Lye solution 35%,  Lye Temp 100

100 grams of oil used for initial single bar soap tests.

Method: Pulse stick blender in 10 burst series. evaluate if more needed. Typically only need  20 bursts for unscented soap.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Acceleration: None. Slow and easy. Would consider water discount with no problems. 20 stick blender pulses and it still poured smoothly and leveled the top. 

Discoloration: slight ivory

 

Fragrance Morphing: None noted

Fragrance Fade: None Noted

 

Notes: this soaped VERY easily. 

 

Potential blending ideas: Anything with wood notes, other fruit.
