Spearmint Soap Problems

spearmint soap problemsSpearmint Soap Problems

Hello everyone! As you know, I’ve recently been making many different soap recipes and learning more and more about the soap making process. We posted a blog about the wonderful Spearmint Soap I made using our Spearmint Fragrance Oil, and now I’m back to tell you all about some of the problems I had making that gorgeous gray and green soap. That beautiful soap was actually my second time making this recipe, and as I’m sure you’ve figured out, the first time didn’t go so well! In the first recipe, instead of doing green and gray swirls, I instead tried out just an all-over green base.

One of my first problems was with my white topping for the soap. I had researched so many different pictures and had seen so many lovely whipped soap toppings that I thought this was one soap I could easily whip up and create myself! However, once I had prepared and poured my green soap base, I was waiting for my white topping to set up to a frosting consistency so that I would be able to fluff it all over the top of the soap. However, while I was waiting, I panicked and poured the white on top way too soon. This caused my top to not be able to peak as well as not being fluff-like. Because I poured too soon and my topping was still not fully set up, this also caused part of the white to sink into the green soap since the green soap was not fully set up either. You can definitely see the sinking after the soap was cut, there were no straight lines and you can see the spots where the topping sank right in! So for all of you other soap makers out there, always make sure to give your topping enough time to set up, or else you will end up with your topping sinking into your base! You also won’t be able to peak the top like you want!

Another big problem I had was using way too much green colorant for the base of my soap. Instead of coming out with a beautiful mint green color like the remake, the green of my first Spearmint Soap was a dark hunter-like green. While there is nothing wrong with a hunter green, this color did not go with the Spearmint theme. Once I completed the remake, this soap turned out absolutely beautiful! Have any of you experienced soap makers out there had any mistakes like these? I would love to hear about them! Please contact me here at Nature’s Garden, or you can always contact us here with any thoughts, concerns, or questions that you may have!

Doesn’t this amazing combination of green, gray, and white just make you extremely happy? We have used our Shea Butter Soap Recipe for the base.

Ingredients:

272 grams of Shea Butter

181 grams of Palm Oil

272 grams of Olive Oil

181 grams of Coconut Oil

125 grams of Lye

345 grams of Distilled Water

30 grams of Titanium Dioxide

68 grams of Spearmint Fragrance Oil

4 drops of Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

2 drops of Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Other Ingredients Needed:

Spearmint Leaves

Square Loaf Mold Market Molds

Safety Glasses

Safety Gloves

Safety Mask

Thermometer

Scale

Vinegar

Mixing Bowls

Spatulas

Stick Blender

 

Directions:

spearmint soap

Always start with safety first! Make sure you are wearing your safety glasses, gloves, and mask! Once you are protected, you can prepare your lye water. Measure and weigh out 345 grams of distilled water. Then measure and weigh out 125 grams of lye, and add it to your water. Always add lye to water, never add water to lye as this can cause an explosion! Mix your lye water together thoroughly, and then set it aside to cool down.

 

spearmint soap

 

While you are waiting for your lye water to cool, you can get your oils and butters ready. Measure and weigh out 272 grams of Olive Oil, 181 grams of Palm Oil, 272 grams of Shea Butter, and 181 grams of Coconut Oil. Then completely melt these down, and set them aside to cool as well.

 

 

spearmint soapAs you’re waiting for your butters and oils and lye water to cool, you can prepare your colorants. In separate mixing bowls, add 4 drops of Neon Green colorant to one, and 2 drops of Black Oxide to another. Then measure and weigh out 8 grams of Titanium Dioxide in a bowl and pour just a little bit of your oils into it. Mix it together until it has become a paste-like consistency. This will be for your white swirl. For your white top, in a separate bowl, measure and weigh out 22 grams of Titanium Dioxide and pour a little bit of your oils, again making a paste-like consistency.

Using your thermometer, keep checking the temperatures of your lye water and oils until they have reached around room temperature (72 degrees Fahrenheit) and are within ten degrees of each other. Then carefully pour your lye water into your oils, and thoroughly mix them until they have come to a light trace.

 

spearmint soap

 

 

After you have come to trace, pour 461 grams of your mixture into a another mixing bowl and add your Titanium Dioxide paste with 22 grams. Mix it thoroughly and then add 23 grams of Spearmint fragrance, once again thoroughly mixing. Then set this bowl aside to let it sit and set up to become your topping.

 

spearmint soap

 

Next, into the bowls with your green and black colorants, add 308 grams of your mixture to each. In a third bowl, add 308 grams of your mix and add your white paste with the 8 grams of Titanium Dioxide. Thoroughly mix these together until you have achieved an all over gray color, all over mint green, and an all over white.

 

spearmint soap

 

 

 

Add 15 grams of your Spearmint fragrance to each of these and mix them together thoroughly.

 

 

spearmint soap

 

 

Then using the in the pot swirl method in another bowl, pour each of your three colors into the bowl. pouring each into a separate section.

 

 

 

spearmint soap

 

 

 

Using a spatula, start at the edge of the bowl and drag it in a straight line all the way across.

Then place the spatula right where two colors begin to mix and drag it in a full circle around the bowl.

After you have swirled your soap, you can begin to pour it into your mold. If you carefully pour it from side to side using the “granny pour” method, this will help you achieve an even prettier swirl!

 

 

spearmint soap

 

 

Once your soap is completely poured, make sure your topping is set up to about the consistency of cake frosting and then pour it on top of your soap. You can peak it with your spatula.

After all of your topping is on your soap, lightly sprinkle some Spearmint leaves over top!

 

 

Once your soap is finished, you will need to let it sit to set up for at least 24 hours before removing it from your mold. Once it is removed, let your soap sit for at least 4 to 6 weeks, giving it enough time to fully cure and become less alkaline.
