Common Hot Process Soap QuestionsCommon Hot Process Soap Questions

Although hot process soap recipes have some things in common with the cold process soap recipes, there are a few new steps that can be confusing. So, we at Natures Garden felt it would be useful to answer some common hot process soap questions that our customers have asked us. This way we can equip you with all the soap making supplies and information that you need to make all kinds of wonderful homemade soaps!

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: What are the Hot Process Stages?

First, melt your oils and butters in a crock pot. Then, create your lye solution and add it to your crock pot. Use a stick blend to mix to trace and cover the crock pot. After about 15 minutes, stir the batter and replace the lip. Continue to stir every 15 minutes until the soap batter has the consistency of mashed potatoes. Then, place the soap in a mold and allow it to set up for 24 hours. After, remove from mold, cut, and allow it to cure for about 1-2 weeks. Although the bar may technically be safe to use, allowing it to cure will provide a harder, better quality bar of soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Can I Use the Pan or Crockpot I Used for Soapmaking for Food?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Can I Use the Pan or Crockpot I Used for Soapmaking for Food?

No, you should never return your soaping equipment to the kitchen. So, make sure that you use a pan or crock pot that you aren’t overly fond of for your hot process soap recipes. Hopefully, you can find a pan or crock pot that is cheap or old to use for soap. Once anything in your kitchen is used for soapmaking, it should be moved into your soap making supplies permanently.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Do I Have to Use a Crock Pot for Hot Process Soap?

No, you don’t have to use a crock pot to be successful in making hot process soap. Many people like to use an old crock pot, but if you aren’t able to dedicate one to soap making it is okay to use something different. In fact, you can use a stove top and it works just as well. Honestly, your hot process soap will work just fine as long as your soap has a constant heat source.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: What Are The Hot Process Soap Benefits?

Since hot process soap has some similar steps to cold process soap, hp soap has many of the same benefits. Of course, for both methods, you can control all of the ingredients to avoid ingredient that may trigger allergies or irritate skin conditions. But, the biggest thing that sets the hp soap making method apart from the cold process soap is the cure time. Since hot process soap uses a heat source, like a crock pot or pan, that keeps the soap batter at higher temperatures. These higher temperatures will speed up the saponification process. So, your hot process soaps won’t need to cure as long as they would if they were made using the cp soap method.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Hot Process Soap Recipes?

Natures Garden offers a few different recipes for hot process soap that you can choose between. We have regular hp soap recipes, laundry soap recipes, and even a beard soap recipe. So, there are a lot of fun ideas for making hot process soaps! You can find all of our recipes under Hot Process Soap Recipes on the Free Recipes and Classes page.

 

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: When Do I Color Hot Process Soap?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: When Do I Color Hot Process Soap?

You will want to add your soap colorant after the batch is done cooking. So, mix in the coloring once the soap is a mashed potato consistency. Also, you can still do multiple colors with this method. Just split your cooked soap into different bowls and mix in color to each. Once the soap is colored, you can add more ingredients or scoop the soap to the mold.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: When Do I Add Fragrance to Hot Process Soap?

Again, you will want to add your fragrance oil after the soap has fully cooked and before you stick the soap in the mold. So, you can add your scent right after you add your colorant.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: How Long Do I Need to Cook Hot Process Soap?

The cooking time can vary depending on both the individual hot process soap recipe and the soaping ingredients used. Also, the crock pot or pan that you are using can affect the time, too. Some cases take about an hour and other instances may take a few hours. However, you can tell that your soap is done based on consistency. As your soap heats it will begin to get thicker, which you will notice as you are periodically checking the batter. At one point the soap batter will go through a gel phase, which gives a gel-like appearance. Right after this, the soap will get a mashed potato consistency. At this point, you are ready to scoop the soap into your soap mold.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why is My Hot Process Soap Changing Color?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why is My Hot Process Soap Changing Color?

There are a few reasons why a soap would discolor. Most often, this kind of change is due to the vanillin content in a fragrance oil. This ingredient is what gives scented oils its vanilla notes. So, this type of discoloration can be minimized by using vanilla white color stabilizer. basically, all of the brown discoloration caused by vanillin and oxidation. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer will slow the oxidation of vanillin. However, there are many other ingredients in fragrance oils that can cause discoloration that we can’t reduce or control. This means that it is possible that this additive won’t solve discoloration if the vanillin content isn’t very high. You can find out whether a fragrance discolors and if its maintainable by looking in the description for that scented oil. Another reason that your soaps could change color is herbs, which can oxide over time. This will fade the initial color of the herb and likely become a dull color or change color.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap Separating In My Mold?

