So, gather your soap making equipment and wash them to ensure that they are clean. Also, you are going to want to clean up a work space. So, clear a space that you can use to make homemade soap. This will ensure that you have an easier and more enjoyable experience. Also, It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, a face mask, safety glasses, and a hair net while preparing this recipe to protect yourself while making soap. Further, you may want to prepare a bottle of vinegar to spray in case of skin contact with lye.

Also, you will want to be familiar with cp soap safety before working on a cold process soap recipe. So, please, become familiar with our Soap Making Safety Class. Once you know the basics of making soap from scratch and are able to be safe during the process, you are ready to create your soap recipe!

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Lye SolutionKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Lye Solution

First, you are going to want to prepare the lye solution for your soap recipe. Of course, you will need to prepare this solution in a well ventilated area. Also, you will need to wear a face mask and gloves. Now, measure out 516 grams of the Water and 193 grams of the Lye- Sodium Hydroxide in separate containers. Now, SLOWLY add the lye to the water. Remember, always add the lye to the water and never the reverse. You will want to carefully stir your water as you add the lye. Once all the lye has been added to the water you will need to wait for the solution to cool.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap OilsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap Oils

While the lye solution is cooling, you can begin to prepare your cosmetic oils. So, measure 272 grams of the Sunflower Oil, 299 grams of the Coconut Oil 76, 163 grams of the Cocoa Butter, 136 grams of the Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 68 grams of the Argan Oil, 95 grams of the Rice Bran Oil, 231 grams of the Shea Butter, and 95 grams of the Fractionated Coconut Oil. Add these cosmetic oils to a microwave safe bowl and use small increments to melt these oils down. If your oil mixture cools too quickly, you can reheat to bring your temperatures closer to each other.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap ColorantsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Preparing the Soap Colorants

While you are waiting for your mixtures to be at the right temperature, you can get your soap colorants ready. So, you will want to get your four small bowls. Then, use the weights listed above to add the colorants to the bowls for the Pink Colorant, Light Green Colorant, Dark Green Colorant, and the White Colorant. After, you can set these bowls aside for a later step.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Combining the Lye and Cosmetic OilsKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Combining the Lye and Cosmetic Oils

Once the temperature for your lye solution and cosmetic oils is around 100 degrees Fahrenheit to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you are ready to combine them. Then, you are going to need to use a stick blender to mix these two mixtures together. Of course, you will need to make sure that you continue mixing until you hit trace to make sure your soaping ingredients are fully emulsified. After this blend of cosmetic oils and lye solution hits trace, you are ready to add the fragrance oil. 

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Kiwi Watermelon Fragrance OilKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Kiwi Watermelon Fragrance Oil

Now, you are ready to add 103 grams of Kiwi Watermelon Fragrance Oil to your cosmetic mixture. This scrumptious fragrance oil begins with juicy notes of watermelon and grapefruit. These scents are followed by middle notes of strawberry, green melon, and white lily. Finally, these aromas are sitting on base notes of ozone, Balsamic vanilla, and fresh woods. After adding this scrumptious soap scent, you will need to stick blend to fully incorporate the scent.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Dividing the Uncolored Soap MixtureKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Dividing the Uncolored Soap Mixture

You are going to separate the uncolored portion of the mixture into two halves. Half of this batch will be swirled with the other colored soap portions.  So, you will want to get a large mixing bowl and add 425 grams of this mixture into another bowl. The remaining portion of the uncolored soap batch will be used to top your soap in a later step. So, you can set this bowl aside for now.

Next, you are going to add the soap colorants to your soap batter. So, you are going to need to get three more small mixing bowls. You will need to add about 425 grams of your scented soap mixture to each of the bowls. Now, you will have your four portions of soap ready to color! So, you will add each one of your small bowls of portioned colorant to each one of your mixing bowls. Then, you can use the stick blender to incorporate the colorant. You will clean the stick blender clean before mixing the next color.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Mixing Your Colored SoapKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Mixing Your Colored Soap

Now, you will need to grab your deep mixing bowl of 425 grams of the white soap. Next, you will need to add the Pink Colorant, Light Green Colorant, and Dark Green Colorant to the white soap in your deep mixing bowl. So, start with the pink soap mixture. You will want to pour small amounts of the soap directly on top of the white soap in various places. The, repeat this pour with each of the green soap portions. Once you are finished, the bowl of soap in front of you will look a bit like a color wheel.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Swirl and Pour the SoapKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Swirl and Pour the Soap

