Before we get started, it is important that you always clean and sanitize your work area and all of the packaging materials you will be using. You do not want soap making supplies to mix together from past creations, and you want to be extra careful with everything when using lye. We would also suggest that you wear safety glasses, gloves, a face mask, and protective clothing.

You can check out our Basic CP Soap Making Class to become familiar with this process before hand. We would also advise that you read about our Soap Making Safety Class before attempting to make any cold process soap if you have not made it before. Taking the proper precautions when making soap is a must.

Cold Process Soap

Cold process soap is made from the chemical reaction that happens when you mix together water, oils, and lye. As you may have heard before, this type of soap has no element of heat added to it when forming all of your soap creations. This is the main difference between cold process soap and hot process soap. Since there is no heat added, the curing time is much longer than it would take for hot process soap to cure. One benefit of cold process soap recipes is that your overall finished product will look nicer and more pristine. It may take longer to have the soap completed and ready to use, but it is worth the wait for an awesome end result! This recipe will provide you with three pounds of soap. Before we move on to making the cold process soap, it is important that we understand what goes into it.

Soap Making SuppliesSoap Making Supplies: Some of the Ingredients We Will Be Using

Before we begin creating the reindeer poo cold process soap recipe, let’s take a closer look at some of the ingredients that we will be working with.

Reindeer Poo Fragrance OilReindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

This Christmas season, laugh, have fun, and embrace a good sense of humor.  When creating Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil, Natures Garden did just that!  This holiday fragrance will lift your spirits, and add a little magic to your life!  This scent starts with top notes of apples and pears. Then, those top notes are followed by middle notes of eucalyptus, pine, and geranium. Finally, it is balanced with bottom notes of patchouli, vanilla, and cedarwood. Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil is both a Natures Garden original and a best selling fragrance oil!

FUN Soap ColroantsFUN Soap Colorants

The FUN Soap Colorants from Natures Garden are perfect for soap making. These colorants are pigments dispersed in vegetable glycerin. They don’t morph in cp soap. They are great for soap making because they allow you to create beautiful vibrant colors that will hold up to the saponification process.

Sodium Hydroxide LyeSodium Hydroxide Lye
The first step in our recipe is to prepare the lye solution. Before doing so, I would like to get the chance to educate you about lye. Lye is used in all kinds of soap, and you can not make soap without it! Sodium Hydroxide is the chemical name for lye. Lye is a necessity for making soap because it is an emulsifier, while soap is an emulsion. Soap is made up of different butters, oils, and water. Using basic chemistry, we know that water and oil do not mix with each other. In order to get them to mix, we need to add an emulsifier to it. Lye allows the butters, oils, and water that are needed to create soap to combine together, which otherwise would not be possible without this chemical reaction. Another type of soap to make is melt and pour. This is made differently than cold process soap, and the main difference between them is that melt and pour soap has already previously undergone the chemical reaction with lye. Therefore, even though you are not working directly with lye, your soap base was still created using it. 

Preparing the Lye SolutionPreparing the Lye Solution

To prepare the lye solution, measure out 126 grams of Lye and 344 grams of distilled water. Slowly and in intervals, add the water to the lye solution. Never add water to Lye, as it can create a volcanic effect. With each interval, add a small amount of lye and stir slowly until it dissolves. Allow the Lye to completely dissolve and to cool to room temperature before moving on. At this point,
 add 18 grams of sodium lactate to your cooled lye solution. 

Preparing the Soaping OilsPreparing the Soaping Oils

Now, we can take the time to prepare the soaping oils that we will use in this recipe. Begin by weighing out 136 grams of Palm Oil, 226 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 181 grams of Sunflower Oil, 90 grams of Castor Oil, 90 grams of Grapeseed Oil, and 181 grams of Mango Butter. Melt all of these ingredients together in a bowl. After combining and melting all of these oils together, allow them to cool to room temperature just like with the lye solution. Once they are cooled down, we can move onto the next step.

