Sweet Meyer Lemon Scented Coco-Macadamia CP Soap Recipe

Summer is finally here and all I can think of is sitting on the porch sipping a large glass of lemonade. If time will not allow you to enjoy a lemonade then you may want to create this Meyer Lemon Scented Coco-Macadamia Cold Processed Soap Log from Aussie Soap Supplies.

In this ITP (In the Pot) swirl recipes uses BrambleBerry Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance and Lemon Drop Pop Mica. If you do not know what ITP process means is that you actually take a portion of the soap in which you add the color, then you taken that portion and simply poured back into the main pot. Then colors mix themselves as you pour the batch from the main soap pot into the muld. Aussie Soap Supplies recommends using slab or log molds are best for this kind of soap, though vertical moulds can look really nice too. They also mention that the most important thing with ITP style coloring is to avoid overtracing the soap. If it is too thick, it won't swirl well and will clump instead of flow. Also important is to use a fragrance or essential Oil that doesn't accelerate trace.
