So, you will want to fill the 8 ounce spray bottle with vinegar and set it nearby until it is needed.

While you are waiting for your lye solution and cosmetic oil mixtures to both cool down to room temperature, you can begin to prepare the four soap colorants that you will need for this bath and body recipe. So, you are going to need to get four separate mixing bowls that are about medium sized. In each of these medium mixing bowls you are going to add one of the colorant mixtures for the different potions of the soap batter.

First, you are going to need one of the medium mixing bowls to hold the white colorant for this soap. In this bowl you will need to add 7 grams of the Titanium Dioxide.

So, you are going to need to add 6 grams of the Yelp Yellow FUN Soap Colorant, 2 grams of the Jailhouse Red FUN Soap Colorant, and 3 drops of the Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant.

Next, you are going to be filling the soap mold with your portioned soap batter. So, you will need to retrieve the large rectangle tray mold. You will be filling up your wholesale soap mold by pouring only into only two of the corners. These corners will need to be diagonal from one another. Then, you will need to choose two of your colors to start with to pour into the corners. You will need to pour one into each of the corners at the same time. Then, switch the bowls between your hands and pour these colors at the same time. Next, you will grab the two remaining colors, pour one into each corner, switch hands, and pour again. You will need to repeat this process until the mold is filled.

Spinning Your CP SoapSpinning Your CP Soap

As soon as you have your soap mold filled, you are going to spin the soap to create the design for this cp soap recipe. So, you will need to gently transfer the soap mold from the table and onto the lazy Susan. Then, you can begin to slowly spin the lazy Susan in a single direction. This spinning will begin to move your soap batter and create wavy lines. You will want to continue to swirl the soap until you feel that your design has enough swirl. Once you are satisfied with the design of your swirl soap, you can stop spinning the lazy Susan.

Finishing Your Spin Swirl Soap

Now, your cold process soap is nearly ready to use! All you have left to do is allow your soap the time to set up and cure. After 24-43 hours you can remove the soap from the cosmetic mold. Now you can slice your soap along the lines that were created from the soap mold. Then, you will need to let your soap rest for 4-6 weeks before using. After this cure time, you can finally use your beautiful cold process soap!

You will want to wipe off your stick blender and use it to fully incorporate the colorant.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Filling Your Squeeze BottlesTiger Stripe Soap: Filling Your Squeeze Bottles

You are going to use these two colored soap portions to fill up your squeeze bottles. First, you are going to use your black colored soap portion and pour your soap into the bottle.

You will want to create a soap pattern that is a similar design to the swirled soap we are creating in the picture.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Finish Your CP Soap Recipe

Finally, your homemade soap with lye is done and nearly ready for you to use!

Grapefruit BenefitsGrapefruit Benefits

Are grapefruits good for you? We’d say yes, as there are all kinds of wonderful grapefruit benefits that you can enjoy! If you want to try out the Natures Garden Grapefruit Powder on your skin, you are sure to find some great benefits for your body. In fact, you can include this wholesale herb in many different bath and body recipes that will care for your skin and hair. Plus, there are some great medicinal benefits that have been found to be gained from eating this fresh fruit. Further, there are many ways to incorporate this fruit into your diet, through either homemade recipes or even just eating the plain fruit. So, you can use this natural cosmetic blog to find out more about the grapefuit herb and the other properties of grapefruits.

Grapefruit Benefits: Growing ConditionsGrapefruit Benefits: Growing Conditions

First of all, grapefruit trees will require a temperate or tropical climate. These conditions are ideal because these plants need lots of sunlight and warm conditions. In fact, they need it to be relatively warm both during the day as well as at night. So, more tropical regions may be best, but they can survive in temperate regions with some extra care. Also, the grapefruit trees like to have loamy soil that drains well.
Another thing you will want to pay attention to is the amount of space available for your tree to grow. When planting the tree try to pick a place on your land that will provide the most sun, some good winter protection, and at least twelve feet of space from buildings or driveways. After planting, you will want to water your sapling every couple of days. After about a week or so, you can start to water deeply just once a week. However, you may want to water more often during drought periods.

