During this class we will be discussing: -How to formulate a simple recipe using a soap calculator -Fragrance safety, including how to use a fragrance calculator -Water Discounting -Super Fatting We will also be making more soap using the drop swirl technique. For this you will need all of the equipment from the first class and: -More oils* (if you're filling your Brambleberry mold, you will need 33 ounces of oils) -More lye* (these are sold in 1-2lb containers, you won't need much) -Distilled Water (there should be plenty left from the first class) -At least 2 colorants* -Fragrance oil (2-3oz)* -A plastic or stainless measuring cup for each color used (you can use the main one for one of them)* * I recommend purchasing the Lots of Lather pre-mixed oil kit from Brambleberry: https://www.brambleberry.com/shop-by-product/ingredients/bases/lots-of-lather-quick-mix/V900008.html?cgid=3-base_ing_pro#start=1 *Lye I recommend getting from Essential Depot, Brambleberry, Wholesale Supplies Plus, or Nurture soap *For our purposes, I recommend using mica as a colorant to start. Things like clays have more of a learning curve. I recommend Nurture Soap, Mad Mica's, Brambleberry, or Wholesale Supplies Plus for mica. *Fragrance oils I recommend getting from Nurture Soap, Brambleberry, Essential Depot, or Wholesale Supplies Plus. Please note that anything with a vanilla content WILL discolor your soap to a brown, so be sure to check that when you pull up the listing. *Measuring cups. I usually get mine from The Dollar Tree. You want plastic code #5 for plastic. Or, you can use stainless steel.
