Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparations

Before we begin you should make sure that your work station is clean and ready for you to work. Further, you should wash and dry all the equipment that you are going to be working with. Doing this will help to ensure that your finished product is clean, as well. Nothing is worse than finishing a project and finding a speck right on the surface. Additionally, you may find it easier to gather all your ingredients before you begin creating your soap. Although you can simply grab everything as you go, it can be helpful to have everything in your work space before starting. This will make are that you aren’t caught off guard and that you will have everything that you need as you need it.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Beginning with the Soap ColorsSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Beginning with the Soap Colors

First of all, you are going to focus on preparing the three color portions that you will need in a future step.Later on, you will add these colored pastes to separated portions of your melted soap base. Preparing the colors first will make it easier to work with the soap and add these colors later on. This way you will have more time to pour your soap batter. Also, it will be less likely for you to have your soap set up before it gets in the mold. So, take your three disposable cups and assign each one to a different color. You will need to make sure you have a cup for the pink, white, and brown portions of your soap.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Pink Colorant PortionSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Pink Colorant Portion

Now, we are going to get the pink soap colorant portion ready for you to use in a later step. So, retrieve your scale and set it to measure in grams. Next, add 7 grams of the Rose Clay, 15 grams of the Vegetable Glycerin, and 10 drops of the Neon Pink Soap Colorant to one of your disposable cups. Then, stir this mixture into a paste and make sure that all the ingredients are incorporated. After, set this mixture aside until after you melt the soap base.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Brown Colorant PortionSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Brown Colorant Portion

Next, you will be getting the brown colorant ready for that portion of the soap. So, use the scale to fill your next disposable cup with 7 grams of Cocoa Powder and 16 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. You will stir this until it is a paste consistency and has incorporated all the ingredients. Then, you can set aside this colorant mixture for you to use in a later step.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the White Colorant PortionSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the White Colorant Portion

Next, you will prepare the last portion of the colorants. So, grab the cup that is meant to contain the white portion of your soap colorant. Then, you can add 5 grams of Kaolin Clay Powder and 10 grams of Vegetable Glycerin to this remaining disposable cup. You will need to stir this to incorporate all the ingredients and create the proper consistency. Then, you can set the white colorant aside until you need it later on.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Melting the Soap BaseSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Melting the Soap Base

Now, you are ready to prepare the actual soap portion of your recipe. So, you will cut up and weigh out 904 grams of the Natures Garden Cocoa Butter Soap Base. Also, make sure that you put this soap base into a microwave safe, glass bowl. After you cut up the soap, you can use your microwave to melt the cocoa butter soap base. You will want to melt the soap with 30 second bursts and be sure to stir in between the heating times. This will prevent you from accidentally over heating the soap base. You will need to continue the melting and stirring cycle until the soap is entirely liquid.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Adding the Fragrance OilSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, you will be adding a very scrumptious fragrance oil into the melted soap. So, you will need to weigh out 45 grams of the Chocolate Covered Strawberries Fragrance Oils. Then, you should take your newly melted soap base. After, you can add the weighed fragrance oil to the soap. Also, add in 45 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to the melted soap. This will prevent some of the discoloration that could be caused by the fragrance oil. Since the fragrance has a 6% vanillin content, it would be likely to create a dark brown color in the soap if left on its own. This is why we need to add in the vanilla white stabilizer, as it prevents discoloration and allows us to color the soap as we see fit. After you have added the soap scent and Vanilla White, you can stir these ingredients into the soap to incorporate everything into the mixture.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Separating the Scented Soap BaseSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Separating the Scented Soap Base

Then, you need to separate the melted soap base. You will incorporate one of the three soap colorants you prepared earlier to each of the three containers. So, take each of the three containers of color and set them up nearby. Then, to the first mixing bowl, weigh about 301 grams of the melted soap base. Next, add your pink clay soap colorant. Next, in the second bowl, add 301 grams of the melted soap base.  Again, add your colorant, this time the cocoa powder colorant. Finally, you should have about 301 grams of soap left in the bowl that you used to originally melt the soap. To this bowl, add the kaolin white clay. Make sure that you mix well to incorporate all the ingredients in each bowl. Afterwards, you will be ready to pour your soap colors into the silicone soap loaf mold!

