Pink Sangria Soap RecipePink Sangria Soap Recipe

Fruity beverages always seem to bring an extra sense of brightness into anyone’s life. From the tart taste of lemon to the sweet juiciness of a plum, any kind of fruit can brighten anyone’s day. Nature’s Garden’s Pink Sangria Soap Recipe attempts to bring this same refreshing sensation into anyone’s household. This melt and pour soap recipe is easy for anyone to make. This recipe captures the fruity essence of cherries, oranges, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Below, we mention how you can make your own soap at home that smells just like sangria.

What is Sangria?

The sangria is a drink that has originated from Spain. You can mix this drink using red wine and chopped fruit. Traditionally, you could find this drink served in clay pitchers. Now, you can commonly find sangria mixed into wine glasses. No one has been able to find the true origin of the drink, but it can be traced back to Spain, England, and Greece. The drink has been traced back to the 18th century to another similar drink called Sangaree. The Sangaree was a drink served in the Caribbeans and could be served either iced or hot. There are many different combinations that you can put into the Sangria which make it such a unique drink. Traditionally, this drink can be mixed with any fruit that the user desires to put in it. Some of the fruits that are commonly added include blueberries, strawberries, lemon, grapes, pineapple, and many others. Other additions to Sangria that aren’t unheard of are brandy, sparkling water, and liqueur.

Properties of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapProperties of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap is the soap of choice used in the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe. This soap contains a lot of unique properties, which make it the perfect fit for this recipe. This MP soap base has a translucent color to it that allows embeds to easily show when added to this soap. The shininess of the soap also makes for a nice glistening effect on your end product when you are done making it. For example, in this recipe, we used this soap because it allows the vibrancy of the fruit soap embeds to show the best. Another great property of this soap, as with any other melt and pour soap, is that it has a high moisturizing content. This soap contains 99.5% glycerin and deodorized distilled coconut oil.

Preparing the Orange Soap EmbedsPreparing the Orange Soap Embeds

The first fruit that will be included in our pink sangria soap is orange slices. So, we will start by creating these embeds. The first step is to melt 60 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Thoroughly melt the soap in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it is a liquid state, stirring in between each 30-second burst. Once melted, add 4 drops of the Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant and 3 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil.  Stir to blend the ingredients together. Make sure that the orange color and the fragrance oil fully incorporate into the soap. Then, pour the orange soap into the orange slices mold.

Setting up the Orange Soap EmbedsSetting up the Orange Soap Embeds

After pouring the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles. You want to allow adequate time for the soap to setup in the mold. Once the soap sets up, remove the embeds from the mold. Finally, you can set the orange slice embeds aside. They will be used in a later step.

 

 

 

Preparing and Setting up the Soap Cherry EmbedsPreparing and Setting up the Soap Cherry Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is cherries. So, the next embeds we need to create are the cherry soaps. To start off, you want to melt 30 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Make sure that the soap is thoroughly melted. Melting the soap thoroughly will ensure that the cherry soap embeds are as smooth as possible. Once the soap has melted, add 3 drops of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant and 1 gram of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Stir the soap thoroughly to completely mix the red colorant and the fragrance oil.  Pour the red soap into the cherries mold and allow enough time to setup. When the soap appears completely hard, remove it from the mold. 

Preparing and Setting up the Blackberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting up the Blackberry Soap Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is blackberries. So, the next soap embeds we will be making for the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe are the blackberries. To start out, weigh out and melt 150 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Completely melt the soap base before moving on. To the melted soap, you want to add 11 drops of the Ultramarine Violet, 2 drops of the Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant, and 7 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Stir the colors thoroughly into the soap until everything is thoroughly blended. Pour the dark purple melted soap into the berries mold. Set aside and allow adequate time for the soap embeds to completely setup. Once setup, remove them from the mold.

Preparing and Setting Up the Raspberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting Up the Raspberry Soap Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is raspberries. Thus, the next soap embeds to make are the red raspberries. To start out, you want to weigh out and melt 150 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Melt the soap base thoroughly before moving on. Next, add 2 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant, 3 drops of the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant, 3 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant, and 7 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Completely stir the soap until all of the colors have blended together. You want to see a solid, uniform red raspberry color when you are done. Also, make sure to completely mix in the fragrance oil as well. Then, pour the red soap into the berries mold. Allow adequate time for the soap to setup and solidify. Once setup, remove the raspberry embeds from the mold.