Combining the Oils and LyeCombining the Soaping Oils and the Lye Solution

After both the lye solution and the soaping oils have completely cooled down to around 110 degrees Fahrenheit, combine them together into one bowl. Add the lye solution to the soaping oils. Using a stick blender, stir the two together and to create an emulsification. Next, incorporate the Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil along with the vanilla white color stabilizer. Use the stick blender once again to blend all ingredients together.

Blending the Colorant into the Soap BatterAdding the FUN Soap Colorants

For the next step, we are going to divide the soap batter we have just mixed into three bowls with portions that are all of equal size. We will be making a white soap, a green soap, and a red soap to mix for this recipe. To the first bowl, which will be our white soap, add 7 grams of titanium dioxide mixed with a small amount of your soaping oils. Use the stick blender again to mix together and leave that bowl alone for now. To the second bowl, just add 4 grams of the neon green colorant and 2 grams of the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant, then stick blend. To the third and final bowl, add the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant colorant and stick blend as well so that the color is fully incorporated.

Incorporating the Batters TogetherIncorporating the Batters Together

Now, we are going to pull an empty bowl for the next part. Beginning with the red soap batter you have created, drop several “plops” into it in a clockwise motion. Keep dropping these in different sections around the bowl until all of the red soap batter has been used. You are going to repeat this same process with the green batter, by placing it in different areas around the bowl than you did for the red batter. Lastly, repeat this step for the white soap batter. Place a spatula into the bowl and move it around in a circular motion throughout the bowl to create swirls. Once you are happy with your swirls, allow the soap batter to thicken.

Putting Your Soap Batter Into a Piping BagPutting Your Soap Batter Into a Piping Bag

Once your soap batter has reached a thick consistency that is similar to frosting, put it into a piping bag that has a rounded tip. These are just like the bags and tips you would use when applying frosting or icing onto cupcakes and other baked goods. This method is necessary to create the “poo” shape we want and to form your final product. If you do not have a decorating bag, you can use a gallon sized Ziploc bag.  You will just need to cut the corner and place the decorating in that corner.

The Finished Product!Your Finished Product!

Using the piping bag filled with the swirled and colorful soap batter, pipe it out onto a silicone mat as if you were frosting cupcakes. This motion will create the poop shape that you want for this creation! Piping this out will bring together the scent of the Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil with a life like form of colorful reindeer poo!

Cleaning Up the Work Station

After you have finished with this Reindeer Poo Cold Process Soap recipe, it is time to clean the work station. We wanted to give you some tips here because you were working with lye and it is important to be safe with the clean up process, just as it was for every step before hand. When your project is all said and done, you will need to wash all of the materials you used like you normally would. However, there may be residue left over from un-reacted lye. Since vinegar is acidic, it will take care of and neutralize the un-reacted lye on these surfaces so that the next time your materials will be ready to go! Once you have wiped everything down well with the vinegar, it will be safe to wash the materials with soap and water.

We hope that you have learned a lot about this method of soap making and all of the proper precautions to take. We hope it was a lot of fun creating this Reindeer Poo Cold Process Soap recipe!

Soap Making Preparations

Prior to begin the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project, you will want to prepare your work area.  First get all of your utensils, soap making supplies, and soap making ingredients ready and in your clean and clutter-free work area.  Then, fill a bottle with vinegar.  The vinegar can be used during soap making and clean up to neutralize lye.  If you have not made cold process soap before, you will want to learn about the process and safety precautions that should be taken during the soap making process.  So, click here for Natures Garden’s Basic CP Soap Making Class. Also, you will need to become familiar with our Soap Making Safety Class.

Prepare the Lye Solution for the CP Soap RecipePrepare the Lye Solution for the CP Soap Recipe

At this time, you should prepare your lye solution.  So, weigh out your distilled water.  Next, add the lye to the water slowly.  Stir as you add the lye.  Allow the lye solution to cool to room temperature.  Then, add the sodium lactate.  Sodium lactate will help harden the bars of soap.  This will also help when it comes time to remove your soap from the mold.  However, the sodium lactate is optional.

