Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Next, mix the ingredients together.  I find it easiest to use your hands to mix them together.  You need to mix the ingredients together until you have a crumbly dough consistency.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Mix Your Colorant

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Mix Your ColorantWe will be mixing three colors together to achieve a mango sorbet color.  First, add 6 grams of Nature’s Garden’s yelp yellow FUN Soap Colorant.  Then, add in 1 gram of jailhouse red FUN Soap Colorant.  Lastly, add 3 drops of the yellow oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix them together to create an even color.  Finally, add the colorant to your bubble bar dough.  Again, I find it easiest to also mix the colorant into the dough with your hands.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Scooping the Dough

Once you have all the ingredients mixed, you will leave it in the bowl and scoop right out of the bowl.  You want to push down and pack the dough into the bowl.  This will make it easier to scoop the dough.  As you can see it looks kind of like ice cream.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Scooping the Dough

 

 

 

Now, once you have packed your dough down into your bowl, use your stainless steel ice cream scoop to begin scooping your ice cream bubble bars.  Scoop a bit of the dough into the mini ice cream scoop.  Then, use your hand to once again pack it in tightly.  This will ensure that the bubble bars hold their form when removing them from the scoop.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Scooping the Dough

 

 

Finally, make sure your silicone mat or parchment paper is in an area where it will not be disturbed.  Then, press the button to release the scoop over a piece your silicone mat.  Repeat this process until you have used up all of your dough.  This recipe will create about 15 mini ice cream scoop bubble bars.  These ice cream bubble bars will need to setup before you can move them.  Leave them undisturbed for about three days before using them or packaging them.  The drying time can vary.  However, after a couple days you can check them to see if they have setup.

When creating homemade candles with Natures Garden’s Coco Mango aroma, we suggest a yellow orange color.  You can achieve this color by using 2 drops of orange along with 2 drops yellow liquid candle dye. However, we should add, this suggestion is based on a 4 pound batch of wax.

Next, this fragrance oil is extremely strong in handmade soaps.  We found no separation and no ricing.  However, we did show slight acceleration to the batter.  Although, it had no discoloration and an awesome scent retention.

 

Papaya Guava Mango Fragrance OilPapaya Guava Mango Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a POWER SCENT; very complex and strong!  This fragrance was tested by customers in our VIP testing program and received incredible praise!  Relax, refresh and recharge with the serene yet uplifting scent of luscious tropical mango, juicy papaya and creamy island florals.  One of our favorite mango fragrance oils.

Top Notes: Cherry, Mango, Papaya, Guava, Lime
Middle Notes: Lily of the Valley
Base Notes: Vanilla

 

This is a fabulous tropical scent in soap.  While initially we thought it might not be great in soap, the finished soap looked great and had a strong scent retention.  Our testing showed that it riced but stick blended out, separated but reabsorbed.  We found now acceleration.  The cured soap discolors to a light brown sugar color.

 


When creating homemade candles, we suggest 3 drops orange and 1 drop yellow liquid candle dye.  This is again, based on a four pound batch.  You could shred a small amount of a yellow and orange color block into your melted wax instead.

 

 

Star Fruit and Mango Fragrance Oil

This refreshing Star Fruit Mango fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a blend of fresh star fruit and mangos, rounded out with notes of strawberry and peach. A Best Seller!

 

 

 

The last of our mango fragrance oils is Star Fruit Mango Fragrance Oil.  When used in soap Natures Garden found no ricing, no acceleration, no separation, and finally no discoloration.  Also, the cured soap also had a good scent retention.

 

 

Finally, candle makers, this fragrance is perfect in candles.  You can color your wax with 2 drops yellow plus a tiny bit of orange liquid candle colorant.  Another option is to use color blocks.  You could shred some yellow color block along with a bit of an orange color block.

