How Do You Make Homemade Soap? How Do You Make Homemade Soap?

Are you a new soap maker? If so, then this is going to be a great blog for you! Today we are answering the following question; How Do You Make Homemade Soap? Since there are a few different ways to make soap, we are going to talk about the two basic methods for soap making. First, we will talk about Melt and Pour Soap, which will include things like adding colorant, choosing scents, and finding the right mold. Then, we will talk about how to make Cold Process Soap, which includes formulating the recipe, choosing a mold, scenting, and adding colorant. While these two methods are similar in a few ways, there are many differences between the two and ether one can be a better option depending on the situation. So, let’s get started in learning all about soap!

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: What are the Different Types of Soap?How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: What are the Different Types of Soap?

Before we introduce you to soap making, we need to talk about the difference between Melt and Pour Soap and Cold Process Soap. Both can be made at home, but they each require different steps. Melt and Pour soap is the simplest option of the two, as soap batch has already been created. Plus, the lye has already cured and you can use the soap immediately. All you have to do is melt your soap base and create the appearance you want for your batch. The other option is Cold Process Soap, which allows you to formulate your bars to be perfect for your needs. While this method has a bit more time invested, there is a lot more that you can do creatively with CP Soap.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Melt and Pour Soap Making

If you are just ready to get to making cute soaps, then you may want to start with melt and pour soap. While you can’t change the properties of the soap base too much, this method of soap making gives you the freedom to make some pretty amazing soaps.

While you can’t choose every ingredient, you can choose between several quality soap bases that will be sure to clean and moisturize your skin. We have soap bases that contain real honey, skin loving goats milk melt and pour soap base, and so many more. Regardless of what you are looking for in a bar of soap, you will find that all of our soap bases have quality ingredients that are hard to beat. You can look though all of the melt and pour soap bases available at Natures Garden.

There are a few different routes you can take with coloring your melt and pour soap. If you are trying to create a more natural bar of soap, then you may want to use herbs to color your soap. This is a good idea for face soaps, as well. So, you soap will have a more natural hue and will have the added beneficial properties of the herb. You can find suggested herbs for colorants on our Soap Coloring Class. Another great option for coloring are Da Bomb of FUN Soap Colorants, which will provide bright colors that are perfect for creating vibrant hues.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Scenting MP Soap

There are a few ways to scent your homemade soaps. Some people are curious about how to scent soap naturally. Of course, we could use essential oils, which are all derived from natural sources. You can find your favorite natural scent on the Essential Oils page of our website. Since there is more variety, other people have turned to fragrance oils. We at Natures Garden have hundreds of diverse fragrance oils, which you can find alphabetically by clicking here. For each scent you will find whether it can be used for soap and what amount you can use. So, there is no need to worry whether the scent you are getting won’t work for melt and pour soap.

Finally, you are going to want to choose the soap mold for your recipe. This will depend on how big you want you soap to be. If you are going to be creating an embed or want to make small soaps for guests, then you may want to look at our Guest Soap Molds. For larger bars, you can look through the Mold Market Soap Molds or the Silicone Soap Molds. These sections have larger shapes and even a loaf mold, which is perfect for creating a big loaf from which you can cut bars of soap.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap? : Cold Process Soap Making

Once you learn the basics, making soap from scratch is such a fun process! You can create a bar that has all the best properties to make a batch that is tailored to be just right for you. All you need to do is choose your favorite ingredients and their amounts to formulate a recipe. Then, you can get creative with scented oils, soap molds, and soap colorants!

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Soap Making SafetyHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Soap Making Safety

One of the most important parts of making soap from scratch is safety, as cp soap uses lye. So, you will want to tie your hair back, wear safety goggles, clothing that covers arms and legs, closed shoes, and a face mask. You can read more about soap making safety and find the soaping safety supplies we offer by clicking here. Also, you will want to have a well ventilated area to create your lye solution. Another very important thing to remember is that you should only pour lye into water and make sure to go slowly while stirring. Don’t let these precautions scare you though. You will be perfectly fine as long as you are wearing your safety gear and are being cautious!

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: How to Create a Soap RecipeHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: How to Create a Soap Recipe

There are all kinds of properties that you may want to have in your batch of soap. Many people want to know how to make moisturizing soap, how to make sensitive skin soap, or any other properties. The best way to do it is formulate your very own soap recipe and the simplest way to create your very own uniquely perfect soap recipe is the Soap Calculator. All you have to do is enter the oils and butters that you will be using in the recipe and it will tell you all the characteristics of the bar before you even make it. From this point you can tweak the amounts or switch out an ingredient to create a batch that is just right.