If your hp soap is separating in the soap mold, then it is a sign that the soap needed to cook longer. No need to rebatch. All you have to do is scoop the soap back into the crock pot or the pan and cook for a bit longer. It could also be caused by a recipe that wasn’t formulated properly or was not weighed out properly.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: How Long Do You Have to Wait to Use Hot Process Soap?

While hot process soap shortens the cure time, you still have a bit of waiting left to do. You will want to let your soap bars set for about 1-2 weeks, depending on your batch this could vary.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap Cracking?

Overheating can cause your hot process soap to crack in some places or develop strange patterns. Occasionally, it will just be a simple crack in the soap and other times you can end up with soap with peaks and craters. Sometimes soap can even get an appearance referred to as alien brains, which is kind of looks like a brain pattern.  Also, certain ingredients can lead to an increase in heating, like additives with natural sugars. So, you are more likely to overheat with milk, wine, honey, or fruit and veggie purees. Not only can these ingredients heat you soap, but they have the potential to cause a volcano effect in your soap. So, be sure to use caution for those ingredients with sugars.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why is My Hot Process Soap Hard and Crumbly?

If you have soap that is too hard and crumbly, then stick around to learn about why your hot process soap would be this way and how you can fix it. Also, anyone that wants to learn how to make their hot process soap more fluid may want to start here. First, your soap batter could be over cooked, which makes the soap dry and hard. Alternatively, the recipe could contain too many hard oils, which could be saved by re-batching with more soft oils. Or, it could be that you didn’t add enough water. Also, it could be that an ingredient was forgotten or the recipe wasn’t formulated correctly. Another possibility is that there is too much of a soap additive, like sodium lactate, that increased the hardness too much. Often, you can simply fix the mistake and rebatch your soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: How Do I Rebatch Hot Process Soap?

Have you ever wondered can you melt a bar of soap and remold? It can be tempting to just scrap a failed batch of soap and start over. If you feel the same, then you will definitely want to hear about rebatching soap. Whether you forgot an ingredient, a hot process soap rebatch is a great idea for you to try. Plus, rebatching your old soap is a fairly simple process. First, grate your old soap and put these pieces in a crock pot. Then, you will need to melt this down with water and whatever you wanted to include in these soaps. If you want a more detailed set of instructions, then you can look at a previous blog on How to Rebatch soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap Soft and Crumbly?

Also, there are a few reasons why your soap could turn out soft and crumbly. One reason could be that you have too many soft oils and need more hard oils added to the recipe. Also, it could be an issue of not having enough lye for the amount of liquid added. So, it is possible that you may need to formulate the recipe again, which can be made easier with the help of SoapCalc. If your recipe is fine, then you may just need to cook your soap a bit longer. Another option is that you could’ve accidentally added a soap ingredient twice. While you may have a missing ingredient or need to add some different ingredients, it is okay because you should be able to rebatch and save the soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap So Soft? I Did Everything Right and It Is Still Soft.

When you first unmold and cut your hp soap, it may be softer than you like. It is common to be a little soft initially for hot process soaps. However, the soap will harden as it cures. Although the soap is safe to use, the bars after about a week, they may still be too soft. For hard soaps, we suggest allowing your soap to cure for 3-4 weeks.

Soap Making Terms

If you want to learn about different soaping methods and get help for potential problems, then it helps to know common soap making terms. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, you are likely to come across something new with your batches at least once. So, we are here to help you understand what to do and how to solve any soap-making issues.

Soap Making Terms: How Much Fragrance Oil Can I Add to Soap?

While you should always check the usage rate for each individual fragrance, the maximum that we recommend is 5%. Sometimes you can a scent where the IFRA sheet allows more and you can do more if you’d like. After you know the usage rate, you just need to do some simple multiplication to figure out how much scent you need.

Formula: Weight of Soap x Usage Rate = Weight of Fragrance Oil
Example: 912 grams of soap x 0.05 (which is a 5% usage rate) = 45.6 grams of fragrance

Soap Making Terms: Why Did My Soap Turn Brown?

