I would like to introduce our new free recipe for our Frankincense and Myrrh Soap! This Christmas soap is made with the thoughts of the three wise men in mind! If you remember the story of the baby Jesus, the three wise men all traveled to see him toting three special gifts. Gold, frankincense, and myrrh. This soap is a gorgeous way to pay homage to that special holiday story!

 

Ingredients:

85 grams Mango Butter

510 grams Palm Oil

510 grams Olive Oil Pomace

510 grams Coconut Oil 76

85 grams Castor Oil

243 grams Lye

6 grams Myrrh Gum Powder

84 grams Frankincense and Myrrh Fragrance Oil

24K Gold Mica Pigment

Diamond Dust Mica Pigment

2 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

2 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

2 drops Orange Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

4 Loaf Silicone Soap Mold

645 grams Distilled Water

Safety Glasses

Safety Gloves

Safety Mask

Crockpot

Mixing Spoons

Mixing Bowls

Scale

Stick Blender

 

Directions:

There are actually 2 parts to this soap, you will start out by preparing the rock portion first. In a bowl, weigh out 34 grams Castor Oil, 204 grams Coconut Oil 76, 204 grams Palm Oil, 34 grams Mango Butter, and 204 grams Olive Oil Pomace. Turn the crockpot on low, and heat all of the oils until they are completely liquid.

While you are waiting for them to melt, weigh out 97 grams of lye and 258 grams of distilled water. Slowly and carefully pour the lye into the water and then stir. Never add water to lye! Then once the oils are melted, add the lye to them in the crockpot.  Use the stick blender to bring the mixture to a pudding consistency. Place the lid on the crockpot and allow to cook.  Make sure to keep stirring the mixture every now and then. Once it has reached the consistency of mashed potatoes, the soap is finished.

When the soap is finished cooking, divide it equally into 4 mixing bowls. Add 2 drops of Orange Oxide Colorant into one bowl, 2 drops of Yellow into one, 2 drops of brown into the third, and do not color the fourth bowl. Then, pour each bowl into a different part of the soap mold and let the soap sit to set up.

After it has set, break the soaps up into pieces and set aside to use later for the rocks.

Now you can start the brown portion of your soap. In the crockpot, melt down 51 grams Mango Butter, 306 grams Olive Oil, 306 grams Coconut Oil 76, 51 grams Castor Oil, and 306 grams Palm Oil.

Prepare your lye water again, (same process as Step 2) using 387 grams distilled water and 146 grams lye. Stir. When the oils are melted, add the lye to the crockpot and stir with the stick blender. This should become about a pudding consistency.

Let it sit for about 15 minutes and then add your 6 grams of Myrrh Gum Powder and mix it again. Allow your soap to finish until it is again a mashed potato consistency, add 84 grams Frankincense and Myrrh Fragrance Oil, and mix together.

Now using the 4 loaf mold, put a layer of soap into the bottom of 3 of the different parts of the loaf. Then using the rocks from earlier, place the rocks throughout that layer, pushing them down slightly to prevent air pockets. Put another layer on top and keep repeating the process until you fill the mold.

Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin Fragrance– This fragrance oil by Natures Garden was inspired by one of our favorite movies of all times – “ELF”.  At one point in the movie, Buddy mentions that he feels like a “Cotton headed ninny muggin”; AKA…an ELF Airhead.  This made us think, “What would a cotton headed ninny muggin smell like?”  Cotton headed ninny muggin fragrance oil begins with sweet, buttery, creamy coconut and vanilla frosting; leading to middle notes of powdery heliotrope and spicy hints; and sits on a powerful vanilla base.

Elf Sweat Fragrance– This fragrance oil by Natures Garden was inspired by Santa’s elves.  Magical, happy, and hard-working…that would describe the personalities of Santa’s elves!  Are you ready to smell a fragrance that embraces these personality traits?  Elf sweat fragrance is a bubbly, magical blend of candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup, with effervescent spicy soda pop bubbles to provide a unique, magical top note.  Creativity and uniqueness like you’ve never experienced!

Mrs. Claus Cookies Fragrance– This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of freshly baked sugar cookies with buttercream frosting, with fresh notes of vanilla extract.  Possibly the best cookie fragrance we have ever smelled!  Smells similar to Vanilla Bean Noel.

Reindeer Poo Fragrance– This holiday season, have fun, laugh a little, and embrace a good sense of humor.  That is what we did when creating Natures Garden’s Reindeer Poo fragrance oil!  This fragrance will lift your holiday spirits, and add a little magic to your life!  Reindeer Poo begins with top notes of apples and pears; followed by middle notes of eucalyptus, pine, and geranium; and well-balanced with base notes of vanilla, cedarwood, and patchouli.  We believe that the bubbly top notes coincide with the feeling children have when they see Santa’s reindeer magically flying through the sky.

Snowman Balls Fragrance– This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a provocative, racey new approach to preventing the winter time blues.  A FUN fragrance, that is sure to bring smiles to the faces of many sad people!  Let’s face it, you could never have a snowman without first starting with snowballs. Snowman balls fragrance is a sexy, spicy blend of peppercorns, nutmeg, and fresh clove; embodied with notes of elderberries, blackberries, plums, and fresh green oakmoss; with magical, effervescent top notes of carbonated fizzy pop and just a hint of cool mint.