Prepare the Oils for the Rosewood and Musk Soap Prepare the Oils for the Rosewood and Musk Soap

It will take some time for the lye solution to come to room temperature.  However, you can go ahead and weigh out your soaping oils while you are waiting.  Once you have weighed out your soaping oils, it is time to melt them.  Once the oils are melted, you will also need to wait for your oils to come to room temperature.

Prepare the Colorants
Prepare the Colorants

So, now that you have both your lye solution and soaping oils cooling, you can prepare your soap colorants.  For this recipe, we will need three colorants in total, pink, brown, and white.  We will prepare the white and the brown colorants at this time.

Prepare the Brown ColorantPrepare the Brown Colorant

In order to create a brown color in our cold process soap, we will use cocoa powder.  So, weigh out your cocoa powder in a small dish.  Then, add a small amount of your soaping oils and mix.  It is okay if the oils are still warm when they are added to the cocoa powder.  By dispersing the cocoa powder in the soaping oils prior to adding them, they will mix more easily and evenly when we add it to the soap batter.

Prepare the White ColorantPrepare the White Colorant

Next, we will create a white colorant for our soap batter using Titanium Dioxide.  So, go ahead and weigh out your titanium dioxide in a small bowl.  We will then, once again, add a small amount of the soaping oils to the powder.  Once you have created both colorants, simply place them to the side until they are needed.

Prepare the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil
Prepare the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil

At this time, we will prepare the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil.  Weigh out the fragrance oil in a small bowl.  Then, place it of to the side where it will be undisturbed until we need it.

Rosewood Musk Fragrance OilWhat Does Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies is the aroma of fresh cut rosewood and warm musk that blend together to create a clean, peppery scent.  The aroma begins with top notes of bergamot, tea, orange, and lemon.  Then, at the heart of rosewood musk, you will find middle notes of pepper and ginger.  This musk scent finishes with lingering notes of guicawood, vetiver, rosewood, and cedarwood.

Blend Your Soaping Oils and Lye SolutionBlend Your Soaping Oils and Lye Solution

Now, once your soaping oils as well as the lye solution are at room temperature, they are ready to be combined.  So, add the lye solution to the bowl containing the soaping oils.  Next, use your stick blender to blend the soap batter. 

Add the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil

Once your soap batter is emulsified, it is time to add the fragrance oil.  So, add the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil.  Then, once again, use the stick blender to incorporate the scent.

Divide the Rosewood Musk CP Soap Batter

Now, it is time to separate your soap batter.  So, simply divide the soap batter equally into three bowls.

Add the Colorants to the Soap Batter

Next, add one of your colorants to each bowl.  So, one bowl should be colored with the pink colorant.  Add the pink colorant to this bowl.  Then, add the cocoa powder colorant to the second bowl.  Finally, add the titanium dioxide to the last bowl.  Lastly, use your stick blender to the blend the contents of each bowl to incorporate the colorants.  You will want to begin with the white soap batter.  Then, move to the pink soap batter.  Finally, stick blend the brown soap batter.  This will allow you to blend the contents of each bowl without needing to clean the stick blender in between mixing.

Pouring Rosewood and Musk CP Soap ProjectPouring Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

Before we begin pouring the soap, we would like to mention that about half of the white soap batter should be kept to top the soap loaf once it is poured.  So, starting with an empty bowl, begin pouring small amounts of each color of the soap batter. You will need to pour all of the colors in small increments. Keep pouring small amounts of the pink, brown, and some white soap batter until you have used all of the pink and brown soap batter and about half of the white soap batter.  Then, allow the remaining white batter aside to thicken a bit.  You can set this portion aside for the moment.

Swirling the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap ProjectSwirling the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

For the moment we will focus on the brown, pink, and white bowl of soap batter.  So, place this bowl in front of you.  Next, you will need a rubber spatula.  Place the rubber spatula in the bowl. Then, slowly move the spatula in a circular motion around the bowl until you are happy with your swirls.

