Coconut Oil is one of the most popular oils that is used in soap making. It’s very affordable, easy to obtain and it can be very good for the skin and hair. If you love making soap, or are new to soap making, take a look at some of Nature’s Garden’s coconut soap recipes. Not only will you be inspired by the creativity, but you skin will be happy and healthy looking!

Coconut oil is perfect for smoothing out dry, frizzy hair and it is also good for nourishing dry, split ends. If you have a sensitivity to products that contain a lot of chemicals or fragrances, this is a good, natural alternative to lotion or body cream and of course, it’s perfect for hydrating that itchy, dry skin. Since coconut oil contains Vitamin E, it is also perfect for helping to delay the look of wrinkles.

As you may know, there are two types of coconut oil. Nature’s Garden offers Coconut Oil-76 and Fractionated Coconut Oil. Both work equally well in all bath and body products. You may notice that fractionated coconut oil does not solidify like regular coconut oil-76 does. That is because the fatty triglycerides from the oil have been removed and what is left is the clear, liquid form of the coconut oil. This type of coconut oil is perfect for using in massage oils, as a carrier oil for lip gloss or essential oils. Any time you want your product to stay at as a liquid, fractionated coconut oil is the perfect answer.

Coconut Oil-76 is a solid form of and only turns liquid in temperatures of 76 degrees Fahrenheit or above. Coconut oil is popular in any type of soap making, bath and body products and even in cooking. It is also very obtainable in grocery stores, soap making supply stores and at any type of big box store. It also very affordable, which makes it perfect for making soap. Both types of coconut oil will give your soap a wonderful, bubbly lather and can also contribute to making your soap hard and white. Coconut Oil-76 is perfect for any type of cosmetic product or bath and body product, such as a body scrub, that you want to have a solid form to.

Candy Cane fragrance worked perfectly in our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, separation, or accelerating! However, we did experience some discoloring to a brown. You can use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help prevent the oxidation of the fragrance. Also, the scent retention was strong and true throughout the cure time!

This fragrance oil is body safe and would be perfect in all bath and body products. We have a wonderful recipe that uses our Candy Cane Fragrance Oil. Check out our sweet Candy Cane Candle. This candle has pretty pink, red and white layers with a fluffy white topping and some sweet little swirled wafer embeds sitting atop the fluff!

Christmas Cabernet is a soaper’s dream! During our cold process soap testing, there was no ricing, accelerating, or separating. Although it did turn a shade of olive brown, using a Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help prevent this. Also, the scent retention was incredibly strong even after its cure time. This fragrance is also body safe and makes some wonderful smelling bath and body products. It also worked equally well in all soy and vegetable waxes.

If you enjoy making bath and body products, check out our Wine Sugar Scrub recipe. Sugar scrubs are incredibly popular and easy to make. A few simple ingredients such as sugar, olive oil, cocoa butter and grapeseed oil, is all it takes to make up nine 4 oz. jars of this yummy smelling scrub! Your skin will smell amazing and will also feel soft and smooth afterward.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabin Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabin Fragrance Oil

Nature’s Garden’s Christmas Cabin Fragrance Oil is a true best seller during the holiday season.

Christmas Thyme fragrance oil is perfect for those that want a pine fragrance that isn’t overwhelming! Definite top notes of cinnamon, bayberries and apples along with the undertones of pine and thyme. A perfect balance that smells fresh and crisp!

Christmas Thyme is one of the few fragrances that is not body safe, therefore we did no cold process soap testing, nor any testing in bath and body products. However, this is a wonderful scent for those looking for candle fragrances that have wonderful cold and hot throws. This fragrance also makes a perfect room freshener or potpourri and incense.

If you are looking for a recipe to create for those that like potpourri, check out our Christmas Liquid Potpourri Recipe.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance Oil

What in the world is a Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins? 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. A very yummy smelling cotton head you will be!

Our Country Christmas fragrance oil is a truly fantastic scent that is a blend of bayberries, cranberries, and apples, with spicy nuances of nutmeg and cloves with a top note of orange zests. This is another fragrance oil that makes me picture an old fashioned Christmas in a warm, cozy farmhouse or cabin. 

