New at BB: Spring Edition

Spring has sprung and we’ve steaming full speed ahead with product development, planning lots of fun tutorials, and of course, the release of my upcoming book (eeeek)! Take a peek at some of the exciting new products Bramble Berry just added to our line.

Pre-ordering is now available for Soap Crafting, my book set to publish in August. Pre-order now and receive exclusive access to two special episodes (read: ‘going to be paid episodes‘) of Soap Queen TV where I demonstrate recipes directly from the book.

Soap Crafting: Step-by-Step Techniques for Making 31 Unique Cold-Process Soaps

If you’re a cold process soapmaker who is interested in skipping time-consuming recipe development (or just skip the mixing each and every time) and would rather dive right into the soapmaking, Quick Mix Oils are for you. Quick Mix Oils are pre-mixed, pre-tested based oil recipes that only require you to heat them up and add lye water. We’ve even calculated the lye amounts for you! Last month we debuted the Lots of Lather recipe, and this month we’ve added the Basic and Swirl recipes to the mix. Check ’em out!

Stephanie Tourles’s recipes in her book Hands on Healing Remedies are easy to prepare from readily available ingredients, and the author ssays will soothe common ailments from backaches and blisters to insect bites and insomnia.

These adorable little wax tart molds may only measure 1.25 X 0.5 inches, but they sure do bring the cuteness. While these molds are the perfect size for wax tarts, I can see these as cute little soaps piled in the guest bathroom as well or on tables as dessert (yes, the molds work for chocolate too!) =)

It’s true. We’ve done it. The perfect non-bleeding red for melt and pour! This color block will knock your socks off by how easy it is to use. First time using a color block? Click here for a quick video demo.

You’ve been loving our Column Mold, so we crafted a stabilizing base for larger-scale production. It comes in two sizes: 4 and 12 mold. Plus, we’ve added a rectangle cavity option to our 12 bar silicone mold line, and just got in silicone liners for our 2 lb wood mold.

And finally, we have just introduced a brand new Blueberry Fragrance Oil. It’s a true blueberry with supporting notes of marionberry, leafy green and light musk that help it to stick well in cold process, melt and pour, lotions and bath fizzies.

      You are so going to love them! It makes it super easy to throw a batch together without having to measure your oils. And, we are hoping to put out some new mixes over the next year, so be on the look out for those. =)

    Will you ever offer a silicone liner for the 4 lb wood mold? I LOVE the liners for the 2 lb and 5 lb and only hope the 4lb liner is in the works!!!!

    Thank you for all these great new products – I love them!!

    Apologies, as I don’t understand what wax tarts are used for – can you educate me?

    I would like to make a berry CP soap. I have strawberry, blackberry, & sun ripe Raspberry FO (although still not sure about using raspberry, with the acceleration in CP).

    Which Blueberry would you recommend: your new Blueberry FO or LE Blueberry delight? Which one discolors the CP less? If put in a blue color, would that eventually turn to a muddy blue due to discoloration or would the dark color “mask” the discoloration?

      Hi Sly!

      Wax tarts are a product that you can melt in a candle burner/warmer that release the scent and are a bit safer to use then candles. We have a few in the office and just can’t get enough of them. Here is a quick-and-easy wax tart project that we made for the sample of the month to give you a visual explanation:

      Featured Sample Idea Sheet for March 2013:

      If you are wanting to add a Blueberry Fragrance to your blend, I’d probably go with the normal Blueberry Fragrance Oil as it only discolors to a light tan and you can definitely work with that. If you are worried about the discoloration, I would suggest making a small test batch first.

      I hope this helps! Keep us updated on your berry cold process soap, we want to know how it turns out. =)