Often fragrance oils that contains a high amount of Vaniilin will turn soap brown. Also, the color will be a darker brown with scented oils with higher amounts of Vanillin. We can use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to reduce these effects and still use the scent. Since this ingredient is added to provide a vanilla scent, strong vanilla fragrance oils will almost always turn soap brown without the color stabilizer.

Soap Making Terms: Can I Use Essential Oils in Soap Making?

Yes, essential oils can be used to scent soap. We find that essential oils hold up better in MP soap than in soap made from scratch. This is because the saponification process can cook off the essential oil, which doesn’t have middle notes to anchor the scent. You may have some scent after the soaps cure, but it won’t be as strong as it is in MP soap.

Soap Making Terms: How Much Essential Oil Can I Use in Soap?

This can be different for each essential oil, so you will need to check the IFRA sheet for the usage rate. Then, you can figure out how much you need using the same method as you would for fragrance oils.

Soap Making Terms: How Do You Make Soap White?

You can add titanium dioxide to soaps to make them white. In fact, many of our white soap bases use this ingredient. If you wanted, you could use this ingredient to turn your clear soaps to white.

Soap Making Terms: What is Melt and Pour Soap Making?Soap Making Terms: What is Melt and Pour Soap Making?

Another option for soap making is melt and pour soap. This method starts with a soap base that has already gone through the saponification process. So, you cut need to cut and melt the amount your need before you are ready to add colorants, fragrance, or herbs. Then, you can pour the melted soap into a mold and spray the top with rubbing alcohol. As soon as the soap is hardened, it is ready to use!

Soap Making Terms: How Much Melt and Pour Soap Will I Need for My Mold?

For each ounce by volume in your mold you will need 31 grams of soap. Say the soap mold will hold 16 ounces, you will need 496 grams of soap

Formula: Constant Value for Soap Needed to Fill Mold x Volume of Mold = Weight of Soap
Example:
31 grams per ounce x 16 ounce mold = 196 grams of MP soap

Soap Making Terms: How Long Should Melt and Pour Soap Stay in the Mold?

This can vary based on the size of soap you are creating. Smaller soaps will take less time compared to bigger soaps. Just make sure that they are hardened all the way before you remove them. Also, you should be able to feel that the mold is no longer warm to touch.

Soap Making Terms: How Do I Get My Melt and Pour Soap Out of the Mold?

While you should be able to hold your molds upside down and lightly push, sometimes they get stuck. If you place your soaps in the refrigerator for a short amount of time, this should make it easier for you to remove your mp soap.

Soap Making Terms: How Do I Get Fingerprints Off My Melt and Pour Soap?

Sometimes when you are removing your soaps from the mold, you can transfer a fingerprint. Just use some rubbing alcohol to dampen a cotton swab and  gently swab the fingerprint. It should begin to fade as you do this.

Soap Making Terms: Can Melt and Pour Soap Be Used Right Away?

Of course! The saponification process is already complete before you get your soap base. So, there is no active lye to worry about. This means that you can use your soaps as soon as they harden.

Soap Making Terms: Why Is My Melt and Pour Soap Sweating?

There are a few reasons why your soap would sweat. First, it could be due to adding too much oil. Whether it is fragrance oil or carrier oil, the soap can only hold on to so much before the oil begins to leak out to create beads on the surface. More often, it is due to the soap drawing moisture from the air. Since your soap base uses vegetable glycerin, a humectant, it will draw moisture to it. Although this is great for you skin, it can lead to your soap sweating . However, you can prevent the latter by wrapping your soap as soon as it comes out of the mold. This way it can’t pull moisture from the air.

 

Soap Making Terms: What is Hot Process Soap Making?Soap Making Terms: What is Hot Process Soap Making?

Another way to make soap from scratch is hot process soap. This process is very similar to cold process soapmaking. However, in this method you will have a heat source to speed up the saponification process. You can use a crock pot or stove top to heat your soap mixture. After, you can technically use the bars immediately. However, letting them cure a week will provide you with harder, milder bars.

Soap Making Terms: Does Natures Garden Offer Any Hot Process Soap Recipes with Shea Butter?

Yes, we have a few! For example, we have our Manly Soap Recipe, the Beard Soap Recipe, and more that you can find under the Hot Process Soap Recipes page!

Soap Making Terms: How Long Do You Have to Wait to Use Hot Process Soap?

