The jasmine soap recipe at the store was a hit and miss type of bar regarding sales. We liked the jasmine scented soap yet it didn’t sell that well. At an out of town market to sell soap, the Jasmine sold out! Not sure what that meant, lol, we kept making this scented soap. For this jasmine soap recipe you will have to use a fragrance oil, as the essential oil is astronomical in price! If you see an all natural Jasmine bar for $3 – $6, then that soap maker is a liar and is using a fragrance. A 5-ml bottle can be $100!! yet the fragrance oil will be $8 for 4 oz.
I think the pink is perfect for this type of jasmine soap recipe scent. Because jasmine is usually a white flower, often yellow, and sometimes red, I had made mine white with yellow and red swirls.
Jasmine soap recipe:
- 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 jasmine fragrance oil
1/4 tsp red colorant, in 1 cup of base first
- 1/4 tsp yellow colorant, in 1 cup of base first
- or try any color scheme you like
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.
Here is another option to coloring your Jasmine soap. This bar is very pretty and feminine, with a solid pink layer on top and a spotty white layer under. Also pretty with the name embedded in.
Because the jasmine scent can be almost anything, from an untinted bar, to tinting to the same colors of the flowers. The round bars below could represent that range of jasmine flower colors.
About the essential oil:
Jasmine essential oil has a rich and sultry aroma reputed as a romantic scent. Jasmine is part of the olive family, yet it’s scent is extracted, not pressed, like other essential oils.
To get the most scent from this tiny flower, it is picked at night. It takes 10 pounds of flowers to make one 5-ml bottle. You can buy diluted versions of expensive oils like this, which is great, then you can afford to have a bottle. Some of these expensive essential oils don’t dilute as well as others. Meaning that I had a diluted Rose essential oil that was strong, due to the normal strength of the essential oil. Yet I had a same 5% diluted Sandalwood that was very weak.
Jasmine Essential Oil Uses:
- Apply 2–4 drops directly to the skin or add a few drops to a neutral lotion and massage onto skin.
- Rub a few drops onto wrists or the nape of the neck as a unique perfume
- Can diffuse to calm your environment
- Add a few drops to a DIY oil treatment for hair mask to nourish your hair and scalp
