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!
Collect Needed Items:
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.
