Haul: Brambleberry December 2015
After several batches where stick blending in a pigment was not an option - I wanted to keep the batter from thickening up and stick blending is no bueno for that - I thought, hmm, maybe Anne-Marie has a point. So I picked this up. This has come in very handy with dispersing my pigments into a lightweight oil as well as mixing kaolin clay into my fragrance oil.
Sesame Oil: Repurchase. I like this as a superfatting oil and have taken to using it to disperse my colorants. Nothing particularly special about it besides it's moisturizing and cheap.
Castor Oil: Repurchase. I bought two of these as well. Castor oil is good for bubbles. It has other properties but I care most about the bubbles. I'm a bubble whore.
This concludes my most recent and probably last haul from Brambleberry for several years. I like their pricing and speedy shipping. They have lots of resources to help new soapers, as well as good recipes that they have tested. I get a sense of pride and love in what they do from the company, and that's a good feeling to have when buying something. Whenever I next am able to buy soapy supplies it will most likely be from here.
