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!

Raspberry Cold Process Soap RecipeRaspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe

Today, we will show you how to make our Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe.  We swirled the cp soap then, topped it with raspberry melt and pour embeds.  This cold process soap making recipe uses Natures Garden’s Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.  This scent is a breeze to work with in cold process soap.  It gives you so much time to play.  In addition, it smells so strong and wonderful in the cured soap.  If you have not soaped with this scent, I highly recommend it!

Fresh Raspberry Fragrance OilRaspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil

Before we begin, let’s take a closer look at Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  We have searched literally 10 years for a nice, strong, true fresh raspberry scent that did not have oily green top notes.  This is an extraordinarily fresh raspberry fragrance oil by Natures Garden.  This raspberry scent performs perfectly in cp soap.  It showed no acceleration, no separation, no ricing, and no discoloration.  In addition, it was super strong after curing and is one of my personal favorite fragrance oils to soap with.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Total Recipe Amounts for Raspberry Embeds:

150 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
7 grams Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil
2 drops FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet
2 drop FUN Soap Colorant Neon Pink
3 drops FUN Soap Colorant Tomato Red

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Weigh Out Your Clear Soap Base

Weigh Out Your Clear Soap BaseFirst, we will weigh out and melt 150 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Then, you will need to melt it in the microwave in 30 second increments.  You will want to continue to melt the soap only until it is in a liquid state.  You want to be careful not to over heat the base.  As it is melting, stir the base in between each 30-second burst.

I created one round of berries for this recipe, placing 1-3 berries on each bar.  This recipe created 23 berries which I used on my 9 bars of soap.  If you would like to add more berries on top of your soap, you can create more.  Each additional berry will require about 5 grams of soap.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Color Your MP Soap

Color Your MP Soap
Once you have your soap melted, it is time to add your soap colorant.  You will need to add 2 drops of ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorant, 2 drops neon pink FUN Soap Colorant, and 3 drops tomato red FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, stir to fully incorporate the colorant.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Add Your Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil

Next, it is time to add your fragrance oil.  For this recipe, we are using Natures Garden’s Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.  So, at this time, add 7 grams of your Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Pour Your Soap into the Mold

Pour Your Soap into the MoldFinally, it is time to pour your soap into the mold.  You will need your raspberries/blackberries mold.  Then, pour your soap slowly into each cavity of the mold.  I also suggest using a container with a spout and emphasize slowly, as you can see, I may have overflowed my cavities a bit.  I was trying to take a picture and pour at the same time.  Once you have the soap in the mold, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol if you notice any air bubbles.  Allow them to setup before removing them from the mold.  If you have any overflow like I did, it will just remove very easily by tearing it off.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Lye Solution

Prepare Your Lye SolutionNow, you will prepare your lye solution.  First, weigh our 323 grams of distilled water.  Next, in a separate bowl, weigh out 116 grams of lye.  Then, slowly add the lye to the water.  You never want to add the water to the lye. Stir to completely dissolve the lye.  Set your lye solution aside for the moment and allow it to cool.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Prepare Your Oils

Prepare Your OilsWhile you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, prepare your oils.  In a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 212 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 128 grams of Avocado Oil, 42 grams of Grapeseed Oil, 85 grams of Cocoa Butter, 85 grams of Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 128 grams of Shea Butter, and 170 Sunflower Oil.  Then, melt your oils.  Once your oils are melted, set them aside to cool.  We want to allow both our soaping oils and our lye solution to cool to 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit.  You need their temperatures to be within 10 degrees of each other.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Colorants

Prepare Your ColorantsWhile you are waiting for your temperatures to drops, go ahead and get your colorants prepared.  First, we will prepare our titanium dioxide.  This will be used to create the white portion of the soap.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 7 grams of titanium dioxide.  Then, mix them with a small amount of your soaping oils that you prepared.  Stir to create a paste like mixture.  This will help the titanium dioxide disperse more easily in your soap batter.  Next, you will need another small bowl.  To this bowl, add 6 grams of the neon pink soap colorant, 3 grams of tomato red colorant, and 7 grams of the violet colorant.  Use a mixing spoon to mix the colorants together.  Set your colorants aside, we will come back to them.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Sodium Lactate

Next, we will also prepare the sodium lactate.  Sodium lactate is added to the soap to help harden it a bit.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 43 grams of sodium lactate.  Set this aside for now.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Before you begin putting together your soap batter, we have one last thing to prepare.  So, you will need one more small bowl.  In this bowl, we will add our Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.  To the bowl, add 64 grams of the fragrance oil.  Also, set this bowl aside for later.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Preparing Your Soap Batter

