When I got my last order from Brambleberry, the sample was Vetyver (based on the essential oil, but it's a FO)...  I fell completely in love with it and knew I wanted to use it for my next batch!  I sell my soap at a local beer store, so this scent is the perfect manly scent that still has female appeal.

Lumberjacked (aka "I'm a Lumberjack and I'm ok"):

80 oz pomace Olive oil
40 oz Coconut oil
40 oz Palm oil
22.44 oz lye
33 oz water
14 oz coconut milk
3 oz beer syrup (I used a beer made out of pine needles, and boiled it until it was a thick syrup)

9 oz Vetyver FO
1 oz Pine EO
Green Mica
Dried Rosemary






I'm going to do some upcycled packaging and get a used plaid shirt from Goodwill to wrap the bars in, and then I'll do a paper tag and attach it with twine.  My whole house smells so manly, I think this one should do really well (and my bf can't wait to try it!).

Thanks!  It seems like 1000 years since I made this batch haha!  Looking back, I stopped using coconut milk in my soap about six months ago.  It adds great lather, but at least for me, it also really accelerated trace.  These days I'm doing 50% aloe vera juice subbed for water, that adds the moisture and lather without messing with trace.  I still love that scent Smiley