Grapefruit Benefits: Tips for Harvesting Grapefruits

During the first three years, you won’t have a harvest from a grapefruit tree. Instead, your grapefruit tree should direct its energy into growth. So, you may want to remove any small fruits that you see growing before the three year mark. Although you may be eager to try your homegrown fruit, picking these early fruits will ensure your tree grows to be strong. Once your tree is old enough, your fruits will be ready to be harvested in the fall. You will be able to tell they are ripe by their color. If the grapefruits have become a yellow or gold color, then they are ready to pick.

But, anyone that prefers their grapefruit on the sweeter side, like me, can leave the fruits on the tree a bit longer. This will allow them to get a bit larger and sweeter. However, use caution, they can be left on the tree for too long. An overripe grapefruit will appear lumpy and should be discarded.

Grapefruit Benefits: Industry Uses

There are all kinds of reasons to use grapefruit in a wide variety of products and recipes. First, you can use the abundance of vitamins and minerals available in this fruit to promote your health. Plus, you can incorporate more grapefruit though all kinds of delicious recipes.

Studies have shown that the vitamins and minerals in grapefruits can be useful when it comes to getting over a cold, protecting against inflammation, and strengthening the protective barrier of your skin. Also, grapefruit can be useful for reducing your risk for diabetes. Diabetes occurs when the body has built up a resistance to insulin, which leads to higher insulin and sugar levels in the blood. So, this fruit has evidence that it can help reduce insulin levels and resistance to help get your body on track.

Another potential benefit of grapefruit is improved heart health. It is thought that the high potassium content in this fruit will relax your blood vessels and arteries. So, grapefruit should be able to help reduce your blood pressure and lessen the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Plus, there is evidence that grapefruit can be useful for helping to treat fatigue and insomnia. It has been found that the tryptophan in grapefruit is useful for helping you get sleepy and have a great night’s sleep.

However, people on medications should contact their doctor to ensure that there won’t be any interactions. For certain medications, grapefruit can cause overdose or increase side effects. This interaction can occur as grapefruit contains substances that can inhibit an enzyme that is used to metabolize certain medications. So, anyone taking medications like immunosuppressants, statins, Carbamazepine, Indivavir, Bensodiazepines, and many calcium channel blockers should contact their doctor before increasing their grapefruit intake.

Soap Making Terms

If you want to learn about different soaping methods and get help for potential problems, then it helps to know common soap making terms. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, you are likely to come across something new with your batches at least once. So, we are here to help you understand what to do and how to solve any soap-making issues.

Soap Making Terms: How Much Fragrance Oil Can I Add to Soap?

While you should always check the usage rate for each individual fragrance, the maximum that we recommend is 5%. Sometimes you can a scent where the IFRA sheet allows more and you can do more if you’d like. After you know the usage rate, you just need to do some simple multiplication to figure out how much scent you need.

Formula: Weight of Soap x Usage Rate = Weight of Fragrance Oil
Example: 912 grams of soap x 0.05 (which is a 5% usage rate) = 45.6 grams of fragrance

Soap Making Terms: Why Did My Soap Turn Brown?

Often fragrance oils that contains a high amount of Vaniilin will turn soap brown. Also, the color will be a darker brown with scented oils with higher amounts of Vanillin. We can use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to reduce these effects and still use the scent. Since this ingredient is added to provide a vanilla scent, strong vanilla fragrance oils will almost always turn soap brown without the color stabilizer.

Soap Making Terms: Can I Use Essential Oils in Soap Making?

Yes, essential oils can be used to scent soap. We find that essential oils hold up better in MP soap than in soap made from scratch. This is because the saponification process can cook off the essential oil, which doesn’t have middle notes to anchor the scent. You may have some scent after the soaps cure, but it won’t be as strong as it is in MP soap.

