My first attempt at a salt bar! I think they turned out really nicely and the smell is heavenly.

80% CO
20% OO

20% SF
50% fine sea salt
29% lye concentration

Coloured with TD and BB micas. Scented with a mixture of BB Kumquat and Yuzu.

Looks great. Congratulations!

Did the FO stick? How much did you use ppo?
I find Yuzu needs to be used with a heavy hand in CP soap but it could be my supplier..

I used my cavity molds, yes! Unmolding was a breeze.

I'll report back on how the scent holds, I just unmolded today.

I used 3oz (1.5 of each) in 2 lbs of oils.

Thanks everyone! I keep grabbing a bar to sniff as I walk by them, can't wait to give them a try in a few weeks.

Very nice! I also use cavity molds for salt bars, and unmolding is fabulous, isn't it?

You've inspired me to make some salt bars. I've only made them once in my soaping life but loved them. Yours are lovely

Glad to hear!! They were actually surprisingly easy, I'll definitely be making more.

Love love love this serenity color. Just like I'm under the water, hearing muffled sound, and all is quiet and peaceful. And of course I'm wearing a life jacket or in a swim ring, or hold on a life buoy.