Preparing Your Soap BatterNow, we will begin preparing our soap batter.  First, to your cooled lye solution, add your 43 grams of sodium lactate.  Slowly, stir your lye solution to incorporate the sodium lactate.  Next, add your lye solution to your soaping oils.  Then, use a stick blender to emulsify.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Add Your Fragrance Oil

Add Your Fragrance Oil

At this time, you will want to add your fragrance oil.  So, to your soap batter add the Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil that you weighed out.  Then, use your stick blender to incorporate the scent.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Separate Your Soap Batter

Separate Your Soap Batter
Now, we will begin separating the soap batter.  While we will be creating three colors, we will be separating it into four bowls.  So, to the first bowl, add 300 grams of soap batter.  Next, in the second bowl, you will also need to add 300 grams of soap batter.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Color Your Soap Batter

Color Your Soap BatterOne bowl containing 300 grams of soap batter will remain uncolored.  The second bowl that contains 300 grams of soap batter will be white.  So, to this bowl, add the titanium dioxide mixture you prepared.  Then, use your stick blender to incorporate the colorant.  Now, the white batter will need to be separated into two portions.  We will need to separate out about 100 grams of soap.  So, add 100 grams of the white batter to a small bowl.  You will use this portion in a later step to top your soap.  You can set it aside for now.  The remaining white soap will be swirled into the main portion of your soap.  To the larger portion of the soap, add your raspberry colorant that you prepared with the red, pink, and purple FUN Soap Colorants.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Creating the Soap

Finally, it is time to add the soap batter to the mold.  So, with your mold in front of you, you will begin creating your soap.  Pour the soap in vertical strips in the mold.  While most of your strips should be pink, some you will use the white and uncolored soap batter.  Continue this process until you have filled your mold.

Creating the SoapOnce you have filled your mold, you are ready to swirl your soap batter.  You will need your wooden skewer.  Then, place the tip wooden skewer into the soap batter.  Move the skewer in a circular motion to create swirls throughout the soap.  When you are happy with your swirls, remove the skewer from the batter.  Lastly, very gently tap your soap mold on your table top to remove any air bubbles.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Topping Your Soap

Topping Your SoapFinally, we will begin topping the soap.  You will need to wait for your white soap batter to thicken.  You want it to be at a frosting-like consistency.  Then, add it to your decorating bag or Ziploc bag.  Cut your corner.  Place a small dollop of soap in the center of each bar of soap.

 

 

Finally, it is time to use the raspberry mp embeds you prepared earlier.  Place your raspberries directly on top of the white dollop.  You can use 1-3 raspberries for each bar of soap.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Curing Your Soap

Now, allow your soap to setup for about 24-48 hours before removing it from the mold.  Then, cut your soap.  Lastly, allow the raspberry cold process soap to cure before using it or selling it.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Weigh Prepare Your Shimmering Green Colorant for the Silicone Mold

Before we begin, we will prepare our shimmering green soap colorant.  In a small bowl, weigh out 6 grams of Diamond Dust Mica Pigment.  Then, add about 40 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix everything together until it is smooth and clump free.

Next, in the same bowl, add 15 grams of Natures Garden’s Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Again, mix to incorporate all of the ingredients.  Continue to mix until everything is mixed evenly.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Weigh Out the Soap for the Silicone Mold

First, weigh out the portion of the soap that will be added to the silicone muffin mold.  You will need to begin by cutting and weighing out 500 grams of Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, you will melt the soap base using a microwave oven.  You want to melt your soap in 30-second intervals, until the soap base is in a liquid state.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Adding the Apple Happy Camper Fragrance Oil

Now, we will be adding the Apple Happy Camper Fragrance Oil.  So, to the bowl containing the melted soap, add 50 grams of the Apple Happy Camper Fragrance Oil.  Then, mix until the apple fragrance oil is completely mixed.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Adding the Shimmering Green Colorant

Finally, we will be adding our green soap colorant.  So, while your soap is still fluid, add the green colorant you prepared.  Then, once again, mix to incorporate the colorant.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Pouring the Soap into the Mold

Now, pour your melted soap into the molds.  You will need to pour it into the silicone muffin mold.  You will need to create a total of 6 bases.  So, pour the melted soap into 6 cavities and allow them to setup.  Remove them from the mold.  Set them aside for now, we will come back to them.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Prepare Green Colorant for the Cake Pan

Before preparing the remaining soap, we will prepare our green colorant for the soap that will be added to the cake pan.  So, in a small bowl, add 6 grams of the diamond dust mica.  Then, add about 40 grams of the vegetable glycerin.  Mix well to create a smooth paste like consistency.  Then, add about 20 grams of the neon green colorant.  Again, mix to incorporate the colorant.  Set this colorant aside for a bit, we will come back to it.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Prepare the Soap for the Cake Pan

Next, we will prepare the soap for the cake pan.  We will pour this portion of the soap in a pan, then, later cut the soap into circles.  So, weigh out 900 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, melt the soap in the microwave.  Again, melt the soap in 30-second interval.

