For a great fall inspired soap, I paired fruit preserves and oatmeal, and came up with a really great bar of soap. The lather is fab. And the soap is sooooo mild. Warm with just a hint of fruit.
You can use your favorite basic soap recipe and add fresh fruit puree in at trace and blend well.
I added 3oz of berries pureed in 40oz of oils. And 2 TBL of finely ground oats.
Tip: use fresh or frozen fruit, not jarred preserves or jam..... I tried it CP and the soap stayed soft due to the citric acid in the fruit preserves. I won't make that mistake again.
For my liquid I used some creamy goats milk and a bit of Arizona rain water, my fav.
I added strawberry FO just to give it a bit of a fruity scent, as the fresh fruit scent does not come through the soaping process. You can do this Hot Process or Cold Process. Pictured is my HP batch.
