egyptian musk & sandalwood

The Egyptian Musk Sandalwood soap recipe is heavenly!!! Mostly it is the Egyptian Musk. That bar was absolutely hands down our best selling scent. Unfortunately, there are about 20 scents with this exact name. If you ever find that elusive scent, you can delete the Sandalwood and add about half more scent with the Egyptian Musk. The musk scent is probably 50% stronger than the Sandalwood.

When making this soap, consider that this musky fragrance of any kind is the worse scent you can get regarding the added chemicals and parabans needed to manufacturer it in the lab. Having said that, we had a customer in the store that only wanted the natural soaps, we showed her how the basket labels indicted which were all natural, half natural and half synthetic, and all synthetic. Needless to say, after she smelled lots of them, she left with the toxic musk – we even pointed out that it wasn’t a natural scent!  And this happened alot! People wanted natural, and left with the aromatic and perfume type scents.

Egyptian Musk Sandalwood soap recipe:

  • This is base recipe #2, or you can choose a different base here:
  • 51.2 oz Olive oil or an Olive/Canola blend
  • 6.2 oz coconut oil
  • 6.2 oz palm oil
  • 23.4 oz water
  • 8.6 oz lye crystals
  • Scent:
  • 3 T Egyptian Musk fragrance oil
  • 2 T sandalwood fragrance oil
  • For color, I used to use:
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder, mixed up in one cup of soap base first, then added to rest of the base
  • 1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder in another one cup of soap base, mixed thoroughly, then drizzled on top in order to make a swirl.

Below is one version of a Egyptian Musk Sandalwood soap recipe, with 2 scents represented with 2 colors, very pretty:

The below image is another great way to make your soap, with no color. The scent itself would perhaps in nature not have a color, so this would work well too.

I thought that this was a theme-type bar, with the name “Egyptian Musk & Sandalwood”, so I attempted to keep the color reminiscent of sand, (from Egypt) and the swirl was representative of the Sandalwood. My soap is at the top of this page.
