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 RecipeSt Patricks Day Soap Recipe

March 17th is right around the corner.  So, Natures Garden created this St Patricks Day soap recipe for this occasion. For one day everything will turn green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. From foods to rivers to people, a green sea will take over our streets for the day. The history of St. Patrick’s Day might surprise some though.  St Patrick Day didn’t begin as a day to eat, drink, and party. In 1631, the Catholic Church named the day an official Feast Day for St. Patrick.  St. Patrick was the patron saint of Ireland. It was a day of religious observation.  Read more about Saint Patrick and his life here.

900 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
45 grams Apple Happy Camper Fragrance Oil
6 grams Diamond Dust Mica
130 grams Vegetable Glycerin
20 grams Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

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.

St Patricks Day Soap Recipe: Add the Gold Buckles to Your Hats

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.

Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe: Mixing Everything TogetherStrawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Next, we will be mixing everything together.  We will do this at room temperature.  When soaping at room temperature, your batter, in most cases, will thick much more slowly, than if you soap at a hotter temperature.  So, when you need more time to work, like when you are creating a swirled soap, we highly recommend soaping at room temperature.  Now, once both the lye solution and oils have come to room temperature, pour the lye solution into the bowl containing the oils.  Then, stick blend to emulsify them.  Finally, add 91 grams of Strawberry and Champagne Type Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stick blend your batter to incorporate the fragrance oil.

Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe: Separating Your Soap BatterStrawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe: Separating Your Soap Batter

Next, you will need to separate your soap batter.  We will be adding our soap batter to the bowls of colorants you prepared earlier. Most of the bowls need 225 grams of soap batter added.  However, the bowl containing the titanium dioxide should not have any batter added to it.  So, go ahead and add 225 grams of soap batter to each bowl, with the exception of the one containing titanium dioxide.

Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe: Separating Your Soap BatterOnce you have separated the colored portion, you will notice you have quite a bit of soap remaining in your larger bowl.  This larger portion, will all be white.  So, add the titanium dioxide to this bowl.  Stick blend to fully mix your colorant. Then, stick blend each of your colored bowls, starting with the lightest color, working your way to the darkest color.

Finally, we will be adding just a little bit of our white soap batter to the soap loaf itself.  You will need to separate 225 grams of your white soap batter.  This is the portion that will be used for our swirl.  Set your remaining larger portion of white batter aside.

Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Creating Your SwirlStrawberries and Champagne CP Soap: Creating Your Swirl

Now, you will be creating your swirl.  We will be creating an in the pot swirl.  This type of swirl is done right in your bowl, then poured into the mold.  So, you will first need an empty bowl.  Then, you will need to pour the contents of each of your 225 grams bowls of soap batter into the empty bowl.  However, you want to pour each color in various areas of the bowl.  We will start with your first color, this can be whichever color you choose.  Look at your bowl as if it were a clock.  Pour a little bit of the batter at 12:00, some at 3:00, a bit more at 6:00, etc. Repeat this process with each color until you have used all of your colored batter.  When you finish, the soap in the bowl will look sort of like a color wheel.

This doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with them, we have made plenty like this as well.  However, one great thing with an emulsified scrub is that you can layer it.  The second unique thing about this scrub, in addition to vanilla powder and apple pie spice powder, it contains two different types of sugar.  The brown layer contains brown sugar and the white contains white sugar.  Lastly, this sugar scrub recipe uses two different fragrance oils.  We scented it with Cinnabun Type Fragrance Oil and Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil.

Red Currant Fragrance Oil is juicy enough to quench the thirst of all of your soaping needs!  Homemade soap makers can use up to 5% in cold process soaps or melt and pour soap recipes.  Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results show that this fragrance had a perfect pour!  There was no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and no discoloration!  This scent is absolutely amazing in CP soap!  Wonderfully strong and fresh, this scent shines through in cured soap! If you wish to color your soap, we recommend using red soap dye according to your specification.  Remember, never use candle dye to color your bath and body products as they are not body safe.
