Batch #5 – Sensual Sandalwood and Hemp Soap – Samples

My friend Chelsea requested a batch of soap to take with her to Resonance, a Burning Man inspired event held in Wichita, KS every year. Originally, she was supposed to be in the kitchen with me, but that was not the case this time. She’s a busy girl. However, cold process takes time to cure and I had to get these done if she intended to keep her hippy friends clean.

I found this recipe on Pine Meadows, including the fragrance oil I used for this project. I chose a recipe with hemp oil, because nothing says hippy like hemp.

According to Pine Meadows, “Sensual Sandalwood is accented with essential oils of patchouli, cedarwood and amyris with a touch of indonesian sandalwood.” Sandalwood, patchouli, and hemp. Perfect for a Burning Man inspired hippy gathering.

After cutting the soap into bars to cure for a couple weeks, I cut them into thirds for weekend-sized samples. This is my fifth batch of soap. It has a very light, woodsy scent and a gentle lather.
