2  Challenge 2: All Natural Invigorating Hemp soap! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by neonpirate on: April 23, 2009 03:05:25 PM
So, I didn't see ANYONE post for this!
I totally made my entry and wanted to post it either way.

This soap is awesome! I took it on vacation with my boyfriend and I and it stays really hard if you give it a nice pat dry when you're going to store it..
Smells awesome with Brambleberry's vim & vigor essecial oil.

I created this item to start out my all natural line of soaps, to take with me when I have a booth at Seattle's Hempfest 2009! I am guilty of being an activist, and attended the last 3. The booths are cheap, the crowd is awesome, and hopefully enough hippies will dig my natural soaps.

I made the recipe up in soap calc, and it's awesome. Really love this bar. It is:

coconut oil 40%
olive oil 25%
hemp oil 20%
mango butter 6%
Castor oil 6%
sunflower oil 3%

and to color it I used kelp powder.

the hardness is 40
cleansing 27
conditioning 54
bubbly 32
creamy 19
iodine 69
and the ins is 155

3  3 Recent Batches of Soap! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by neonpirate on: March 17, 2009 12:25:10 AM
I've been on a role now that i have a nice big kitchen to work in, as opposed to my tiny old trailer's "kitchen".

This is my "Spicy Pear & Almond" Soap, green with black swirls.
I has olive oil, coconut oil, and mango butter.

A friend was over and this is her blend of scents. Turkish Mocha, Pumpkin Spice, and Almond. It smells like the most delicious "seasonal" flavor they sell around thanksgiving at coffee places.

This one was suggested by my sister, who looooves lush. She wanted something that smelled like the seasonal scent "Snowcap", so i tried to imitate it. I've never smelled it, though, and all i had to go off was that it's Almonds, Cream, and there is cocoa butter in the mix as well. I added ginseng and seaweed extract, and made this a shampoo bar. I haven't yet tried it on my hair.

4  Pear & Almond soap! *Question & New pictures!* in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by neonpirate on: March 12, 2009 10:39:51 PM
Hey everyone! I've posted a few times around, mostly about my trails and mostly errors. haha! Last time i posted i had brown soap poo out the mold. hahahah!

BUT! I finally have a wonderful batch to show you! I dont know how the bars are going to be because i made this recipe on soap calc 9. I based it off one i saw elsewhere.. Any idea on how the bars will be?

31.2 oz olive
12 oz coconut oil
3.8 mango butter
.9 beeswax
18.2 water
6.6 oz lye

I ran it through 2 times just to make sure. haha.

It's scented with Pear and almond, and it's light minty green with black swirls.

These are right after pouring! I hope it's as wonderful as it looks right now.
I guess taking a week or so break from soap making to MOVE into my much bigger house was a great thing.

I really took my time making this batch, though, more than usual. I actually have a sink now so i could put the lye in the sink to cool. My microwave works now, so it was easier to warm up my solid oils. Pretty much, it was just the smoothest batch to make, EVER! haha.
