Whipped Soap BaseWhipped Soap Recipes

Have you created any whipped soap recipes?  If you haven’t, would you like to add a new product to your line of handcrafted soaps?  Often, customers ask how whipped soap is made.  The truth is it is actually very simple when using a base such as the whipped soap base.  Below, we will talk about whipped soap and how you can use it your handmade bath and body products.  In fact, not only can the whipped soap be used alone, it can also be used to create foaming scrubs.  Another use for the whipped soap is soap frosting when creating melt and pour soap.  So, read on to find some fun and creative ways to use whipped soap.

Whipped Soap Recipes: Creating Body Frostings

Let’s start by talking about creating body frostings.  Body frostings are simple to create and can be used just like soap.  However, they have the addition of powdered sugar.  We are often asked why the powdered sugar is added to the body frosting.  Well, the powdered sugar will help to thicken the base just slightly so that it has more of a frosting consistency.  Read on to find out the different ways that we have created body frostings.

Foaming Body Frosting Recipe

Foaming Body Frosting RecipeFirst, we have the foaming body frosting recipe.  This soap recipe is a great way to use the whipped soap base from Natures Garden.  This particular soap frosting uses a body safe fragrance oil along with the FUN Soap Colorants to give the soap a little color.  Finally, we topped the whipped soap with decorative sprinkles for a fun twist and an added bonus.

Creme Brulee Whipped Soap Recipe

Creme Brulee Body Frosting RecipeNow, we have the Creme Brulee Whipped Soap Recipe.  This whipped soap is scented with the Creme Brulee Fragrance Oil.  In addition, we added powdered sugar to thicken the soap slightly and give it a gentle exfoliation.  We also topped this soap with brown sugar and a blackberry embed to give it an adorable finishing touch.  This soap embed is created with the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  It also uses the deep purple FUN Soap Colorant along with the black oxide FUN Soap Colorant to give the soap embed a dark purple color.

Chocolate Foaming Body Frosting Recipe

Chocolate Foaming Body Frosting RecipeThe Chocolate Foaming Body Frosting Recipe uses Creamy Chocolate Cupcake Fragrance Oil.  This fragrance begins with creamy top notes of bittersweet chocolate and buttercream.  Then, it is followed by warm middle notes of corn syrup and amaretto.  Finally, it is well rounded with base notes of vanilla sugar, malt, dark cocoa, and espresso powder.  In addition, this body frosting uses organic cocoa powder to give the whipped soap a natural chocolate color.

Mango Tangerine Bath Icing Recipe

Mango Tangerine Bath Icing RecipeNext, we have the Mango Tangerine Bath Icing.  This whipped soap recipe is fabulous on its own.  However, when you factor in the Mango Tangerine Fragrance Oil, it takes it over the top.  This strong mango tangerine scent is the as a tropical blend of mango mixed with zesty clementines and red raspberries blended with sweet vanilla.

Juicy Lemon Foaming Bath Whip Recipe

Juicy Lemon Foaming Bath Whip RecipeAnother great way to make the whipped soap is the Juicy Lemon Foaming Bath Whip Recipe.  This soap making recipe uses the whipped soap base to create a lemon scented bath soap.  This whipped soap uses Juicy Lemon Fragrance Oil.  Juicy Lemon fragrance oil is the tart aroma of lemon.  The scent has a distinct lemon citron top note, a lilac nuance and lemon rind middle note, finishing with a gingery, woody base note.  In addition, we have added powdered sugar which will slightly thicken the base and give a very gentle exfoliation.

Whipped Soap Recipes: Shaving Cream Recipes

Another wonderful way to use the whipped soap base is in shaving cream recipes.  To create these type of recipes, you simply add a couple of ingredients to the base.  First, you want to add a clay.  Cosmetic clay will add glide to the finished product.  So, you can see why this is the perfect type of additive for shaving soap.  In addition, we have added cosmetic butter to each one.  Whether it be shea, cocoa, or mango butter, it really helps to give the shaving cream extra moisturizing power.

Whipped Shaving Cream Recipe

whipped shaving soapNext, we have the whipped shaving cream recipe.  We have added bentonite clay to this recipe to help pull impurities from the skin.  In addition, this cosmetic clay will give the whipped soap a fabulous glide that is perfect for shaving.  We have also added mango butter to the shaving soap for its moisturizing properties.  We scented this whipped shaving soap with Knock Out Fragrance Oil.  Knock out Fragrance Oil is a spicy, rich, warm woody fragrance with bright notes of lime, bergamot, and pineapple enhanced with notes of rose, muguet lily, and jasmine. These notes are sitting on masculine base notes of green moss, dark musk, cedar, sandalwood, and amber.  It is a true knock out!

