Rustic Tree Trunk Soap RecipeRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe

Lately, we have been looking to bring the outdoors in with some of our fragrance fun recipes.  Well, this soap recipe does just that.  Our next soap making recipe was inspired by, what else, nature.  Natures Garden is getting back to nature with this tree trunk inspired soap scented with Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil.  So, read below to find out how we made our Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Some of the Ingredients We Will Be Using

Before we begin, we will talk about some of the ingredients we will be using.  It is important to understand the importance of some of the ingredients in this recipe.  Each item we will be using has a purpose and we will talk about some of these below.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Crackling Firewood Fragrance OilRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Crackling Firewood Fragrance Oil

Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a masculine arrangement that begins with top notes of herbaceous pine, balsam, and citrus bergamot; leading to middle notes of white flowers and earthy sandalwood; sitting on base notes of woodsy patchouli and violet.  Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil is one of our best selling candle and soap scents.  It is popular all year long, but is even more popular in the fall and winter months.

Top Notes: pine, balsam, bergamot
Mid Notes: white flowers, sandalwood
Base Notes: patchouli, violet

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base

Next, we will talk about the soap base we will be using in this soap recipe.  Our Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe uses Natures Garden’s Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base.  This soap base is wonderful.  It will leave you with a fabulous squeaky clean feeling.  Our soya milk melt and pour soap comes in a two pound slab that has guide lines to help you cut.  In addition,  this base contains no SLS and no added detergents. Of course, none of our products are tested on animals.   Finally, all of our soap bases are gluten-free.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: FUN Soap ColorantsRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: FUN Soap Colorants

First, you should know that the FUN Soap Colorants are simply pigments dispersed in vegetable glycerin.  They are my favorite colorants to work with.  One half ounce of a FUN Soap Colorant will color about ten pounds of soap when used in a white soap base.  The main reason why these are my favorite colorant is because it is so easy to get a nice bright color in white melt and pour soap.  In addition, these soap dyes a perfect in cold process soap.  They come through true to color in any type of soap.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Vanilla White Color StabilizerRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Natures Garden is often asked about Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  So, I thought I would take a minute to talk about our vanilla white.  This is used in a variety of bath and body products, but it is not for use in candles.  When used in a body product, it will help prevent discoloration when it is caused by the vanillin.  While there are a ton of ingredients that can cause discoloration it is most often the vanilla content that causes it.  So, vanilla white will prevent this type of discoloration.  However, it will not prefect discoloration caused by other ingredients.  So, if the fragrance oil does not have a vanillin content listed in the description, do not use vanilla white.

We are also asked about the usage rate and the aroma of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  First, our recommendation usage rate for vanilla white is one part fragrance oil to one part vanilla white.  So, in this recipe, we use 58 grams of the Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil, so we use 58 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  In addition, I would like to mention that yes, the vanilla white does have an aroma to it.  However, we have never experienced a time that the aroma of the stabilizer over-powered any of our fragrance oils.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Glad Press'n SealRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Glad Press’n Seal

Next, let’s talk about the Glad plastic wrap that we used.  Now, we tried a few different methods, including regular plastic wrap to achieve the tree trunk look in our soap.  However, since the plastic wrap is thicker, it worked perfectly.  The Pess’n Seal Wrap creased perfectly and allowed us to create folds in the wrap that looked like tree bark.  The Glad Press’n Seal Wrap can be purchased at your local grocery store.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Vegetable GlycerinRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Vegetable Glycerin

In this recipe, we use vegetable glycerin for our Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe.  We use the vegetable glycerin to make the melt and pour soap pliable.  We will start by pouring the brown soap into a cake pan, then, it will be removed and placed into the mold.  The addition of vegetable glycerin allows us to shape the brown soap, bending it to the shape of the mold without breaking or cracking.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Prior to Starting

Before you begin preparing this melt and pour soap recipe, we recommend wearing protective clothing along with a hair net and gloves.  Also, go ahead and clean your work area and place all of your supplies in the area that you will be working.  Finally, in your bullet bottle, add rubbing alcohol and place one of your fine mist sprayers on top.  Now, you are ready to begin making your tree trunk melt and pour soap.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Cake PanRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Cake Pan

