New Recipe – Brazilian Amazon CP Soap Recipe
We created this soap using exotic oils sustainably harvested from the Amazon rainforest. Some of the oils have a natural color to them, so we made the soap without colorants to create a rich, golden color. Additionally, the speckles are created using vanilla bean flecks. Since the oils also had a distinct scent, we combined them with complimentary fragrances, which created a lovely final aroma.
You can purchase all of the oils and fragrances used in this recipe from Paris Fragrances USA. The owners are sweet and helpful. Furthermore, they are from Brazil and bring with them the knowledge of the oils and of designer fragrances that are extremely popular in South America.
We offer a copy of this recipe in both US Customary (in ounces) and Metric System (in grams) versions in PDF format for easy downloading, saving and/or printing.
