The Bramble Berry Quick Mix Oils are an easy way for you to save time weighing and blending oils. We do all the work for you.
The Swirl Recipe Quick Mix is comprised of Coconut, Palm Oil, Canola, Pure Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil and Vitamin E. It produces a recipe that gives plenty of time to swirl or do intricate designs. The resulting soap has a conditioning feel with stable, creamy bubbles. Because of the lathering properties, this recipe does best at a 7% superfat or lower.
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.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi KC! I'm sorry you had trouble working with this mix. We love our Swirl Recipe Quick Mix which was specifically formulated to give you plenty of time to swirl or do intricate designs as demonstrated in the Soap Challenge: Elemental Swirl blog post. If the quick mix is not fully melted to a high enough temperature it can start to harden as you're blending it. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Arlene! So glad you like the quick mix! To resize your batch, you can use the calculator on this page. The 4" Silicone Loaf Mold holds 16 ounces of soap. To find out how many oils to use is a bit of guesswork. I started out with 12 ounces at a 5% superfat. That gave me 17.7 ounces, so I entered 11 ounces in the "Resize Batch" box. That gave me 16.1 ounces total - 1.5 ounces of lye, 3.6 ounces of liquid and 11 ounces of mix. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
