Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap RecipeMoonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe

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

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: French Green Powder

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Rose Clay Powder

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Kaolin White Clay Powder

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

Colorant Amounts for the Dark Green Soap Portion:

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

 

 

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

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

9 grams of Vanilla Powder
13 grams of Vegetable Glycerin

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare the Soap

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Prepare the Whipped Soap Frosting

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

Whipped Soap Total Recipe Weights:

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Whipping the Soap Base

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

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

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

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

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

Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe: Topping Your Soap Loaf

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

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

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Raspberry EmbedsChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Raspberry Embeds

Now, let’s begin preparing our melt and pour soap.  First, you will need to prepare your raspberry embeds.  These embeds will be used to top our chocolate raspberry drizzle rolled mp soap. Once you have prepared them, set them aside, we will use them at the very end of this recipe.  However, since they need time to setup, we will prepare them first.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for Raspberries

150 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
7 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
7 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
2 drops Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant

Now, begin by weighing out your Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  In a small mixing bowl, weigh out 150 grams of the clear mp soap base.  Melt the soap in 30 second intervals until the soap is in a fluid state.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Soap Into the MoldChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Soap Into the Mold

Once you have colored and scented your soap, you will be pouring your soap into the mold.  For this soap recipe, we used a mold from flexiblemolds.com.  It is their Raspberries/Blackberries Soap & Candle Mold.  So, pour your melted soap into the cavities of this mold.  Then, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Lastly, allow them to setup before removing them from the molds.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap

In this next step, you will prepare your brown soap.  This soap will later be coated with whipped soap base and rolled, in the same manner, you would roll a jelly roll or cake roll.  You will need a pan lined with either a silicone baking mat, parchment paper, or wax paper.  Lining your pan prior to pouring the soap will make it much easier to remove from the pan once it sets up.  Since we are using fragrance oil, you will want to use a pan that is specifically for soap making.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the Brown Soap

800 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
40 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
5 grams Organic Cocoa Powder
59 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Melt and Pour SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Melt and Pour Soap

Your first step is to prepare your brown melt and pour soap.  We will once again be using Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  So, weigh out 800 grams of the clear mp soap base.  You want to melt the soap for 30 seconds at a time until it is melted.  You want to be careful not to overheat the soap base.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap ColorantChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap Colorant

Now, you will want to prepare your brown soap colorant.  This can be done while you are waiting for your soap to melt.  You will need a very small bowl, vegetable glycerin and Natures Garden’s organic cocoa powder.  In your bowl, weigh out 5 grams of cocoa powder.  Then, add 19 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix until you no longer see any clumps of powder.  By dispersing the cocoa powder in vegetable glycerin, you will be able to easily and smoothly mix it into your soap base.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Fragrance Oil and ColorantChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Fragrance Oil and Colorant

Next, you will need be adding your fragrance oil and colorant.  We will also be adding some vegetable glycerin.  Adding vegetable glycerin will give the soap flexibility so it can be rolled in a later step.  So, when your clear soap is in a liquid state, add 40 grams of vegetable glycerin, the brown cocoa powder colorant you prepared, 40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 40 grams of Natures Garden Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil.  When you have the ingredients added, mix thoroughly to ensure everything is completely blended.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Brown SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Brown Soap

Once everything is mixed together, you are ready to begin pouring your brown soap.  The brown soap will be poured into the wax paper lined pan you prepared.  So, pour your melted brown soap slowly into your pan.  Once you have poured the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Then, let the soap setup and remove it from the pan. Set it aside for the moment, you will come back to it in a later step.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Soap FrostingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Soap Frosting

Now, you will prepare your soap frosting.  Once it is prepared, we will spread it on our brown soap before rolling it up.  In addition, a small amount of the soap base will be placed across the top of the soap loaf to hold the raspberries in place.  The soap frosting will consist of both mp soap and whipped soap base.  By adding melt and pour soap to the whipped soap, it will allow the whipped soap to harden while maintaining a whipped frosting look.  If you added strictly whipped soap base, the whipped soap would remain soft and your soap roll would not stay together.  You will need to move quickly through the next few steps.  The whipped soap, once mixed with the melt an pour soap, will setup pretty fast.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the Whipped Soap

400 grams Whipped Soap Base
400 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
40 grams  Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

6 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
40 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap BaseChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

