Here are some of the guides that are particularly useful to soap makers:
Fragrance Class - Gives you lots of information about fragrances in general. There is a class on essential oils on their site, too.
Fragrance Mixing Ideas - This is a long list of fragrance mixes that will give you a new unique scent.
Fragrances Tested in CP Soap Results - This is a list of all of their fragrances and how they hold up in cold process soap. Some other suppliers offer this as well, and it is a MUST really, but I like that this one is in a PDF that I can download and save to my computer.
They have a bunch of other PDF's from beginning soapmaking to oil properties and many recipes all for free. I suggest perusing their website.
Here are the fragrances I have to play with:
Down Home Country
Rum Ripened Raisin
Sweet Potato and Brown Sugar
Jammin Rock Candy
The Perfect Man
I am going to be using these fragrances in some tutorials I'll be posting here or in my newsletter. You can sign up for the monthly newsletter here: Subscribe to our newsletter. I have some ideas already but I thought I would ask you what you would like to see me make an have a little giveaway.
What scent do you think I should start with and what would you like the soap to look like (colors, techniques, inspiration, CP or MP)? Whichever one I choose to do, I will post a step by step tutorial, send you a completed soap from that batch and a 4 oz bottle of fragrance randomly chosen from the list above from Nature's Garden.
Post your requests below. It's easy...I have no Captcha or post approvals to wait on.