Preparing and Setting Up the Strawberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting Up the Strawberry Soap Embeds

The final fruit that goes into a sangria is strawberries. Thus, we are now going to create the strawberry soap embeds.  Start out by melting 230 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Since there is more soap base here, allow adequate time for this soap to melt completely. After the soap is completely melted, add 11 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil and 10 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir the soap completely to allow the red color to mix in, as well as the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. Pour the melted red soap into the strawberries mold. Since the strawberries are thicker than the previous fruits that were made, you want to allow more time for these to set up. When you are pulling the strawberry embeds out of the molds, ensure that their centers aren’t liquid anymore. When you are sure they are completely solid, remove the strawberries from the mold.

Preparing the Soap BasePreparing the Soap Base

Now that all of the fruit soap embeds are done, the last of the soap to melt is the filling of the loaf portion of the soap mold. This portion is what holds all of the fruit soap embeds in place in the soap and represents the pink sangria portion of the soap. To do this, first, weigh out and melt 1650 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Once again, you will need to melt the soap in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Next, add one drop of the Da Bomb Soap Dye and 82 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil to the melted soap base. Stir the ingredients together to completely incorporate the soap dye and the fragrance oil.  We have used the Da Bomb Soap Dye from Natures Garden for this portion. This will allow the clear soap base to maintain a translucent appearance.

Pouring and Finishing the SoapPouring and Finishing the Soap

Get the loaf molds out. Take the fruit molds you made earlier, and add them to the loaf molds. Position the fruit in the molds so they are adequately spaced, and there is a variety in each loaf mold. Adding variety to each soap mold will ensure that they look as colorful as possible when they come out of the molds. Next, pour the soap base from the previous step into the loaf molds, over the fruit embeds. Fill the loaf molds to cover everything inside of it. If you choose, you can spray the soap with rubbing alcohol.  However, we wanted our soap to have a bubbly look so we chose not to spray this portion. Once the soap is completely setup, remove it from the molds. The last step is to slice your soap using the mitre box and mitre box cutter. Your Pink Sangria Soap Recipe is now ready to be used. You can use them in the bathroom, or in the kitchen, take your pick, We hope you enjoyed this melt and pour soap recipe!

Sangria is a delicious fruity drink that incorporates a bunch of different fruits. There are many other fruity, non-alcoholic cocktails that you can make too at home. My favorite drink out of this list is the Piña Colada. This tropical drink has a Spanish name that translates to Pineapple and Strained (the strains of coconut). Another refreshing drink in this list is the Bahama Mama. This drink is similar to the sangria in which it incorporates a lot of different fruits. The Bahama Mama uses grapefruit, grenadine, orange juice, and a lot of different fruits. Next time the weather gets really hot, try making one of these drinks and refresh yourself.

Prior to preparing for your Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe, really focus on making sure your work space is prepared and ready to begin. Make sure all your equipment is clean and sanitized. Get all of the ingredients and supplies out and in your work station prior to starting as well. We also recommend putting on protective clothing, such as a soap making apron and gloves along with a hair net when making your homemade soap recipe. Finally, fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a sprayer on top. Rubbing alcohol not only helps with adhesion between the layers of soap but also to release any air bubbles in the soap before it sets up.

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 1: Creating the EmbedsBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 1: Creating the Embeds

First, you are going to create the cute little blackberry embeds that go on top of the Blackberry Cupcake Soap’s frosting. First, you will need a microwave safe small bowl. Now, you will use your scale to weigh out 75 grams of SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap. Cut your clear melt and pour soap into small sections before you begin to melt the base.

 

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 2: Melt in MicrowaveBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 2: Melting Your Clear Soap

Once you have weighed out your SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap, you are going to melt it in your microwave. You are going to want to melt the clear mp soap base in 30-second intervals until it is completely fluid. Also, you will want to make sure you stir the SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap while you are melting it. You need to continue to heat the base until it is in a liquid state, be careful not to overheat the soap base.

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 3: Add Fragrance Oil and Soap ColorantBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 3: Coloring and Scenting the Blackberry Embeds

Next, remove the SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap from the microwave and add your soap colorants and fragrance oil. You will need to add 2 grams of Natures Garden Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil along with 1 drop of black oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Also, add 4 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Lastly, you are going to want to incorporate the ingredients fully into your melted SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap. Mix slowly until everything you added is blended thoroughly and evenly.

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 4: Pouring the Blackberry Embeds

Finally, pour the SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap into 10 cavities of the raspberries and blackberries mold. We recommend getting this mold from www.flexiblemolds.com. Once you pour the soap, be sure to spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles in your melted soap base that may have been created while mixing and pouring your melt and pour soap into the mold.  Allow the soap to completely setup before removing the blackberries from the mold.