Soap Making Terms: How Much Essential Oil Can I Use in Soap?

This can be different for each essential oil, so you will need to check the IFRA sheet for the usage rate. Then, you can figure out how much you need using the same method as you would for fragrance oils.

Soap Making Terms: How Do You Make Soap White?

You can add titanium dioxide to soaps to make them white. In fact, many of our white soap bases use this ingredient. If you wanted, you could use this ingredient to turn your clear soaps to white.

Soap Making Terms: What is Melt and Pour Soap Making?Soap Making Terms: What is Melt and Pour Soap Making?

Another option for soap making is melt and pour soap. This method starts with a soap base that has already gone through the saponification process. So, you cut need to cut and melt the amount your need before you are ready to add colorants, fragrance, or herbs. Then, you can pour the melted soap into a mold and spray the top with rubbing alcohol. As soon as the soap is hardened, it is ready to use!

Soap Making Terms: How Much Melt and Pour Soap Will I Need for My Mold?

For each ounce by volume in your mold you will need 31 grams of soap. Say the soap mold will hold 16 ounces, you will need 496 grams of soap

Formula: Constant Value for Soap Needed to Fill Mold x Volume of Mold = Weight of Soap
Example:
31 grams per ounce x 16 ounce mold = 196 grams of MP soap

Soap Making Terms: How Long Should Melt and Pour Soap Stay in the Mold?

This can vary based on the size of soap you are creating. Smaller soaps will take less time compared to bigger soaps. Just make sure that they are hardened all the way before you remove them. Also, you should be able to feel that the mold is no longer warm to touch.

Soap Making Terms: How Do I Get My Melt and Pour Soap Out of the Mold?

While you should be able to hold your molds upside down and lightly push, sometimes they get stuck. If you place your soaps in the refrigerator for a short amount of time, this should make it easier for you to remove your mp soap.

Soap Making Terms: How Do I Get Fingerprints Off My Melt and Pour Soap?

Sometimes when you are removing your soaps from the mold, you can transfer a fingerprint. Just use some rubbing alcohol to dampen a cotton swab and  gently swab the fingerprint. It should begin to fade as you do this.

Soap Making Terms: Can Melt and Pour Soap Be Used Right Away?

Of course! The saponification process is already complete before you get your soap base. So, there is no active lye to worry about. This means that you can use your soaps as soon as they harden.

Soap Making Terms: Why Is My Melt and Pour Soap Sweating?

There are a few reasons why your soap would sweat. First, it could be due to adding too much oil. Whether it is fragrance oil or carrier oil, the soap can only hold on to so much before the oil begins to leak out to create beads on the surface. More often, it is due to the soap drawing moisture from the air. Since your soap base uses vegetable glycerin, a humectant, it will draw moisture to it. Although this is great for you skin, it can lead to your soap sweating . However, you can prevent the latter by wrapping your soap as soon as it comes out of the mold. This way it can’t pull moisture from the air.

 

Soap Making Terms: What is Hot Process Soap Making?Soap Making Terms: What is Hot Process Soap Making?

Another way to make soap from scratch is hot process soap. This process is very similar to cold process soapmaking. However, in this method you will have a heat source to speed up the saponification process. You can use a crock pot or stove top to heat your soap mixture. After, you can technically use the bars immediately. However, letting them cure a week will provide you with harder, milder bars.

Soap Making Terms: Does Natures Garden Offer Any Hot Process Soap Recipes with Shea Butter?

Yes, we have a few! For example, we have our Manly Soap Recipe, the Beard Soap Recipe, and more that you can find under the Hot Process Soap Recipes page!

Soap Making Terms: How Long Do You Have to Wait to Use Hot Process Soap?

Yes. Although you don’t have to wait as long for your soaps to cure, there is still some lye left that needs to react. Typically, you will need to wait 1-2 week(s) before using your hp soap.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Rebatch Mean?