Country Christmas fragrance oil was not tested in cold process soap due to the fact that the maximum body safeness level was very low. If you do choose to soap with it, please try to stick to the guideline of the percentage we have allowed for. However, this fragrance is perfect in candles, wax melts, and any type of room freshening recipe!

With a country Christmas comes pictures of rustic decorations, home smells and family gatherings. We developed an easy decoration that uses our Country Christmas fragrance! Our Scented Twine Christmas Ornaments are a fun, easy craft to create! Simply wrap twine around an inflated balloon, coat the twine in scented glue, allow to dry.

Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, comes from the rhizomes (or roots) of a herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family. It is native to India and Southeast Asia.  In Asia, turmeric is known as “manjal” or even “kasturi manjal”. Much like its cousin the ginger root, Turmeric can be grated and used fresh. Turmeric rhizomes, when not used fresh, will be boiled in water, dried in hot ovens, and then they are ground into the powder that we are all familiar with.

This perennial plants can grow up to over 3 feet tall. It has cylinder-type roots that range in color from yellow to orange. Heavy branches grow up from the roots.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Turmeric PowderTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Turmeric Powder

So let’s begin now with our turmeric face mask! First, we are going to start with the turmeric powder. So, get your scale out. You will also be using a medium sized bowl. Have your scale tared out. Then, go ahead and weigh out 96 grams of your turmeric powder.

 

 

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Bentonite Clay PowderTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Bentonite Clay Powder

First, let’s talk about Bentonite Clay Powder. Bentonite is a wonderful addition to any face mask! This type of clay, when used in face masks, helps clean impurities from the skin. When used in soaps, bentonite is good at treating oily skin. Also, when used in bath bombs, it helps harden them. In addition, bentonite is useful in thickening lotions.

So, now we are going to weigh out the bentonite. You will add the clay to the same bowl you have your turmeric powder in. Tare out your scale and to the medium bowl, add 224 grams of bentonite clay. Next, mix the two ingredients together until everything seems evenly dispersed.

 

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Add the Vitamin E OilTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Add the Vitamin E Oil

The next ingredient we will be adding is Vitamin E. Vitamin E from Nature’s Garden comes in the purest form, is also known as Tocepherol T-50. This is not tocopherol acetate (the form found in many vitamin E capsules).   Vitamin E is a wonderful antioxidant and is fabulous for your skin.

So, to the bowl containing the powdered ingredients, you will be adding your Vitamin E oil. Using a disposable pipette you will add 24 drops of the Vitamin E oil right on top of the powder. Finally, use a spoon or spatula to mix the ingredients together.

 

Turmeric Face Mask recipe: Packaging your Facial MaskTurmeric Face Mask recipe: Packaging your Facial Mask

For this recipe, we decided to package the powder portion of the face mask and the vegetable glycerin separately. We chose to create the facial mask recipe this way for a couple of reasons. First, creating the facial mask mixture separately without the water you will not need to add a preservative. In addition, you will be able to prepare a quick product for your customers. This recipe can be made in just a few minutes. Each 2 ounce jar will create approximately 4 facial masks.

The next part of our recipe is the vegetable glycerin. Vegetable Glycerin is a humectant, meaning, it draws moisture to your skin. So by adding vegetable glycerin to this recipe, your skin will be left feeling soft and hydrated.

Next,we will prepare the liquid portion of the facial mask. Water, while it is an ingredient in the recipe, will not be used until you are ready mix and apply the face mask. So, we will prepare eight 1/2 ounce bottles for the vegetable glycerin. To each bottle, add 12 grams of the vegetable glycerin and cap them with the white ribbed lids.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Using Your Facial Mask

As we talked about previously, by mixing this mask on an as needed basis, it will prolong the shelf life and can be made quickly when needed. With that being said, let’s talk about using the mask. It is really a simple process. Also, if you are selling this mask as a product, you can sell the jar and bottle as a set and label it with instructions.