Yes. Although you don’t have to wait as long for your soaps to cure, there is still some lye left that needs to react. Typically, you will need to wait 1-2 week(s) before using your hp soap.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Rebatch Mean?

If you want to redo a soap batch or add more ingredients, then this is a great idea for you! It is common to rebatch to correct issues like seizing or forgotten ingredients. Also, this can be done to add ingredients that wouldn’t react well during the saponification process, like natural exfoliates or essential oils. First, take the soaps that you aren’t necessarily pleased with and grate them into pieces. Place these pieces in a crock pot and melt them with milk, water, or another liquid to prevent scotching. Also, add any additional oils that you want in these soaps. Allow you batch to reheat for one hour at which point it will by thick. After, add the color, scent, and herbs before scooping this soap into a mold.

Soap Making Terms: What is Cold Process Soap Making?Soap Making Terms: What is Cold Process Soap Making?

This process is one of a few that are refereed to as making soap from scratch because in uses water, lye, and oils to create bars of soap. Another key characteristic of this method is that you don’t need outside heat, as the lye provide enough heat for saponification. Once trace occurs, you are able to add colorants, scented oils, and herbs can be added at this point. After 24 hours, you can remove the soap from the mold and cut. However, you must let your soap cure for a period of 4-6 weeks.

Soap Making Terms: What is Lye in Soap Making?

Lye is a caustic base that is a key component for soap, as it drives the saponification process. It is sometimes referred to as sodium hydroxide for bar soaps and potassium hydroxide for liquid soaps.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Saponification Mean?

This is the process of lye reacting with the oils/fats/butters to produce soap. Saponification will produce both the soap and the glycerin in the soap.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Cure Time Mean?

Cure time is the period where the soap finishes the soaponification process until there is no more active lye present in the bars.

Soap Making Terms: What Does the Term Trace Mean in Soap Making?

In soaping, trace is when the lye water and the oils/butters have been fully combined. You will know that you’ve hit trace because the batter will thicken to a pudding-like consistency. Also, you can check to see whether you are at trace by using a spatula to “trace” a line of soap in the batter. You will notice that the line will not immediately disappear and you can see a trace of the soap you drizzled in.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Light Trace Mean in Soap Making?

Light trace is the point right before your soap comes to trace. You will begin to see a trace, but it won’t stay for more than a few seconds. So, the batter is about to hit trace where it will be thick enough to see the soap for a bit longer.

Soap Making Terms: How Long Does It Take for Soap Batter to Get to Trace?

The time is takes to get to trace will vary between batches for a number of reasons. The ingredients in a recipe can lead to different times. Also, fragrance oils and some soap additives can accelerate or slow trace in your batch.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Seize Mean in Soap Making?

If your soap seizes, then it means that your soap has gone through saponification enough that the batter is beginning to turn from liquid to solid. While this isn’t bad on its own, it makes it impossible to pour soap that is still in the bowl. This hardening soap that hasn’t yet made it to the mold will be too thick to mix and, at best, will be chunky in the mold.

Soap Making Terms: Why Do I Have Lye Pockets in My Cold Process Soap?

If you use too much lye in your soap recipe, then you can
Lye pockets can form in cold process soap most often when too much lye is used. However, it could also be a recipe that wasn’t properly formulated, an oil was left out, the soap seized, or even when the lye solution was not fully mixed. If the lye was not completely saponified you can always rebatch the soap and hot process the soap adding additional oil. Also, it is possible that it could be used in recipes such as laundry soaps that can utilize soap with a higher pH level.

Soap Making Terms: Can I Change the Soap Making Recipes?

Unlike many other bath and body recipes, you can’t simply swap out oils in the Natures Garden formulated recipe. Each oil has a certain saponification value that determines how much lye it will react with. So, switching an oil could result in your batch being lye heavy. Even if you wait longer to cure, there won’t be enough oils to react with the lye and the bars will irritate the skin or even cause burning. Instead, use SoapCalc to determine what you would have to change to get the recipe that you want!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can I Make Soap Without Using Lye?

Since the mp soap base has already been made, you can create melt and pour soap without worrying about the lye. If you are wondering “What is the difference between melt and pour soap and cold process soap?”, then this is a big difference. While melt and pour is pre-made and can be remelted, cold process soap is made from scratch using lye.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can Melt and Pour Soap Be Used Right Away?

