Description 

 

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. 

Ingredients:
Botanical Name:  Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis guineensis (Palm) Oil, Brassica Napus (Canola) OilOlea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Sweet almond oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis), Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Tocepherol (Vitamin E) 
Common Name:  Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Canola Oil, Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Vitamin E

Swirl Mix
I purchased the swirl mix and made it this weekend. It turned into a hard yellow block. I really love everything I have purchased and made but this makes me a bit angry. I followed the directions, blended it with a beautiful pink swirl and used the rest of my cranberry fig scent and now I have nothing. Its yellow, its all cracked and my husband was blown away. My cold process always look so good. Any ideas? I am more mad because I wasted my scent. By reading other posts, I guess I am the only failure at this but I think I will stick with measuring my own cold process.

 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!

Swirl Quick Mix Recipe for 4" silicone mold
Am very thrilled with the Swirl Quick Mix but looking to create some test batches in the 4" silicone mold (~ 1lb). I believe it should be correct to just divide the measurements listed for the 5lb wood but wanted to be sure. Thanks!!

Hi 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!

Love, Love, Love !
I made my first 5 lb. batch using the Quick Swirl yesterday. It was super easy to work with and my soap turned out gorgeous and smells wonderful. The key to making the batch successful every time is to soap at LOW temperature for both oils and lye water. I soaped around 100 degrees and had plenty of time to do my swirling. No more measuring out oils!!! If you haven't tried the Quick Swirl yet, I highly suggest trying it. Thanks so much Brambleberry for making soaping super easy!!

Love this product
I love the creative side of soapmaking. I don't love the messes! This product is the answer. I have used all the quick mixes and love them all, but this swirl quick mix is my favorite. It gives me time to work with my loaves. I especially like making hanger swirl soap and this mix gives me plenty of time! My bars come out hard and lather nicely! I do use sodium lactate in all my batches. I use the silicone molds and the sodium lactate helps it harden nicely and quicker than if I don't use it. I also love the quick mix calculator. It takes all the guess work out and giving you consistant batches EVERY time. Thanks for this fantastic product!

Love it!
I wanted to wait to rate this until I actually tried the soaps that I made using this quick mix. I found these oils very easy to work with. After melting the 35lb bucket by pitting it in a sink of very hot water to incorporate all of the oils, I transferred the oils into the bags that Bramble Berry sells. This might seem like a lot of work, but really, it isn't. It makes using the oils much easier in the future. Like I said, these oils were very easy to work with. I even did a swirl using a rose scent (soaping with room temperature oils & lye water probably helped too) The soaps I made with the swirl mix are great! Truly great. My skin feels soft and awesome. I did have one rose batch get very thick on me quickly, but I was soaping at higher temps, and even with that, was still able to do a pretty cool spoon swirl...so if you are looking to use scents that tend to seize you might consider soaping at a cooler temp. I will definitely be buying more of the quick mixes.