Prior to melting your soap, you will need to prepare you cake pan for your rustic tree trunk soap.  This pan will be used for the brown portion of the soap once it is melted.  So, place your pan in front of you.  Then, cover the bottom of the pan with the Press’n Seal Wrap.  Next, you want to bunch the plastic wrap up a bit.  The goal is to create vertical creases in the wrap.  This is what will create the bark like look in the soap.  Once you have prepared your pan, go ahead and move on to preparing your soap.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown SoapRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap

First, we will prepare our brown soap.  So go ahead and get your cake pan out.  Then, cut up, weigh, and melt 300 grams Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap.  You want to melt your mp soap base in thirty second intervals in the microwave until the soya milk soap is in a liquid state.  Make sure you are using a microwave safe dish.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown SoapOnce your soap is melted, add 15 grams Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil.  Then, add your colorant.  You will need to add 7 grams brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 4 grams black oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix to incorporate your colorant.  Finally, add 30 grams of your vegetable glycerin.  Stir to fully blend all of your ingredients.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Brown SoapRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Brown Soap

Once your pan is prepared, lined with wrap and your soap is ready, it is time for your brown tree trunk soap to be poured.  So, now, we will be pouring your brown soap.  Place your pan in front of you and pour the melted soap into the cake pan.  You want to fill the about half of the pan.  Then, spray the poured soap with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles that have formed in the soap base from pouring.  Finally, allow the soap to setup before moving on.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Placing Your Brown Soap Into the Round MoldRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Placing Your Brown Soap Into the Round Mold

Once your brown soap has setup, go ahead and remove it from the cake pan.  You will notice that the soap is flexible, this is due to the addition of the vegetable glycerin.  We will trim and shape this to the shape of round loaf mold.  It will need to be the exact size of the mold.  So, trim the soap to the length of the soap mold.  Then, place it inside the round loaf soap mold and press it inside the mold.  You want to make sure that the soap fits tightly in the mold.  Finally, trim the edges of the soap so that it is the same length and width of the soap mold.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe:  Prepare the Cream Colored SoapRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe:  Prepare the Cream Colored Soap

Now, we will prepare the cream colored portion of our soap in our Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe.  This portion will be the remaining portion of the soap.  The cream soap will be poured on top of the brown soap and create the inner part of the tree trunk.

First, weigh out and melt 1162 grams Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap.  Melt the soap base in the microwave in 30-second intervals.  Melt it until it is in a liquid state.  Be careful not to over-heat the base.

Next, we will color the melted soap.  You will need to add 4 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Then, stir to disperse to colorant.  Now, add the fragrance oil and vanilla white.  You will need to add 58 grams of Natures Garden’s Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil and 58 grams Vanilla White Stabilizer.  Finally, mix the base to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe:  Pouring the Cream Colored SoapRustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe:  Pouring the Cream Colored Soap

Once your soap has been colored to a cream color, and scented with Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil, it is time to pour the melted soap into the round loaf mold.  Prior to pouring the cream colored soap, you will want to spray the brown layer with rubbing alcohol.  This will help the two layers adhere to each other.  Make sure you spray the previous layer thoroughly.  So, once you have sprayed the brown soap, pour the cream soap right on top.  Finally, once again, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles that may have formed.  Then, allow the soap to setup before moving on.

Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe: Slicing the Soap

Once your soap has setup, you can remove it from your round loaf mold.  Then, go ahead and slice the soap loaf. We recommend using your soap making mitre box and mitre box cutter.  So, place your soap in the mitre box.  Then, use the mitre box cutter to slice your rustic tree trunk soap.  After you have sliced your tree trunk soap, it can be used right away.

We at Natures Garden hope that you have enjoyed creating the Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil scented Rustic Tree Trunk Soap Recipe with us.  How have you been inspired by nature?  We would love to see how you are using nature in your handmade soap, handcrafted candles, and homemade cosmetics.  Post pictures of your finished creations on our Facebook page.  In addition, you can also tag us on Instagram and Twitter @ngscents.  For even more fragrance fun, check out our free classes and recipes.  All of these classes and recipes are available in PDF form right on our website.

