I’m calling this Swamp Scotch: super mossy/vegetal from the spirulina, and cologne-y from the FO.

This is a new recipe for me (a tweak of the classic trinity of oils recipe from this forum), so time will tell on how the lather is. As expected with spirulina, it will eventually fade to the pale olive in the swirl bar I included in the third pic.

Olive 30%
Coconut 25%
Palm 40%
Castor 5%
Sodium lactate 2%
Sodium citrate 2%
Sorbitol 2%
Kaolin 1T
Pumice 1T
Spirulina 2T
Brambleberry Birchwood Oud FO 6%

WOWSER! Looking good! :thumbs::thumbs: I'll bet they will lather like a mad dog!!!
Thanks! It's only been a week, but I tried it out and it's like shaving soap. I'm really happy with the suds!

However... I may have gone overboard with the spirulina. I usually like the swampy smell (reminds me of peaty scotch) but oof. Pretty stank. I'm sure it'll mellow out like my swirl soap did.
