This blend is new and uses less coconut and more palm than our previously offered blend. Coconut oil can be a bit drying in soap. We reduced the coconut so this blend is ideal for those with dry or sensitive skin.
This blend contains the following FOOD GRADE pre-mixed oils:
The oils used to make this blend are the highest-quality oils we can find and are the best of the best! We recommend using this blend within one year of purchase.
If you are frustrated with too fast of trace, oils behaving badly, or the time-consuming task of having to weigh and measure every oil that goes into a soap recipe, this blend is perfect for you!
This oil blend comes in a plastic F-Style jug. This blend stays quite fluid at room temperature, so if you are storing your oils at room temp you can shake the jug to sufficiently mix the oils. To warm cold oils, place the jug in a warm water bath. I have found that filling the sink with warm water and placing the jug in the sink is sufficient to warm colder oils.
This soap feels great in the shower. It is lower cleansing, high conditioning, with a thick creamy lather and lots of big bubbles!
These recipes were created in Soapcalc using full water. Soaping with full water is ideal for beginners. It will make your soap fluid longer and give plenty of time for the delicate swirls we all love!

Follow this link to see a recipe that has been made with the Soapee soap calculator. This recipe has a 33% water discount. This will make it easier to unmold your soap more quickly, but will also speed up trace of the soap. You can change the amount of oils, water discount, and many other factors in the soap calculator.

New to soap making and I wanted to try my hand at it before I bought all the oils and ingredients separately. This mix is perfect for starting out to see if this is something you are going to love (I do!).
I loved being able to buy their oil blend! It really made making my first batch of cold process soap so easy!
Very nice and easy to use but I wish they made bigger sizes.
Pretty handy premix
I am new to CP soap making and so a pre-mixed oil blend is exactly what I’m looking for as a beginner. I originally ordered Katie’s Blend but went to this after that was discontinued. Overall, I don’t think there’s anything WRONG with the blend... however whatever the difference was between those two blends is very noticeable from the start (for me anyway) Katie’s blend easily melted down under hot water and was clear... indicating that all the oils were evenly distributed. With this blend (nurture soap) there was A LOT of hard solids on the bottom which had to be mixed in, and remained solid way up past 130 degrees.... which makes it very hard to do under hot tap water. You would have to get the entire bottle very hot for the hard oils to melt and evenly distribute through the mixture. I had to shake the bottle a bunch, and then pour it into another container in order to heat it up.... which means I’m really not sure on the ACTUAL percentages of oils per batch. Not that big of a deal.... I’m sure it’s not that much different.... but it’s something I wished I knew beforehand so I wouldn’t have been confused. Other than that, I love the blend, it’s made some really nice soaps so far and is really convenient! To be honest, I think offering a nice affordable blend like this is such a good idea and will likely be ordering more! I’ve uploaded a picture of the oils that have settled. This is after I mixed it all up and poured some off. When it first came, the hard oils took up about a half inch on the bottom. Hope this helps!
Hi Alexandria! The percentage of hard oils in this blend did not change from the old one. We will make sure the blends are very well mixed before refilling. :)
Nurture soap oil
I’m new at CP but this premixed oils make the things so much easier.
I’m very happy with it.
