This is what I used for my recipe:
olive oil, 38%
palm oil, 30%
coconut oil, 25%
sweet almond oil, 5%
castor oil, 2%
My fragrance is berries and grapes, sweet and fruity with a hint of mint. I added the fragrance right into my oils before adding the lye water.
My colors are combinations of pigments, oxides, ultramarines and micas.
I used almost full water and a 4% superfat. I soaped at about 92 degrees.

It looked like green apple, chocolate and berries! I think the next time I make this I will use those fragrance oils to match the colors!
When I unmolded the next day, it looked good except it seemed that parts of the soap did not completely gel which left an odd uneven coloring in the soap. I was disappointed with that but over all liked my mantra swirl soap.
I really love these colors! I will definitely be doing the mantra swirl again!
A big thank you to Amy from Great Cakes Soapworks for this mantra swirl challenge! I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next one!
