How to make blackberry sage soap naturally. There is no such thing as blackberry essential oil, but there is sage essential oil. So if a soapmaker tells you that the blackberry anything soap is all natural – they are lying. I see this a lot in the soap world. This bar was probably in the top ten of best sellers. It had a unique scent blend and was a pretty bar.
I bought a blackberry sage fragrance oil blend and it was a good selling bar. I think the two reasons for this is, 1) the scent was an earthy scent that both men and women liked, and 2) people often select soap on the color so it will match their bathroom. A lot of people must have had green accented bathrooms.

- the base as usual, adding green and purple soap base separately, and mixing gently
- then adding a layer of purple soap base
- then a layer of the untinted soap base
- slicing up previously made green and purple bars to create little swirly pieces and embedding these into the still warm soap base
