Making A Sandalwood & Orange Cold Process Soap
If you have never tried Sandalwood & Orange together then you have been missing out! Today I am sharing how to make a cold process soap using a Sandalwood Hydrosol and Orange essential oil. I used an in the pot swirl with a mica drop. All of the colors in this soap are more on the earthy side with just a hint of gold. Perfect for Fall in my humble opinion:)
The soap batter recipe I use is as follows:
Sweet Almond Oil 5%
Castor Oil 5%
Rice Bran Oil 5%
Cocoa Butter 15%
Coconut Oil 30%
Olive Oil 40%
Water as % of oils 35%
I used Orange essential oil at a 4% usage rate and also used 3.7oz of Sandalwood Hydrosol(so I reduced my water by 3.7oz).
