Storing Handmade Soap
I was wondering what's the best way to store and preserve the scents in cold process soap until it's time to be sold?
The best way to store your handmade soaps is to keep them in a cool and dry location out of direct sunlight.
Other precautions can be taken to help prolong the scents in a soap.
(scroll down to the bottom of the page) to help the scent to 'stick'.
You can also wait to cut up the soap log until closer to the time you want to sell. A larger block seems to hold it's scent longer than smaller pieces.
Make sure to use an adequate amount of scent in your soaps. The scent should be a bit strong right out of the soap mold. It will mellow over the next 4 weeks.
I find soaps seem to maintain their scent quite well for up to a year if stored properly.
