Tarragon and Bergamot Soap

Made with Coconut oil, Olive oil, Rice Bran oil, Palm oil, Mango Butter and Castor oil.

Scented with Bergamot and Tarragon fragrance oil.

I planned to do another flower batch hence the piping bag.

The saponification took too long to thicken to the right piping consistency.

Changed my plan from piping to pouring. Had a layer of white and alternately poured pink and green in two rows.

Covered the pink and green with a top layer of white then I drizzle some pink and green batter.

Swirled the colors around randomly.

Poured the leftover pink and green in a lego mold.  Come visit this blog again to see what I plan for these little guys

Still have some more green and pink batter, so I poured them in a small oval mold and swirled each pink with green and vice versa.

This batch took two days to get hard enough to be removed from the mold.

The ends were still tacky and did not come out of the mold.

Some batter in the ends stayed behind.  I tried fixing the loaf and it still have gaps but I was able to get 5 bars that were not damage and 4 with cracks.

Thank you for visiting and come back to see what I will do with the lego guys.

  1. Thank you for this post - and for keeping in the part about trouble with the unmoulding. With the recipe I use - high in shea butter - it takes between 4 - 6 days before I can unmould my soaps from a silicone loaf mould cleanly, and I use sodium lactate!If I left it any longer, I'm not sure my cutter would cope. It has only taken me four years to acquire the patience to wait this long!!! All the best, Jo