Since mp soap was already made and the saponification process has already taken place, you don’t have to wait to use your soap. As soon as the melt and pour soaps have hardened in the molds, you can pop them out and use them!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Where Do I Find the Melt and Pour Soap IngredientsCommon Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Where Do I Find the Melt and Pour Soap Ingredients?

You can find the soap base ingredients in two places. The first place is online, as each mp soap base has the ingredients listed in the description. Also, these ingredients can be found on the label of the base itself.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What Soap Making Supplies Do I Need to Make Melt and Pour Soap?

Most importantly, you will need a microwave or double boiler and mp soap. Also, you will need a cutting board, knife, a microwave safe dish, spoon, rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, and a soap mold. If you want fragrance, color, or herbs you will need to have these out, too .

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Melt Soap Into a New Bar?

Melt and Pour soap can be melted using a double boiler on a stove top or a bowl in the microwave. Just make sure that you use 30 second intervals to warm the soap int the microwave. Otherwise, it may get too hot and your soap will be ruined. Also, make sure that you are watchful when melting soap on the stove. While a double boiler on medium heat will help to protect your soap, you don’t want to heat it too much longer after it is liquid.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Much Soap Will I Need for My Mold?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Much Soap Will I Need for My Mold?

For every ounce by volume that your mold is you will need 31 grams of soap by weight. So, let’s go to the Soap Mold page and pick one. I choose Ollie Octopus,which says it holds 4.5 ounces in the description. So, we are going to take  4.5 times the 31 to give us 139.5 grams

Formula: (Weight Needed Per Ounce) x (Ounces Mold Holds) = Total Weight

Equation: 31 grams per ounce  x  4.5 ounces = 139.5 grams of soap

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Get My Melt and Pour Soap Out of the Mold?

Sometimes your soap may get stuck in the mold. You can place the mold in the fridge for a short amount of time. Once the chilled soap mold is removed, the soaps should pop out fairly easily.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What Temperature Should I Pour Melt and Pour Soap?

Melt and Pour soap should be poured in a liquid state, which should be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. So, you can pour your soap once it has all completely melted.

 

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Do I Have Bubbles in My Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Do I Have Bubbles in My Melt and Pour Soap?

Although making air bubbles is unavoidable, you can get rid of them by spraying lightly with rubbing alcohol. These are often air bubbles that form when you pour, so you can release them by spraying right after you pour. However, bubbles that are a light-yellow color are fragrance oil and won’t go away by spraying. This is either due to adding too much fragrance oil or not mixing thoroughly.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Homemade Soap So Oily?

One reason that you soaps would be oily is that they contain too much oil. So, you can try reducing the amount of the fragrance oil and/or the carrier oil that you are adding to your soaps. If your bars look like they are sweating, then it could be due to not wrapping the soap soon enough. Since your soap contains an ingredient, vegetable glycerin, that pulls moisture to it, it will pull moisture out of the air to create “sweat”. But, you can lessen your chances of this by wrapping your soaps right after they are out of the mold.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Melt and Pour Soap Dissolving So Fast?

While a softer bar of soap is great for nourishing the skin, it is more likely to dissolve quickly in water. So, you can add some extra oil to your soap to moisturize. However, adding too much will make your bar very soft and it will dissolve quickly in the shower.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Swirl Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Swirl Melt and Pour Soap?

While it is possible to swirl mp soap, it is a bit trickier to swirl compared to cp soaps. On its own melt and pour soap won’t swirl. Instead, the colors will mix before the soap hardens. So, you need to add a cosmetic powder, like clay, fruit, or veggie powders. This will slightly thicken the soap and create tension between the two colors that are gong to create the swirl. We did this in our own Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Melt and Pour Soap Lather?

There are a few possible answers to this question. First off, soap can loose its lather due to an excess of oils and herbs being added to the bar. Also, some types of our soap base use ingredients that naturally lather better.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Soap Not Hardening?

If your melt and pour soap isn’t hardening, then it could be due to adding too much oil. Whether the culprit is fragrance oil, carrier oil, or both, it is most likely that this excess oil is to blame. Another possibility is that the soap was overheated, which resulted in a break down in the soaps that prevents it from working properly.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can You Use Essential Oils in Melt and Pour Soap?

