Plus, thyme is a pretty hardy plant that you can grow right at home. This herb prefers to have conditions that are hot and dry to those that are cool and damp. Also, make sure the plant gets a place in full sun. Since thyme grows more grows slowly from the seed, I’d suggest buying a plant that is already started. If you do start your plant from a seed, then you should make sure to give your thyme a month or so to establish itself before cutting. Once your plant is established you can snip a few stems and benefit from any of the thyme uses that you’d like.

Argan oil is a light, non-greasy oil that is perfect for providing the moisture you need without leaving you feeling like a grease ball. Plus, this oil can be useful for reducing the amount of oil your scalp produces. Since the carrier oil is able to balance your oils, using argan oil will actually help you to get your scalp to produce less oils naturally. So, you can bring your production levels down to where you need them.

Also, you can use this nourishing cosmetic oil to improve the health of your nails and the cuticle bed. After removing nail polish, cleaning, and drying your nails, you can apply this lovely oil directly on each of your nails. For each nail, add a drop of oil and rub it into the top, nail bead, and cuticle. The conditioning properties will help to prevent hangnails and lead to healthier future nail growth.

Argan Oil Benefits: What is Argan Oil Made of?

The skin loving argan oil is made by pressing argan nuts, which are inside of a fruit. These trees grow on trees in Morocco. Further, these trees take a long time to start producing fruit and they only grow in this area of the world. Further, the nuts can be hard and difficult to crack. Interestingly, the Tamri goats, which eat these Moroccan fruits, would be used to help Argan Oil producers break down the hard shell of the argan nut. Now, factories can break down the nut without the help of goats, but there are some people still producing Argan Oil in this traditional way. If you want to learn more, then check out this article we found. The Argan Oil Beauty Benefits for Skin, Hair, and Body talks about where argan oil comes from as well as some more benefits of using this cosmetic oil.

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.

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

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?

After your soap is wrapped, you can store it in a cool, dry place for later use.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Any Melt and Pour Soap Recipes with Shea Butter?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Any Melt and Pour Soap Recipes with Shea Butter?

We sure do! If you go to the Shea Butter Melt and Pour Soap page of the website and click on the Recipe tab, you will see all kinds of melt and pour soap recipes. For example, we have the Zebra Print Soap Recipe and the Graffiti Melt and Pour Soap Recipe that both use shea butter mp soap.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: History of Soap

Today, there are all kinds of different types of soap from melt and pour soap recipes to commercially made soaps. However, the first soaps ever made weren’t too fancy. In fact, the first known use of soap was by ancient Babylonians that used animal fats and ashes as their ingredients.

How to Make Soap White


This entry was posted in cold process soap colorant, free soap recipes, handcrafted soap, handmade soap, make your own soap, Natures Garden, soap colorants, soap making supplies, soap supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

How to Make Soap WhiteHow to Make Soap White

Homemade soap making is the perfect way to show off your creativity. While appearance isn’t everything in a bar of soap, it certainly is important. Sometimes the discoloration of your soap bar just doesn’t match the aroma and there may seem like there is nothing you can do to stop it. Or, you may just be trying to get your soap to be pure white, as no discoloration doesn’t mean that you will get a pure white bar of soap. In fact, uncolored and unscented cold process soap is naturally an off white hue. But, there are a few additives that you could use in certain situations to attempt to achieve the perfect white color for your soap bars. All you need to do is learn how to make soap white and we at Natures Garden would like to help you at as much as we possibly can!

How to Make Soap White Soap Making Options

We have three simple options for our lovely soap-makers that desire a whiter bar of soap. While there is no way to prevent discoloration in all cases, there are some options that you have for your soapmaking. First, we have the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is a product that will actually prevent discoloration from fragrance. However, this ingredient is really only good for preventing fragrances with a vanillin content from discoloring. So, this additive will not always work to completely banish discoloration and may not work at all on some fragrances. Next, we have two types of titanium dioxide. While these ingredients are designed to change the appearance of the natural color of soaps. However, these additives will not prevent any fragrance discoloration. This ingredient is simply for turning the off white bars into a pure white hue.

How to Make Soap White Vanilla White Color StabilizerHow to Make Soap White Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

One easy method that you can use to whiten your cold process soaps is to add in our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer! While this ingredient can’t completely whiten all kinds of discoloration, this product can strongly reduce certain types of discoloration. So, it is important to know exactly when to add this product. This ingredient will reduce the discoloration that is caused by vanillin. Also, this product will slow down this ingredient’s ability to oxidize, which would cause browning in the soap. If the fragrance oil contains vanillin or components that will oxidize, then adding this ingredient will absolutely be helpful!

