New for February!

This month we’re excited to introduce our latest in-house production: Quick Mix Oils! Quick Mix Oils are pre-measured, pre-mixed base oils meant for cold process soap making. It saves quite a few steps and a substantial amount of time, plus these recipes are Soap Queen tested to eliminate any guessing. Check out the debut mix, Lots of Lather, and all of the other latest products we’ve added below. Are there any items that you would like to see Bramble Berry carry? Let us know in the comments.

Starting off with Quick Mix Oils! We’re launching the Lots of Lather mix first, but keep an eye out for more recipes in the near future.

    Anne-Marie I am sooooooooooooooo excited to see the heat resistant bags! I’d asked about those this summer and am super excited! Next order will have those in the basket! Thanks so much!!

  3. Sly says:

    I’m looking forward to trying some of your new products.
    Any chance you will ever have the Banana FO in 2 or 4 oz size? (Buying 10 lbs is way out of my range for my personal soaping needs.). I hope so & will keep my fingers crossed! Thanks!

  4. Jennifer says:

    To make a small suggestion, have you considered selling pre-measured lye to go with those pre-mixed oils? That would be a great option for beginners who aren’t ready to invest in a scale. Include a simple recipe, and it would be a great kit. I think buying a scale is cost-prohibitive to many new soapers and can turn them off from trying it.

    Is the deodorant additive added to the water stage, oil stage or cool down stage?

  6. KeMira says:

    I was so excited to see pre-mixed CP soap base today! Ive been hoping you guys would carry this someday because this makes the whole CP soapmaking process so much easier. Id like to order all my soapmaking products from brambleberry in the future if possible and this added one more product I dont have to order somewhere else.

    Keep up the good work guys!

    P.S. Very impatiently waiting for the new book Ann Marie!

  7. Rachel says:

    The mixes are a fantastic idea! LOVE it!!!!! It can be very time consuming to measure out all of the oils, etc!

  8. Keni says:

    Question. I am new to soap making and just recently started with Cold Process soaps. I like the idea of the quick mix bags. How much fragrance oil should you use with these bags? For example, the Lots of Lather 33 oz bag states 4.7 oz of lye and 11 oz of water in possibly a 10″ Silicone Loaf Mold. Does the amount of essential oil (or fragrance oil) matter? If so how do I calculate that with these pre-mixed bags?

    • Hi Keni!

      The easiest way to figure out how much fragrance oil to use is to the fragrance calculator. All you do is enter the amount of soap (water + lye + oils = recipe yield weight) you are making and it will pop up with an amount for you.

      Fragrance Calculator: http://www.brambleberry.com/Pages/Fragrance-Calculator.aspx

      For instance, if you were to make the entire bag of Lots of Lather, you would use about 3 ounces of fragrance. Here is a quick an easy reference guide that I like to go by:

      Cold Process Soap – .7 oz per pound
      Melt and Pour Soap – .25 oz per pound
      Rebatch – .3 oz per pound
      Lotions – .2 oz per pound
      Liquid Soap – .3 oz per pound
      Salts – .3 oz per pound
      Candles- .5 oz per pound

      I hope this helps! :)

    Will Brambleberry come out with Quick mix oils without canola/ sunflower etc?
    A more traditional blend? I am still a hobbyist soap maker & I do have my own recipes
    But it will be easier if we have a basic blend of Olive ,coconut, Palm,castor,so I dont need to purchase Gallon size of each separate oil?

    Thanks
    Pooja
