A heady blend of lavender, herbs and aromatic woods summons the atmosphere of an old apothecary. Chamomile, rosemary and sage awaken the earthiness of Lavender whilst touches of cedar and sandalwood in the base are enhanced by clove and lavandin.
This fragrance oil is infused with clove, cedarwood and lavandin essential oils.
Cold Process Soap Performance
|Acceleration||Discolouration||Separation||Oil Temp||Lye Water Temp|
We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter came to an emulsion quickly but we had to stick blend and hand stir for a little over 5 minutes to reach a thin trace. The lye water and oils were a little cooler than our normal soaping temperature, which may have slowed trace. After 24 hours the soap was still very soft so we allowed the soap to stay in the mold for another 2 days. Once we removed the soap from the mold we noticed it was still very soft, and probably could have used an additional day in the mold to harden a little more. There was no discoloration and the scent had a pleasant herbal quality with the sage notes becoming slightly more dominant. We did not see any signs of the soap going into a gel phase. After 30 days the scent became more balanced and is pleasantly mild. There was no discoloration. Due to the slow trace and no discoloration this would be a great scent for intricate swirls using vivid colors.
