Recipes for Homemade Coconut Soap

Do you want to make your own homemade soap? There are many recipes out there, but the base of the whole project is mostly the same, so we will focus on a single project so we can cover it, allowing you to understand how things are made.  You can use the newly made soap for  many types of cleaning, such as kitchen cleaning, oven cleaning, washing dishes and of course hands and so on if you feel you need to, the choice is yours. From then on you can experiment on your own or find other recipes, but it all starts with the following ingredients:

  • 33 oz of coconut oil
  • 83 oz of lye
  • 54 oz of water

Three simple ingredients are all it takes to create soap, but you will need the following equipment to make it happen:

  • A crock pot
  • Stick blender
  • Thermometer
  • A digital scale
  • Glass measuring cups
  • Glass bowls
  • A long-handled plastic or wooden spoon
  • Rubber spatula
  • A sink or a bowl filled with a mix of vinegar and water to wash lye away from objects or yourself
  • Rubber gloves, long-sleeved shirt and even protective glasses
  • A soap mold
  • Parchment paper

Weigh your ingredients after you have them and set the crock pot to its low setting. Once that is done you need to add water to a glass or a ceramic bowl and take it outside with your lye and spoon. Make sure you do so outside to avoid the vapors of the process, and then slowly add the lye to the water while you mix it. Keep in mind it will get hot, so once it turns clear you can bring it inside. Let it cool off before you move on to the next step.

Place the coconut oil in a saucepan and heat it up to about 120°F and move on with the rest of the work, just make sure you have the thermometer away from the bottom of the pot. You can then put the coconut oil in your crock pot and on the low setting. Once that is done you can add the lye to it and stir it a few times carefully so it won’t splash outside.

Use a stick blender to mix it until it has the consistency and texture of pudding, which would be a sign you need to move on with the next step by covering it and letting it cook on the low setting. The oils will rise on the sides and then once again fold into the mix as it works, but it will take a varying amount of time, so make sure you check on it as you go.

The soap will be ready once it turns relatively translucent with no puddles of oil in its middle. You can use a pH test strip and wait for a few minutes to see whether it changes color. The pH needs to be around 7-10 with anything higher than that indicating it’s not done yet. You can also test it between your fingers to see whether it feels waxy – if it does then this means you’re good to go. Always make sure all lye has been converted or your brand new soap may end up burning you, so this is no joking matter.

Pour the mixture into your mold and let it cool, speeding things up in the fridge if you feel you need to. You would do well to cut the bar as soon as it is cool and firm, otherwise it will harden too much to be able to do so safely. You need to also let them dry and harden for at least two weeks if you want them to be in perfect condition for when you need them.

Soap Dye Color Morphing

soap dye color morphingSoap Dye Color Morphing

We’ve been experimenting with our soap colorants lately here at Nature’s Garden, going between our dyes and pigments. We’ve talked about our blue dye and how it can morph your cold process soap, but have you tried our reds or yellows? Well we have! Like with the blue colorants, we used our red and yellow FD&C Da Bomb dyes in cold process and melt and pour soap to show you the differences! As we all know, our pigmented colorants, or FUN Soap colors, will not cause any morphing problems in melt and pour or cold process, and we have conducted this experiment to see if the same is true for our yellow and red FD&C dyes!

Our red FD&C dye was experimented with in both our melt and soaps as well as cold process. In melt and pour, it brought an awesome bright red color as soon as it was added! However, when used in cold process at first we were concerned that it may have the same problems as our blue FD&C dye with color morphing. When I first mixed it into the soap, it was definitely red! However, after I poured it into the mold, it did start to look like an orange color! But after we let the soap sit for the required 24 hours we realized that it was a brick red. So don’t be concerned if you use our red FD&C dye in cold process and it looks orange at first! It does not color morph as badly as the blue! We do recommend using our FUN Soap pigmented colorants over the FD&C dyes for cold process soaps however since the Da Bomb soap dyes can bleed and fade over time.

With our yellow FD&C dye, as you can see in the pictures above, we have tried it out in both melt and pour soap and cold process. It brought a beautiful bright yellow to our melt and pour, and the same goes for our cold process. There was no doubt that it was yellow in cold process! Both of our yellow colorants, FD&C and FUN Soaps, work very well in melt and pour and cold process soap.

The usage of each different kind of colorant for your soaps is based on the pH levels as well as the actual saponification process. Melt and pour soap is technically soap that has already gone through the process of saponification, so it is only slightly alkaline. However, since cold process is made completely from scratch the pH levels are very high initially. Pigmented colors can withstand higher pH levels much better than dyes. The red and yellow soap dyes will not cause major color morphing, but we do recommend using our FUN Soap Colorants for cold process over our FD&C dyes. Please don’t hesitate to contact us here at Nature’s Garden if you have any thoughts, concerns, or questions!