If you want to redo a soap batch or add more ingredients, then this is a great idea for you! It is common to rebatch to correct issues like seizing or forgotten ingredients. Also, this can be done to add ingredients that wouldn’t react well during the saponification process, like natural exfoliates or essential oils. First, take the soaps that you aren’t necessarily pleased with and grate them into pieces. Place these pieces in a crock pot and melt them with milk, water, or another liquid to prevent scotching. Also, add any additional oils that you want in these soaps. Allow you batch to reheat for one hour at which point it will by thick. After, add the color, scent, and herbs before scooping this soap into a mold.

Soap Making Terms: What is Cold Process Soap Making?Soap Making Terms: What is Cold Process Soap Making?

This process is one of a few that are refereed to as making soap from scratch because in uses water, lye, and oils to create bars of soap. Another key characteristic of this method is that you don’t need outside heat, as the lye provide enough heat for saponification. Once trace occurs, you are able to add colorants, scented oils, and herbs can be added at this point. After 24 hours, you can remove the soap from the mold and cut. However, you must let your soap cure for a period of 4-6 weeks.

Soap Making Terms: What is Lye in Soap Making?

Lye is a caustic base that is a key component for soap, as it drives the saponification process. It is sometimes referred to as sodium hydroxide for bar soaps and potassium hydroxide for liquid soaps.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Saponification Mean?

This is the process of lye reacting with the oils/fats/butters to produce soap. Saponification will produce both the soap and the glycerin in the soap.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Cure Time Mean?

Cure time is the period where the soap finishes the soaponification process until there is no more active lye present in the bars.

Soap Making Terms: What Does the Term Trace Mean in Soap Making?

In soaping, trace is when the lye water and the oils/butters have been fully combined. You will know that you’ve hit trace because the batter will thicken to a pudding-like consistency. Also, you can check to see whether you are at trace by using a spatula to “trace” a line of soap in the batter. You will notice that the line will not immediately disappear and you can see a trace of the soap you drizzled in.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Light Trace Mean in Soap Making?

Light trace is the point right before your soap comes to trace. You will begin to see a trace, but it won’t stay for more than a few seconds. So, the batter is about to hit trace where it will be thick enough to see the soap for a bit longer.

Soap Making Terms: How Long Does It Take for Soap Batter to Get to Trace?

The time is takes to get to trace will vary between batches for a number of reasons. The ingredients in a recipe can lead to different times. Also, fragrance oils and some soap additives can accelerate or slow trace in your batch.

Soap Making Terms: What Does Seize Mean in Soap Making?

If your soap seizes, then it means that your soap has gone through saponification enough that the batter is beginning to turn from liquid to solid. While this isn’t bad on its own, it makes it impossible to pour soap that is still in the bowl. This hardening soap that hasn’t yet made it to the mold will be too thick to mix and, at best, will be chunky in the mold.

Soap Making Terms: Why Do I Have Lye Pockets in My Cold Process Soap?

If you use too much lye in your soap recipe, then you can
Lye pockets can form in cold process soap most often when too much lye is used. However, it could also be a recipe that wasn’t properly formulated, an oil was left out, the soap seized, or even when the lye solution was not fully mixed. If the lye was not completely saponified you can always rebatch the soap and hot process the soap adding additional oil. Also, it is possible that it could be used in recipes such as laundry soaps that can utilize soap with a higher pH level.

Soap Making Terms: Can I Change the Soap Making Recipes?

Unlike many other bath and body recipes, you can’t simply swap out oils in the Natures Garden formulated recipe. Each oil has a certain saponification value that determines how much lye it will react with. So, switching an oil could result in your batch being lye heavy. Even if you wait longer to cure, there won’t be enough oils to react with the lye and the bars will irritate the skin or even cause burning. Instead, use SoapCalc to determine what you would have to change to get the recipe that you want!
