You can also use this cherry almond soap recipe as a cherry cola recipe, which is what I did. I loved the smell and color of this soap, plus loving cherry-cola soda, but this was not a big seller in the store. Types of scents seems to entirely depend on who your customer base is and where you are located. So although it wasn’t a big seller, it had a beautiful rich deep color and the scent held very well.

Again, this cherry almond soap recipe cannot be made with an essential oil because it does not exist. No such thing as cherry essential oil, or cola essential oil or almond essential oil (almond extract, but not for soap purposes).
Color will be a big deal with this soap as well. A cherry or cherry blossom soap generally is a pastel to medium pink shade, maybe some white. Meanwhile a cherry almond soap tends to be pastel with perhaps a little more tan or pink or even black. Then a cherry cola tends to take on darker colors, from pink to dark pink with black and red swirls.