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Green Soap 

We will begin by preparing the green soap. A small amount of the green soap will be used for the confetti portion of the soap. The remaining green soap will be used in the loaf portion of the soap.

First, you will need a dish that is safe for the microwave. In this dish, weigh out 415 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Now, melt the clear mp soap base in your microwave. You will want to melt in 30-second bursts, stirring occasionally.  Continue to melt the soap until all the melt and pour soap is in a melted state.  While you are waiting for the soap to melt, lay out a piece of wax paper.

Next, we will be adding our soap colorant.  Now, add the 10 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir well to completely incorporate the green colorant.  Once all of the soap is colored, add the 17 grams Fruitcake fragrance oil and 17 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Mix to blend the fragrance oil and vanilla white.

Finally, pour about 130 grams of the green colored soap onto your sheet of wax paper.  Alternatively, you can use an extra mold to pour your thin layer like I did.  Spray this soap with rubbing alcohol to eliminate any air bubbles.  Allow this to setup.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare your Green Soap

 

 

The remaining green soap will be used for the green portion of your loaf.  So, slowly pour the rest of the green soap into the mold. Then, spray the green soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles you see in your soap loaf. Next, just allow your soap to setup.

Once the green soap that was poured on the wax paper has setup, we will begin cutting our confetti.  So, place your soap on a cutting board.  Then, begin cutting the soap into small squares.  Put the cut up soap in a small bowl and set it aside for now.  We will come back to it in just a bit.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red Soap

We will once again use a portion of the soap for the confetti and the rest will be used in the red layer of the soap loaf. So, cut and melt 415 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in the same manner you prepared the green soap. Once again, while the soap is melting, lay out a piece of wax paper.

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red Soap

 

Now, remove the soap from the microwave and add the 9 drops of tomato red soap colorant, 17 grams Fruitcake fragrance oil, and 17 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Stir your soap to completely incorporate the colorant and Fruitcake fragrance oil completely.  Then, pour about 130 grams of the melted red soap onto the wax paper.  Allow the soap that you poured on the wax paper to setup.  You can set the bowl of remaining red soap base aside, we will come back to it.

Next, once the red confetti soap has setup, use a knife to cut the soap into very small confetti like squares.  Once you have cut them, you can place the red soap in the bowl with the green soap.  Then, go ahead and mix them together.  This will make adding it to your soap easier later.

Once your green layer of soap has setup completely, you can prepare the white layer.  So, in a mixing bowl, melt 570 grams of Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Then, add your Fruitcake fragrance oil and Vanilla White,  Finally, use a spoon to mix the soap.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your White Soap

 

Now, spray your previous green soap layer with rubbing alcohol.  Next, pour the melted white soap directly on top of the green layer.  Then, while the white soap base is still in its melted state, drop half of the red and green confetti into the white soap layer.  Finally, spray the white layer with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles that have formed in the soap.  Allow the white layer to setup before moving on.

Now we will melt the red soap layer.  Once the white layer has setup, you will need to remelt the red soap base you set aside earlier.  Remember, you want to melt the soap in 30 second bursts only until it is in a liquid state.  Be careful not to overheat the soap.

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Pour Your Red Soap Layer

 

Next, we will pour the top red layer. So, once again, spray the previous white soap layer with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the red soap directly on top of it.  Finally, spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Allow the red soap layer to setup.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap BaseChristmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

Now, we will be preparing the whipped topping for our soap.  You will need to move rather quickly through the next few steps.  First, in a mixing bowl, weigh out the 150 grams of the Natures Garden whipped topping, 18 grams if the vanilla white, 18 grams of the Fruitcake fragrance oil, and 17 grams vegetable glycerin.  Use a hand mixer to bring the whipped soap base to a whipped frosting consistency.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

 

Next, simply place the 150 grams of your Natures Garden Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap in a mixing bowl.  Then use your microwave to melt the soap base.  Melt it to a liquid state, use caution not to overheat the soap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the soap is melted, pour it into the mixing bowl with the whipped soap and the vegetable glycerin.  Begin beating the mixture with a hand held mixer.  When the soap looks like whipped frosting, stop beating.