With Christmas right around the corner, there is so much to do to get ready for it! Decorating, presents, making Christmas cookies, and the list goes on! Are you working on any new and exciting holiday projects? Or maybe you’re looking for a new unique gift to give to your loved ones for the holidays that is a way to remind them of what the Christmas season is really all about? Well, maybe you could try something with herbs! It just so happens that there are many herbs that have been used since Biblical times and are referenced in the Bible!

 

Aloe Vera- Aloe has been used since Biblical times to treat many wounds, burns, skin irritations and even constipation. It was also used as a perfume, and used to embalm the dead. Now a days, when used in soaping and cosmetics, aloe vera can be used to treat sunburns, acne, skin aging, and stretch marks. It is also used as a moisturizer, and has over 75 different nutrients such as enzymes and amino acids that help to keep you healthy.

Hyssop- Hyssop was used in the Old and New Testaments as a cleansing agent. It was used in Israelite ceremonial rituals as an inner cleanser. Now hyssop can be used to treat bronchitis, bruises, and coughing. It also helps to inhibit sweating, increase or induce menstrual flow, and has anti-fungal and anti-spasmodic properties.

hyssop

Myrrh- In the Bible, myrrh is one of the gifts the three wise men brought for the baby Jesus. It was also used as a salve to purify the dead and as an ingredient for anointing oil in the Tabernacle. Myrrh has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibiotic properties. It can be used in cosmetics and bath and body products to preserve the complexion, reduce swelling, skin rejuvenation, reduce wrinkles and to treat canker sores, bad breath, blisters, gum disease, sore throats and even bad breath.

It can also be used medicinally to treat depression, allergies, cancer, and help dieters to feel full.

cinnamon

Anise- All parts of this plant were used in biblical times. It was considered so valuable that it was even used as currency. It was also used for tithes and offerings.

Basil

basil Basil

Hi everyone! Are you looking for new crafts? Maybe a new herb to use in your bath and body products? Or maybe it’s your first time making soaps or bath and body products and you’re looking for a good herb to use? Well here it is! How about basil? Basil is a wonderful herb that can be used in a variety of ways in many different products and industries! It is most well known for being used in foods and for culinary purposes, but it can also be used for medicinal purposes, skin care, hair care, bath and body products and even soaping!

Basil, or otherwise known as ocimum basilicum, is an herb in the family Lamiaceae that is mainly used for culinary purposes. It is native to India, New Guinea, Southeast Asia, and China. It was first domesticated in India and has been cultivated for over 5,000 years there. The word basil comes from the Greek word βασιλεύ, meaning “king.” In India, it is believed that placing basil in the mouths of the dying ensures that they will reach God. Ancient Egyptians believed that basil would open the gates of heaven for their loved ones and in Europe, basil is placed in the hands of the dead to ensure a safe journey.

There are many medicinal benefits to using basil as well. There are anti-septic properties in the leaves that help treat wounds, ulcers, and cuts. It is also rich in vitamin A which helps to treat many eye problems such as sore eyes and blindness. Basil also helps to prevent glaucoma, cataracts, and degeneration of the eyes. Basil tea is said to help promote milk production in nursing mothers and it is said that mothers should take basil right before or after birth to promote blood circulation. The leaves are rich in phytonutrients and healing oils that treat malarial and dengue fevers. The leaves also help the body to form new blood cells and renew energy levels that can help stop weight gain. Basil can also be used to treat colds, sore throats, throat and mouth infections, headaches and migraines, restlessness and the pain caused from chicken pox, measles and small pox. It also helps to sharpen the mind and is a great stress reliever.

Many bath and body can contain basil as well. Many common products are lotions, ointments, creams, massage oils, bath teas, bath bombs, bath teas, facials tonics and masks, and shampoos and conditioners. Basil is a great exfoliant for the skin, and also helps to treat acne and prevent blackheads, and treats many skin infections and even ringworm. It can prevent gray hair and hair loss and also gives hair a better luster when used as an infusion in shampoos and conditioners. Basil also helps to strengthen the hair and rejuvenate the hair follicles. When basil is used for soap making, it gives the soap a wonderful aroma, is a gentle skin exfoliant and treats acne problems.

Wondering how to find this awesome product on our site? Just type “basil” in the search bar! That will take you directly to a page titled “Search Results for “Basil.”” It shows our ground basil leaf, and all of our wonderful basil fragrances! Our basil class is also available right there!
