172 grams of Distilled Water
Other Ingredients Needed:
Lime Mold from Flexible Molds
Start out making your limes. Measure and weigh out 112 grams of Diamond Clear soap, and melt it down in the microwave.
Once it is fully melted, go ahead and add 5 drops of Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant, and 4 drops of Kelly Green. Mix it together thoroughly. Then add 6 grams of Agave Lime Fragrance Oil and mix it together thoroughly.
Once you have completely mixed your soap, begin to pour your soap into the Lime Mold from Flexible Molds.
When it is fully poured, make sure to spray your soap with rubbing alcohol to avoid any air bubbles.
Then you can get your lye water ready. Measure and weigh out 172 grams of distilled water. Then add 65 grams of lye to your water. Make sure to mix it together thoroughly. Set your lye water aside to cool down. While you’re waiting for the lye to cool, you can get your butter and oils ready. In a mixing bowl, measure out 136 grams of Mango Butter, 136 grams of Coconut Oil, 91 grams of Castor Oil, and 91 grams of Palm Oil. Then go ahead and melt them down completely.
While you are waiting for these to cool, you can get your titanium dioxide ready for your white frosting. Mix 2 grams of titanium dioxide and 7 grams of Castor Oil together in a bowl until you have achieved a paste like consistency. Make sure to regularly check their temperature using your thermometer until they are both around 100 degrees Fahrenheit, within 10 degrees of each other. Then go ahead and pour your lye water into your bowl with your butters and oils. Mix it together thoroughly until you have brought it to a slight trace.
Once it is at trace, pour 230 grams of your mixture into a second mixing bowl. This will be used for your white frosting. Then in your original bowl, add 5 drops of Kelly Green and 6 of Lime Green. Mix it thoroughly. Once you have thoroughly mixed your color, add 23 grams of your fragrance oil to the bowl. Make sure to mix everything together thoroughly.
In the bowl for your white, add your titanium paste and mix it thoroughly.
Once it is mixed, go ahead and add 12 grams of fragrance, once again mixing thoroughly together.
Then take 3 of your Cupcake Molds, and with your green soap, fill each mold. What does not fill your molds will be used for the green frosting.
Next, take two Ziploc bags and cut just the tip off of one corner of each. In one bag, pour your white soap in, and pour the rest of your green into the other. Then take the bag with the white soap and begin to frost your soap.
Once you have finished the white frosting, do the same with the green frosting, styling them both however you want!
When you have finished frosting, take your lime soaps out of their mold and stick one into the top of each soap! Then make sure to allow your soap to sit for at least 24 hours before removing it from the molds.
Once you have removed the soaps from the molds, they will need at least 4-6 weeks before you can actually use them, giving them enough time to cure. But once those few weeks have passed, your soaps will be ready for you to enjoy! Make sure to check out all the rest of our free recipes and classes as well!
