This kit is a little different than our other kits in that you can remove or get extra of each item in your shopping cart (and the price will adjust accordingly) before you check out. So you can just get what you need. Also please note that there are no printed instructions included with this kit, learn how to make this soap on the Soap Queen Blog here.
If you have never made soap from scratch before, please check out Anne-Marie’s four part series on cold process before trying this recipe. It is really important to understand how to work with sodium hydroxide (lye) so that you are soaping on the safe side.
This was a fun to make soap. It turned out great. During the curing process I could still smell the wonderful citrus orange scent until the last week or two. After it was done curing, I can barely smell it anymore. Any advice on how to maintain the scent? I would like to make this soap again, but I want it to retain the scent.
This soap turned out wonderful! Great color and the scent is just yummy. Super orange-y, but in a very good way. 4 weeks curing and it still has such a wonderful scent. Easy soap to make, this was my first attempt at cold process soap making and it turned out perfect.
Wow!! That would be amazing! I’d love to try it! I do have a running wishlist so this sounds like a good excuse to go ahead and place an order :)
This came out well, but very sad to say no fragrance at all.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Kimberley! I'm so glad your Sunshine Soap came out well. Though, I'm sorry it had no scent to it at all. For this recipe we found that 2 oz Yuzu Cybilla Fragrance Oil and 2 oz of 10X Orange Essential Oil made a heavenly scent in our soap as seen in our Making Sunshine Cold Process Soap tutorial. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

The soap smelled amazing when I made it. After four weeks the scent was a mild at best and nonexistent when I used the soap. The feel of the soap is great! The appearance of the soap is great as well, but the I probably wont make anymore I was hoping to be able to smell it on my hands after I used it.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Joshua! I'm glad you like the feel of the soap! In our tests, we found that the scent stayed well in the soap after four weeks. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
