Since this spice is a blend of various herbs, there are many plants that were needed to create this herb wholesale. The essential herbs and spices that are used to create Apple Pie Spice are cinnamon, lemon peel, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. A few of these ingredients can be grown in an herb garden, but many of the spices will become trees. So, most of these spices require more space and effort than other types of herbs. But, we can still discuss how they are grown and harvested.

Apple Pie Spice Uses: Where Do Spices Come From?

First, we have the cinnamon herb, which comes from the bark of the laurel tree. This process is a bit complicated, but it begins by growing the tree for two years. After, the tree is cut down and the following year little shoots will appear. These shoots will have a thin layer of bark on the inside. This bark is collected, dried, and used as the spice we all know and love.

Second, we have lemon peel powder. These lemons grow on trees in warm, full sun conditions. Once the tree is about three years old, it will begin to produce fruit. These fruits are harvested once they are yellow and firm with a slightly glossy appearance. Then, the skin of these fruits will be dried and ground to be used for lemon peel powder.

Next, ginger is a root that can be grown using roots that have visible green “eyes”. These “eyes” will sprout long stems and below the dirt, the root will grow larger. This plant prefers nutrient rich soil that can hold moisture. However, the set up needs to be free draining to prevent over saturating the plant. About eight months after planting, you can dig up the ginger root.

Additionally, cloves are dried flowers that grow on clove trees. These trees prefer a wet, tropical climate and can’t survive below fifty-nine degrees Fahrenheit. These flowers are picked before they have the chance to open. Then, they are sun dried for about five days.

Finally, nutmeg is produced from a nutmeg tree, which creates yellow fruits that are similar to apricots. Inside the fruit are purple/brown seeds that are covered in a red skin. The skin, which is used to make mace, is removed and the seed can be ground into nutmeg.

Common Melt and Pour Soap QuestionsCommon Melt and Pour Soap Questions

At Natures Garden, we are here to help you succeed! We are going to answer some common melt and pour soap questions that we get asked frequently by customers.  Since these questions are common, its likely that these are the issues most soap makers will come across when making their melt and pours soaps. So, let’s get these soaping issues solved so you can create some gorgeous bars of mp soap!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Melt and Pour Soap Supplies?

Yes, we do! We offer all kinds of melt and pour soap making supplies! Click on the Soap Making Supplies tab on the website and you will find soap base, soap colorants, an mp soap kit, soap additives, and soap molds. Everything that you could need right in one easy place!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can I Make Soap Without Using Lye?

Since the mp soap base has already been made, you can create melt and pour soap without worrying about the lye. If you are wondering “What is the difference between melt and pour soap and cold process soap?”, then this is a big difference. While melt and pour is pre-made and can be remelted, cold process soap is made from scratch using lye.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can Melt and Pour Soap Be Used Right Away?

Since mp soap was already made and the saponification process has already taken place, you don’t have to wait to use your soap. As soon as the melt and pour soaps have hardened in the molds, you can pop them out and use them!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Where Do I Find the Melt and Pour Soap IngredientsCommon Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Where Do I Find the Melt and Pour Soap Ingredients?

You can find the soap base ingredients in two places. The first place is online, as each mp soap base has the ingredients listed in the description. Also, these ingredients can be found on the label of the base itself.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What Soap Making Supplies Do I Need to Make Melt and Pour Soap?

Most importantly, you will need a microwave or double boiler and mp soap. Also, you will need a cutting board, knife, a microwave safe dish, spoon, rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, and a soap mold. If you want fragrance, color, or herbs you will need to have these out, too .

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Melt Soap Into a New Bar?

Melt and Pour soap can be melted using a double boiler on a stove top or a bowl in the microwave. Just make sure that you use 30 second intervals to warm the soap int the microwave. Otherwise, it may get too hot and your soap will be ruined. Also, make sure that you are watchful when melting soap on the stove. While a double boiler on medium heat will help to protect your soap, you don’t want to heat it too much longer after it is liquid.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Much Soap Will I Need for My Mold?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Much Soap Will I Need for My Mold?