 

We hope that you love these mango fragrance oils as much as we do.  Which of these mango fragrance oils is your favorite?  Be sure to show us what your have made with these fragrance oils.  Post your pictures on or Facebook page.  You could also tag us on Instagram @ngscents.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit

Melt and Pour Soap KitThe Melt and Pour Soap Kit provides you with everything that you need to create two pounds worth of melt and pour soaps. Not only will you be able to create about sixteen individual bars of melt and pour soap, but this kit provides you with everything from the ingredients to the soap molds. So, making these soaps could not get any easier! Simply melt the soap base, add a few ingredients, and pour the soap into the molds. Plus, this Natures Garden kit comes with your choice of one of two soap bases. You also receive four different scents and two different soap dyes to use. So, you can make a couple of batches of soap that are the color and scent you’d prefer. Overall, this kit is a great choice for a beginner soap maker or someone looking for a simple and fun craft to make.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Other Ingredients and Equipment Needed

Pyrex Glass Measuring Cup
Microwave
Refrigerator (optional)
Pam Cooking Spray (optional)
Tablespoon
Stainless Steel Mixing Spoon
Rubbing Alcohol

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Clean and Sanitize

Before you start your project make sure that you are truly prepared. First fill a bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a fine mist sprayer on top. Then, not only should you sanitize your work space, but you should retrieve and clean your equipment. The creation of this kit will require a clean counter space and an available microwave. Also, collecting the equipment needed to complete the project will help the process go smoother. Since everything will be within an arm’s reach, you won’t need to spend time and energy to locate certain tools to finish. Plus, pausing part way through may cause your soap to cool before it is time to pour into the molds. So, preparing ahead of time can save you time and prevent you from messing up your creation.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Preparing and Melting Your Soap Base

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Preparing and Melting Your Soap BaseFirst, you are going to want to prepare your provided soap base. Since melt and pour soap has already undergone the saponification process, all you’re are going to need to do is melt the soap. Also, our kit contains the Goats Milk Soap Base. However, you can choose the clear soap base if you’d like, the process is going to be the same either way. So, cut your slab of soap in half, which will be about a single pound of soap. Then, cut your soap into smaller chunks to fit the soap into your glass measuring cup. After, you will place your filled measuring cup in the microwave for a minute. If the soap is not entirely melted after a minute, then heat the soap again in 30 second intervals until the soap base is entirely melted. You need to melt in intervals to avoid overheating the soap, as it could potentially boil.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Scenting Your Melted Soap

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Scenting Your Melted SoapNext, remove your soap from the microwave. Then, you will want to choose one of your four fragrance oils to add to your melted soap. While we chose to use the Lavender Fragrance Oil, any of the scents will work perfectly. Now, measure out a single tablespoon of your preferred fragrance and mix it into the melted soap.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Coloring Your Melted Soap

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Coloring Your Melted SoapAfter you add the fragrance oil, it’s time for color.  You will need your Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  Then, you will want to add some of the liquid soap dye to the scented soap. While you can add either color you’d like, we chose to use two red and two blue to create a light pastel purple shade for our soap.  Add your soap colorant and mix.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Pouring Your Melted Soap

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Pouring Your Melted SoapNow, you are going to pour your soap into the provided molds. While your melted soap is still hot, pour the soap into the molds. You should have enough melted to fill all the cavities in both molds. After your soaps set up you can create a second batch of soaps with the other half of your melt and pour soap slab. Additionally, you can spray a paper towel with Pam Cooking Spray then wipe inside each cavity of your mold before pouring your melted soap. This will make removing the hardened soap from the molds easier, but will not harm the soaps. Once you pour the melted soap into the molds spray any air bubbles you see with rubbing alcohol to release them.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Finishing Your Soaps

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Finishing Your SoapsFinally, you are going to finish your melt and pour soaps. First, you will need to wait a half hour before moving your soap molds. Since the soap will be in a cooling process, moving the soaps could cause them to wrinkle or spill before they set up entirely. After this time passes, you can move the soap molds into the refrigerator for about an hour, or you can wait for them to setup naturally. Either way, allow the mp soap to finish the cooling process before removing your soap from the molds. Next, once the soap is setup, turn your mold upside down on a counter and press on the back of the soap cavity until your soap is released. Repeat the steps above with the remaining soap base. After, your soaps are complete and removed from the molds they are ready for immediate use!