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Filling the Soap Mold

Now, it is time to fill your silicone soap mold with your colored soap portions. So, get your silicone loaf soap mold prepared in your work area. Know that you will have enough soap to fill two of the four loaf cavities in the soap mold. Also, you will need to grab two of your proportioned cups of colored soap, which two colors that you use initially is up to you. Then, use both your hands and pour these two different colors into the soap mold simultaneously. Add a bit with these two colors, then switch to the next color. You will pour these at the same time, as well. You will need to repeat this process of alternating these three colors and pouring two at a single time until you use up each of your three soap portions.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Adding the Finishing Touches on the SoapSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Adding the Finishing Touches on the Soap

Next, you are ready to add the finishing touches to the soap in your silicone soap loaf mold. So, take your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol and spray the top of your soap loaves. This will make sure that any air bubbles that may be in the soaps are released before the soap sets up completely. As a general rule, you should always spray rubbing alcohol after pouring melt and pour soap. Afterwards, you will need to wait for your soap loaves to completely set up before doing anything else for this craft recipe. If you move the soap before the loaves set up completely, then you could possibly mess up the tops of the soap. This could lead to a wrinkled appearance on top or even accidentally spilling the soaps.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Cutting the Finished Soap

After the soap completely sets up, you will be ready to remove your loaves of soap from the mold and slice the soaps into bars! Your soaps should be completely set up at this point, so pop the two soap loaves out of the silicone soap mold. Then, you can get these finished soap loaves ready to cut into individual bars of soap. So, use your mitre box and cutter to cleanly slice your bars into bars of soap that are the perfect size for use. Now, your soaps are finally finished!

590 grams Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap
29 grams Bamboo Hemp Fragrance Oil
16 Whole Star Anise

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Necessary Preparations Prior to Starting

First of all, you are going to want to clean all of your equipment and your work station. This will make sure that your finished product is clean and free of contaminants. This process isn’t difficult and will absolutely benefit your homemade products. So, sanitize the counter top or the table that you are going to work on. In addition, clean and sanitize all of the equipment you will be using.

Also, you may want to get all of your supplies together and within reach of your work space. This way you will have all the equipment ready to use for creating the melt and pour soap. You will also want to fill your spray bottle with rubbing alcohol so that you can spray the freshly poured melt and pour soap quickly. This will release any air bubble that pop up when pouring your mp soap base.  In addition, rubbing alcohol will help the layers adhere to each other.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Getting the Whole Star Anise ReadyBamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Getting the Whole Star Anise Ready

First, you are going to get your whole star anise herb ready for later use in the homemade soap recipe. Since you are going to need this cosmetic herb for your clear layer of melt and pour, it will help to have the stars ready. Since it will save you time to get this herb ready, you should pick out your Star Anise before you begin the recipe. So, look through your bag of Whole Star Anise to find some whole pieces of the Star Anise that you would like to use in the soap. Although you can use broken pieces as long as you don’t mind that ascetic in your final bars of soap. Regardless of your preference, you will need to get together 16 individual whole star anise pieces for this melt and pour soap recipe.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Preparing the Clear Layer of SoapBamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Preparing the Clear Layer of Soap

Next, you are going to get the clear melt and pour soap ready to use for your first layer. So, grab your scale and weigh out 200 grams of your Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap into a microwave safe bowl. After, you will need to use your microwave to melt your clear soap base. Melting your soap base should be done in short bursts. You want to use thirty second busts in the microwave until all of the soap is completely melted. This method of melting your soap will prevent you from accidentally over heating your mp soap base.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe After the Soap has Melted