Of course! Many essential oils can be used in soap making and the rules for using them safely are just like the ones for fragrance oils. So, you need to check the IFRA sheet to determine usage rates and figure out whether the specific essential oil is body safe. You can find this IFRA statement on the page of each individual essential oil that we carry. Many are body safe scents, but some are not considered safe for prolonged skin contact.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Color Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Color Melt and Pour Soap?

We have soap dye, soap colorants, and powdered herbs that can be used to color your homemade soaps. The soap dyes are great for solid color soaps, but tend to bleed when used in layered soap. Also, the white soap base will provide a more pastel color and the clear soap will give a more true color. The FUN Soap Colorants are vibrant colors that are more true in all soap bases. Lastly, the natural form of coloring soaps is cosmetic herbs, which are perfect for a rustic or natural look. Just be aware that herbs can oxidize over time and cause discoloration of the soap.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Do You Offer Melt and Pour Soap Recipes?

Of course! We have a wide variety of melt and pour soap recipes and soap making ideas. On the top of the website you will see a box with the words “Free Recipes & Classes”. After you click on this fine the melt and pour soap recipes and you will find all of our recipes using mp soap.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Soap Frosting Setup on My Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Soap Frosting Setup on My Melt and Pour Soap?

If you are making cupcake soap wholesale, then the frosting is a pretty big deal. You are going to want to use the whipped soap base, melt and pour soap, and vegetable glycerin. The soap base allows the frosting to harden on the cupcake, while the vegetable glycerin allows for a little flexibility.  If you are curious and thinking, “How do I make melt and pour soap frosting?”, then check out our Soap Frosting Recipe to see how we make the frosting for our soap cupcakes. While the recipe goes into more detail, basically it is equal parts of mp soap base and whipped soap base with 5% of vegetable glycerin and fragrance oil all whipped into a frosting consistency.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: I Would Like to Know If Most Recipes are Showing Oils Measured in Weight Ounces Or in Fluid Ounces?

In our soap recipes we will use weight ounces. We do this because weight ounces are more accurate than fluid ounces. So, we highly recommend weighing your ingredients using a gram scale. This will allow you to be precise in your measurements and prevent accidental mix ups.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What is the Best Way to Wrap Melt and Pour Soap?

There are a few different ways that you can package your finished soaps. We prefer to use shrink wrap, but you can use ziplock bags, or a decorative box.

We at Natures Garden have the perfect fragrance oils for Independence Day! Of course, we have some truly patriotic scents that are all in celebration of this fine country. Not only do we have traditional American scents, but we have scented oils that were formulated to match the political parties. So, we thought about some of the important overall traits for the Democrats, the Republicans, and the Independents. Then, we ask our perfumist to translate these characteristics into real scents. So, we believe that these political scents are perfect for celebrating how far our country has come and looking forward to will happen next.

It’s important to remember where you came from and how you got there. On December 16, 1773, colonists began throwing shipments of tea into the Boston Harbor to protest the British Government for taxation without representation. This led to the American Revolution and ultimately our independence from Great Britain. So, we decided to create the Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil to remind us of the important history that led to Independence Day. This wonderful scent starts with freshly brewed tea leaves and juicy lemon. Then, the scent has middle notes of rose hips, chai spice, and jasmine. Finally, the scent finishes with notes of refreshing musk.

My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: Cocktails by the Pool Fragrance OilMy Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: Cocktails by the Pool Fragrance Oil

Also, I like to use the Cocktails by the Pool Fragrance Oil in many of my lotion recipes. This fresh, fruity scent is another fragrance that is perfect for summer! The aroma was inspired by the scent of Bath and Body Works’ gorgeous Sunset by the Pool aroma. This fragrance at NG has notes of sparkling fruits, gorgeous and soft florals, sandalwood, and vanilla. This scent is such a perfect blend for a tropical summer fragrance oil that I just had to include it in my lotion bar supplies for this year!

My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: Daisy Type Fragrance Oil My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: Daisy Type Fragrance Oil

Another great scented oil for lotion making is the Daisy Type Fragrance Oil. This delightful floral aroma was created to match the scent of Marc Jacob’s Daisy perfume. Our rendition of this fragrance starts with tangy lemon and jasmine notes that are followed by middle notes of muguet lily, rose petals, African violet, and daylily. These layers are both sitting on a base of cedarwood, patchouli, and musk. This blend of gorgeous aromas creates a fragrance that is light and beautiful. This is perfect for creating a light scented lotion that leaves you smelling delightfully feminine.