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Other Ideas

If you are looking to kick your handmade soap up a notch, you can always use additives. You have many options when it comes to additives. My favorite is mica which can be dusted on your soap once they setup. This will give the soap a shimmering bling. Also, dried flowers like lavender or calendula can be added to the melted soap. Perhaps you want to add coffee grounds for exfoliation. These are just a few ways to make your soap stand out but the options really are endless. We hope that you enjoy the melt and pour soap kit.

First, make sure that you have a well ventilated area available to create your cp soap that is far away from children and pets. Also, have the appropriate safety attire ready for your own use. Next, clean up the areas that you intend to use for creating this soap. Finally, sanitize the equipment that you will be working with for this recipe. These steps will make this process easier for you and safer for everyone.

Peeps Cold Process Soap Recipe Creating the PeepsPeeps Cold Process Soap Recipe Creating the Peeps

First, you are going to create the melt and pout peep bunny soaps. These will be used to top the cold process soap that you will be making some later steps. So, before you begin the portion of the recipe that deals with the cold process soap you will be creating eight bunny peeps with melt and pour soap. When the time comes, you can choose to have two of each color or have a different color combination off peep bunny soaps. But, we will provide the amounts needed to achieve the correct colors. So, lets start with the melt and pour.

Peeps Cold Process Soap Recipe Melting the Soap

Now, you are going to melt the soap needed to create the bunny peep soaps. Since each peep will require 40 grams of melt and pour soap and we are creating two at a time, we will begin by melting 80 grams of the Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap. Melt this in 30 second increments. After you color this portion of your soap, you will melt three additional portions in their own bowls to be colored.

Next, you can add the color and scent to your melted soap. Take the melted 80 grams of Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap from the previous step. Add 4 grams of the Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil and the colorant of your choice. Depending on you decision, you will use 2 grams of Neon Pink, 2 grams of Deep Purple, 2 grams of Neon Blue, or 1 gram of Neon Yellow. You can either do a set of each color, or pick your favorites.

Then, you can fill the bunny peeps silicone soap mold. After you color your melt and pour soap, you can pour it into the molds. This should fill two bunny molds. Also, make sure you spray the top of the soap before you move on to you next batch of melt and pour. Once you have repeated these steps to get eight filled bunnies, then its time to move on to the next step.

Finally, the last step of the melt and pour process is to cover the bunny peeps in sugar. Once the soap is set up, remove them from the mold. Next, spray the peep bunny soaps with rubbing alcohol to get the sugar to adhere. After, cover the peeps in sugar and be sure to remember the sides as well. Next, let them dry before spraying and coating the backs of your bunny soaps.

Second, we are going to create the cold process soap portion of this recipe. Set your sugar coated peep bunny soaps aside. After the cp soap is set up in the mold, these will be used in decorate the top of the loaf. Until then, we will use the same four different colors along with white to create a swirled cp soap. Thus, we will be using an in the pot swirl technique.  So, lets get the cold process soap started.

Now, you are going to prepare you lye solution. Be sure that you are now working in a ventilated and safe area. First, you will weight out 517 grams of distilled water. Next, slowly mix 188 grams of lye into the previously weighed water. Make sure you add the lye to the water. Move on to the next step, but be sure to stir in 43 grams of sodium lactate after this solution has cooled to room temperature.