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Prepping Your Supplies and Work Area

As with any recipe you should always prep your supplies and work area. This helps in creating your craft without stopping to look for your ingredients. First thing is to clean your work space and ensure that you have enough room to work and lay your dough down. Next, give your utensils and scale a quick clean with some soap and water. Lastly, have all your ingredients ready for measuring and withing easy reach! For sanitary reasons go ahead and put your rubber safety gloves on.  Just a few preventative steps will help things move along smoothly!

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry Ingredients

Our first step will be measuring and combining our dry ingredients. You will need a large mixing bowl and your scale. Set your scale to grams.  Next, weigh out 410 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 460 grams of Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda, 224 grams of Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of Corn Starch.

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet Ingredients

Next comes the wet stuff! You will need another mixing bowl ( or you can simply add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl) and your gram scale. Now weigh out 200 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 24 grams of Sesame Seed Oil and 14 grams of Cucumber Fragrance Oil.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Let’s add the wet and dry ingredients together! If you have mixed your wet ingredients separately go ahead and dump them in with your dry. If you add your wet straight to the dry you can start mixing with your hands making sure that you are breaking up any lumps as you go. Mix until you have the right consistency (you should have a nice, smooth workable dough). If your dough is to crumbly after mixing together, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. Be careful to not add too much or the bubble bar will not set up properly.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

The third step in our recipe will be separating the bubble bar dough. For this you will need your 2 mixing bowls. You will divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Each portion will be a different color. We have included a color chart to help you achieve the correct color for the spots and the “skin” of the giraffe.

Bowl 1:

  • Brown Oxide- 6 drops
  • Orange Oxide- 3 drops
  •  Black Oxide- 6 drops
  •  Red Oxide- 6 drops

Bowl 2:

  • Yellow Oxide- 3 drops

Now that your dough is separated, let’s start adding color.  We will work on the spots and inner color of the bubble bar. To the first bowl, add your 6 drops of Brown Oxide, 3 drops of Orange Oxide, 6 drops of Black Oxide and 6 drops of Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. With your gloved hands mix the colorant into your dough until you have achieved an orange brown color.  Roll the dough into a ball and set it aside, for now.

Next, let’s create the “skin” color of the giraffe. For this you will add 3 drops of Yellow Oxide FUN Soap colorant to your second bowl of dough. With clean gloved hands mix this colorant into your dough until you have a nice, pale yellow color. 

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Getting Ready to Roll the Layers

Now that our dough is separated and colored, we are ready to start rolling the layers. For this step you will use your silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Dust whichever you have chosen to use with some baking soda. This will help keep the dough from sticking when it is time to roll the dough. You should also dust your rolling pin with some baking soda to help prevent sticking.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First Layer

Our first layer will be the yellow layer. Go ahead and take your yellow dough ball and lay it in the center of the surface of your mat or paper. Now roll your ball into a flat, rectangular shape.  You will want this layer about 1/4 inch in thickness.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second Layer

Next up is our Orange brown layer. Before you start rolling, however, you need to pull of about 30 grams of the dough and set this aside. This portion will be for the spots. Place the remaining dough in the center of the yellow rectangle dough and start rolling this layer out. You may add some baking soda to your rolling pin before you start to prevent sticking. Roll this layer out to the size or as close to the size of the yellow layer and at 1/4 inch thick. Once you have finished, you will be all set to move onto rolling the bubble bar dough into a loaf.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling Up The Bubble Bar

Now that your layers are rolled out, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. Turn your silicone mat or parchment paper so that the mat or paper is vertical. Lift up on the edge of the paper or mat that is closest to your body. Begin to carefully roll the dough in the same way you would a pumpkin roll. Slowly roll the dough evenly as you go, watching to make sure everything stays lined up.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spotsGiraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spots

Now that your dough is in its rolled up completely, we will begin using the orange brown colored dough we set aside to create our “spots”. Giraffe spots are not perfect in size and shape. This is the look you will want to go for. Pull off irregular size pieces of the reserved dough and add it to the yellow portion of your bubble bar. (Having trouble getting a good pattern in your head? Try Googling “giraffe” and find a pattern you can follow!)  Once your loaf is completely covered you will be ready to slice it up into individual bars.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished ProductGiraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished Product

Let’s cut this loaf into slices! This recipe will make about 8 slices, depending on how thick you choose to slice your loaf. Using a sharp knife, slice the bubble bar into 1-2 inch slices. Once your loaf is completely sliced, lay the portions out on a flat surface to set up. Our bubble bars took approximately 48-72 hours to set up completely. This may take longer, depending on the climate of your  environment.

