This Jasmine and Blackberry soap recipe was just one of the scent creations we made. I really think that creating scent blends and colors for each bar was most of the fun!
jasmine and blackberry soap recipe, aka jazzberry
- Basic #2 Recipe: (other recipes here)
51.2 oz Olive oil or Olive/Canola oil blend
6.2 oz Coconut Oil
6.2 oz Palm Oil
8.6 oz lye crystals
for this scented bar, add:
2 1/2 T blackberry fragrance oil
- 3 1/2 T jasmine fragrance oil
- 1/4 tsp ultramarine violet colorant, mixed in 1 cup of base first
- 1/4 tsp black iron oxide powder, mixed in 1 cup of base first
NOTE: you can cut this recipe in halves or quarters to make smaller batches. You don’t have to use any Canola Oil, but if you use all Canola Oil your soap will develop spots. A Canola and Olive oil blend will help cut the costs.
The soap below perfectly symbolizes what a Jasmine and Blackberry soap recipe should look like. With the purple for the blackberry and the white and gold for the jasmine – as those flowers come in red, white or yellow!
And another way to display the scents in your soap! Beautiful layering representing the scents, plus the addition of lavender and calendula petals.
In a fun and bright way to show the scents, there’s the jasmine on the top, with a very pretty layer representing the blackberry.
In case you are wondering what a jasmine flower looks like, here is an image of white jasmine flowers – so tiny! The many stages of turning these tiny flowers into a scent is what makes it cost up to $1,500 an ounce for real jasmine essential oil.
about the scents and layering:
Both the blackberry scent and jasmine scents are fragrance oils. There is an essential oil for jasmine, but extremely expensive, like $100 for a 5-ml bottle. The blackberry fragrance is about $8 – $15 for 2 oz – shop around – prices vary a lot!
Technically you could use a blackberry essential oil, but finding a true natural essential oil may be difficult. Most blackberry scented anything out there will be from a synthetic fragrance oil. More on making an essential oil here on Wikihow.
Customers like decorative soaps like the one above. The above method would have been a 2 part soap making process, with the purple layer made one day, and the swirly white part the next day or later. You can attempt layering it on the first day with the same batch, but no matter how careful you try to spoon the next layer, it seems to apply weight and ruin your straight line.