For every ounce by volume that your mold is you will need 31 grams of soap by weight. So, let’s go to the Soap Mold page and pick one. I choose Ollie Octopus,which says it holds 4.5 ounces in the description. So, we are going to take  4.5 times the 31 to give us 139.5 grams

Formula: (Weight Needed Per Ounce) x (Ounces Mold Holds) = Total Weight

Equation: 31 grams per ounce  x  4.5 ounces = 139.5 grams of soap

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Get My Melt and Pour Soap Out of the Mold?

Sometimes your soap may get stuck in the mold. You can place the mold in the fridge for a short amount of time. Once the chilled soap mold is removed, the soaps should pop out fairly easily.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What Temperature Should I Pour Melt and Pour Soap?

Melt and Pour soap should be poured in a liquid state, which should be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. So, you can pour your soap once it has all completely melted.

 

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Do I Have Bubbles in My Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Do I Have Bubbles in My Melt and Pour Soap?

Although making air bubbles is unavoidable, you can get rid of them by spraying lightly with rubbing alcohol. These are often air bubbles that form when you pour, so you can release them by spraying right after you pour. However, bubbles that are a light-yellow color are fragrance oil and won’t go away by spraying. This is either due to adding too much fragrance oil or not mixing thoroughly.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Homemade Soap So Oily?

One reason that you soaps would be oily is that they contain too much oil. So, you can try reducing the amount of the fragrance oil and/or the carrier oil that you are adding to your soaps. If your bars look like they are sweating, then it could be due to not wrapping the soap soon enough. Since your soap contains an ingredient, vegetable glycerin, that pulls moisture to it, it will pull moisture out of the air to create “sweat”. But, you can lessen your chances of this by wrapping your soaps right after they are out of the mold.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Melt and Pour Soap Dissolving So Fast?

While a softer bar of soap is great for nourishing the skin, it is more likely to dissolve quickly in water. So, you can add some extra oil to your soap to moisturize. However, adding too much will make your bar very soft and it will dissolve quickly in the shower.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Swirl Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Swirl Melt and Pour Soap?

While it is possible to swirl mp soap, it is a bit trickier to swirl compared to cp soaps. On its own melt and pour soap won’t swirl. Instead, the colors will mix before the soap hardens. So, you need to add a cosmetic powder, like clay, fruit, or veggie powders. This will slightly thicken the soap and create tension between the two colors that are gong to create the swirl. We did this in our own Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Melt and Pour Soap Lather?

There are a few possible answers to this question. First off, soap can loose its lather due to an excess of oils and herbs being added to the bar. Also, some types of our soap base use ingredients that naturally lather better.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Soap Not Hardening?

If your melt and pour soap isn’t hardening, then it could be due to adding too much oil. Whether the culprit is fragrance oil, carrier oil, or both, it is most likely that this excess oil is to blame. Another possibility is that the soap was overheated, which resulted in a break down in the soaps that prevents it from working properly.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can You Use Essential Oils in Melt and Pour Soap?

Of course! Many essential oils can be used in soap making and the rules for using them safely are just like the ones for fragrance oils. So, you need to check the IFRA sheet to determine usage rates and figure out whether the specific essential oil is body safe. You can find this IFRA statement on the page of each individual essential oil that we carry. Many are body safe scents, but some are not considered safe for prolonged skin contact.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Color Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Color Melt and Pour Soap?

We have soap dye, soap colorants, and powdered herbs that can be used to color your homemade soaps. The soap dyes are great for solid color soaps, but tend to bleed when used in layered soap. Also, the white soap base will provide a more pastel color and the clear soap will give a more true color. The FUN Soap Colorants are vibrant colors that are more true in all soap bases. Lastly, the natural form of coloring soaps is cosmetic herbs, which are perfect for a rustic or natural look. Just be aware that herbs can oxidize over time and cause discoloration of the soap.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Do You Offer Melt and Pour Soap Recipes?

Of course! We have a wide variety of melt and pour soap recipes and soap making ideas. On the top of the website you will see a box with the words “Free Recipes & Classes”. After you click on this fine the melt and pour soap recipes and you will find all of our recipes using mp soap.

