Whipped Soap Tutorial from Magdoline

Have you ever heard of Whipped Soap? If you like to try to create these beautiful soaps that actually floats then check out this Whipped Soap tutorial from Magdoline (the original post was from Bittercreek). 

According to the author of  Bittercreek says that she had alot of fun making these soaps. One important factor in making these types of soaps is that you will need a heavy duty stand mixer such as a Kitchen Aid brand or a similiar brand.  The author used an inherited 1960's Sunbeam because she did not want to get her good mixer messy.  I would bet that now her Sunbeam mixer is now dedicated to making soap only.  So it may be a good idea to try to find a mixer that you can use soley for your soap making needs.  It should have a whipping attachment. Anyone have any suggestions on where to find a good inexpensive mixer to use for this process?

I've made whipped soap a few times and used my regular electric mixer (the handheld type). Works just fine You need to be very careful during the whipping process as you are pouring lye into your melted oils while whipping, so make sure you're not pouring the lye directly into the rotation. Whipped soap needs to cure for at least 6 weeks because there is no gelphase involved. Also, make sure your percentage of solid fats vs liquid oils is somewhere around 70-80%.

Thanks Cocobong Soaps for your suggestions.

I have never made whipped soap before so your information will help me when I make my first batch.
