While not 100% Olive Oil, it still has a high amount of Olive Oil to make it as luxurious. I decided to add some Coconut Oil and Castor Oil for some bubbles. I like bubbles in my bars and have even read that if you add sugar to your lye water you can get some wonderful bubbles! I have yet to try that trick :)
Now in doing my research for my bastile soap, I kept coming across many soapers doing a water discount. This is when you lower your water content in your recipe so that your soap can trace faster and also cure faster as well. I have always been a little nervous to try water discounts...too chicken to try since I am afraid I may be faced with a picky fragrance that may act up on me and just set too fast. But this time around I decided to jump in with both feet and give it a try!I decided to use Bramble Berry's
I was surprise at how smooth my soap is. I keep picking up my bars and just smiling like a crazy fool :)
I LOVE MY BASTILE SOAP and can't wait until it's fully cured and ready to use. Just in time for my birthday!
Here are some more pics:
It smells amazing by the way. I am usually not so big on lavender scents but ever since I have started soaping I have come to enjoy it.