Your Giraffe Bubble Bar is ready to use! When it’s bath time, simply crumble a slice of bar under warm, running bath water and enjoy the bubbles that will froth up into your tub and have a nice, long soak! You will emerge from your bath smelling sweet, fresh and feeling soft and clean!

 

Did You Know?Did You Know?

Have you ever looked at the beauty of a giraffe? I mean, really watched them when you visit a zoo?  They are amazing creatures! Majestic in their movements, they roam the open grasslands in small groups. A giraffe’s height is both an advantage and a disadvantage. While towering at a height ranging from 14 to 18 feet tall they have the ability to spot predators. Their height helps them eat from the leaves of trees since the disadvantage in their height is bending down. It is incredibly difficult for them and it leaves them in a vulnerable state to be attacked.  Luckily, giraffes only need to drink once every several days since most of their water intake is from the leaves they consume. They can also run a steady 35 miles an hour over short distances and comfortably at 10 miles per hour over longer distances. 

Giraffes are truly beautiful animals and their eyelashes! They are to die for! Another fun giraffe fact is that a group of giraffes are called a tower! Kind of fitting, right? Towers usually consist of females and babies, however genders will vary and they can come and go as they please.

Rainbow MP Soap RecipeRainbow MP Soap Recipe

Sometimes our inspirations come from the simplest things.  Well, over the past few weeks I have been testing, creating videos, and packaging cold process soaps using Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants.  Once they were packaged and labeled, I took them to Shannon to display in the store.  We carry 21 of these colorants and I tested each soap colorant using five different amounts.  So, this meant that we had over 100 soaps to display.  Shannon decided to display them on a round, tiered display in our store, see the display here.  When I saw how she displayed them, I was immediately inspired to create a variety of rainbow themed recipes that will go on the bottom tier of her display.  So, below, you will find my Rainbow MP Soap Recipe, the second of several recipes we will be creating inspired by this display.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your SoapRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Soap

First, I prepared all of my soap.  This means weighing out and cutting up all of the soap for each of the seven layers.  You will need your scale, mixing bowls, and clear melt and pour soap.  Now, in each of your seven mixing bowls, weigh out and cut up 130 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Purple Soap Layer

Now, you will need one of your bowls of clear melt and pour soap.  You will also need the deep purple FUN Soap Colorant, fragrance oil, and Vanilla White.  Finally, you will need your 4 loaf mold, and your bottle of rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Purple Soap LayerSo, place your mixing bowl in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  If you notice that the soap has not completely melted, you may need about 10 more seconds.  This will all just depend on your microwave.  Once your soap has melted, add 4 drops of the purple soap colorant.  Then, add 6 grams of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil and 6 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Use a mixing spoon to blend the ingredients.  Finally, pour your melted purple soap into the loaf mold.  Spray the melted soap with rubbing alcohol to release the air bubbles.  Allow the purple soap to setup completely before moving on.

Next, we will be preparing a blue layer of soap.  So, you will, once again, need one of your bowls of weighed out soap, your fragrance oil, and Vanilla White.  In addition, you will need the ultramarine blue soap colorant and your soap mold.  At this time, also get your Angel Wings fragrance oil and Vanilla White Color Stabilizer ready.

