Cinnamon & Ginger Soap Recipe

A week ago, a reader asked my Cinnamon & Ginger CP recipe.  Though occupied by my routine day jobs and taking care of my puppies, I had this in my mind for a while and want to share with all my friends.  It's nothing really new or different with other recipes you might find over the internet.  But the soap came out really aromatic, plus the scrubby touch of ginger powder.  I have friends who really enjoy this soap.  This soap does not produce bubbles but has subtle & creamy lather with a rather good moisturizing score.   I actually did three batches in the past few months:






Here is the recipe:

Olive Oil       30%
  Coconut Oil       28%
Palm Oil       16%
Safflower Oil     8%
Shea Butter     10%
Castor  Oil         8%

with  5% Lye Discount

Additives:                Ginger Root Powder added at trace
                                     Cocoa Powder added into half of the soap mixture
Essential Oil:                                                                   
  Ginger Root      24%
Cinnamon Leaf    24%
Cinnamon Bark    52%

Run thru any software (Bramble Berry or SoapCalc) to calculate the corresponding Lye & Water you will need.  Handle lye with proper care.  It should bring you a warm, aromatic & blissful bar.
Happy Soaping!

  1. There's a lovely calendula flower soap linked over to the right but you can only view it by invitation? Sad. I love your blog above, though, I've pinned it :)
