MP Embed CP Recipe

This entry was posted in cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies, soap recipe and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

mp embed cpMP Embed CP Recipe

There have been a few times that we have made a recipe that involved both melt and pour soap and cold process soap.  The first was Baileys Spotlight Cold Fashioned Lemonade Soap and the second time was Cindy’s Blackberry Sage Soap.  However, both times the melt and pour soap was placed on top of the cold process soap.  This time, we wanted to create a recipe using melt and pour soap inside of cold process soap.

The theme of this mp embed cp recipe was centered around Natures Garden’s Bubble Luscious Fragrance Oil.  With summer time quickly approaching, we thought this would be a wonderful fragrance oil to spotlight in a fun recipe.

Now since Bubble Luscious Fragrance Oil is a childhood memory scent, we wanted to visually capture the essence of fun, carefree, summertime memories.  Plus, Bubble Luscious scent is loved by children and adults alike, so we wanted a soap recipe that would appeal to all ages.

Once we figured out what we wanted the soap to look like, it was then time to figure out the specifics.  We knew that we would have a creamy look from the cold process soap. This would be the perfect look for the main portion of the loaf, including the creamy, whipped looking top.  But, in order to accomplish a transparent look in the soap curls, we needed to use the Melt and Pour Soap.SLS Free Clear .  You can also use our diamond clear melt and pour soap (however, we are currently waiting for a shipment of it to arrive).

Now, these transparent curls would be used both in the cold process soap and also for a decorative topping to the soap.  However, since we also wanted to include a white swirl in the soap, Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap  was also included in the mp embed cp portion.  We felt that through the combination of both soap mediums (cp and mp), we would be able to present a really fun project to match this really fun scent and quite the playful and swirly design too.

So, if you are interested in making your very own homemade MP embed CP recipe like this which makes a total of about 4.5 pounds of soap; here are all of the ingredients and supplies that you will need:

For the Cold Process Portion of the Soap, you will need:
Water
Lye
Avocado Oil 
COCONUT Oil-76
Shea Butter
Cocoa Butter
CASTOR Oil- 16 oz.
Sodium Lactate 
Bubble Luscious Fragrance Oil

To achieve your bubble gum colors for the cold process soap, you will need:
Fun Soap Colorant Neon Pink
Titanium Dioxide (for the white whipped topping)

As for the other supplies and soaping utensils, you will need:
Safety Gear:  Safety GlassesSafety GLOVESSafety MASK
THERMOMETER 
Square Loaf Mold
Scale
Stick Blender
Mixing Bowl
Spatula

For the Melt and Pour Portion of the Soap, you will need:
SLS Free Clear Melt and Pour Soap
Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap
Bubble Luscious Fragrance Oil

To achieve your colored curls here are the Fun Soap Colorants you will need:
Fun Soap Colorant Deep Purple
Fun Soap Colorant Tomato Red

Other utensils you will need for the melt and pour soap portion will be:
Cutting Board
Knife
Microwave
Microwave safe glass container
Mixing Spoon (wood or stainless steel)
Rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle- to eliminate any bubbles in your soap
Wax Paper
Ruler

Now, here is the step by step instruction with pictures included:

lay out your wax paper
Step 1:
  On a flat surface, cut and lay down 3 larger pieces of wax paper.

preparing the purple swirls

Step 2:  Prepare the Purple Swirls:  Weigh out and melt 200 grams of Clear M&P Soap.  Stir gently.  Once your soap is melted, add 35 drops of fun soap colorant deep purple and 10 grams of bubble luscious fragrance oil.  Stir well.

pouring the purple soap

Step 3:  Next, pour all of the purple soap unto one sheet of wax paper.  If you have any air bubbles, spritz the soap with alcohol. 

preparing the red soap
Step 4:  Prepare the Red Swirls:  Again weigh out and melt 200 grams of  Clear M&P Soap.  When melted, this time add 10 drops of fun soap colorant tomato red and 10 grams of Bubble Luscious fragrance oil.  Stir.

pouring the red soap
Step 5:  Once scented and colored, pour the red soap onto another piece of wax paper.  Spritz with alcohol if needed.

preparing the white soap
Step 6:  Prepare the White Swirls:  Weigh out and melt 200 grams of Goats Milk M&P Soap in the microwave.  Once melted, add 10 grams of  bubble luscious fragrance oil.  Stir well.

pouring the white soap

Step 7:  Finally, pour the white soap unto the last sheet of wax paper.  If necessary spritz with alcohol.

For now, this is all the melt and pour steps you can do.  It is now time to start the cold process steps.

Here is the cold process soap amounts:
431 grams of Water
154 grams of Lye
238 grams of Avocado Oil
238 grams of COCONUT Oil-76
295 grams of Shea Butter
283 grams of Cocoa Butter
79 grams of CASTOR Oil- 16 oz.
40 grams of Sodium Lactate 
71 grams of Bubble Luscious Fragrance Oil

safety gear
Step 1: 
Put on your safety gear.

adding titanium dioxide to soaping oils

Step 2:  First, make your lye solution.  Then, weigh out and melt the soaping ingredients.  Once melted, separate out 30 grams and place it in one of your mixing bowls.  To this add 7 grams of titanium dioxide.  Stir well.  Completing this step will help you smoothly incorporate the titanium dioxide in the soap batter.  Set this bowl aside.

adding the sodium lactate

Step 3:  Once the lye solution has cooled, stir in the 40 grams of sodium lactate.

the melt and pour embeds

Step 4:  Back to the Melt and Pour Soap:  Remove the purple, red, and white soap from the wax paper.  Then, trim off any jagged edges.  Next, cut 3 x 3 inch squares out of each color.  Make as many 3 x 3 squares as possible until all of the soap has been used.  Then, gently curl the soap in a loose fashion.  The one thing we can not stress enough is loose.  This will help the soap batter fill the embeds so that you do not have air pockets. Once all of the soap has been loosely curled, place all 3 colored curls into your square loaf mold.  With the jagged leftovers of the soap, make as many curls as you can.  These will be used to decorate the whipped topping.

adding the fragrance oil
Step 5: 
When both the soaping oils and the lye solution are ready, combine them together.  Then, using your stick blender, emulsify.  Next, add your fragrance oil.  Stick blend again to light trace.

coloring the soap

Step 6:  When your soap batter is at light trace, get your bowl with the titanium dioxide.  Now, place 400 grams of soap batter into it.  Then, to the remaining soap batter, add the 10 grams of fun soap colorant neon pink.  Use your stick blender to incorporate, but do not mix too long; you still want your soap batter to be on the thin side.

pouring the soap into the mold

Step 7:  Slowly pour the soap batter into the mold.  This will also help to eliminate air pockets in your soap.  When the mold is filled, gently tap it to release any air pockets.

placing the whipped topping

Step 8:  Next, stick blend the white soap bowl.  Then, set aside.  Once the pink soap has thickened enough, start to carefully heap the white soap on top to resemble whipped topping.

decorate the whipped topping
Step 9: 
Finally, place some of the m& p curls (red and purple) on top.

Step 10:  After 48 hours, place the soap into the freezer for about 4 hours.  Then, remove the soap from the mold and let it reach room temperature.  When ready, cut the soap into slices.  Allow them to further cure before using.

That is it.  Although this post may seem daunting, it really is not that bad, especially if you have soaped before.  In the end, this homemade project is totally worth it.  You will love how delicious your soap looks and smells!