Next, we will prepare our Kelly green soap.  So, once again, you will need one of your bowls of soap.  This time, you will need the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant.  Also, your fragrance oil, color stabilizer, rubbing alcohol, and soap mold should be in front of you.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Orange Soap Layer

Now, we will prepare our orange layer of soap.  For this layer, we will use Natures Garden’s Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant.  So, you will need this colorant along with another bowl of soap base you weighed out earlier.  In addition, you will need your Angel Wings Fragrance Oil and Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Also, place your mold in front of you and you rubbing alcohol close.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Tomato Red Soap Layer

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Tomato Red Soap LayerOur final layer will be colored with Natures Garden’s Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Now, melt your last bowl of mp soap base in your microwave.  Then, add 6 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Also, add 6 grams of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil.  Finally, add 4 drops of Tomato Red Soap Colorant.  Mix to incorporate the ingredients completely together.  Finally, spray your previous layer with rubbing alcohol and pour your tomato red soap on top.  Spray the tomato red soap with rubbing alcohol.  Allow this final layer to setup before moving on.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Rainbows

Now, we will prepare the rainbows that will top our soap.  This will be done using melt and pour soap and vegetable glycerin.  We will pour the soap into the remaining 2 cavities of the loaf soap mold and allow it to setup.  Later, we will slice it into smaller pieces and use the smaller pieces to create our rainbows.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Red LayerRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Red Layer

So, first, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir to blend the ingredients.  Now, in two of the cavities of the silicone 4 loaf mold, pour the melted soap.  You want to pour half the soap in one cavity, and half in the other.  Allow it to setup before moving to the next color.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Orange LayerRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Orange Layer

Next, once again, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix everything together slowly and thoroughly until everything is combined.  Spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the orange soap right on top, in the same manner you did before.  Allow the soap to setup before you prepare the next color.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Green LayerRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Green Layer

At this time, we will begin preparing the lime green layer.  Melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Now, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, stir to incorporate the ingredients.  Spray the orange soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the green soap right on top of the orange soap, pouring half in each cavity.  Allow the soap to setup before you prepare the next color.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Blue LayerRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Blue Layer

Again, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  We will begin preparing the blue layer.  Once your soap is melted, beginning adding 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, stir to incorporate the ingredients. Spray the green soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour a blue layer of soap right on top of the green soap in both cavities.  After spraying the soap with rubbing alcohol, allow it to setup before you prepare the next color.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Purple LayerRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare The Purple Layer

Finally, we will begin preparing the purple layer.  We will melt one more layer of soap.  So, melt 30 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Now, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 1 gram of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, 1 gram of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 1 drop of Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, stir to incorporate the ingredients. Spray the blue soap with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the purple soap right on top of the blue soap.  Again, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol.  Allow the soap to setup before you move on.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Cutting the RainbowsRainbow MP Soap Recipe: Cutting the Rainbows

Lastly, once the soap has setup, remove it from the mold.  Then, slice it into strips.  You want them to be about 3/4 inch wide and about 5 3/4 inches.  So, you want to be sure you are slicing them long ways.  Finally, do the same with the soap in the cavity of the mold.  You will notice that due to the addition of vegetable glycerin, the soap is nice and flexible.  This will allow us to bend them into a rainbow shape and later place them on top of our whipped soap.  Go ahead and shape each rainbow so that you have them ready for the top of the soap.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

Now, we will begin preparing our whipped soap base.  The whipped soap base is meant to look like clouds in this recipe.  It will also anchor our rainbows to our soap loaf.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 200 grams of the whipped soap base.  Next, add 20 grams of vegetable glycerin, 20 grams of Angel Wings Fragrance Oil, and 20 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Then, use a hand mixer to fluff the soap to a fluffy cloud-like consistency.  Set this aside for a moment, we will come back to it.

Rainbow MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

In a separate mixing bowl, weigh out 200 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Melt the soap base using your microwave.  Once the soap is melted, pour it into the bowl containing the whipped soap.  Finally, mix the soap once again with your hand mixer.

At this time, we will begin topping our soap loaf.  Place the whipped soap on top of each loaf, covering the entire loaf.  You will use half of the whipped soap on each loaf.  So, when you are finished it will look like clouds on top of your soap.

Then, place the rainbows on top of the loaves.  We used about 4 rainbows on each loaf.

Once your soap has finished setting up, slice your soap using your mitre box and mitre box cutter.  Then, you can use your rainbow melt and pour soap right away.
