Description 

The Bramble Berry Quick Mix Oils are an easy way for you to save time weighing and blending oils when making cold process or hot process soap. We do the work for you. And you have consistent and reliable results everytime.

The Lots of Lather Quick Mix is comprised of Coconut, Palm Oil, Canola Oil, Olive Oil and Castor Oil. It produces an extremely hard bar that has large bubbles with good stability. The resulting soap rinses away cleanly in the shower. Because of the lathering properties, this recipe does best at a 7% superfat or below. With the purchase of Lots of Lather Quick Mix you also receive a PDF that includes information on lye and water amounts.

NOTE: While it is possible to add extra butters or oils to our Quick Mixes, if you add extra butters or oil into this recipe, your soap will be softer, have smaller, more dense lather and will have a shorter shelf life. 

INCI: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis guineensis (Palm) Oil, Brassica Napus (Canola) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil

Took forever to trace
I have made soap many times before, but as an occasional hobby, keeping a variety of oils on hand is inconvenient, so thought I'd give this a try. I used one of the recipes provided by Brambleberry, but found this took FOREVER to trace (about 3 hours). I was afraid I was doing something wrong, as my previous recipes using coconut and olive oil traced in less than an hour. As I did not want to give up and waste the material, I kept at it and eventually achieved something close to trace after hours of stirring and poured into my molds. After several weeks of curing, I found that I did get usable soap, but the bars do not look nice and formed a thick crust of soda ash on top that had to be scraped off. I checked my scale to make sure it was accurate, and it was right on. I made two batches and both came out with the same disappointing results. Unfortunately, I still have about 1/2 a bag left, but don't want to chance it again, so it will be a waste. Back to my old recipe!

Hi Cyndi! I'm sorry to hear that you had a hard time with this Quick Mix. If you are not using a stick blender to combine your oils and lye water, it can take an extremely long time to reach trace no matter what oils you are using. Stick blending makes the process much easier, and saves your arms a lot of work :). To prevent soda ash in the future, I would recommend spraying the top of your soap with isopropyl alcohol.

Great Soap Mix
I tried this mix first, and liked it enough to re-order it again. My bars turned out nice and hard, and working quickly I was able to get in some simple swirls, and even a drop swirl. I do have a question about the lye amounts in this mix. I am a new soaper and using the lye calculator above, at 5% superfat, does that automatically add the superfat from the oil amount I have already put in? Or do I still need to add oil/butter after trace? I'm wondering because as much as I love the bars "as is" I can't help but feel like they could be more moisturizing. Or do you have another moisturizing suggestion?

Hi Alicia! When you select your superfat percentage, it will automatically calculate this from the oils used, so there is no need to add more oil :). We have found that superfatting soap at 5% leads to a bar that is both hard and moisturizing, but you can certainly increase this amount if you'd like!

Perfect for First Time CP Soaper!
I am so pleased with this product! I began with MP and have had tremendous success. I had been very hesitant to start CP due to the dangers associated with Lye. I decided to take that step though and purchased the quick mix. I am horrible at measuring! I have all the ingredients to mix my own oils but this mix just sounded so easy. Before purchasing I made sure to watch all the safety videos and completed quite a bit of research regarding terminology, curing, scents, and colors. I finally received my quick mix. I set up everything I needed and prepared my colors. I was very nervous! I separated my mixture and completed to colors/scents. I used Plumeria for my first mold and it accelerated trace. I knew this though so I was fully prepared! For my second half I used Sensuous Sandalwood. Today I removed my soaps from molds, cut, and set aside to cure. Both turned out perfectly! I purchased another quick mix along with the swirl mix. I am so excited to try new scents/colors!

Love it!
This makes soap making easy! These quick mixes are great for beginning cold process soapers who just want to focus on learning certain techniques. I've already ordered this twice, and my soap has turned out perfectly every time. Absolutely love it!

First time soap maker!
I used this soap mix for Christmas presents. I can't believe how great the soaps came out! Everyone in my family loved them. I would recommend working in smaller batches, as this did start to set up faster than I was moving, but for those of you looking to save a ton of time and still get an amazing product, this is it!
