Liquid Concentrate Base - Concentrated soap base that can be diluted with water! Although you can dilute it by as much as 5 parts water to 1 part soap we have found that 3 parts water to 1 part soap is the best ratio for most products. Create multiple products from this single base; bubble bath, shower gel, shampoo, hand soap, and more! Easily thicken your diluted base with salt water.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Erin! I'm so glad you like this base! To thicken this base with salt water, you can add .5 oz. of regular table salt (very important to use regular table salt) to 1.5 oz. of warm distilled water. Then, mix well and add that to your base after you've added fragrance. We found about 12 mL of the salt solution in 1 lb. of base created a nice thick soap. You can also thicken this soap by adding less water to dilute it. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this more!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Devin! I'm glad you like the base! To use it, all you need to do is add distilled water. If you're having trouble mixing the water in, you can heat the water and soap together in low in a pot on the stove top or a crock pot. We have found that 3:1 is the best ratio of water to soap, but you can add up to 5:1. You can also add color or fragrance if you like. Then, portion your mix into bottles. Sorry for any confusion! I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this.

Hi Sherry! The 3:1 ratio is 3 parts distilled water and 1 part liquid soap. Sorry for any confusion! To thicken the liquid soap, you can reduce that dilution to 2:1. You can also use a 20% salt water solution. To make that, add 20% table salt to warm distilled water. Then, slowly add the solution until you have your desired thickness. It’s important to use distilled water for dilution and the salt water solution. Tap water can have microbes or bits of metal in it – no fun! I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Several months ago, I received a lovely email from Patti Flynn. Patti participated in the “Crazy Sexy Vegan Cleanse,” that I coordinated in 2012, which involved no meat, sugar, dairy, gluten, alcohol or coffee. During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