How to Make Soap White Why Use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

As a soap maker, it is important to know how to deal with discoloration. While many great aromas that don’t cause any discoloration, there are some fragrance oils with wonderful scents that just don’t perform exactly how you want. It can be heartbreaking to discover a gorgeous scent that just discolors too much. What is worse is when the discoloration doesn’t pair well with the aroma. This always happens with scents that have heavy vanilla notes. These fragrance oils often end up extremely dark, but smelling like a pure white vanilla dream! However, you can prevent it with Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. So, don’t give up on your favorite vanilla soap scents just yet.

How to Make Soap White Vanilla Fragrance OilsHow to Make Soap White Vanilla Fragrance Oils

While there are definitely some types of discoloration that Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can’t help with, this product is perfect for reducing discoloration from vanillin. This ingredient is what creates the vanilla aroma that we all know and love! This means that this color stabilizing agent is perfect for vanilla fragrances, and any fragrance that has a vanillin content. So, darker shades of soaps that are caused by vanilla fragrance oils can be tackled by this product. Although it is possible for a fragrance oil to have other discoloring agents, the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is great for whitening discoloration due to vanillin. So, you should add this ingredient when the vanillin content is above 1% to prevent discoloration.

How to Make Soap White Oxidation Impact on ColorHow to Make Soap White Oxidation Impact on Color

Over time, certain ingredients in the fragrance oil may begin to oxidize. While this is just a natural reaction some ingredients, like vanillin, have with the air, this could lead to a change in the color of your homemade soaps. Oxidation has the potential to cause a darker color for your soap, so you could potentially have discoloration after the soap has been created. Although Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can’t completely prevent this reaction from occurring, it is perfect if you would like to slow down this natural process. Thus, you can delay this discoloration and, if you use your bars quick enough, may never even have to see it!

How to Make Soap White Impact on ScentHow to Make Soap White Impact on Scent

Since you are attempting to save this fragrance oil for your soap making, you don’t want anything impacting the scent. Luckily, vanilla white color stabilizer can reduce discoloration without negatively impacting the fragrance oil that you enjoy. Although the aroma of this product is strong out of the bottle, the scent is completely unnoticeable in the finished soaps. So, you won’t smell a thing in your soaps! This means you can have the appearance in your soap that you want without sacrificing the integrity of this fragrance oil’s scent.

How to Make Soap White Using the Whitener How to Make Soap White Using the Whitener

Now, you know exactly how Vanilla White Color Stabilizer will work in your soap! All you have left to do is to learn how you can incorporate the color stabilizer into your soap making. While it is not super difficult, you need to know what you are doing to make sure that the ingredient is actually incorporated. So, make sure to add this ingredient to aqueous bases as it is designed to stabilize water based formulas. This is because the vanilla white stabilizer can’t be added to the oils until the saponification process.

How to Make Soap White How We Use Vanilla White Color StabilizerHow to Make Soap White How We Use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

If you’d like to see exactly how this whitener product works, then check out our amazing Peppermint Fluff Soap Recipe! This is a quality soap recipe that required the base of the soap bar to be pure white hue. Otherwise, the design on our soap wouldn’t look like a peppermint! So, the soap had to be red and pure white. However, this soap uses a fragrance with a vanillin content. In fact, the Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil includes a 6% vanillin content. So, we needed something to help with the inevitable discoloration. Otherwise, we would have ended up with a brown and red bar of soap that really wouldn’t look like a peppermint at all. Instead, we used this ingredient and created the soap you see to the left!

How to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Water SolubleHow to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Water Soluble

Also, you have another perfect option for making homemade white soaps. You can use Titanium Dioxide to create a whiter bar of cp soap. While this ingredient won’t reduce discoloration that is caused by some fragrance oils, it is perfect for whitening. If you have a bar with light or no discoloration, then you can add this powdered colorant to create a whiter bar. Instead of the typical off white soap color, the Titanium Dioxide will create a more pure white color in your bars. Thus, you can have decorative soaps with a pure white hue. Also, you will be able to still use your personal cold process soaping recipe.

How to Make Soap White Amount to AddHow to Make Soap White Amount to Add

First, it is very important for you to know how much titanium dioxide that you can add to your homemade soaps. While this whitening powder is perfect for soap making, you don’t want to add too much of this product to your soap. However, not adding enough of this product could leave you with a bar that isn’t as white as you would like your soaps to be. So, we would suggest for you to include no more than a single teaspoon per pound of soap colored. All you need to do is add the right amount of this whitening product to your soaps!