Yes! We have the Melt and Pour Soap Kit available with options to choose either Goats Milk MP Soap or Ultra Clear MP Soap.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Soap Frosting Setup on My Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Soap Frosting Setup on My Melt and Pour Soap?

If you are making cupcake soap wholesale, then the frosting is a pretty big deal. You are going to want to use the whipped soap base, melt and pour soap, and vegetable glycerin. The soap base allows the frosting to harden on the cupcake, while the vegetable glycerin allows for a little flexibility.  If you are curious and thinking, “How do I make melt and pour soap frosting?”, then check out our Soap Frosting Recipe to see how we make the frosting for our soap cupcakes. While the recipe goes into more detail, basically it is equal parts of mp soap base and whipped soap base with 5% of vegetable glycerin and fragrance oil all whipped into a frosting consistency.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: I Would Like to Know If Most Recipes are Showing Oils Measured in Weight Ounces Or in Fluid Ounces?

In our soap recipes we will use weight ounces. We do this because weight ounces are more accurate than fluid ounces. So, we highly recommend weighing your ingredients using a gram scale. This will allow you to be precise in your measurements and prevent accidental mix ups.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What is the Best Way to Wrap Melt and Pour Soap?

There are a few different ways that you can package your finished soaps. We prefer to use shrink wrap, but you can use ziplock bags, or a decorative box.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Should Soap Be Stored?

So, let’s get started in learning all about soap!

Before we introduce you to soap making, we need to talk about the difference between Melt and Pour Soap and Cold Process Soap. Both can be made at home, but they each require different steps. Melt and Pour soap is the simplest option of the two, as soap batch has already been created. Plus, the lye has already cured and you can use the soap immediately. All you have to do is melt your soap base and create the appearance you want for your batch. The other option is Cold Process Soap, which allows you to formulate your bars to be perfect for your needs. While this method has a bit more time invested, there is a lot more that you can do creatively with CP Soap.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Soap Making SafetyHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Soap Making Safety

One of the most important parts of making soap from scratch is safety, as cp soap uses lye. So, you will want to tie your hair back, wear safety goggles, clothing that covers arms and legs, closed shoes, and a face mask. You can read more about soap making safety and find the soaping safety supplies we offer by clicking here. Also, you will want to have a well ventilated area to create your lye solution. Another very important thing to remember is that you should only pour lye into water and make sure to go slowly while stirring. Don’t let these precautions scare you though. You will be perfectly fine as long as you are wearing your safety gear and are being cautious!

There are all kinds of properties that you may want to have in your batch of soap. Many people want to know how to make moisturizing soap, how to make sensitive skin soap, or any other properties. The best way to do it is formulate your very own soap recipe and the simplest way to create your very own uniquely perfect soap recipe is the Soap Calculator. All you have to do is enter the oils and butters that you will be using in the recipe and it will tell you all the characteristics of the bar before you even make it. From this point you can tweak the amounts or switch out an ingredient to create a batch that is just right.


How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Adding Scent to CP Soap

While many of the same scents can be used in both CP and MP soaps, there are more factors to consider for cold process soap. Again, you can either use a fragrance oil or an essential oil. But, the fragrance oil’s have the potential to change the consistency and emulsification of your batch. So, you have to be wary of ricing, where the batch clumps and looks like rice pudding. Also, a scent could cause acceleration. This is when the trace happens sooner, which is when the soap emulsifies. The batch will get thick enough to leave a trace of soap on top of the batch after scooping some out and drizzling it back in. Lastly, you could have separation of the fragrance or discoloration of your finished soap.

Some fragrance oils won’t cause any issues and others may cause a few of these issues, its all about the chemical make up. For instance, vanilla scents will often discolor to a dark color due to the vanillin and may need a Vanilla White Stabilizer. If you are curious about a specific fragrance oil, then head over to the Natures Garden YouTube channel. We have tested every scent in one of our soap recipes to show exactly how the scent performs in soap! While we do have a brief explanation of the scent performance on each Fragrance’s page, this allows you to actually see whats happening to the soap.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Coloring CP SoapHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Coloring CP Soap

Again, you can use either herbs or soap pigments to color you soaps. There a few pigmented herbs that can be used to naturally color your soap. In our coloring class, we have options you can use for creating yellow, green, brown, red, and purple hues. But, we have found that Da Bomb and FUN soap colorants are more stable and vivid in cold process soap. While these colorants are created in a laboratory now, they  are able to create versions that are more pure and better than what was previously mined. One example of CP soap that takes the best of both options is the Total Hot Man CP Soap Recipe, which includes Activated Charcoal and Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.

How Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Choosing a CP Soap MoldHow Do You Make Homemade Soap?: Choosing a CP Soap Mold

Once your batch of cold process soap has reached trace and is ready to pour, it will be hot. So, you are going to need to make sure that your mold can handle it. Otherwise, your soap mold could end up melting and making a big mess. This means that it would be unlikely that you will be able to make small cold process guest soaps. However, most Mold Market Soap Molds will hold up just fine! Also, all of the SIlicone Soap Molds are sturdy enough to handle the soap. If you are looking to create a loaf of soap, then you may want to try the Silicone Soap Mold- 4 Loaf Molds. Alternatively, you can use a mold like the Silicone Soap Mold- 6 Cavity Flower to create individual bars in fun designs.

Rainbow MP Soap RecipeRainbow MP Soap Recipe

Sometimes our inspirations come from the simplest things.  Well, over the past few weeks I have been testing, creating videos, and packaging cold process soaps using Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants.  Once they were packaged and labeled, I took them to Shannon to display in the store.  We carry 21 of these colorants and I tested each soap colorant using five different amounts.  So, this meant that we had over 100 soaps to display.  Shannon decided to display them on a round, tiered display in our store, see the display here.  When I saw how she displayed them, I was immediately inspired to create a variety of rainbow themed recipes that will go on the bottom tier of her display.  So, below, you will find my Rainbow MP Soap Recipe, the second of several recipes we will be creating inspired by this display.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your SoapRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Soap

First, I prepared all of my soap.  This means weighing out and cutting up all of the soap for each of the seven layers.  You will need your scale, mixing bowls, and clear melt and pour soap.  Now, in each of your seven mixing bowls, weigh out and cut up 130 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Purple Soap Layer

Now, you will need one of your bowls of clear melt and pour soap.  You will also need the deep purple FUN Soap Colorant, fragrance oil, and Vanilla White.  Finally, you will need your 4 loaf mold, and your bottle of rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Purple Soap LayerSo, place your mixing bowl in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  If you notice that the soap has not completely melted, you may need about 10 more seconds.  This will all just depend on your microwave.  Once your soap has melted, add 4 drops of the purple soap colorant.  Then, add 6 grams of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil and 6 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Use a mixing spoon to blend the ingredients.  Finally, pour your melted purple soap into the loaf mold.  Spray the melted soap with rubbing alcohol to release the air bubbles.  Allow the purple soap to setup completely before moving on.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Blue Soap Layer

Next, we will be preparing a blue layer of soap.  So, you will, once again, need one of your bowls of weighed out soap, your fragrance oil, and Vanilla White.  In addition, you will need the ultramarine blue soap colorant and your soap mold.  At this time, also get your Angel Wings fragrance oil and Vanilla White Color Stabilizer ready.

Next, we will prepare our Kelly green soap.  So, once again, you will need one of your bowls of soap.  This time, you will need the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant.  Also, your fragrance oil, color stabilizer, rubbing alcohol, and soap mold should be in front of you.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Orange Soap Layer

Now, we will prepare our orange layer of soap.  For this layer, we will use Natures Garden’s Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant.  So, you will need this colorant along with another bowl of soap base you weighed out earlier.  In addition, you will need your Angel Wings Fragrance Oil and Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Also, place your mold in front of you and you rubbing alcohol close.

So, first, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir to blend the ingredients.  Now, in two of the cavities of the silicone 4 loaf mold, pour the melted soap.  You want to pour half the soap in one cavity, and half in the other.  Allow it to setup before moving to the next color.