 

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 5: Preparing BaseBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 5: Preparing the Cupcake Bases

Now, you are going to start preparing your cupcake bases. Again, you are going to need the SLS Free Clear Soap Base. At this time you will also need the cupcake mold market mold. Next, in a small microwave-safe bowl, weigh out and melt 200 grams of your SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base. Remember to heat up your SLS Fee Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave in 30 second intervals so you do not overheat the clear soap. In addition, you will want to stir your soap base in between each 30 second burst to help it melt evenly.

 

BlackBerry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 6: Add Fragrance Oil and Soap Colorant Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 6: Adding Fragrance Oil and Soap Colorant

Once you melted your 200 grams of SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap base, you are going to add 6 grams of your Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil and make sure it is mixed completely into your melted soap base. Next, add 15 drops of Natures Garden Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant to your melted soap base and 2 drops of your Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant to your melted soap base. Lastly, mix both FUN Soap Colorants completely to incorporate the colors into your melted detergent-free soap base.

 

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 7: Pour in MoldBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 7: Pouring Your Cupcake Bases

Now, you are ready to pour your SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap into your the cupcake base cavities of the cupcake mold. You will notice that this mold has four cavities, two cupcake bases and two cupcake tops. You will only need to pour the cupcake bases of the mold, not the cupcake top cavities. So, slowly pour the purple soap to fill the two cavities. Next, you are going to want to spray the purple soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles that may have formed. Air bubbles can get trapped in the soap as it is setting up, so make sure you spray the homemade soap as soon as you pour it. Finally, you will want to let the soap setup completely before moving on to the next step.

 

 

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 9: Adding liquids to Goat Milk Melt and PourBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 8: Preparing the Whipped Soap Base for the Cupcakes

Next, you are going to prepare the whipped topping portion for your Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe. First, you are going to want to prepare the whipped soap base. For this you will need a medium size mixing bowl ready. Then, weigh out 215 grams of whipped soap base. Now, to the bowl containing the whipped soap base, add 21 grams of vegetable glycerin. Also, you are going to want to add 14 grams of Blackberry Jam Fragrance. Finally, use your hand mixer to whip the soap to a fluffy frosting like consistency. Then, set the bowl aside, you will come back to it shortly.

 

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 9: Preparing the Goat Milk Melt and Pour

Now, in a separate bowl, we will be weighing out your Goat’s Milk MP Soap.  This soap is going to be mixed with the whipped soap base.  By adding mp soap to the whipped soap base it hardens the whipped soap a bit.  While it will still look like frosting it won’t be super soft. This means it can be easily packaged while still maintaining its cupcake appearance.  So, in a deep bowl, weigh out 215 grams of goat milk melt and pour soap. Once again, you are going to want to melt the goat milk melt and pour soap in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Once the soap base is completely melted, we can move on and put everything together.  You will need to move quickly through the next few steps as the base can setup rather fast.

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 10: Add Melted and Whipped Soap BaseBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 10: Putting Everything Together

Next, we will complete the whipped soap frosting. This means it is time to put everything together. You will need to move quickly as the soap frosting does tend to setup quickly. You are going to add your melted goat milk melt and pour soap to your whipped soap base. Again, while using your hand mixer, combine the melt and pour and whipped soap base ingredients until you have a fluffy whipped frosting consistency. Be careful not to over mix.  Over mixing can cause your frosting to setup before you are able to frost the soap cupcakes.

Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 11: Scoop and PlaceBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 11: Topping Your Cupcakes

Now, quickly scoop some of the soap frosting onto each cupcake base you created earlier. Next, you will need the blackberry embeds you prepared earlier. You are finally ready to use those cute blackberry embeds you made! Place the blackberries on the top of each homemade soap cupcake. Push it slightly into the soap frosting so it stays in place. You should have about 10 blackberries to top both cupcakes. This blackberry soap recipe makes two cupcakes. So, this allows you to add up to 5 blackberries per soap cupcake.

 

 Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 12: Finishing TouchesBlackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 12: Finishing Touches

Finally, you are going to prepare the light purple drizzle that you are going to put on top of your homemade blackberry cupcake soap! First, you will want to lay down a piece of wax paper. The wax paper will help keep your area clean and protected while drizzling. Then, remove your cupcakes from the molds and place them on the wax paper. Next, go ahead and melt about 50 grams of goat’s milk melt and pour soap in the microwave. Once that is melted, you can add 1 gram of Natures Garden Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil. Also, you are going to add 10 drops of FUN soap colorant- Ultramarine Violet. Be sure to mix the two well so you have a consistent color. Once you have created the purple drizzle, use a spoon to drizzle the melted light purple soap over the top of each cupcake.