Peeps Cold Process Soap Recipe Preparing the Butters and Oils

Then, we can get the butters and oils ready for later. Take a scale and tare out a new bowl. Weigh 136 grams of Sweet Almond Oil, 340 grams Coconut Oil 76, 163 grams Grapeseed Oil, 340 grams Shea Butter, 372 grams Palm Oil, and 109 grams Castor Oil into the bowl. Once melted let them cool to room temperature

Next, we are going to get some medium mixing bowls ready with colorants. While we will only have four colors, you will need to have five bowls. Also, we will be adding 225 grams of soap to each so make sure the bowls are big enough.

So, in each of the bowls we will add one color or titanium dioxide. You will put 5 grams of Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant in the first bowl and in the second you will put 5 grams of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. The third will have you put in 4 grams of Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant and the fourth will have 4 grams of Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant.

After, we are going to separate the soap into the different bowls with colors. The four bowls that contain FUN Soap Colorant will each get 225 grams of your soap batter added to them.

Also, mix your colors starting with the lightest color and try to quickly wipe your blender between.

Next, we are going to set some of our white soap aside for later use. Take the bowl containing the Titanium dioxide with soap and separate 225 grams of the batter. Your smaller portion will be used with the colors to swirl the soap. The larger portion will be used in a later step to top the loaf.

Now, we are going to swirl the soap colors to get ready for pouring. Find a large bowl that will be able to hold all this soap. Add the white soap the the large bowl first. Then, pour each of the colors into the bowl, right on top of each other. After, use a spatula to swirl, which can be done by placing your spatula in the center of the bowl and moving in a clockwise manner. Next, pour your batter in the soap mold.

Do your best to make this resemble marshmallow fluff. Then, place the peeps bunny soap that were made previously on top of the white soap. After 24 hours you can remove the cold process soap from the loaf mold and when its hard you can cut the soap. Then, once it has fully cured your soap will be ready to use!

Valentines Day Kisses Melt And Pour Recipe Creating Mica Pigments 

Initially, we are going to prepare the soap pigments that we will need later on. Rather than using any of our soap dyes, we are going to use mica to color our melt and pour soap.

So, weigh out approximately 4 grams of vegetable glycerin and 2 grams of 24K gold mica into one of the smaller bowls. Now, mix these ingredients thoroughly to integrate all of the mica powder and spread out any clumped mica. Once you have a nice liquid gold paste prepared, set the bowl aside.

Now, we are going to use the diamond dust mica to create a different pigment for our melt and pour soap. First, weigh 5 grams of vegetable glycerin into another small bowl.

Soap Without PalmSoap Without Palm

Today’s recipe, Soap Without Palm, is a cold process soap recipe using Natures Garden’s Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Often soapers will avoid certain fragrances due to the discoloration it cause to the soap.  We thought we would show you a way to use this discoloration to your advantage.  Our Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil has a vanillin content of 4%, causing the soap to discolor to a caramel.  We thought this was the absolute perfect color for out soap.  This fragrance also has an amazing scent retention.  So, we used all of these qualities to our advantage by scenting only the portion we wanted to discolor.  We left part of our batch unscented.  I know you are probably think the soap couldn’t possibly smell as strong.  Well let me tell you, IT SMELLS FABULOUS!

68 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
55 grams of Sodium Lactate

15 grams Titanium Dioxide

Soap Without Palm Total Weights for Melt and Pour Embeds

115 grams SLS Free Clear Melt and Pour Soap
5 grams Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil
3 grams 24K Gold Mica Pigment
6 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Champagne Bottle Embeds

Soap Without Palm Preparing the EmbedsFirst, prepare your colorant.  Weigh out 3 grams of gold mica.  Then, add 6 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix well.  You will use this colorant for both the melt and pour soap and a small amount of the cold process soap portion. We will need the colorant once the mp soap is melted.  Use your scale to weigh out 115 grams of Natures Garden’s SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Next, melt the base.  Once it’s melted, add 5 grams of Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Now, add 1 gram of the gold colorant you just prepared.  Mix well to incorporate the ingredients.