First, you will prepare your whipped soap base.  The whipped soap base is what gives the pink filling the fluffy frosting-like consistency.  So, you will want to prepare your whipped soap in a very deep mixing bowl.  Once you have your bowl out, prepare your hand mixer.  Then, in your deep mixing bowl, weigh out 400 grams of NG’s Whipped Soap Base.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil and Pink ColorantChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil and Pink Colorant

Now, before you add your melt and pour soap, you will be adding fragrance oil and pink colorant.  You will also be adding vegetable glycerin.  So, to the bowl with your whipped soap base add 40 grams Vegetable Glycerin, 40 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil, 40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, 3 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant, 2 drops Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant, and 6 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, use your hand mixer to blend all of the ingredients.  You will want to continue to mix until you have a fluffing frosting-like consistency.  Set this bowl aside, you will come back to it in just a minute.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your MP Soap BaseChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your MP Soap Base

Next, we will be preparing some diamond clear melt and pour soap base.  This soap base will be added to this whipped soap base.  So, weigh out and melt 400 grams if your clear melt and pour soap base in the microwave.  Remember to melt the soap in 30 second intervals.  Once it is in a liquid state we will begin putting our whipped soap base together.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Finishing Your Soap FrostingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Finishing Your Soap Frosting

The final step in finishing soap frosting is putting everything together.  Remember earlier when I said you would need to move quickly?  This is where it starts.  Once you add your melt and pour soap base to the pink whipped soap, you will need to quickly move so your can create you soap jelly roll before it sets up.  So, at this time, go ahead and add you melted soap to the bowl containing your pink whipped soap.  Then, use a hand mixer to blend it to a whipped soap frosting.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Putting Everything TogetherChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Putting Everything Together

Now, we will begin putting everything together.  You will need everything in front of you.  I highly recommend placing your brown soap on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper.  You will also need the soap raspberries you prepared earlier and your soap frosting.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Soap FrostingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Soap Frosting

Your first step will be adding your soap frosting.  You want to spread your soap frosting across the entire surface of the brown soap.  Do this, in the same manner, you would if you were frosting a cake.  However, you do want to leave about 40 grams of whipped soap in your bowl, we will use this portion to top the loaf once it is rolled.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Rolling Your Soap LoafChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Rolling Your Soap Loaf

Finally, you will be rolling your soap loaf.  Place your soap in front of you vertically.  Then, begin rolling the soap like you would a jelly roll.  Once you have rolled your soap completely, remove any extra whipped soap you find along any edges.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Whipped ToppingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Whipped Topping

Lastly, we will be adding a few finishing touches.  This will include both the whipped soap base and the raspberry embeds.  First, you will need the remaining whipped soap frosting.  If needed you should be able to heat it one time for about 15 seconds so it will be easier to work with.  However, you will only be able to do this one.  Next, spray the top of the rolled soap loaf with rubbing alcohol so that your whipped soap will adhere better.  Then, place the pink soap frosting across the top.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Raspberry EmbedsChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Raspberry Embeds

Finally, we will be adding your raspberry embeds.  Place the raspberry embeds directly on top of your whipped soap.  I used all but a few of mine but definitely would have had room for all of them had I placed my raspberries closer together.  Go ahead and add your raspberry embeds to your soap loaf.  Then, if need be, use a clean paper towel or cloth to wipe off any extra soap base on the brown soap before moving on.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your White Chocolate DrizzleChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your White Chocolate Drizzle

Your very last finishing touch will be adding your white chocolate drizzle.  The drizzle will be created using Natures Garden’s Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap.  The soap base will be scented but uncolored.  This is the final step and is done right before you begin slicing your soap.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the White Soap:

40 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
2 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
2 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your White SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your White Soap

So, in a small mixing bowl, you will be preparing your white soap.  Weigh out and melt 40 grams of your mp soap base.  Then, 2 grams Natures Garden’s Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil and 2 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Then, stir to incorporate the fragrance oil.  Lastly, use a spoon to drizzle your soap loaf.  Allow it to setup, then slice your soap.

I hope that you have enjoyed creating this project with us!  I thoroughly enjoyed creating it for you!  In fact, this is probably my absolute favorite soap I have ever created here at Natures Garden.  I was inspired by an actual food recipe I found on Pinterest.  I will most definitely be creating this raspberry chocolate Swiss roll this weekend.  You must check it out!  If you have already tried it let me know what you think on our Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook page.
