I am sure we all have ordered fragrance or essential oils that we intend to use sometime.
This was my 'sometime' for Jasmine.
I googled to find some pictures of the Jasmine flower to inspire me in making this soap.
Most Jasmine flowers have white petals.
Some Jasmine petals had a bit of yellow in the center of them.
There were a few Jasmine that were yellow.
Then there was Jasmine that were white & with the Stamens that was yellow.
I decided to make this a vegan soap. The oils I used were:
and Sunflower Oil
I used Arizona rain water
and Jasmine Fragrance Oil from 'Essential Depot'.
The soap was at very light trace, and I could have waited a bit longer before I poured, but decided to just go ahead.
I did a layering pour where I poured a line of soap down the center of the mold, and then poured a different color down the center of the first color I poured and so on, until all was poured but a bit that I dribbled on to top it off. I spooned the edges toward the middle of the soap.
I added some sugar sprinkles on top and a bit of glitter.
It comes out of the mold very soft, but hardens up great in thefour week curing time!
This is what the final bar looked like.
This was a four pound batch of soap, and
I used about 4 Tbsp on Jasmine Fragrance Oil. It was pretty strong. If you want a more mellow scent I would suggest using less, if you were to buy the fragrance from Essential Depot.
Have a great Monday!