Soap Without Palm Preparing the Embeds
Next, pour the melt and pour soap into the champagne bottle mold.  Then, spray any air bubbles you notice with rubbing alcohol.  The rubbing alcohol will help release any air bubble.  Allow the melt and pour soap to set up.  Once they have set up you can remove them from the mold and set them aside for now.  These will be placed on the top of the cold process soap when we finish.

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Lye Solution

Soap Without Palm Preparing the Lye Water
First, you will want to wear gloves, a mask, and goggles while preparing this recipe.  Begin by weighing out 517 grams of distilled water.  Slowly add 189 grams of lye to your distilled water.  Make you stir to dissolve all of the lye.  Set your lye water where it will not be disturbed.  Allow the temperature to drop to room temperature.

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Soaping Oils

Soap Without Palm Preparing the Oils
Weigh out 408 grams of coconut oil 76, 272 grams of shea butter, 272 grams of mango butter, 136 grams of sunflower oil, 136 grams of meadowfoam seed oil, 68 grams of castor oil, and 68 grams of apricot kernel oil.  Melt the oils using a double boiler.  Once melted allow the temperature to drop to room temperature.  While you are waiting, move to the next step.

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Other Ingredients

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Other IngredientsWhile we are waiting for our temperatures to drop, let’s go ahead and prepare our other ingredients.  First, we will weigh out our sodium lactate.  In a small bowl weigh out 55 grams of sodium lactate.  This will later be added to our cooled lye solution, set it aside for now.  Next, we will weigh out our Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  We will be adding the fragrance oil to only a portion of the cp soap batter.  Use a scale to weigh out 54 grams of Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Finally, we will mix the titanium dioxide into some oil.  This will be used to color our white portion of the soap.  In a small bowl, weigh out 15 grams of titanium dioxide.  Add 25 grams of your oils to this bowl.  Mix well until the colorant is nice and smooth.

Soap Without Palm Oil Preparing Your Soap Batter

IMAG2524_1
First, you will need to combine your soaping oils and lye solution.  Use a stick blender to emulsify.  Next, separate the batter.  In a small bowl weigh out 43 grams of the soap batter.  This portion will be unscented and colored gold.  Add the remaining gold colorant you prepared earlier.  Mix well to incorporate the color.  Then, add this soap batter to your decorating bottle.  Set this aside, for now.  We will use this later to place dots, resembling bubbles, on the top of the soap loaf.

IMAG2521_1
The remaining batter will be separated into two bowls.  The first bowl will be colored white and left unscented.  So, add 800 grams of soap batter to the bowl.  Now, add the titanium mixture you prepared earlier.  Then, stick blend to incorporate the color.  We will use 515 grams of this batter to swirl in the loaf, and 285 grams to top the loaf.

 

IMAG2526_1
Finally, the rest of the cp soap batter will be scented.  You will need to add the 54 grams of Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Stick blend to incorporate the fragrance oil.  This portion of your soap batter will be left uncolored.  We will be keeping the batter its natural color, using the discoloration to our advantage.  We feel that the natural discoloration of this fragrance in soap beautifully represents the fragrance oil.

Soap Without Palm Swirling the CP Soap Batter

IMAG2531_1
Now, the fun part.  Let’s swirl our batter.  To the bowl containing the scented soap, add plops of the white batter.  Keep in mind you will need to save about 285 grams of the white for the top of the loaf.  Once you have added the white, use a spatula to swirl the soap.  Place the spatula in the bowl and move it in a circular motion throughout the bowl.

Soap Without Palm Pouring the Soap Batter

IMAG2532_1

 

When you are satisfied with your swirls, we will pour the soap batter into the mold.  Get your square loaf mold out.  Pour the swirled cp soap batter into the mold.

 

IMAG2537_1

 

Now, we will use the remaining white soap batter to top the loaf.  Once your batter is a thick frosting like consistency, use a spatula to place it on top of the loaf.  Use the spatula to create peaks in the batter.

