Ombre Wall Pour Soap

062017_21359wp3During the Ombre Great Cakes Soap Challenge, I made an extra batch and filmed the process.  I created a really short video on how I made the soap. :)

 

**** RECIPE ****
Olive Oil – 42%
Coconut Oil – 25%
Shea Butter – 10%
Sunflower Oil – High Oleic – 10%
Cocoa Butter – 5%
Avocado Oil – 8%
Superfat – 6%

Lye & Water – use a soap calculator like the one at Majestic Mtn Sage (http://goo.gl/7hH5Vw)

I used a 31% lye solution (water = 2.2 x lye)

COLORS:

I used Amy Warden’s method of dissolving indigo in oil.  You can read her blog post here – http://goo.gl/Z3qUAB

I mixed 1 teaspoon of indigo powder into 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil and allowed that to sit for a few hours (actually overnight).

Essential Oil Blend:
Rosemary – 2 parts
Peppermint – 1 part
