You can use store bought aloe vera juice or make your own by pouring 1 cup of very hot water over 2 teaspoons of aloe vera leaf powder and mix well. Then, weigh out 98 grams of this solution for the recipe. 


1/3 of my lye liquid amount is aloe juice with a 33% lye solution strength SF is 6.35% on soapmaker - I superfat a little higher than normal to cover the CO amount.

Other additives: 3T dried calendula petals - 2T blended into the soap batter at trace and 1T sprinkled on top. 1 tsp yellow clay - either added to the whole batch or pour off 1/3 batter and color the rest. Pour the colored layer then pour the uncolored batter on top before sprinkling with petals.
