I tested 8 new fragrances today. In the past I would do a 1 lb batch for new fragrances. But I didn't want to make 8 pounds of soap. So I made a batch using 27 oz of oils and divided it up into 8 - 5 oz portions. Then I added scent to each of those (taking .7 ppo divided by my weight of oils and converted to ML so I could use pipettes - it should be a close approximation) and poured them into 'clamshells' making 8 individual bars of soap. I had everything laid out and ready to go including paper towels to wipe off my spoons & spatulas since I didn't have 8 of those and I just couldn't chance 'mixing' things up (just one of my 'things' LOL). It worked like a charm. I had to work fast 'cause I was afraid by the time I got to no. 8 I'd have soap in the bowl but I didn't. I don't think I'd try to do more than that at one time though - it was a little stressful! LOL

Whew! I'm impressed! I know I couldn't have pulled that off especially wiping spoons and spatulas inbetween! Congrats for making it to #8 still in liquid form!

Sounds exciting... and stressful. ;)

I take my 1 ounce samples and soap at a rate of .75 ppo. These test batches become my 'freebies' when a customer places an order. I usually pour the soap into fun Milky Way or silicone molds. I get a lot of positive feedback when I do this and not to mention new customers. :D
