Good to know! Thanks for the feedback!
The slurry of castor oil & clays, as well as marinating my mixed dry botanicals in the base of castor / clay / essential oils as long as possible, is an absolutely stellar way to fix the scent, extend its longevity, and seems to be working so that all 3 slowly & gradually release the essential oil components into the environment the soap is in. This alone has already motivated many people to ask if they can place private orders. I give them a tester bar & they call asking to buy, every single time. Their first comment is THE SCENT! and next HOW BEAUTIFUL! using natural colorants exclusively.
Not only that, I am not experiencing drag marks or other types of marring from my botanicals when I cut when I give the castor / essential oil blend time to soften them up, and experience no brown bloom around botanical particles. Brown bloom tends to be ubiquitous, not to mention accepted, in other botanical-type soaps which I see when doing local market research. So the benefit of doing the above is far-reaching. Yeah, it's only soap, but it's PROFESSIONAL looking & smelling soap, which is huge. Pair that with the packaging & marketing & this stuff is amazing, if I do say so myself Every piece of the puzzle gradually comes together
So yes, I've said it before & will keep saying it THANK YOU for sharing your experience with this. I sincerely hope more people try this, because it DOES work!