 

Soap Without Palm Adding the Finishing Touches

IMAG2538_1
Finally, we will be decorating the top of the soap.  Using the soap batter you placed in the decorating bottle, place dots on top of the white soap.  These are meant to represent bubbles.  Once you have finished, place the champagne bottle embeds across the loaf.  You want to keep in mind that you will be cutting the loaf, so place them strategically.  Make sure you push them in slightly at the bottom of the bottle so it looks like the champagne bottle is tilted.

After about 24 hours remove the soap from the mold.  Then, slice the soap using the mitre box and soap cutter.  Your soap will be ready to use once it cures.  We hope that you enjoy making this soap recipe as much as we have.  We found this particular recipe gave us plenty of time to work.  It was so easy to work with.  Post a picture of your cold process soap on our Facebook page, or tag us on Instagram @ngscents.

4 smaller sized bowls

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Melting Your Melt and Pour Soap

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Melting Your Melt and Pour SoapFor the first step you will want to use a medium, microwave safe bowl. Use a scale to weigh out and cut up 413 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. This can be melted in a microwave for a minute or so. Make sure you don’t put in for too long because you don’t want your soap to get too hot. Getting your soap too hot could happen very easily if you leave the soap unattended so be sure to watch as you microwave. We suggest that you take the soap out periodically and mix it to prevent this. While there may be some soap chunks remaining in the bowl, the soap may be hot enough to melt the soap chunks as you mix. If it isn’t hot enough, then stick it back in the microwave for a few more seconds and try again. Note that for the next few steps you will want to move a bit faster because the soap will begin to set up as it cools.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Scenting Your Melt and Pour Soap

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Scenting Your Melt and Pour SoapFor your second step you will be adding Natures Garden’s Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Fragrance Oil to your already melted soap. Using your gram scale, add 4 grams of the Goodie Goodie Gum Drops Fragrance Oil to your medium sized bowl of melted diamond clear melt and pour soap. Be sure that you do not add more than 4 grams of this fragrance because it has a body safe limit of 1% of the weight for the total recipe. Mix the fragrance oil in quickly and get ready to separate the soap into the small four bowls. If your melt and pour soap begins to set up, you can add it to the microwave for a few seconds. However, it cannot become too hot or the fragrance oil will burn off! So, you will need to be quick and ready to go.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Separate Your Melt and Pour Soap

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Separate Your Melt and Pour SoapFor the next step you will be taking your medium sized bowl to equally divide the melted soap into four small bowls. Each of your bowls will be used to create one of four different colors from the scrumptious gumdrop soaps. Now, using your scale, weigh out approximately 103 grams of the scented melt and pour soap in each bowl.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Melt and Pour Soap

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Green Soap

Next, we will be adding various Fun Soap Colorants to the bowls. This will create a variety of colored gumdrops! First, you will be creating some great green goodie gumdrop soaps! Take one of your previously weighed small bowls of melt and pour soap. Next, add 4 drops of our neon green fun soap colorant. This will give your soap a bright green candy color. Now, stir until the fun soap colorant has been evenly distributed throughout the melted soap. Pour the green soap into the first row of the gumdrop mold and spray with alcohol. Make sure that any soap that is remaining on top of the mold is wiped away to prevent the other gumdrops from color transfer.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Pink Soap

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Melt and Pour SoapNext, you are going to create your pretty pink gumdrop soaps! Take your next small bowl that has 103 grams of melt and pour soap. Stir in 2 drops of our neon pink fun soap colorant. Also, add 2 drops of our ultramarine violet fun soap colorant. After the dye has been mixed in evenly to create a vibrant pink hue, pour the soap into the second row of the gumdrop mold. Spray your pink soap with alcohol and wipe the excess soap from the top of the mold.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Blue Soap