How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Adding Scent to CP Soap

While many of the same scents can be used in both CP and MP soaps, there are more factors to consider for cold process soap. Again, you can either use a fragrance oil or an essential oil. But, the fragrance oil’s have the potential to change the consistency and emulsification of your batch. So, you have to be wary of ricing, where the batch clumps and looks like rice pudding. Also, a scent could cause acceleration. This is when the trace happens sooner, which is when the soap emulsifies. The batch will get thick enough to leave a trace of soap on top of the batch after scooping some out and drizzling it back in. Lastly, you could have separation of the fragrance or discoloration of your finished soap.

Some fragrance oils won’t cause any issues and others may cause a few of these issues, its all about the chemical make up. For instance, vanilla scents will often discolor to a dark color due to the vanillin and may need a Vanilla White Stabilizer. If you are curious about a specific fragrance oil, then head over to the Natures Garden YouTube channel. We have tested every scent in one of our soap recipes to show exactly how the scent performs in soap! While we do have a brief explanation of the scent performance on each Fragrance’s page, this allows you to actually see whats happening to the soap.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Coloring CP SoapHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Coloring CP Soap

Again, you can use either herbs or soap pigments to color you soaps. There a few pigmented herbs that can be used to naturally color your soap. In our coloring class, we have options you can use for creating yellow, green, brown, red, and purple hues. But, we have found that Da Bomb and FUN soap colorants are more stable and vivid in cold process soap. While these colorants are created in a laboratory now, they  are able to create versions that are more pure and better than what was previously mined. One example of CP soap that takes the best of both options is the Total Hot Man CP Soap Recipe, which includes Activated Charcoal and Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Choosing a CP Soap MoldHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Choosing a CP Soap Mold

Once your batch of cold process soap has reached trace and is ready to pour, it will be hot. So, you are going to need to make sure that your mold can handle it. Otherwise, your soap mold could end up melting and making a big mess. This means that it would be unlikely that you will be able to make small cold process guest soaps. However, most Mold Market Soap Molds will hold up just fine! Also, all of the SIlicone Soap Molds are sturdy enough to handle the soap. If you are looking to create a loaf of soap, then you may want to try the Silicone Soap Mold- 4 Loaf Molds. Alternatively, you can use a mold like the Silicone Soap Mold- 6 Cavity Flower to create individual bars in fun designs.

Rainbow MP Soap RecipeRainbow MP Soap Recipe

Sometimes our inspirations come from the simplest things.  Well, over the past few weeks I have been testing, creating videos, and packaging cold process soaps using Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants.  Once they were packaged and labeled, I took them to Shannon to display in the store.  We carry 21 of these colorants and I tested each soap colorant using five different amounts.  So, this meant that we had over 100 soaps to display.  Shannon decided to display them on a round, tiered display in our store, see the display here.  When I saw how she displayed them, I was immediately inspired to create a variety of rainbow themed recipes that will go on the bottom tier of her display.  So, below, you will find my Rainbow MP Soap Recipe, the second of several recipes we will be creating inspired by this display.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your SoapRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Soap

First, I prepared all of my soap.  This means weighing out and cutting up all of the soap for each of the seven layers.  You will need your scale, mixing bowls, and clear melt and pour soap.  Now, in each of your seven mixing bowls, weigh out and cut up 130 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Purple Soap Layer

Now, you will need one of your bowls of clear melt and pour soap.  You will also need the deep purple FUN Soap Colorant, fragrance oil, and Vanilla White.  Finally, you will need your 4 loaf mold, and your bottle of rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Purple Soap LayerSo, place your mixing bowl in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  If you notice that the soap has not completely melted, you may need about 10 more seconds.  This will all just depend on your microwave.  Once your soap has melted, add 4 drops of the purple soap colorant.  Then, add 6 grams of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil and 6 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Use a mixing spoon to blend the ingredients.  Finally, pour your melted purple soap into the loaf mold.  Spray the melted soap with rubbing alcohol to release the air bubbles.  Allow the purple soap to setup completely before moving on.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Orange Soap Layer

Now, we will prepare our orange layer of soap.  For this layer, we will use Natures Garden’s Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant.  So, you will need this colorant along with another bowl of soap base you weighed out earlier.  In addition, you will need your Angel Wings Fragrance Oil and Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Also, place your mold in front of you and you rubbing alcohol close.

Lastly, once the soap has setup, remove it from the mold.  Then, slice it into strips.  You want them to be about 3/4 inch wide and about 5 3/4 inches.  So, you want to be sure you are slicing them long ways.  Finally, do the same with the soap in the cavity of the mold.  You will notice that due to the addition of vegetable glycerin, the soap is nice and flexible.  This will allow us to bend them into a rainbow shape and later place them on top of our whipped soap.  Go ahead and shape each rainbow so that you have them ready for the top of the soap.