Next, we will begin topping our soap loaf.  So, using your spoon quickly scoop the soap frosting on top of the soap.  You want it to look like whipped cream on top of the soap.

When all of the soap has been covered with, you can begin adding the confetti.  You will use the remaining red and green confetti to top your whipped cream topping.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits


This entry was posted in activated charcoal, melt and pour soap, natural melt and pour soap, Natures Garden, soap, soap method, soapmaking and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Melt and Pour Soap BenefitsMelt and Pour Soap Benefits

We at Natures Garden would like to share some of the melt and pour soap benefits with customers that may not know too much about soaping. There are quite a few different methods one can use to create soaps, so it can be a bit overwhelming for new soapers. Every method has some benefits that you may enjoy, but you must choose the method that will be best for you and the situation you are in.

While many find melt and pour soap to be one of the easier ways to make soap at home, even the most experienced soapmaker may come back to this method. Honestly, it all depends on what the soaps are needed for and the time you have available. So, at one point or another, anyone can benefit from knowing a bit about this method. If you have never used melt and pour soap or are thinking about trying this method again, then we’d like to share with you all of the great things about melt and pour soap. So, here is why melt and pour soap is a great soap making method!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Great for Beginning Soap MakersMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Great for Beginning Soap Makers

Due to a few different aspects of this soap making method, beginning soap makers may want to start with this method. This is an easy way to introduce soap making into your crafting. This method won’t have you working with lye right out of the gate. This can help prevent you from feeling overwhelmed with everything all at once. Instead, a new soap maker can get used to the time sensitive nature of cooling soap, adding fragrance oils, and coloring soap. Plus, this method skips right to the fun of creating to let you experience all the fun. Melt and pour soap allows you to have fun trying out soap making before jumping into more complex methods. You can create very simple soaps that are still cute with this method without taking too much time or skill to complete.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Creativity and Additional Ingredients

There is so much that you can do with melt and pour soap! As long as you have some molds, additives, and a creative mind you can make anything you want. Further, you can look to our Melt & Pour Soap Recipes page for soap making inspiration and ideas. In addition, you can print out the step by step soap making tutorials for each project on that page. While melting soap and pouring it into molds may sound like it is simple and boring, we can show you that there is so much that you can create with this method of soap making.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Manipulating the Shape of the SoapMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Manipulating the Shape of the Soap

Since melt and pour soap will take on the shape of whatever it sets up in, it is pretty easy to shape the soap into whatever you’d like. For example, our Lollipop Soap Recipe used a flat shaped soap layer and cut it into strips that we curled to create a lollipop appearance. Also, the Fresh Fallen Leaves Soap Recipe used straws to have soap shaped like a tree trunk. This along with the melt and pour soap leaves created a very pretty soap! Plus, you can make more simple soaps that are super cute like the Neapolitan Cupcake Soap Recipe, which uses a layered cupcake base and whipped frosting on top.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Adding Herbs and MicaMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Adding Herbs and Mica

Also, you can incorporate micas and even herbs into your soap! You can take your chosen additives and include it right into your melted soap. We have done this with our Blarney Stone Soap Recipe. Gold mica was added to the clear melt and pour soap base and can be seen incorporated right into the soap bar. So, you can use this technique to create a prettier appearance for your soaps. Additionally, you can add herbs or powders to provide your soap with certain properties. For example, we created the Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe with activated charcoal powder to provide a more cleansing bar of soap that provides a deep pore clean. Regardless of why you want to add herbs, mica, or other powders, the best part is that you have the option to if you need it!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Making Embed SoapMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Making Embed Soap

Additionally, you can add soap embeds to your melt and pour soap bars. This technique gives you the freedom to create even more creative kinds of soap. This would have you create a smaller soap prior to creating your soap bar so that you can add shapes into the soap bar itself.

