    Today I was pretty ambitious.
    After getting a few simple recipes under my belt, I was determined to try a swirl for the first time! I used three different colors and the Lily Lemon Drop fragrance oil from Brambleberry. My inspiration: pink lemonade!

    Overall, I’m super happy with the result!! I blended right until thin trace, and I was able to confidently tell when I had reached emulsion. (First time!! I usually made recipes that were medium/thick trace.)

    Here is how it turned out:

    I will post an update photo after they gel and I unmold them. :)
    I used:
    32% Olive, Palm, and Coconut Oil
    4% Castor oil
