Different Types of Leaves

The fun aspect of this recipe is that there are a lot of different types of leaves that you can choose from. I’m going to highlight some different types of common leaves. This should help you decide which leaves you’d want to use for this recipe. Just know that some leaves can come in rounded shapes, pointy shapes, or even very narrow shapes. Depending on where you live can affect your access to different types of leaves. Outlined below are some more common leaves that you can find almost anywhere.

Options for Different Types of Leaves

For a larger, more full leaf you could decide to go with the Maple leaf which will give you almost a star shaped leaf. If you wanted a smooth, rounded leaf you could also use a Southern Magnolia. For a smaller, more rounded leaf, the Hickory might be what you are looking for. Another pretty leave that you can use is the Red Maple. The Red Maple leaf has three, rigid triangular points on its end that are unique to the shape of the leaf. There are many more shapes and sizes that you can use, it’s up to you to decide what you want.

Fall Leaves MP Soap Recipe: Ingredient Spotlight

Before we begin creating the Fall Leaves MP Soap Recipe, Let’s take a closer look at some of the ingredients that we will be using.

Maple Whiskey Toddy Fragrance OilFeaturing Maple Whiskey Toddy Fragrance Oil

Maple Whiskey Toddy is commonly used as a warm, after dinner drink that is mostly enjoyed in the cooler months of fall. This warm beverage first entices the user with notes of maple and rum, which is then followed by a smooth vanilla base and buttery caramelized sugar. This fragrance oil can be used to create handcrafted soap. In addition to soap, when used in candle making, this fragrance will leave a nice, strong aroma for your home. This fragrance can be used in candle waxes, potpourri, bath oils, lotions, and cleaning products as well. The possibilities are endless! Use this maple fragrance oil to bring the warm sensations of fall into your home.

Top Notes:  Vanilla Essence, Lemon Peel, Chilled Whiskey Accord
Mid Notes: Amber Blooms, Vermont Maple Syrup Accord, Damask Rose
Base Notes: White Tonka Beans, Frosted Musk, White Cedarwood

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapUses for Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap from Natures Garden Soap Making Supplies has a high moisturizing content and is great for lathering qualities in any homemade soap recipe. The higher the amount of lather in the soap, the more suds it will create as you use it. This soap base is very fun to use in recipes where you want to bring out any vibrant colors in your soap.

 

Vanilla White Color StabilizerUses for Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

There are a lot of different aqueous bases that tend to have color stability problems from vanillin and other aromatic ingredients. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can be used in any soap making or bath products that you create for keeping the original true color in your creation.

Gathering the LeavesGathering the Leaves

The first step is to gather leaves. Some good places to gather them include the local park, your backyard, or in a forest.  We used different types and sizes of leaves for making this recipe. We collected around 30 leaves. Regardless of this number, we were still able to reuse some of the leaves a few times. The size of the leaves will impact how much this recipe will yield. Using larger leaves will produce a smaller amount of Fall Leaves when making this Nature’s Garden soap recipe.  After collecting the leaves, place them on a wax paper lined pan. Putting the leaves on the wax paper will ensure that they peel off easier. In addition, it will keep your work area clean. This will guarantee the best result with your Fall Leaves Soap Recipe.

Melting the Melt and Pour SoapMelting the Melt and Pour Soap

This next step to take is to prepare your soap base for melting. Use your soap cutter to cut and weigh 40 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Cutting the soap into smaller chunks will make the process of melting the soap easier. Next, take the soap and place it in a microwave safe bowl or container. Microwave the chunks of soap. Depending on your microwave, it can take less than 15 seconds to melt the soap. The soap needs to be melted completely, otherwise; your soap won’t look as smooth as it could look.  

Coloring the MP SoapColoring the MP Soap

After the soap is completely melted, the next step is coloring the MP soap base. The fun part about this recipe is that you can add any color to the soap base and layer on any color onto the leaf. You can set up multiple bowls, all with 40 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Then, once you are finished painting your leaves with that color, you can start this process over and create another color of soap. We don’t recommend creating all of your colors at once because the soap will setup too quickly if you create more than one at a time.

Different Types of Color Combinations

There are many different color combinations that are available to you in this recipe. So, when creating this recipe, we found that the first few layers will create a translucent look. Once we added about four layers it created a solid leaf that you could not see through.  So, we used this to our advantage. For example, if you add a layer of red oxide colored soap and a second layer of the Kelly green, then you can get a leaf a beautiful red- green combo. Another color combination is Yellow with the Kelly Green which will give you a vibrant yellow-green color. You can also try the Orange Oxide with the Red Oxide colorant to give you a bright red-orange colored leaf that will stand out from the rest of the colors. There are a lot of other color combinations that you can experiment with.

Adding the Fragrance Oil to the SoapAdding the Fragrance Oil to the Soap

The next step is to add your fragrance to the mixed soap base. You want to add 2 grams of the Maple Whiskey Toddy Fragrance Oil. Then add 2 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Fragrance oil with a vanillin content can cause discoloration in finished soap. The reason it does this is because fragrance oil will oxidize over time. To keep our mixture true to its color, we add the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to make sure we keep the original color we had in the bowl.  After adding the fragrance to the mixture, stir it thoroughly with the mixing spoons. 

Painting the Fall Leaf MP SoapPainting the Fall Leaf MP Soap

Take the paintbrush and paint each one of the leaves. You don’t want to apply too thick of a coat to make sure that you have enough of a soap base for all of the leaves.  After each leaf has been painted, spray it with rubbing alcohol and let it setup. After it has setup, begin spraying each leaf with the alcohol, then apply a second coat to it. The second coat doesn’t have to be the same color. You can layer whichever color you think would look the best. Keep repeating this process until you achieve 4 coats, or whichever thickness you desire. You should also know that with less layers, you will have more transparency. We did create some in this manner to give us a variety of leaves with different looks.

Removing the Soap from the LeavesRemoving the Soap from the Leaves

When the soap has finished setting up, you want to remove the soap from the leaf. To do this, you want to make sure to carefully peel away one end of the leaf, and slowly make your way across the leaf. Keep slowly peeling away the entire leaf as you don’t want it to break or crumble on you. After the soap portion of the leaf has been removed, it is ready to use!

Ways to Decorate your Home with These LeavesWays to Decorate your Home with These Leaves