While it will all be melt and pour soap, you will be able to use the embedded soap to create designs or certain effects. For example, creating the swirl for the Cinnabun Melt and Pour Soap Recipe. We wanted to add a swirl to make the soap bar look more like a cinnamon roll and less plain after we cut our soap loaf. Plus, it just looks so cute! Also, we used this embed soap idea to make the seeds for our Watermelon Soap Recipe. Otherwise, our soap wouldn’t have looked like a slice of watermelon! Sometimes the embed soap really pulls your soap idea together!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Option to Make Clear Soap

Another creative option unique to melt and pour soap is creating a bar that you can see straight into. We all know that we can see embed soaps by cutting a loaf of soap into a few individual bars. However, diamond clear melt and pour soap offers another way to get creative with embed soaps. You can create a bar of soap with solid shapes and colors inside that you will be able to see without cutting.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Mango Loofah Melt and Pour Soap RecipeSimply add a layer of diamond clear soap, place your solid object or colored soap inside, and add your top layer. This leaves you with a solid bar of soap with a fun design inside. We have used this method to create the Mango Loofah Melt and Pour Soap Recipe, where you can see the loofah inside the soap bar. Another idea is to use this soap technique to create kids toys with fun little toys inside. 

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Some Choice with the Ingredients

While you aren’t in complete control of the ingredients that are in your soap base, there are some things that you can do. First of all, you can choose your type of soap base. There are a lot of different melt and pour soap bases to choose from that all have different ingredients. For example, you can choose the SLS FREE Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap if you are looking for soap base without SLS. We have a lot of different types that may suit your individual soaping needs on Natures Garden’s Melt and Pour Soap page. Some of my favorites are our Shea Butter MP Soap Base and the Honey MP Base. Whether you are looking for a with a little extra of something, soap without a certain ingredient, or a base with a certain appearance, you can find all our soap bases on our site.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Controlling Certain IngredientsMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Controlling the Ingredients

Not only can you choose different types of soap base to control the ingredients, but you are in control of scenting and coloring. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, then you can create melt and pour soaps that agree with your skin. First, those with sensitivities to fragrances and essential oils can leave the bar unscented. Also, those that would rather not use liquid soap dye can use natural herbs to color the soap or leave the soap it’s natural color. Thus, you do have some control over the content of your soap bars.

Furthermore, you can add a little bit more of your favorite oils of butters to the soap base you choose. If you find a soap base that has all the ingredients you like, but you wish that it included another ingredient, you have the freedom to add something else. However, you need to be careful not to add too much as this can change the bar and could lose its lather. So, we would not recommend introducing more than a tablespoon of your added oils or butters per pound of mp soap. But, you can play with your recipe to find the right proportion for your soap bars.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Convenience of this Method

Another great reason to work with melt and pour soap is that it is super easy to create soaps! This soap making method is very simple in every way from prepping to create the soap to the clean up process. So, let’s go over all the ways that melt and pour soap making saves you time and effort.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Can Use the Soap Immediately

Also, you can use your soaps immediately after you make them. Obviously, the melt and pour soap base has been previously created and gone through saponification before you buy the melt and pour soap base. While you don’t have to worry about the lye, the soap already has it in the soap. But, the lye that was used to make the soap has already had time to fully react before the soap bases were sold. This means that the curing process has already completely finished before you even open the soap package. So, no need to wait after you form your masterpieces! As soon as your soaps are colored, scented, and out of their molds it can go straight into the bath tub! This is wonderful because you don’t have to worry about waiting long enough to prevent irritation and you can use the soap right away with no waiting.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Quick, Easy, and Fun

Furthermore, this soap making method is perfect for those that are in a hurry to have their soaps done. If you need to get your soaps ready quick for a gathering, a gift, or just excited to use it yourself, then this is a good soaping choice. Everything about this soaping method is quicker. In the beginning, there are fewer preparations and after you finish there is no curing time before using the soap. So, you will have your finished soaps ready as soon as everything has set up and popped out of the molds.

