I could not be more excited about launching with Nurture this oil blend. It’s perfect for really REALLY new soap makers who would like to take some of the guesswork out of measuring and even more advanced soap makers who want to cut back on batch prep time or experiment with a new recipe without having to buy bulk oils.
Olive Oil: Basically, the most standard soap making oil of all time and for good reason! It keeps your soap super runny for a long amount of time so making intricate designs is easy AND it’s very mild on the skin.
Organic, RSPO Certified Palm Oil: Environmental impact and sustainable sourcing is very important to me, so while there is palm oil available on the market that adds to deforestation, the palm oil in all bars from Royalty Soaps and this oil blend is USDA certified organic and RSPO certified sustainable so we can feel great about using it! Palm adds a lot of stability to your soap lather and makes a rock hard soap bar. It’s also a great alternative for animal fats such as lard and tallow if you’re interested in vegan-friendly soaps!
Coconut Oil: One of my absolute favorite soap making oils because of sooo many things, but I’ll just name a quick few. It makes a WHITE bar of soap, creates huge, fluffy bubbles, and it gets you feeling clean and eliminates that somewhat slimy feeling that olive oil creates! It’s really easy to find locally at your supermarket and can be used for tons of different bath and body products!
Castor Oil: It’s alllllllll about the bubbles!! Castor oil makes rich, thick, creamy, soft bubbles and a little goes a long long way! It’s also a relatively inexpensive oil so you get a lot of bang for your buck!
Sweet Almond Oil: This oil has very similar properties to olive oil and if you’re in a pinch, it makes a good substitute. I like it because you get all the gentleness and mildness of olive oil BUT it lathers better and creates label appeal too!
Now that we have some helpful information about how best to use the Royalty Soaps Oil Blend, let’s dive into a few quick recipes that I use all the time!
Perfect for testing fragrance oils, making cold process cubes or shavings as embeds for a later soap, or your very first beginner batch.
This is the batch size that I make for every high-top YouTube video! Pair it with some soap frosting or leave it a low top. Either way, it yields 32-34 bars, depending on how you choose to cut it. At Royalty Soaps, we do 16 bars a loaf and get two samples off the end!
This is the largest batch size we make at Royalty Soaps in the custom slab molds that my brother, Kenny, made for us! The mold size is 14in x 14in x 3.5 in and makes approx. 52 bars with 8 sample slivers. This batch size also leaves a little empty room up top so you don’t have to worry about spilling and have plenty of space to swirl and glitter!