Once the clear soap base is melted, pour about 3/4 of the soap into the pan.  Spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Allow your soap to setup.  Set the remaining soap aside, we will come back to it.

 

 

Now, we will be adding the remaining soap to the cake pan.  So, go ahead and remelt the remaining green soap.  Use caution, you do not want the soap to get too hot.  You really need it to simply be in a fluid state.  It is extremely important that it is not too hot, we do not want it to melt the previous layer.  So, once your soap is remelted, spray the soap in the pan with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the melted soap directly on top of the soap in the pan that has already setup.  Once again, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol and quickly move to the next step.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Add the Tops of the Hats

Now, we will add the tops of the hats.  We will add these to the pan containing the soap that we just poured.  While your final layer of soap is still fluid, place the six muffin bases into the pan.  You want the largest part of the muffin to set into the soap in the pan.  Place all six in the pan.  Space them evenly throughout the pan.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Cutting Out the Hats

Now, we will begin cutting out the hats.  First, slowly and carefully, remove the soap from the pan. You will notice that you have a solid sheet with the tops of hats sticking out.  I would like to note, you will have some excess soap once you cut your hats out.  You can simply remelt the extra soap and pour it into a mold of your choosing.

Then, use a knife or wooden skewer to cut a circle, creating the brim around each hat.  You will want your circle to be approximately 4 inches in diameter.  You will want to do this with all six of your hats.  Then, remove your soaps from the sheet.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Creating the Black Bands

Next, we will be creating the black bands for each hat.  We will create a total of six bands.  They will need to be about 1/4″ wide and about 8 inches in length.  So, begin by weighing out the soap.  In a small mixing bowl, weigh out 70 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, melt the soap in the microwave.  Again, melt the soap in 30-second intervals until the soap is in a liquid state.  Then, add three drops of the black oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix to incorporate the colorant.  Finally, add 3 grams of the Apple Happy Camper Fragrance Oil and 3 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Stir, once again, to incorporate the fragrance oil before pouring it into the silicone 4 loaf mold.  However, keep about 15 grams of soap in your bowl, you will remelt it later and use it as a “glue” to adhere your bands to your hats.

Allow the soap to setup before removing it from the mold.  Once you have removed the soap from the mold, slice the soap into 1/4″ strips.  Place the soap in front of you vertically.  Then, slice them vertically as well.  You want the strips to be about 8″ long.  You can then trim off the extra later when you are adding them to the hat.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Add the Black Bands to Your Hat

Now, you will wrap the soap around the hat, using the leftover black soap to help adhere the bands.  First, spray the green hat with rubbing alcohol.  Then, wrap a black band around each hat.  If necessary, trim any excess black soap.  You will want to hold the bands in place for about 30 seconds each to give them time to adhere to the hats.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Create the Gold Buckles

Lastly, we will create the gold buckles.  First, you will need to weigh out 20 grams of Natures Garden’s Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Then, melt it in the microwave.  Next, add 10 drops of the neon yellow soap colorant.  Stir to incorporate the colorant.  Then, add 1 gram of the Apple Happy Candy Fragrance Oil.  Again, mix the ingredients together.  Finally, pour the soap into one cavity of the basic square mold.  You will only be creating a thin layer of yellow soap. Leave a few grams of yellow soap in your bowl for later, we will use it to help adhere the buckles to our hats. Once you have poured your yellow soap into the mold, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, allow it setup.

Remove the soap from the mold.  Slice the soap into six small squares.  You want all six squares to be about the same size.  Now, each square will need a square hole in the middle.  I used the pointed end of a wooden skewer to create the holes.  You want to make you square look like a buckle.

Once you have prepared your buckles, adhere them to your hats.  You want to place them right on top of the black bans.  You will use the same method to place the buckles as you did when placing the bands.  I placed mine in the area where the two ends of the black bands met.  This allowed me to hide that line.  Once you have adhered your buckles, your soap is ready to use!

We hope that you have enjoyed this St Patricks Day soap recipe.  For even more fragrance fun, be sure to check out our recipe box.  You will find both recipes and classes on candle making, soap making, and cosmetic making in this section of our website.  So, whether you are looking for creative ideas to expand your product line or new to soap, candle, and cosmetic making, you are sure to find what you are looking for.

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.
