Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap RecipeMoonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe

Our next soap project is a swirled melt and pour soap project.  While cold process soap is often swirled, melt and pour soap can be a little harder to get the same type of swirl.  However, with the addition of clays and powders, it can be done.  Our Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe was inspired uses Natures Garden’s Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil.  We were since the fragrance oil itself contains notes of both jasmine and vanilla, we were inclined to incorporate whole jasmine flowers as well as vanilla powder.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: A Closer Look at Some of the Ingredients

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil

Before we begin, let’s take a look at the fragrance oil that we will be using.  This soapmaking project uses, what else, Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil.  February 2018’s fragrance of the month. Tuberose essential oil is extremely expensive, and is used in the most exquisite fine fragrances.  We have done our very best to create a fragrance oil with the same aroma as this expensive essential oil; while adding complimentary notes to make this fragrance well-balanced.  Natures Garden’s moonlight tuberose fragrance begins with top notes of white pear and green apple;  followed by middle notes of tuberose, jasmine, lily of the valley, and ginger;  sitting on base notes of violet, ylang ylang, peach, vanilla, and fresh woods.  An NG Original fragrance!

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: French Green Powder

Next, let’s look at our first clay in this recipe.  French green clay powder is the most frequently used clay by health professionals and spas to treat skin conditions, to nourish the skin, and to remove impurities.  Green clay is light green in color when dry, but turns dark green when wetting agents are added.  French green clay is very nutritious for the skin. Due to the nutrients in French Green Clay, it is used in many cosmetics, soap, and skincare recipes.  French Green Clay powder can be added to both cold process soap and melt and pour soap recipes for increased cleansing ability and natural exfoliation.  French green clay will produce a natural green color in soap recipes.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Rose Clay Powder

We also used rose clay powder in this soap making recipe.  Rose clay, often referred to as pink clay, is a gentle, natural clay that contains kaolinite.  Rose clay is fabulous for most skin types; including sensitive skin.  Rose clay provides gentle exfoliation, helps to draw toxins from the skin, helps to increase circulation, reduces skin irritation, and helps to reduce inflammation.  Rose clay is typically used as an ingredient in cosmetics, soap, facial masks, and mud baths; providing skin-loving minerals, but also naturally coloring your finished products.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Kaolin White Clay Powder

Our final clay is the kaolin white clay powder.  Kaolin Clay, also called China Clay, is a white clay that is perfect for sensitive skin types.  Kaolin clay is commonly used to make mineral makeup such as foundation, eye shadow, and blush.  Natures Garden’s white clay can be used in formulations as a thickener, and added to bath bombs to harden them.   Like most clays, kaolin clay helps cleanse the skin; removing toxins.

 

 

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare Your ColorantsMoonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Colorants

First, we will prepare our colorants.  We will use two shades of green, a dark red, and a white soap for this recipe.  You will need to have a total of four disposable cups. You will also need to have your clays, vanilla powder, vegetable glycerin, and colorants out.  Once you have mixed all of the powders and colorants together, you can set each one aside, for now.  We will use them in a later step.

Colorant Amounts for the Light Green SoapColorant Amounts for the Light Green Soap:

10 grams Kaolin Clay Powder
20 grams Vegetable Glycerin
2 grams Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant
20 drops Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant

 

So, first, we will prepare the colorant for the light green soap.  In your first disposable cup, weigh out 10 grams of kaolin clay powder.  Then, add 20 grams of vegetable glycerin.  This will create a paste which will disperse better in your melted soap.  Next, add 2 grams of Natures Garden’s neon green FUN Soap Colorant along with 20 drops of the lime green soap dye to the cup containing the clay mixture.  Then, stir to mix the colorant completely with the clay mixture.

Colorant Amounts for the Red Soap PortionColorant Amounts for the Red Soap Portion:

10 grams of Rose Clay Powder
10 grams of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
6 grams Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
22 grams of Vegetable Glycerin

 

Next, we will prepare the colorant for the red portion of soap.  You will need your second disposable cup.  Weigh out 10 grams of your rose clay powder.  Then, add 22 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Again, by creating a paste the colorant will disperse better in your melted soap.  Once your clay mixture is clump free, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s neon pink FUN Soap Colorant.  In addition, add 6 grams of the tomato soap dye to the cup containing the clay mixture.  Then, stir to mix the colorant completely with the clay mixture.

