25. Toxic TranceWhen we asked our perfumist to create some new Halloween/Gothic scents for us, he created a sexy scent that he referred to as “Intoxicating Edward”.  We love the Twilight series, and we were simply amazed at how well the perfumist captured the charming charisma of Edward in this fragrance;  his alluring eyes, his flawless, metrosexual appearance, and even the way he glistened like gold when we was in the sun.  However, we chose to give this fragrance a name that lasted beyond the Twilight phenomena; thus we renamed this fragrance “Toxic Trance”.

28. WerewolfThis fragrance oil by Natures Garden is sexy and animalistic.  Fresh citrus highlights sparkle around the floral heart of lavender and ylang in this sensuous blend. An earthy signature of patchouli and spiced wood leads to a base of warm animal tones. Leather and musk balance with balsamic undertones as hints of powdery vanilla complete the blend.

29. Witches BrewThis fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a secret blend that is mystical…try some.

30. Witching HourThis fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a fun Halloween fragrance composed of spicy, magical notes.  This accord begins with freshly ground cinnamon bark,  and complimented with herbal notes of bergamot, cannabis flower, jasmine, and rose;  and sits on earthy base notes of sheer musk, black tea, and patchouli.

Lavender Soap

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

lavender scent Making Lavender Soap

For us, making cold process soap is almost a daily occurrence.  With all of the fragrance oils that are tested, new samples that are tested, and fun recipes that are made, the creative team at Natures Garden is always busy doing something.

A few days ago, we wanted to make a Lavender Soap Recipe (with cold process).  Through our brainstorming, we created a great recipe, with a cool design concept that even included sprinkling a small amount of lavender flowers to the top of the soap.

Seeing that Lavender Martini Fragrance Oil was not yet used for a recipe, we thought it would be the perfect fit.  The soaping results showed that it was a “Perfect Pour.  No ricing, no acceleration.  Very great unique scent.  No discoloration.  Scent is clean.”  So, soaping with this oil was not going to pose any issues.

To use one word to describe working with this fragrance oil, it would be flawless.  The color design for our recipe contained 4 colors including: a light purple, medium purple, dark purple, and finally white.  Not only did the fragrance allow for ample time to get these colors achieved, but we were also able to accomplish a gorgeous in the pot swirl too.

So now, since we are on the topic of how wonderful this fragrance oil was to work with, it should also be mentioned how fabulously strong and amazing this scent smells.  Once the Lavender Martini scent was in the soap batter, it seemed to fill the work area instantaneously.  The lavender martini aroma was strong!  We were all super excited as to how this soap loaf recipe was going to turn out.  Even just walking past the loaf as it set up was a foreshadow of just how aromatic the scent was.

The next day, we unmolded and braced ourselves for the soap slicing.  As we sliced the soap loaf, it seemed that with each slice the smell of lavender martini was more intense in the air.  This recipe was just an overall win in every category!

So, if you are looking for a great cold process soap scent, and your interest is peaked in giving this fragrance oil a try in cold process soap, we highly suggest you do.  Like we mentioned earlier, we soap a lot of fragrances, but this one was definitely eye opening.

Happy Lavender Soaping!

The rainbow is quite the phenomenon.  It is a reflection and refraction of light in water droplets and becomes a spectrum of light that appears in the sky after a rain fall.  When it arcs in the sky before us, it appears opposite of the sun and we see 7 different colors as a result.  These colors are: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.  What some may not know is there are approximately 8 different kinds of rainbow, but the most impressive is the double rainbow.  This is just a reflection of itself.  When you see a true double rainbow, the second rainbow will begin where the first rainbows color end.  Natures Gardens Rainbow Fragrance Oil is a bright scent, a phenomenon itself.  Loaded with an array of soft scents from fruits, to flowers, to a lovely musk, when you first smell this bold and colorful scent, you will be amazed.  Like the sight of a rainbow this fragrance oil is very delightful and beautifully displayed!

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

Avocado Oil 
COCONUT Oil-76
Shea Butter
Cocoa Butter

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.

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!
