Infusing Oils with Herbs and Spices for Use in Cold Process Soap Making

Thank you so much for watching, commenting, and subscribing! :) This video shows how I personally make my herb and spice oil infusions. Be sure to research the herbs and spices for yourself and your particular recipe, making sure they are both safe to use in cold process soap and safe for the skin. In case you’re interested, I have an affiliate store where I’ve listed all of the soap making supplies and materials that I purchase on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/shop/kapiamerasoapcompany If you use those links to buy anything, it won’t cost you anything extra, but I will receive a very small percentage of the sale. Every little bit helps, though, so thank you very much if you do! :) Several links below provide information on many other herbs and spices, along with details on how to make infusions with them and what happens when you add them to cold process soap. In this video, I used olive oil, but I occasionally use sunflower and sweet almond oil for various infusions. Here are some details about each herb/spice I used in this video: Indigo Root Powder Infusion ratio: 2 teaspoons for every 4 oz olive oil (I purchase my indigo powder from both BrambleBerry and Soap Making Resource) Paprika Powder: 2 Tbsp for every 4 oz olive oil Nettle Leaf Powder: 2 Tbsp for every 4 oz olive oil Dried Calendula Petals: Fill the jar with the dried petals, cover completely with olive oil There are basically two methods for infusing oils: applying heat to quickly infuse the oils OR allowing the mixture to sit for about 6 to 8 weeks. I make my infusions using a double boiler, but I have also achieved great results using a crock pot. I’ve never tried allowing the mixture to sit for weeks. I’m really just too impatient for that. There are links below that discuss both methods. I’m sure I’ve left some great sites out of this list below, so if you know of one, please let us know in the comments.

Most come from the above stores. I also buy from Nature's Garden, Mad Oils, Wholesale Supplies, Camden Grey, Soapmakingcolorants.com, Majestic Mountain Sage, and probably some others that I can't quite recall at the moment.