Next, once again, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix everything together slowly and thoroughly until everything is combined.  Spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the orange soap right on top, in the same manner you did before.  Allow the soap to setup before you prepare the next color.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Purple LayerRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Purple Layer

Finally, we will begin preparing the purple layer.  We will melt one more layer of soap.  So, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Now, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, stir to incorporate the ingredients. Spray the blue soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the purple soap right on top of the blue soap.  Again, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol.  Allow the soap to setup before you move on.

Lastly, once the soap has setup, remove it from the mold.  Then, slice it into strips.  You want them to be about 3/4 inch wide and about 5 3/4 inches.  So, you want to be sure you are slicing them long ways.  Finally, do the same with the soap in the cavity of the mold.  You will notice that due to the addition of vegetable glycerin, the soap is nice and flexible.  This will allow us to bend them into a rainbow shape and later place them on top of our whipped soap.  Go ahead and shape each rainbow so that you have them ready for the top of the soap.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

Now, we will begin preparing our whipped soap base.  The whipped soap base is meant to look like clouds in this recipe.  It will also anchor our rainbows to our soap loaf.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 200 grams of the whipped soap base.  Next, add 20 grams of vegetable glycerin, 20 grams of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, and 20 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Then, use a hand mixer to fluff the soap to a fluffy cloud-like consistency.  Set this aside for a moment, we will come back to it.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

In a separate mixing bowl, weigh out 200 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Melt the soap base using your microwave.  Once the soap is melted, pour it into the bowl containing the whipped soap.  Finally, mix the soap once again with your hand mixer.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Topping the Soap

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Topping the Soap
At this time, we will begin topping our soap loaf.  Place the whipped soap on top of each loaf, covering the entire loaf.  You will use half of the whipped soap on each loaf.  So, when you are finished it will look like clouds on top of your soap.

 

 

 

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Topping the Soap

Then, place the rainbows on top of the loaves.  We used about 4 rainbows on each loaf.

Once your soap has finished setting up, slice your soap using your mitre box and mitre box cutter.  Then, you can use your rainbow melt and pour soap right away.

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.

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.

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!

Couture Hotness Fragrance OilCouture Hotness Fragrance Oil– Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Hello, Ladies! Are you ready to make heads turn and jaws drop? I’m assuming you said yes, because who’d say no to drop dead gorgeous. So, why not smell the part? Couture Hotness Fragrance Oil is a scent of feminine power, beauty, and sex appeal with an attractive quality that’s tough to fight. While many may say beauty lies with the perspective of the beholder, it’s pretty tough to deny when you’re this good. Given that your scent is one of the first things to notice and the longest to linger, I’d say the perfect scent is the first step to sexy! While there are a plethora of different choices for your signature scent, this Nature’s Garden rendition of Hot Couture is tough to compete with!

How Do Our Customers Use Couture Hotness Fragrance Oil?

First, lovely homemade soap makers can use this fragrance at no more than 5% to create fantastic smelling products, whether it be by cold process or melt and pour methods. Our cold processed soap results for this fragrance showed that was a perfect pour! There is no acceleration, no ricing, or no separation for soap containing this feminine fragrance. While the bar will discolor to a butterscotch color, it is possible that vanilla white stabilizer may lighten the color, but you will need to test this. Adding this product may produce a lighter or even white bar, depending on the fragrance. However, this stabilizer only counteracts the discoloration caused by vanilla or vanillin. Since there  are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products, the stabilizer will not work exactly the same for all fragrances. Further, other bath at body products, such as bath oils and gels, work great at concentrations of 5% or lower. For coloring, we recommend that you use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you, never use candle dye in any body products.

Next, candle crafters can use a maximum of 10% in their creations using either vegetable wax or paraffin wax. If you’re deciding to color your products, we suggest using three drops of red liquid candle dye for every four pounds of melted wax. Remember that crayons can not function as a sufficient substitute for actual colorant in your candles as they will clog your wick. However, the use of gel wax is not compatible for creating products using this scent.

Finally, many other creations can be made using this scent as well! Fragrance oil room scenters can use up to 50% in potpourri and incense. Also, Lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products are all safe to use to 5% of this fragrance.