Colorant Amounts for the Dark Green Soap Portion:

12 grams of French Green Clay Powder
21 grams of Vegetable Glycerin
7 grams Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

 

 

Now, we will prepare the colorant for the dark green soap.  In your third disposable cup, weigh out 12 grams of green clay powder.  Then, add 21 grams of vegetable glycerin.  This will create a paste which will disperse better in your melted soap.  Finally, add 7 grams of Natures Garden’s neon green FUN Soap Colorant to the cup containing the clay mixture.  Then, stir to mix the colorant completely with the clay mixture.

Colorant Amounts for the White Soap PortionColorant Amounts for the White Soap Portion:

9 grams of Vanilla Powder
13 grams of Vegetable Glycerin

Lastly, we will prepare the vanilla powder for the white soap.  In your last disposable cup, weigh out 9 grams of vanilla powder.  Then, add 13 grams of vegetable glycerin.  This will create a paste which will disperse better in your melted soap.  Finally, stir to mix the vanilla powder and vegetable glycerin together.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare the Soap

Now, we will begin preparing the soap that will be used in the soap loaf.  This soap will later be divided and added to our cups containing the colorants we created.  You will need your fragrance oil and your yogurt melt and pour soap base.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare the SoapMoonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe Total Recipe Weights

1408 grams Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap
70 grams Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil

First, you will need a total of 1408 grams of Natures Garden’s yogurt mp soap base.  To start, cut the soap into small cubes.  Then, use a microwave to melt the soap.  You want to melt the soap in 30-second intervals until it is melted completely.  Stir between each 30-second burst.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Separate the SoapMoonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap

At this time, you will need to separate the soap.  You will need the four cups containing the colorants that you prepared earlier.  To each of your cups, add 452 grams of the melted soap.  Stir the contents of each of your cups to fully blend the colorant with the melted yogurt soap.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Pouring the Soap Into the MoldMoonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Pouring the Soap Into the Mold

A melt and pour swirling technique makes pouring the soap into the mold a little bit different.  You will need to of the cups of soap and your square loaf mold.  It does not matter which colors you choose.  Now, place one cup in your left hand and the other in your right hand.  Pour the contents of each cup into the mold at the same time.

 

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare the Whipped Soap Frosting

Now, we will prepare the whipped soap frosting.  The whipped soap base will be used to top our soap loaf.  It will have a fluffy consistency.  We will use a hand mixer to fluff the soap base.  So, you will need your hand mixer.  We will also be adding vegetable glycerin along with yogurt melt and pour soap.  By adding melt and pour soap, the soap frosting will setup, making packaging your soap easier. Your frosting will harden instead of remaining soft and sticking to your packaging.

Whipped Soap Total Recipe Weights:

250 grams Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base
250 grams Whipped Soap Base
25 grams Vegetable Glycerin
25 grams Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil
5 grams Vanilla Powder

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Whipping the Soap Base

First, weigh out 250 grams of the Natures Garden’s whipped soap base.  To the same bowl, add 25 grams of Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil and 25 grams of your vegetable glycerin.  Then, use your hand mixer to fluff the whipped base to a fluffy frosting consistency.  Once you have fluffed your soap base, set this bowl aside, we will come back to it.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare the Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap

Next, you will need an empty mixing bowl.  In this bowl, weigh out 250 grams of the yogurt melt and pour soap base.  Then, use a microwave oven to melt the mp soap.  You will want to melt your soap base in 30-second increments until the soap is completely melted an in a liquid state.  You will want to stir the soap base in between each 30- second burst.  Once the soap has melted, remove it from the microwave.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Mixing the Whipped Soap With the Yogurt Soap

Before we begin mixing the whipped soap base with the yogurt soap, I want to mention, you will need to move quickly as your soap frosting will setup very quickly.  So, add the melted yogurt soap base to the bowl containing the whipped soap.  Once again, you will need your hand mixer.  Finally, use your hand mixer to fluff the soap to that same frosting consistency.

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Topping Your Soap Loaf

Finally, we will begin topping our soap loaf.  Add the whipped soap frosting to the top of your loaf.  You will want to top your soap in the same manner you would frost a cake.  Once you have added you soap frosting, we will add a few finishing touches.  Add a couple grams of the jasmine flowers.  Lastly, dust your soap with a tiny bit of the diamond dust mica pigment.  You will not need much of the diamond dust mica pigment, less than a gram will do.  Once your soap has completely setup, use your mitre box and cutter to slice the soap loaf just like you would cut a loaf of bread.

Once your soap is created, show us your finished soap!  We would love to see homemade mp soap!  Post pictures of your Moonlight Tuberose scented swirled soap or other creations on our Facebook page!  In addition, you can find Natures Garden on both our Twitter and Instagram pages @ngscents.