Pouring the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap
Pouring Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Batter

Finally, it is time to pour the soap batter into two cavities of the 4-loaf silicone mold.  So, divide the soap batter equally between the two cavities in the silicone soap mold.  Gently, tap the soap mold on the counter to release any air bubbles that may have formed.

Topping the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap 
Topping the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap

Next, we will begin topping our soap.  So, for this step, you will need the remaining white soap batter that you set aside.  It needs to be at a thick frosting-like consistency. Now, once the white soap batter is at this consistency, place the it on top of each loaf.  Create peaks in the white topping.

Adding Finishing Touches to the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

At this time, we will add a rose petal finishing touch!  Lightly sprinkle the top of each loaf with the pink rose petals.  You can use as little or as much as you would like.  We used less than a gram total for both loaves when creating ours.

Cutting the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

Cutting the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

After about 24- 48 hours, your rosewood musk cp soap can be removed from the mold.  Then, you can slice the soap loaves and allow them to finish curing.  The cold process soap will be ready to use after curing for 4-6 weeks.

Make A Few Preparations for the Pearamel Soap RecipeMake A Few Preparations for the Pearamel Soap Recipe

Prior to making this cold process soap recipe, you are going to want to make a few preparations for the Pearamel Soap Recipe. First of all, you are going to want to gather the soap making ingredients that are listed for this cosmetic recipe. Also, you are going to need to clear a work space to give yourself the space that you would need for small batch soap making. Also, you will want to prepare a spray bottle of vinegar for you to use for soap making. If you have not made cold process soap in the past, you will want to read both our Basic CP Soap Making Class and our guide to Soap Making Safety.

Also, you need to create a chickweed tea.  Fill two fillable teabags with chickweed.  Then, boil water and add the tea bags.  The water portion of this recipe will be replaced with the tea.  So, you need to make sure you have plenty of the chickweed tea.  For this recipe, you will need 409 grams of the tea.  You will want to boil extra water to ensure that you have enough for this recipe as some will evaporate.

 

Prepare the Lye Solution for the CP SoapPrepare the Lye Solution for the CP Soap

Now, you will need to prepare your lye solution for the cp soap.  In order to prepare your lye solution, you will need to weigh out the chickweed tea in a bowl.  Once you have weighed out your tea, weigh out your lye in a separate bowl.  Then, slowly add the lye to the tea.  Add a small amount of the lye and then stir using a rubber spatula.  Repeat this process until you have added all of the lye to the tea.  Allow the lye solution to cool to room temperature.  Once the lye solution has cooled, add the sodium lactate.

Prepare the Soaping Oils for the Pearamel Soap RecipePrepare the Soaping Oils for the Pearamel Soap Recipe

It will take some time for the lye solution to cool.  So, while you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, you can move on to preparing your soaping oils.  Weigh out all of the soaping oils listed above.  Then, melt the oils.  You will also want to allow your soaping oils to come to room temperature.

Prepare Your Pearamel Soap Recipe ColorantsPrepare Your Pearamel Soap Recipe Colorants

Once you have prepared your soaping oils, you can set them aside to cool and begin preparing your soap colorants.  For this recipe, we will prepare a white colorant and a green colorant.  The third caramel color in this recipe was created simply by allowing the soap to naturally discolor to its caramel color caused by the Pearamel Fragrance Oil.  In addition, your will need to weigh out 27 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.

Prepare the White Soap Colorant

In order to prepare the white soap colorant, we will use titanium dioxide.  So, in a small bowl, add 8 grams of titanium dioxide and a small amount of your soaping oils.  Mix the two ingredients together with a spoon.  By adding the oils to the titanium dioxide, it will prevent the white colorant from clumping when you add it your soap batter and allow it to disperse easily.  You can set the white colorant in your soaping area so it will be ready when you are ready to soap.

Prepare the Green Soap Colorant

Next, we will prepare the green soap colorant.  You will need another small bowl.  To this bowl, add 10 drops of the Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant along with 2 drops of the Natures Garden’s Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix the two colorants together.  You can also set this colorant in your soaping area.  It will be used when we begin soaping.

