is not a tutorial.

If you decide to substitute ANY of the oils or butters, you must run it through the soap calculator as this will change the amount of lye/water you will need. 

We have this soap superfatted at 5% (you can adjust that if you wish).  Of course you do not need to use luffas if you just wish to make a basic soap loaf without them. I like my lye and oils to be in the temperature range of 80-100 F. 

 

 

Olive Oil             8.96 oz            (28%)

Palm Oil             8.32 oz           (26%)

Coconut Oil        5.76 oz           (18%)

Mango Butter     3.84 oz           (12%)

Avocado oil        3.20 oz           (10%)

Castor Oil           1.92 oz           ( 6 %)

These are all measured by weight

------------------------------------

Water    9 oz   (remaining needed liquid comes from your coconut milk - so 12 oz of liquid is needed in total for this size recipe)

Coconut Milk (liquid)      3 oz   by weight  ( add this to your melted oils before adding your lye water)

Lye/ Sodium Hydroxide     4.41 oz

These are all measured by weight

------------------------------------

Optional  Additives

Sodium Lactate            .8 oz  -by weight      (2.5% of your oil weight)

Colloidal oat flour          2 TBSP

Jojoba beads          1/2  - 1 tsp  per pound of soap - it's really up to you how much you like.

Essential oil or fragrance    .5 - 1 oz  - by weight   (per pound of soap; so for this recipe 1 oz - 2 oz, your preference)

Luffas / loofahs     8-10 pcs    about 1 - 1.5 inches thick.  Amount recipe will make depends on the varience in luffa vs. mold size as well as soap thickness desired.

~~~ This soap may need up to 48 hrs to unmold so it's hard enough without damaging the soap.  Allow to cure for 4-6 weeks and then enjoy!