Whipped Rose Clay Shaving Cream Recipe

Whipped Rose Clay Shaving Soap RecipeAnother fabulous recipe using the whipped soap base is the whipped rose clay shaving cream recipe.  This whipped soap recipe uses rose clay to give the shaving soap a wonderful glide.  In addition, rose clay is perfect for those with sensitive skin since it helps reduce irritation and help with circulation.  Also, this soap has the addition of shea butter to truly pamper your skin.  It is scented with Strike a Pose Fragrance Oil to get your legs runway ready.  Finally, the rose clay gives this whipped shaving soap a gorgeous pink color!

Whipped Soap Recipes: Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipes

Next, the whipped soap recipe can be formulated to create a foaming sugar scrub.  A foaming sugar scrub is created simply by adding sugar to the base.  So, with the addition of granulated white sugar or brown sugar, you can create a quick product that will leave your skin feeling clean, soft, and exfoliated.  You can also add salt to create to the base to create a scrub with extra exfoliating power.

Toffee Crunch Latte Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Toffee Crunch Latte Foaming Sugar Scrub RecipeNow, we have the Toffee Crunch Latte Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipe.  This recipe uses powdered sugar and brown sugar.  So, this whipped soap is a gentle scrubbing soap the smells amazing.  In fact, this whipped soap is scented with Natures Garden’s Cafe Caramel Fragrance Oil.  This caramel scent is the aroma of fresh-brewed cappuccino.  So, the scent is filled with top notes of fresh brewed coffee and middle notes of heavy cream.  Finally, the scent is finished with sweet and sugary caramel.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub RecipeNext, we have the Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe. This whipped soap recipe is scented with Natures Garden’s Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.  In addition, this chocolate whipped soap uses Epsom salt to give the soap scrubbing qualities.  Finally, it has organic cocoa powder added.  This scent is blended with semi-sweet chocolate chips and laced with crunchy toffee bits to create this decadent treat.  Vanilla creme and butterscotch syrup create a luscious undertone, while hints of almond and coconut complete the yummy blend.

Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Foaming Sugar Scrub RecipeThis foaming sugar scrub recipe uses white sugar to give the scrub a wonderful exfoliation.  In addition, this scrub is scented with Natures Garden’s Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil.  The Yummy Gummy scent is a fruit medley of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and tree ripe peaches squeezed with fresh lemons and essential oil of tangerine warmed by soft woods.

 

Whipped Soap Recipes: Soap Frosting Recipes

Now, I know what you are thinking, didn’t we already talk about body frosting?  Is this a typo?  The answer is no.  With the whipped soap base you can create a soap frosting that can be used to top your melt and pour soap or, in one case below, to create a rolled soap.  While all of the other whipped soap recipes that we have talked about can be simply placed in jars, these are a little different.  When the whipped soap is mixed with melt and pour soap, it can actually be used to top things like soap cupcakes.  In addition, it will setup and harden while still maintaining a frosting look.  When creating this type of recipe, we also add vegetable glycerin so that it still maintains some pliability.

Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soap Recipe

Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soap RecipeFirst, we have the Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soap Recipe.  This recipe is simply a cupcake that has been topped with the soap frosting that we talked about.  It uses Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap Base from Natures Garden.  In addition, we have added an mp Peeps bunny to the top and sprinkles to give the soap a decorative touch.  To be completely honest, this lemon scented soap is my absolute favorite.

 

Chocolate Orchid Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

Chocolate Orchid Melt and Pour Soap RecipeAnother way to use soap frosting is to top a soap loaf like we did in the Chocolate Orchid Melt and Pour Soap Recipe.  This soap loaf is topped with fluffy soap frosting.  It is also scented with the Chocolate Orchid Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  So, it smells AMAZING!  In addition, it has brown swirls embedded throughout and purple soap confetti to give it a festive look and feel.  Finally, it was topped with the soap frosting and brown and purple soap confetti was added to the top.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap Recipe

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap RecipeFinally, we have the Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap Recipe.  This soap recipe can be difficult for beginners.  So, you definitely want to have some experience working with whipped soap recipes before attempting this soap recipe.  It is scented with Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil.  It was inspired by this cake roll recipe from Spend With Pennies.  So, the chocolate colored portion of the roll was created with melt and pour soap.  We added vegetable glycerin to the mp soap to give it flexibility.  Then, we created pink soap frosting and placed it on top.  Once we had the soap frosting in place, we rolled the soap just like you would roll a pumpkin roll.  We topped the soap with the whipped soap frosting, using rubbing alcohol to help hold everything in place.  Finally, we drizzled the soap with white mp soap.

Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap RecipeFinally, we have the Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe.  Of course, we scented this mp soap recipe with Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  However, this soap recipe uses the whipped soap base to create little soap sandwiches that look like macaroons.  We used the whipped soap base to create a soap frosting and used the soap frosting as our cookie filling.

 

We hope that you have enjoyed learning about these whipped soap base recipes.  Perhaps you found a new way to use the base or a new craft recipe to try.  We would love to see how you have used the whipped soap base.  Tag us in your project pictures on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.  You can also share your picture on our Facebook page.  We absolutely love hearing from our customers and seeing your creations!

Before creating your homemade soap recipe, you are going to want to make a few preparations. First, you will need to make sure that the equipment for this recipe is clean and ready to use. So, gather your soap making equipment and wash them to ensure that they are clean. Also, you are going to want to clean up a work space. So, clear a space that you can use to make homemade soap. This will ensure that you have an easier and more enjoyable experience. Also, It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, a face mask, safety glasses, and a hair net while preparing this recipe to protect yourself while making soap. Further, you may want to prepare a bottle of vinegar to spray in case of skin contact with lye.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: First Time Making CP Soap?

If you have never made cold process soap before, then we would recommend that you learn a bit about the process before jumping in. You can click here for a Basic CP Soap Making Class. Also, you will want to be familiar with cp soap safety before working on a cold process soap recipe. So, please, become familiar with our Soap Making Safety Class. Once you know the basics of making soap from scratch and are able to be safe during the process, you are ready to create your soap recipe!

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Lye SolutionKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Lye Solution

First, you are going to want to prepare the lye solution for your soap recipe. Of course, you will need to prepare this solution in a well ventilated area. Also, you will need to wear a face mask and gloves. Now, measure out 516 grams of the Water and 193 grams of the Lye- Sodium Hydroxide in separate containers. Now, SLOWLY add the lye to the water. Remember, always add the lye to the water and never the reverse. You will want to carefully stir your water as you add the lye. Once all the lye has been added to the water you will need to wait for the solution to cool.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap OilsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap Oils

While the lye solution is cooling, you can begin to prepare your cosmetic oils. So, measure 272 grams of the Sunflower Oil, 299 grams of the Coconut Oil 76, 163 grams of the Cocoa Butter, 136 grams of the Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 68 grams of the Argan Oil, 95 grams of the Rice Bran Oil, 231 grams of the Shea Butter, and 95 grams of the Fractionated Coconut Oil. Add these cosmetic oils to a microwave safe bowl and use small increments to melt these oils down. If your oil mixture cools too quickly, you can reheat to bring your temperatures closer to each other.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap ColorantsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap Colorants

While you are waiting for your mixtures to be at the right temperature, you can get your soap colorants ready. So, you will want to get your four small bowls. Then, use the weights listed above to add the colorants to the bowls for the Pink Colorant, Light Green Colorant, Dark Green Colorant, and the White Colorant. After, you can set these bowls aside for a later step.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Combining the Lye and Cosmetic OilsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Combining the Lye and Cosmetic Oils

Once the temperature for your lye solution and cosmetic oils is around 100 degrees Fahrenheit to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you are ready to combine them. Then, you are going to need to use a stick blender to mix these two mixtures together. Of course, you will need to make sure that you continue mixing until you hit trace to make sure your soaping ingredients are fully emulsified. After this blend of cosmetic oils and lye solution hits trace, you are ready to add the fragrance oil. 

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Kiwi Watermelon Fragrance OilKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Kiwi Watermelon Fragrance Oil

Now, you are ready to add 103 grams of Kiwi Watermelon Fragrance Oil to your cosmetic mixture. This scrumptious fragrance oil begins with juicy notes of watermelon and grapefruit. These scents are followed by middle notes of strawberry, green melon, and white lily. Finally, these aromas are sitting on base notes of ozone, Balsamic vanilla, and fresh woods. After adding this scrumptious soap scent, you will need to stick blend to fully incorporate the scent.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Dividing the Uncolored Soap MixtureKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Dividing the Uncolored Soap Mixture

You are going to separate the uncolored portion of the mixture into two halves. Half of this batch will be swirled with the other colored soap portions.  So, you will want to get a large mixing bowl and add 425 grams of this mixture into another bowl. The remaining portion of the uncolored soap batch will be used to top your soap in a later step. So, you can set this bowl aside for now.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Cosmetic ColorantsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Cosmetic Colorants