My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: NG Viva La Juicee Fragrance OilMy Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: NG Viva La Juicee Fragrance Oil

Next, we have the vibrant and fruity scent of NG Viva La Juicee Fragrance Oil. This fragrance oil was inspired by the aroma of Juicy Couture’s Viva la Juicy fragrance. The scented oil has a tantalizing blend of juicy wild berry and mandarin that are wrapped in the floral notes of summer gardenia, pink jasmine and bright honeysuckle, which is enhanced by vanilla praline, soft woods and amber base notes. This fragrance oil is a bright, fruity scent that is perfect for fun lotion recipes that will care for your skin and make you smell fantastic!

My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance OilMy Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil

Also, Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil is another fantastic scent for creating lotion recipes. In fact, the first time I used this scent was in the Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Recipe and it was such a delightful scent! This aroma was based on the scent of Bath and Body Work’s Black Raspberry Vanilla and NG made such a wonderful dupe. The blend of blackberries, raspberries, white floral, musk and vanilla creates a scent that is simply irresistible. This is one of my go to scents for daily lotion recipes and I just love it all year round.

My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: NG Early Sunrise Type Fragrance OilMy Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: NG Early Sunrise Type Fragrance Oil

Plus, you can use the bright citrus scent of the NG Early Sunrise Type Fragrance Oil. This delightful scent was based on Yankee’s Early Sunrise candle scent. This aroma has fresh notes of  lemon, grapefruit, clementine, green floral notes, and amber woods that blend together to create a very uplifting aroma. This fragrance oil is perfect for creating a bright citrus hand cream for on the go. I like to throw a container of sunrise scented cream in my purse. This is perfect for when my hands get a little dry or I could use a scent pick-me-up throughout the day.

My Favorite Fragrance Oils for Lotion: How to Make Perfume Last

While you may think that wearing both lotion and perfume would just be too much, they can actually be used to compliment one another. I had assumed that using both would make the scent too strong, but I was so wrong in thinking that. In fact, combining perfume and lotion will make your scent last even longer than either would last alone! If you are curious on how to do this, then check out an amazing article by Style Caster called How to Layer Lotion and Perfume Without Overdoing It. Here you will learn a few tricks about smelling great and making your scent last longer!

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Sanitize and Prepare

Before you begin creating your soap, you will want to make sure that your equipment and work space are ready. So, clean off and sanitize a table or counter top that you can work on. Also, make sure that your equipment, including your microwave, is clean and ready to use. Another important preparation of Melt and Pour Soap is getting the spray bottle of rubbing alcohol ready to use. Finally, we would suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust Layer

First, we are going to create the Graham Cracker Crust Layer for our melt and pour soap. This will be the first layer that we will pour and it will be the bottom layer of our pistachio pudding soap. Also, you will want to get your soap mold ready before we begin melting this first layer. This way your soap won’t set up before you can get the mold ready.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Crust Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
6 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting the Ingredients

Now, you are going to need to weigh the 95 grams of cocoa butter melt and pour soap base. Once you have your soap ready, you are going to use the microwave to melt you soap using 30 second intervals. You will need to check and stir to ensure that your soap doesn’t boil. Once your soap is in a liquid state you are ready to move on to the next step.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

After your soap has melted you are going to add the scented oil. So, weigh and mix in the 4 grams of Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil. Also, you will need to add 4 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is because the fragrance oil may cause some discoloration in your soaps. So, we will use some color stabilizer to make sure that our soap stays looking bright and scrumptious. Once they are both added you will need to mix until they are fully incorporated.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Finishing the First LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Finishing the First Layer

Next, we are going to add the FUN Soap Colorants to the melted soap. For this layer you are going to need 6 drops of the Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops of the Brown Soap Colorant to create the perfect graham cracker crust color. Once these pigments are fully mixed, then you are ready to pour this layer into the square soap mold. Also, remember to spray with rubbing alcohol after this layer has been poured. Once the crust layer has completely set up you are ready to work on creating the next layer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: White Cream Cheese Layer

The Cream Cheese Layer is going to be the second portion you will need to create and pour. While this layer won’t have any color added, the rest of this layer will the same as the bottom crust layer. So, this next layer will be the same size and scent as the previous layer we created.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: White Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting Your Soap