Now, that your melt and pour soap has finished melting you are going to be ready to pour the soap into your mold. You don’t need to add any color to this layer because you will need to see the Star Anise Whole through the melt and pour soap. Further, we don’t need to add fragrance oil to this layer. But, don’t worry about your soap because the bottom layer will be scented. We just can’t scent this clear layer or the fragrance would add a yellow tint to the layer. This is because the soap doesn’t have a color and the Bamboo Hemp Fragrance Oil has a slight yellow tint. So, this layer of your soap should remain unscented and uncolored.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Pouring Your First Soap LayerBamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Pouring Your First Soap Layer

After your clear, unscented melt and pour soap has entirely melted, you are ready to pour your melted soap. Be sure to move quickly as you pour your soap as you are going to need to place in the herbs before your soap sets up. So, retrieve the soap mold and the star anise that you have chosen for the top layer of your melt and pour soap. Now, pour your melt and pour soap into your soap mold.

Next, take your whole star anise and place each individual star anise into the center of each cavity in the soap mold. After all of the star anise has been placed, spray the top of your soap layer with the rubbing alcohol. This will release bubbles in the melted soap and help your layers to stick together better. Now, make sure that your layer is completely set up before moving on to the next step.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe After the Clear Soap Layer is Completely Set UpBamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Pouring the Second Clear Soap Layer

Now, you will see that your first clear layer has not completely covered the entire whole star anise. This amount of melt and pour soap was intentional, as it will help with the placement of the star anise. Next, we will be pouring the second half of the clear layer to completely cover the star anise whole. The thought process behind this method of embedding the herb was that this will help to hold the herb in place. So, this means that your stars will be less likely to be crooked or start to float. So, your star anise will be better at staying where you put it, in the center and top of your bars of soap.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Pouring the Second Clear LayerBamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Pouring the Second Clear Layer

Next, you are going to pour the second half of the clear melt and pour soap layer. So, melt another portion of 200 grams of clear melt and pour soap. You are going to want to melt this batch the same way that you did before to prevent burning the soap. So, use your microwave in 30 second increments. Before you pour this portion of clear melt and pour soap make sure to spray the previous layer with rubbing alcohol. After, pour the second clear layer onto your previously set up soap layer. Then, spray the top of the melt and pour soap layer with the rubbing alcohol.  Allow the final clear layer to completely setup before moving to the next step.

Bamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Preparing the Second Layer of Your SoapBamboo Hemp Soap Recipe Preparing the White Layer of Your Soap

Next, you are going to be preparing the white layer of your melt and pour soap bars. So, grab your scale and weigh out 590 grams of the Natures Garden’s Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap Base. Next, you will need to melt your soap base with a microwave. Again, we recommend that you use 30 second increments until the soap is entirely liquid. After your soap is entirely melted you are ready to add the fragrance oil. So, weigh out 29 grams of Natures Garden’s Bamboo Hemp Fragrance Oil. Then, you are going to add this refreshing fragrance oil to your melted soap base. Stir in the fragrance evenly to make sure that all of the scent has been incorporated. After, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Now, you are ready to pour your white layer of Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap Base into your soap mold. This white melt and pour soap will be the bottom layer for your finished soap bars. After this final layer is poured, you will want to spray the top with some of the rubbing alcohol. This will help to remove the air bubbles that may be trapped under the surface of this soap layer. Once you spray the soap, wait for this layer to entirely set up. After this white soap layer is entirely hardened, you will be ready for the next step in this process.

Next, you are going to want to slice your finished slab of soap into individual bars. First, remove the melt and pour soap from your mold. Place the mold on the table or counter top, flip it over, and gently press to release the bamboo hemp soap from the mold. Then, turn the soap over so you can see the top clear layer. You will notice, the mold that you have used will provide you with a single slab of soap, but there are indented portions that are designed for easy cutting. Before you cut, you are going to want to set your slab of layered soap onto the cutting board. Now, you can cut your soap using a knife, or the soap cutter typically used with a mitre box for soap making. So, use your chosen cutting implement to slice along the lower sections of the melt and pour soap slab. Once you cut along each line you will end up with 16 individual soap bars that each soap embedded with a whole star anise. Now, you have completed your melt and pour soaps and are ready to use your finished soap!