How to Make Soap White Using the Water Soluble Titanium DioxideHow to Make Soap White Using the Water Soluble Titanium Dioxide

Next, you need to learn how this ingredient needs to be used. Since this ingredient is water based, it needs to be added to the lye water solution. This means that you will have to add this white pigment to your whole soap bar. So, the water soluble version of Titanium Dioxide is perfect for coloring an entire bar of cold process soap. Then, you can combine your water and oils perfectly to create a whiter bar of soap. Although you can separate some of this white soap to color with soap dyes, the titanium dioxide won’t impact the color.

How to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Oil DispersibleHow to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible

Alternatively, you can use a different type of Titanium Dioxide to create your soaps. This ingredient is perfect for whitening smaller portions of your cold process soap. This version of Titanium Dioxide will perform similarly to the water soluble version. Thus, both act as a whitening pigment for the uncolored portions of the soap. Again, this ingredient won’t fix any discoloration caused by fragrance oils. This is because this additive is designed to alter the color of natural soaps to a more pure white. The only difference between the Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide and the Water Soluble Titanium Dioxide is how it is incorporated into the soap.

How to Make Soap White Using the Oil Dispersible Titanium DioxideHow to Make Soap White Using the Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide

Now, all you need is to learn how to use this product in your soap making process! Since this ingredient is oil based, you need to add titanium dioxide to the oil portion of your soaps. So, you’ll need to take a bit of your cosmetic oils and mix your powdered pigment together. Then, you will need to mix up your soap batch. Afterwards, separate out the portion of soap that you’d like to be whitened. Then, mix together the separated portion and the titanium dioxide to create the perfect white color for your soap design.

How to Make Soap White How We Use Titanium Dioxide Oil DispersibleHow to Make Soap White How We Use Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible

Finally, take a peek at how we like to use titanium dioxide in our very own soap making recipes. The Sweet Orange Chili Pepper Cold Process Soap Recipe is one example where adding this ingredient is perfect for creating perfect designs. This soap recipe incorporates a perfect in-the-pot swirl with vibrant red, pure white, and gorgeous orange colors. Note that the white portion of this swirl is even whiter than the normal hue of cold process soap. Luckily, this fragrance oil causes no discoloration in homemade soap! This means that adding titanium dioxide is a perfect option for creating a pure white section in your soap.

 

How to Make Soap White Colorant OptionsHow to Make Soap White Colorant Options

Now that you have whiter bars of soap, let’s talk about soap making colorants! You could add some fun colorants to your soaps that include some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Now that you prevented the discoloration, you are able to add any colors that you would like! Also, you are going to need some fun colors to go along with your newly whitened bars of soap. If you would like to explore your soap coloring options, then check out our various Soap Colorants. These would be perfect to add to your newly whitened bars.

Lemon Squares Soap Recipe Clean and Prepare

Before you begin this recipe you may want to clean and prepare both your workspace and the equipment you will be working with for this recipe. Since crafting can take most of your attention, it may be more likely for dirt to find its way into your finish products. So, just clean and wipe everything down before you start.

First, find a workspace that provided you with plenty of room and access to a microwave. So, sanitize the surface you will be working on to prevent anything from getting picked up as you lay down your utensils. Also, make sure to wipe out the microwave you are going to use to make sure nothing falls into your bowls as your heat the soap base. Next, you will want to clean all your equipment you will be using for the recipe. This will allow you to be sure that nothing will get into the melted soap as you mix the ingredients together. In addition, set out your Brownie Bites Silicone Mold and make sure it is wiped out well. Do all of this and your soaps are sure to come out perfectly clean and adorable!

Lemon Squares Soap Recipe Weighing Soap for the First LayerLemon Squares Soap Recipe Weighing Soap for the First Layer

Initially, we are going to create the first layer of our melt and pour soap lemon squares. This will end up being the layer on the top of our soap when we are finished. So, weigh out 270 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into a clean, microwave safe bowl. Now, you are going to melt your weighed out soap in the microwave. Take the bowl and heat your mango butter soap in 30-second increments until all the soap has completely melted. Once all the soap is in a liquid state, you can move on to the next step.