Prepare the Pearamel Fragrance OilPrepare the Pearamel Fragrance Oil

At this time, prepare the Pearamel Fragrance Oil.  You will need to prepare two small bowls of fragrance oil.  To each of these bowls, add 27 grams of the Pearamel Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  Since we will be dividing our soap batter prior to scenting it, separating the fragrance oil into two smaller portions is going to be the easiest way to do this.  It will allow you to move more quickly when soaping.

Combine the Lye Solution and Soaping Oils
Combine the Lye Solution and Soaping Oils

Once your soaping oils and the lye solution have come to room temperature, you are reading to begin soaping.  So, add the soaping oils to the lye solution.  Finally, use your stick blend the to emulsify the soap batter.  

Separate Your Soap Batter

Next, you will need to divide your soap batter into three bowls.  So, pour one-third of the soap batter into each bowl.  Set two of the bowls aside for just a moment.

Prepare the Uncolored Soap BatterPrepare the Uncolored Soap Batter

First, we will work with the portion that will remain uncolored.  To this bowl, add 27 grams of the Natures Garden Pearamel Fragrance Oil.  Use your stick blender to incorporate the fragrance oil.

Prepare the White Soap Batter

Next, you will want to prepare the white soap batter.  So, too the second bowl add the titanium dioxide mixture you prepared earlier.  This portion of the soap will remain unscented.  Once again stick blend and set this bowl aside for the moment.

Prepare the Green Soap Batter

Finally, you will need to prepare the green soap batter.  So, to your third bowl, add the green colorant, 27 grams of the Pearamel Fragrance Oil and 27 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Using your stick blender, mix the ingredients together.

Pearamel Soap RecipePearamel Soap Recipe

At this time, we will begin pouring the soap batter into the loaf mold.  We will begin by pouring the uncolored portion into the soap mold.  Pour the soap into the soap mold. Once you have this base color poured, you can begin pouring the other two colors into the mold.  Alternate between the green and the white.  You will need to use all of the green soap batter and about half of the white soap batter.  We will be saving half of the white for the top of the soap.  You can set this portion aside for a few minutes.

Once you have poured all three colors of soap batter into the mold, place a wooden skewer into the mold and make circular motions throughout the soap mold.  This will create swirls throughout the loaf of soap.  Once you are satisfied with your swirls, tap the mold gently on your tabletop to release any air bubble in the soap batter.

Topping Pearamel Soap Topping Pearamel Soap

Now, we will begin topping the loaf of soap using the remaining white soap batter.  You want to wait until your white soap batter has a nice thick frosting-like consistency.  Once your remaining white soap batter is at a thickened, simply place it on top of the soap in a mountain-like shape.

Adding the Caramel Drizzle to the Pearamel SoapAdding the Caramel Drizzle to the Pearamel Soap

The last thing we will do to the soap loaf is add a caramel colored drizzle.  So, melt the cocoa butter melt and pour soap base.  Then, add the oxide colorants, Pearamel Fragrance Oil, and Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Gently stir to blend the ingredients. Finally, use a disposable pipette to drizzle the caramel color soap across the white soap batter.

 

Cut the Pearamel CP Soap and Allow it to CureCut the Pearamel CP Soap and Allow it to Cure

Wait about 24-48 hours before removing your soap from the mold.  When the soap is ready, cut the pearamel cp soap into slices.  Once you have allowed 4-6 weeks for your soap to cure, it is ready to use.

Try a Caramel and Pear Dessert

As you can tell from the Pearamel Fragrance Oil, the aroma of juicy pears and sugary sweet caramel create a scrumptious aroma. So, it can be easy to imagine how mouth watering the these flavors could be in a fresh, homemade dessert recipe! Try out this perfect blend of sweet caramel and fruit in the Caramel Pear Pudding recipe created by Taste of Home. You will be sure to enjoy this homemade dessert!