Also, melt and pour soap making is perfect for those that are in the mood to skip right to the creative part of soap making. Since melt and pour soap already has the first few steps of the soaping process complete, you don’t need to worry about these. So, you will have more time and energy to focus on creating super cute soap! You are left with the coloring, scenting, and shaping of your soaps. Simply melt the soap, fill your molds, and get creative.  This soap method is an easy way to get right to the fun part of soap making!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits No Need to Deal with LyeMelt and Pour Soap Benefits No Need to Deal with Lye

While lye is safe with the necessary safety precautions, sometimes it is just easier to let somebody else do all the leg work. In this case, our melt and pour soap base lets you buy your slabs of soap after they have cured. Thus, there is a lot less to prepare when working with melt and pour soap. For example, you won’t need to take as many safety precautions or wear as much protective clothing during the creation of your soap. Also, you won’t have to deal with making the lye water solution or combining the oils at the right temperature. So, no need to have vinegar handy because lye burns won’t ever happen with this soaping method. Thus, melt and pour soap making is just that much easier to work with!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Clean Up Is Easy

Further, the clean up for this method is very easy. Since this the melt and pour soap base is already completed soap, all you really need to do is wash your utensils with water. No need to worry about unreacted lye and no intense scrubbing or vinegar required. Just like soap, your left over base will rinse right out of your bowl.

Three kissing lips soaps will be produced for each color that is created. These steps will walk you through the hues that we chose to create. If you wish to get creative, then feel free to mix and match your lip colors to customize your own set of kisses!

Valentines Day Kisses Melt And Pour Recipe Creating Mica Pigments 

Initially, we are going to prepare the soap pigments that we will need later on. Rather than using any of our soap dyes, we are going to use mica to color our melt and pour soap. Not only will this allow us to achieve gold and silver pigments, but the soap will sparkle as well! So, let’s prepare our diamond dust and 24K gold mica pigments and then get to soaping.

Next, we are going to use the 24K gold mica to create a color for our melt and pour soap. So, weigh out approximately 4 grams of vegetable glycerin and 2 grams of 24K gold mica into one of the smaller bowls. Now, mix these ingredients thoroughly to integrate all of the mica powder and spread out any clumped mica. Once you have a nice liquid gold paste prepared, set the bowl aside.

Now, we are going to use the diamond dust mica to create a different pigment for our melt and pour soap. First, weigh 5 grams of vegetable glycerin into another small bowl.

Vanilla Spectacular Fragrance OilVanilla SPECTACULAR Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We’re willing to bet that you could guess the one word we would use to describe this fragrance oil.  Vanilla SPECTACULAR Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is… SPECTACULAR!  This Nature’s Garden Original Fragrance stands out among vanilla scents as impressively rich and creamy.  A perfect 5-star rating given by our customers lets us know that you love it as much as we do!

What Does Vanilla SPECTACULAR Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Vanilla SPECTACULAR Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is an indulgent blend of sensuous vanilla creme, mixing with buttery, rich caramel notes.  Warm sparkling brown sugar finishes off this fragrance with comfort and appeal.

How Do Our Customers Use Vanilla SPECTACULAR Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Create a line of bath and body products that is simply stunning with this fragrance!  Gels, bath bombs, and bath oils were found to do well when the maximum recommendation of 5% fragrance oil is added.  This spectacular fragrance oil is a spectacle to behold as it livens up all of your scented products.  Handmade perfumes perform well with this vanilla fragrance when a maximum of 5% fragrance oil is used.  Homemade lotions can also be created using this scent as up to 5% of your total recipe.  Homemade cleaning recipes can also be created using a maximum of 5%.

Soap makers can use 5% fragrance oil in hot process soap, melt and pour soap, or cold process soap recipes.  Our cold process soap testing results show that soaps made with this scent discolor to a dark chocolate color!  Also, there was no ricing, no separation, and no acceleration.  Cured soap had a strong scent retention.  We find that the discoloration of soaps with this scent accurately represents the fragrance, and therefore we do not recommend a colorant.  A contributing factor to the discoloration of soaps made with this fragrance is the 16% Vanillin content of this fragrance oil.  Vanillin contributes heavily to the discoloration of soap, but incorporating Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help reduce the effects of this discoloration.