Next, we are going to add the lemon fragrant oil and create the color for our first soap layer. So, grab your bowl of melted Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Now, add 13 grams of Natures Garden’s Lemon Squares Fragrance Oil to your clear, melted soap base. Then, add two drops of the Yelp Yellow Soap Colorant and 1 drop of the Yellow Oxide Soap Colorant to the melted soap mixture. Make sure to mix everything thoroughly to incorporate all of the scent and colorants throughout the soap. After it has been evenly mixed, you can move on to the next step.

Now, you are going to pour this completed soap mixture into the mold to complete your first layer. So, fill each of the 24 cavities about halfway with your soap mixture. Just make sure that you don’t fill the mold cavities too high! Pouring too much into one cavity will prevent you from having a good-sized second layer. Also, you would be more likely to run out of your diamond clear melt and pour soap mixture before you finish filling all the cavities that you need to fill! So, try to keep the mold cavities filled as close to halfway as you possibly can.

Then, you are going to quickly finish off this first layer. After you have poured everything into the mold you are going to lightly spray the tops of your soaps before they start to set up. This is done to release any air bubbles that could be trapped. This air comes from the pouring process. So, grab your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol and give your soap a few good spritzes. Once this is done you will want to wait until this layer is entirely set up before moving on to another step. This will prevent unwanted mixing of layers and you are going to want two separate and straight layers

Next, you will be getting the second soap layer ready. After the first layer has set up completely it is time to start preparing the second layer. Once we pop out the finished soaps, this will become the bottom layer in the finished soaps. So, weigh out 270 grams of the Mango Butter Melt and Pour Soap into a clean, microwave safe bowl. Now, use the microwave oven to heat this soap base in 30-second intervals and stir quickly between each interval. After all the soap is in liquid form, you are ready for the next step of this process.

Now, you are going to be adding the lemon squares fragrance oil and soap colorant to your melted soap base. So, take your bowl of melted mango soap base and add 13 grams of the Lemon Squares Fragrance Oil. Then, you are going to add 1 drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant, 1 drop of the Yellow Oxide Soap Colorant, and a tiny amount of the Brown Oxide Soap Colorant. You can add this tiny amount of Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant with a toothpick.  Simply dip a toothpick into your bottle of brown soap colorant. Then, dip the toothpick into the soap. This will swirl a very tiny amount into your melted soap base. After, mix everything together thoroughly until it is evenly dispersed in your soap mixture.

Next, you are going to take your soap mixture and pour it into each of the cavities of the brownie bites silicone mold. Since your first layer is entirely set up, it is safe to pour this second layer of soap. First, you are going to spray the first layer one more time with the rubbing alcohol. Doing this will help the two layers stick together better and also help prevent the layers from breaking apart later on. After, fill the remaining half of each of the 24 cavities in your mold. After you finish you should have all 24 of the cavities completely filled to the top.

Again, you will be spraying the top of your freshly poured soap in the mold. So, grab your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol. Then, lightly spray the tops all your soaps before they start to set up. Since this removes all the trapped air bubbles, spraying the rubbing alcohol should leave you with smooth soap. After you spray, you will wait a while to allow this layer to completely set up. Later, you will be removing all of your lemon squares from their cavities in the silicone soap mold. Once everything is removed you can move on to the final step!

Finally, you are going to be adding the powdered sugar topping to your finished lemon square soaps! At this point, the second layer you poured should be completely set up and you will remove all your soap from the mold. This will leave you with 24 bright yellow squares that are super cute! Now, each of these square soaps will be topped with the powdered sugar to give a more realistic effect. First, make sure that each lemon square scented soap has the side that has the brighter yellow, which was created with the diamond clear soap, facing up. Otherwise, you could end up with upside down lemon squares! Nobody wants that, so make sure to pay close attention.

Then, take a spoon and scoop some of the powdered sugar. Now, sprinkle this sweet powdered sugar onto the tops of your little soaps. Then, shake off any excess powdered sugar. The sugar should stick to the tops without rubbing alcohol. It seems to stick just like it would on a real lemon square!

Lemon Squares Soap Recipe Using Your Lemon Square Soaps

After your soaps all have their powdered sugar topping put on, they are finished and you are officially done with your soaps. Finally, these little dessert soaps are ready to use! Unlike with cold process soap, there is no cure time. This is because the soap had already been through the saponification process and given time to cure before you purchased the soap. So, your creations are ready to use as soon as they set up! Obviously, you can use your lemon square soaps just like you would a typical soap bar. Since everything, including the powdered sugar, is body safe. So, you can use these soaps as a hand soap or a shower soap. Regardless, you’ll get clean and smell like delicious lemon squares!