Now, it’s is time for you to create your scrumptious blue gumdrop candy melt and pour soap! Take another small bowl of melted soap. Now, stir in 5 drops of the neon blue fun soap colorant. Also, add 1 drop of the ultramarine violet fun soap colorant. Once the dye has been mixed in well, pour the soap into the third row of the mold and spray this row with alcohol.  Also, wipe any soap poured above the indent.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Orange Soap

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Color Your Melt and Pour SoapFinally, you will be making the fantastic orange gumdrop soap! Grab one of the small bowls of melted soap. Stir in 8 drops of neon orange fun soap colorant. Once all of the melt and pour soap is evenly orange, pour the soap into the last row of the gumdrop mold. Spray the final row with alcohol and be sure that the orange melt and pour soap can’t get into another row.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Unmolding Your Melt and Pour Soaps

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Unmolding Your Melt and Pour SoapsNow it’s time to play the waiting game for a few minutes. Although it doesn’t take too long to set up, you must make sure that the melt and pour soap has completely set up. If you wish to speed up the soap’s cooling process, you have the option to move your filled soap mold to your refrigerator. Just make sure that your soaps are set up just enough on the top to be able to move the mold without creating ripples on the top of your soaps. You can tell whether they’re ready by watching the tops and slowly moving. If it looks too liquid, wait longer. Eventually, the soap will be entirely set up, either on its own or with some help from the fridge, and you will be able to pop the cute little melt and pour candy soaps out of the gumdrop mold.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Sweetening Your Melt and Pour Soaps

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Sweetening Your Melt and Pour SoapsAs a final step you can use some white, granulated sugar to make your melt and pour soaps look more realistic. This is the step that really makes these little candy soaps look realistic! Adding sugar doesn’t reduce the quality of the soap, as the sugar can wash right off before use. Now, spread a nice layer of your white cane sugar on a plate. Then, spray one of your gumdrops with some rubbing alcohol to get the sugar to stick to the soap better. Now you can lightly roll the sprayed gumdrop soap in the white sugar to get an even coat on the little soap. You can repeat the spraying and rolling steps with the other melt and pour gumdrop soaps.

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Soap Recipe Sweetening Your Melt and Pour SoapsFinally, this should leave you with the finished product of sixteen irresistibly cute gumdrop melt and pour soaps! These sweet little soaps are ready to use but, so cute that you may not want to wash them away. Instead, you may decide to use these sweet candy soaps to decorate your home. These little melt and pour goodies would be perfect with the round silicone cupcake molds as your soap dish! On the other hand, you could attempt to trick a friend into trying the candy scented soap, since these soaps are just realistic enough to work. Just don’t let them actually eat them! Regardless of how you intend to use these festive holiday melt and pour soaps, they are guaranteed to add a bit of holiday cheer to your home.

The uncolored portion of the soap batter can be poured into your mold at a light trace.  Now, begin with the darker green soap batter.  Pour a line of dark down the center of your mold. You want to pour it down the longer length of the mold.  Then, pour the lighter green right on top of the darker green.  Now pour another layer of each color using the same method.

 

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Swirling the LeavesMistletoe CP Soap Recipe Swirling the Leaves and Adding Berries

The green portion of the soap is meant to resemble leaves.  You will see the two green colors you poured will rest on the top of the loaf.  You will use your wooden skewer to swirl the two colors.  Place your skewer in one corner of the mold.  Then, move the skewer in an “S” motion until you get to the other side of the mold.

 

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Adding BerriesFinally,  we will be using the red soap batter to place dots resembling berries.  Using the decorating bottle filled with the red batter add dots to the top of the soap.  You will want to place them either on top of the green soap, or close to them.  Also, keep in mind you will be slicing your loaf.  You may want to pay attention to where you place them.  This way you aren’t slicing right through the middle of a bundle of berries.

Once your soap has set up, after about 24 hours, remove the mistletoe soap from the mold.  Lastly, once it is firm enough, slice it.  Of course, you will want to let it cure before using it.