Next, you are going to add the soap colorants to your soap batter. So, you are going to need to get three more small mixing bowls. You will need to add about 425 grams of your scented soap mixture to each of the bowls. Now, you will have your four portions of soap ready to color! So, you will add each one of your small bowls of portioned colorant to each one of your mixing bowls. Then, you can use the stick blender to incorporate the colorant. You will clean the stick blender clean before mixing the next color.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Mixing Your Colored SoapKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Mixing Your Colored Soap

Now, you will need to grab your deep mixing bowl of 425 grams of the white soap. Next, you will need to add the Pink Colorant, Light Green Colorant, and Dark Green Colorant to the white soap in your deep mixing bowl. So, start with the pink soap mixture. You will want to pour small amounts of the soap directly on top of the white soap in various places. The, repeat this pour with each of the green soap portions. Once you are finished, the bowl of soap in front of you will look a bit like a color wheel.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Swirl and Pour the SoapKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Swirl and Pour the Soap

Now that all your colored soap portions are added to this deep mixing bowl, you are going to swirl the colors together and pour the mixture into your soap mold. You will want to make sure that you don’t mix too much, as you want to keep the separate colors. So, you may want to only use one circular swirl. After, you are ready to pour the mixture into the loaf soap mold.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Topping to Your CP SoapKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Topping to Your CP Soap

Lastly, you are going to add the top to your soap loaf. You will need to wait for this white soap portion to cool and thicken before you can add it to your soap. Once your white soap is ready to use, you are going to use your spatula to add this whipped soap to the top of your soap. After you have this uncolored soap added to your soap loaf, you can use your spatula to create peaks and texture. You will not need too much of either the mica dust or the herb. We used less than a gram of each on our soap.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Removing Soap from the MoldKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Removing Soap from the Mold

After 12-48 hours you are ready to remove your soap from the loaf mold. Gently remove the soap from the silicone soap mold. Once you have your finished soap mold removed, you will be ready to add the finishing touches, cut your bars, and wait for the soap to cure.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Finishing TouchesKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Finishing Touches

Once the cold process soap has been removed from the mold, you are ready to add the final few touches to your soap recipe. First, you can sprinkle of diamond dust mica on to the top of your soap. Also, you can sprinkle on some whole poppy seeds onto the top of this soap loaf. This wholesale cosmetic herb was included to resemble kiwi seeds.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Slicing Your Soap LoafKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Slicing Your Soap Loaf

Now, you will want to cut your soap loaf into individual bars. You will want to cut your soap before you let your soap cure. Otherwise, your soap bars may be more likely to become too brittle and flake away as you cut. Now, you will want to set up your soap bars in a place where they can cure.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Using Your Finished CP Soap

Of course, you will need to wait for your cold process soap to cure before you can use your homemade soap bars. This can take from 2 and 8 weeks to completely cure. After your soap bars have set up, your soap is ready to use! You can use your soap packaging supplies to store some of your soap bars. Plus, your cp soap bars will be ready to use as well.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Kiwi Watermelon Cake

The Paleo Watermelon Cake from Paleo Cupboard uses sweet juicy fruit and a scrumptious coconut whipped cream to make a fun, refreshing way to serve fruit at a party!

NG Aqua di Gio Type Fragrance OilBest Scents for Fathers Day: NG Aqua di Gio Type Fragrance Oil

First, we have my personal favorite masculine scent.  NG Aqua di Gio Type Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is amazing in just about anything.  It soaps wonderfully and stays nice and strong.  After testing numerous versions of this designer duplication fragrance oil, we finally found the one.  If you have not taken the opportunity to try this unbelievably sexy scent, here is the description:  A sexy, fresh, aquatic aroma with bergamot, neroli, and tangerine; flowing into mid notes of rosemary, jasmine, and persimmon; all sitting on a woodsy base note of essential oil of patchouli.

Beer Fragrance OilBest Scents for Fathers Day:  Beer Fragrance Oil

Next on our list of scents for Father’s Day is Beer Fragrance Oil.  Throughout the history of Natures Garden, this fragrance oil was probably the most difficult scent for our perfumist to create.  There were actually a total of 4 different perfumists who attempted to create a good beer scent for us.  We did not want a stale-smelling beer scent, and we did not want a beer scent that had floral notes; like so many we have tested.  In this truly unique fragrance, the perfumist combined the aroma of malt liquor straight from the tap, and gave it a fruity twist.  He creatively combined notes of malt liquor and hops with fruity notes of strawberry, pineapple, apple, and raspberry.  CHEERS!!!  Of course, this is a Natures Garden original scent.
