Properties of Coconut Oil

There are three fatty acids that make up this oil: capric acid, lauric acid, and caprylic acid. These fatty acids can provide many great benefits for your skin. There are many healthy saturated fats that make up coconut oil. These saturated fats have been known to promote weight loss and provide your body and brain with quick energy.

There are two types of coconut oils carried at Nature’s Garden: Coconut Oil 76 and Fractionated Coconut Oil. Fractionated coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides that allow it to stay liquid at lower temperatures than the coconut oil 76. Coconut oil 76 also contains more fatty acids like: Myristic, Palmitic, and Stearic which give it different properties. One of the properties is that it doesn’t blend in with other oils as well as fractionated coconut oil does. Both forms of coconut oil have their own benefit, it’s up to you to decide which one you need.

Decorating Tip for Piping Bag
Saran Wrap

Total Recipe Weights for Cold Process Soap:

18 grams Sodium Lactate
(added to cooled lye solution)

136 grams Palm Oil

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!

Natures Garden’s Cappuccino Fragrance Oil has been described by one of our customers as a very warm and comforting scent with a strong coffee smell which is expected from cappuccino.  You may be thinking, why is that expected of cappuccino?  Cappuccino is an Italian coffee drink.  Traditionally, cappuccino is made with espresso, hot milk and steamed milk foam.

 

What Does Cappuccino Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Cappuccino Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a rich strong fresh brewed coffee with heavy cream and sugar.

How Do Our Customers Use Cappuccino Fragrance Oil?

I checked out our customer reviews to get a better insight to this question.  One customer states “all my customers that are morning coffee drinkers love this one in an air freshener.  I use it alone for classic scent or I mix it with a bit of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil around September and October.  I cant make it fast enough!”

Calling all candle crafters, Cappuccino Fragrance Oil would make a delightful compliment to any barista scented line of candles.  For candle making purposes, the maximum usage is 10% and performs perfectly in wow wax, joy wax, and the scent is nice and strong in soy wax. It is also fabulous when making homemade candle wax tarts using pillar of bliss wax.  For color ideas, it is suggested to use 5 drops of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax. Another option is to shred an ample amount of a brown color block into your melted wax.  It is never recommended to use crayons for candle coloring as it will clog your wick.

Homemade soap makers, the maximum usage is 5% for your bath and body products needs. Cappuccino Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in perfumes.  It also performs just as well as in products such as lotions, bath gels, and bath oils .  Natures Garden’s cold process soap testing results shows no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation with with a good scent retention.  It does discolor to a light brown.  The vanillin content of Cappuccino Fragrance Oil is 6%.  Fragrances containing vanilla ingredients may discolor soap. Vanilla White Color stabilizer may help prevent discoloration due to vanilla.  However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products.  Never use candle dye in any body products.  A color suggestion for your bath and body products is to use brown oxide soap colorant in an amount that satisfies you.

For your home scenting needs such as room scenting purposes the maximum usage is 50% and for homemade cleaning products purposes the maximum usage rate for this Cappuccino Fragrance Oil is 5%.  In reed diffusers, incense, potpourri and aroma beads, the aroma is nice and strong.
