My best friend asked me to make her some peach scented soap. This is what it looks like!!!

I am pretty sure it was the FO, another Cierra Candles FO-Juicy Peach- it smells SO good in B&B stuff :drool: but obviously sucks a CP.

I stick blended the crap out of it for 30 minutes, everytime I stopped the power, within sceonds it seperated and looked like this. I know that my temps were on the lower side a bit lower than 100, (I even tried heating it up a bit in the micro... hell what did I have to loose the batch was pretty much toast at that point) this was a 1# batch I was trying not to waste too much if something like this happened...:undecided

I did add sugar and salt in the H2O before the lye...could that have something to do with it?? I had never tried these before.

Thanks for letting me vent, and any suggestions you may have, I am all ears.

Did the FO say it was soap safe? (n/m the website says SS for "skin-safe for soap and bath & body products") There is a difference between being safe for skin and being tested for use in soap, though.

This isn't the first peach I've heard of being a bear in soap -- anyone have experience a soap friendly peach?

Thanks gals,

I knew that I took my chances on the FO, and I don't ever see very much regarding Cierra Candles and saoping...so lesson learned...again.

e- I guess I will have to learn to HP, it funny because that thought crossed my mind for a fleeting second when I realized "I don't know the first thing about HP-ing" At least I have that "beautiful" ricing pic so others can see. But the color in the soap came out nice for peach.

Off to go read...thanks again

I'm no expert but I reliazed you may not be able to use cierra's fo's for cp only because they do not state stuff like cp tested or soy wax tested. I mainly use their fo's for everything else candles, mp soaps, lotions but thats it. I use rustic esscentuals or bitter creek they have great fo's! Very strong.:D

Read up on crockpot and oven. Either might have saved the batch. I only mention this as many don't realize that you can plod on and save the batch with HP and have it turn out just fine.

Eugenia thanks for the reminder. I was on the verge of tossing some soap on a stick when I read this - I'm running now to get out my crock pot since I realize that I can rescue seized soap that way too!

Yes, HP works for seized as well. I much prefer that to trying to slam into a mold and end up with a rebatch anyway.