Now that all your colored soap portions are added to this deep mixing bowl, you are going to swirl the colors together and pour the mixture into your soap mold. You will want to make sure that you don’t mix too much, as you want to keep the separate colors. So, you may want to only use one circular swirl. After, you are ready to pour the mixture into the loaf soap mold.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Topping to Your CP SoapKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Topping to Your CP Soap

Lastly, you are going to add the top to your soap loaf. You will need to wait for this white soap portion to cool and thicken before you can add it to your soap. Once your white soap is ready to use, you are going to use your spatula to add this whipped soap to the top of your soap. After you have this uncolored soap added to your soap loaf, you can use your spatula to create peaks and texture. You will not need too much of either the mica dust or the herb. We used less than a gram of each on our soap.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Removing Soap from the MoldKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Removing Soap from the Mold

After 12-48 hours you are ready to remove your soap from the loaf mold. Gently remove the soap from the silicone soap mold. Once you have your finished soap mold removed, you will be ready to add the finishing touches, cut your bars, and wait for the soap to cure.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Finishing TouchesKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Adding the Finishing Touches

Once the cold process soap has been removed from the mold, you are ready to add the final few touches to your soap recipe. First, you can sprinkle of diamond dust mica on to the top of your soap. Also, you can sprinkle on some whole poppy seeds onto the top of this soap loaf. This wholesale cosmetic herb was included to resemble kiwi seeds.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Slicing Your Soap LoafKiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Slicing Your Soap Loaf

Now, you will want to cut your soap loaf into individual bars. You will want to cut your soap before you let your soap cure. Otherwise, your soap bars may be more likely to become too brittle and flake away as you cut. Now, you will want to set up your soap bars in a place where they can cure.

Kiwi Watermelon Soap Recipe: Using Your Finished CP Soap

Of course, you will need to wait for your cold process soap to cure before you can use your homemade soap bars. This can take from 2 and 8 weeks to completely cure. After your soap bars have set up, your soap is ready to use! You can use your soap packaging supplies to store some of your soap bars. Plus, your cp soap bars will be ready to use as well.

Salt Water Taffy Soap Recipe is sure to take you back to your childhood.  Not only does it have a great candy scent, but it also shows you an adorable way to package soap.  We took these fun soaps to a couple soap gatherings over the past couple months and they were a huge hit!  We had many soap makers ask how exactly we made these.  So by popular request here are the instructions for this unique salt water taffy fragranced soap.

FUN Soap Colorant- Neon Orange

Silicone Soap Mold- 4 Loaf Mold

4 Microwave Safe Containers

Scale

Mixing Spoons

Cutting Board

2 drops FUN Soap Colorant- Neon Pink

Total Amounts for Green Soap:

219 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

10 grams Salt Water Taffy Fragrance Oil

3 drops FUN Soap Colorant- Neon Green

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-Recipe

 

Begin with four heat safe bowls.  Place 219 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in each bowl.  Use a microwave to melt the soap.  We recommend melting the soap base 30 seconds at a time until it is completely melted.

 

 

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-RecipeOnce it is melted, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s Salt Water Taffy Fragrance Oil to each bowl.  Stir well to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.

In the first bowl, add three drops of the neon blue soap colorant.  To the second bowl, add two drops of the neon pink colorant.  The third bowl will need four drops of the neon orange colorant.  In last bowl, place three drops of the neon green soap colorant.  Stir each bowl well to incorporate the colors.

 

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-Recipe

Once the color is mixed,  pour your soap.  Pour each color into its own cavity of the mold.  Once the soap has setup, you can go ahead and remove the melt and pour soap from the mold.  Cut it into three equal sections.

Lastly, it is time to wrap your soap.  Using scissors, cut strips of parchment paper.  They need to be 6 inches long and 7 inches wide.  Wrap the soap with the parchment paper and use a twist ties to close the sides.  It will look similar to wrapped piece of salt water taffy.

This recipe is not only simple and fun to make, it also gives you an easy, inexpensive, and creative way to package your soap.  It’s the perfect craft to do with your kids as well!  We hope that you  have as much fun making this recipe as we did!  For even more fragrance fun visit all of our free craft recipes!   Keep watching for even more creative soap and candle making ideas.