Next, you are going to heat the 93 grams of melt and pour soap. Again, you will want to use the microwave in 30 second intervals. Remember to mix your melting soap, which will help prevent boiling. After your soap base is melted, you are ready to add the scent and color stabilizer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting Your SoapPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting Your Soap

Now that your soap is melted you are ready to add the fragrance oil! So, take 4 grams of the Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil and stir it into your melted soap. Also, you will need to include 4 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to ensure that this layer stays uncolored. Otherwise, you could have some discoloration due to the Vanillin in this fragrance. Since this layer is meant to be a cream cheese color, it won’t look right if the fragrance discolors the soap.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Pouring the Soap

Then, you are going to pour the second layer into your square soap mold. Since you waited to mix this layer until the first layer has set up, you should be ready to pour this layer. First, lightly spray your crust layer with rubbing alcohol. This will help your layers stick to one another. Now you can pour this into the mold and lightly spray the top of this layer with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. Before moving on to the next step, allow this layer time to set up completely.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Pistachio LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Pistachio Layer

Next, we are going to be creating the pistachio layer. This vivid green layer will be the same size as the other two layers, but it will be a different color and use a different kind of melt and pour soap base. But, this portion will be created using a similar process as before.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
2 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting the Soap

Similarly, you are going to need to melt 93 grams of melt and pour soap. However, this layer will use Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap instead of the white soap base we have used before. This will provide a brighter appearance for the pistachio layer. Also, you will still need to melt this soap using 30 second intervals in the microwave and stirring between heating periods.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, we are going to be scenting the third layer of the dessert soap recipe. So, add 4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil to your freshly melted soap. Also, we will need to include 4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer because this fragrance oil has a slight discoloration. If we didn’t use a color stabilizer, then the soap may appear more dull or even slightly brown. While this wouldn’t hurt the cleanliness of the bar, it could make it look less like pistachio pudding.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Coloring and Pouring the Soap

Now you are going to be coloring your liquid soap. So, put two drops of the Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant into the soap. You will want to mix well to blend in the ingredients from the previous step. Once it looks like everything is evenly dispersed, you will need to pour this soap into your soap mold. Just remember to spray with rubbing alcohol before and after you pour this layer to make sure your layers stay together and to release air bubbles.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping Layer

Lastly, we are going to be creating and adding the topping to our pistachio pudding soap! This will include both the whipped cream fluffy and the toasted, sliced almonds. The whipped cream topping will be made with a whipped soap base. Also, we will use citrus peel herbs to stand in for the sliced almonds.

 

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping Layer’s Weights and Amounts

46 grams Whipped Soap Base
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
46 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 grams Vegetable Glycerin
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting the Whipped Soap BasePistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting the Whipped Soap Base

First, you are going to need to measure 46 grams of the Whipped Soap Base into a large mixing bowl. Then, you will need to add in both 4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil and 4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Fluffing the Whipped Soap BasePistachio Soap Making Recipe: Fluffing the Whipped Soap Base

After the soap base has been scented, you are going to want to use a hand mixer to fluff your whipped soap base. This will serve to incorporate the scented oil, color stabilizer, and 4 grams Vegetable Glycerin to create a better texture for the top of your dessert soap. Once you mix everything together well, you can move on to the next step.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Melt and Pour SoapPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Melt and Pour Soap

Next, you are going to be adding the melt and pour soap base to your whipped soap. So, measure out 46 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base. Now you are going to need to melt your soap using 30 second intervals. Once your soap is melted, pour it all into your mixing bowl. After everything is in the bowl, use the hand mixer again to whip everything into a frosting consistency.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe:Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Frosting Your Pistachio Pudding

Now that your whipped topping is fluffy, you can add it to the tops of your soaps. We recommend that you work quickly because the soap is going to set up fast. First, quickly spray the tops of your soaps with rubbing alcohol. Then, take a spatula to spread the whipped soap frosting all over the tops of your bars.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Create and Sprinkle the Sliced AlmondsPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Create and Sprinkle the Sliced Almonds

Finally, you are read to sprinkle on the sliced almond topping. For this we are going to be using Orange Peel Cut and Sifted. as they look similar enough to the almonds on the pistachio pudding and look cute on the soaps. Now, your three soap bars are finished and as soon as your soaps set up you are ready to remove from molds and use!
