Palm Free Champagne Cold Process Soap

When this fragrance arrived, it begged to be soaped immediately!  Its a bubbly, fresh and slightly gingerish fragrance.  It was a dream to soap, and actually slowed trace, so if you want to be creative, this batch will give you time to play!

Champagne Fragrance is also an excellent blending scent, suggestions that work well in cold process soap are:

What you need for this recipe 

Method:

For how to make soap from Scratch, please see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions Page

If you are a beginner, we recommend making this soap just one colour.  If you are a little more experienced, you can follow the instructions link to "In the Pot Swirling". 

  • Prepare all ingredients and set our equipment

  • Set aside a medium heat safe jug for the pink colour In this case, we used Brite Pink for CP to colour the background, as well as the swirl colour

  • Bring soap to thin trace, and then remove approximately 1 - 2 cups of soap (I use a 500 or 750ml microwave save jug)

  • Colour the main pot of soap with a pale shade of the Brite Pink for CP - taking care not to over trace

  • Colour the soap in the jug to the desired colour - darker than the soap in the main soap pot

  • Add the fragrance to the main pot and mix thorough - keeping it at light trace 

  • Now pour the darker colour soap batter in one pour straight into the main pot - you can pour in a circle, but NO MIXING - PUT AWAY THAT STICK BLENDER!

  • Immediately pour the whole contents of your soap pot into the mould

  • If you wish to adjust the colouring on the surface, now is the time to finish this using a chopstick or spatula to drag the colour into the pattern you desire

  • See full instructions for In the Pot Swirling Soap here

  • Cover and insulate

  • Unmould and slice as usual

    If using "Add to trolley" you will also need to purchase Olive Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) and Distilled water from the supermarket
