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!

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.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Sanitize and Prepare

Before you begin creating your soap, you will want to make sure that your equipment and work space are ready. So, clean off and sanitize a table or counter top that you can work on. Also, make sure that your equipment, including your microwave, is clean and ready to use. Another important preparation of Melt and Pour Soap is getting the spray bottle of rubbing alcohol ready to use. Finally, we would suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust Layer

First, we are going to create the Graham Cracker Crust Layer for our melt and pour soap. This will be the first layer that we will pour and it will be the bottom layer of our pistachio pudding soap. Also, you will want to get your soap mold ready before we begin melting this first layer. This way your soap won’t set up before you can get the mold ready.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Crust Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
6 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting the Ingredients

Now, you are going to need to weigh the 95 grams of cocoa butter melt and pour soap base. Once you have your soap ready, you are going to use the microwave to melt you soap using 30 second intervals. You will need to check and stir to ensure that your soap doesn’t boil. Once your soap is in a liquid state you are ready to move on to the next step.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

After your soap has melted you are going to add the scented oil. So, weigh and mix in the 4 grams of Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil. Also, you will need to add 4 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is because the fragrance oil may cause some discoloration in your soaps. So, we will use some color stabilizer to make sure that our soap stays looking bright and scrumptious. Once they are both added you will need to mix until they are fully incorporated.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Finishing the First LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Finishing the First Layer

Next, we are going to add the FUN Soap Colorants to the melted soap. For this layer you are going to need 6 drops of the Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops of the Brown Soap Colorant to create the perfect graham cracker crust color. Once these pigments are fully mixed, then you are ready to pour this layer into the square soap mold. Also, remember to spray with rubbing alcohol after this layer has been poured. Once the crust layer has completely set up you are ready to work on creating the next layer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: White Cream Cheese Layer

The Cream Cheese Layer is going to be the second portion you will need to create and pour. While this layer won’t have any color added, the rest of this layer will the same as the bottom crust layer. So, this next layer will be the same size and scent as the previous layer we created.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: White Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting Your Soap

Next, you are going to heat the 93 grams of melt and pour soap. Again, you will want to use the microwave in 30 second intervals. Remember to mix your melting soap, which will help prevent boiling. After your soap base is melted, you are ready to add the scent and color stabilizer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting Your SoapPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting Your Soap

Now that your soap is melted you are ready to add the fragrance oil! So, take 4 grams of the Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil and stir it into your melted soap. Also, you will need to include 4 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to ensure that this layer stays uncolored. Otherwise, you could have some discoloration due to the Vanillin in this fragrance. Since this layer is meant to be a cream cheese color, it won’t look right if the fragrance discolors the soap.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Pouring the Soap

Then, you are going to pour the second layer into your square soap mold. Since you waited to mix this layer until the first layer has set up, you should be ready to pour this layer. First, lightly spray your crust layer with rubbing alcohol. This will help your layers stick to one another. Now you can pour this into the mold and lightly spray the top of this layer with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. Before moving on to the next step, allow this layer time to set up completely.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Pistachio LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Pistachio Layer

Next, we are going to be creating the pistachio layer. This vivid green layer will be the same size as the other two layers, but it will be a different color and use a different kind of melt and pour soap base. But, this portion will be created using a similar process as before.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
2 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting the Soap

Similarly, you are going to need to melt 93 grams of melt and pour soap. However, this layer will use Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap instead of the white soap base we have used before. This will provide a brighter appearance for the pistachio layer. Also, you will still need to melt this soap using 30 second intervals in the microwave and stirring between heating periods.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, we are going to be scenting the third layer of the dessert soap recipe. So, add 4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil to your freshly melted soap. Also, we will need to include 4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer because this fragrance oil has a slight discoloration. If we didn’t use a color stabilizer, then the soap may appear more dull or even slightly brown. While this wouldn’t hurt the cleanliness of the bar, it could make it look less like pistachio pudding.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Coloring and Pouring the Soap

Now you are going to be coloring your liquid soap. So, put two drops of the Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant into the soap. You will want to mix well to blend in the ingredients from the previous step. Once it looks like everything is evenly dispersed, you will need to pour this soap into your soap mold. Just remember to spray with rubbing alcohol before and after you pour this layer to make sure your layers stay together and to release air bubbles.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping Layer

Lastly, we are going to be creating and adding the topping to our pistachio pudding soap! This will include both the whipped cream fluffy and the toasted, sliced almonds. The whipped cream topping will be made with a whipped soap base. Also, we will use citrus peel herbs to stand in for the sliced almonds.

 

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping Layer’s Weights and Amounts

46 grams Whipped Soap Base
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
46 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 grams Vegetable Glycerin
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting the Whipped Soap BasePistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting the Whipped Soap Base

First, you are going to need to measure 46 grams of the Whipped Soap Base into a large mixing bowl. Then, you will need to add in both 4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil and 4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Fluffing the Whipped Soap BasePistachio Soap Making Recipe: Fluffing the Whipped Soap Base

After the soap base has been scented, you are going to want to use a hand mixer to fluff your whipped soap base. This will serve to incorporate the scented oil, color stabilizer, and 4 grams Vegetable Glycerin to create a better texture for the top of your dessert soap. Once you mix everything together well, you can move on to the next step.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Melt and Pour SoapPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Melt and Pour Soap

Next, you are going to be adding the melt and pour soap base to your whipped soap. So, measure out 46 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base. Now you are going to need to melt your soap using 30 second intervals. Once your soap is melted, pour it all into your mixing bowl. After everything is in the bowl, use the hand mixer again to whip everything into a frosting consistency.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe:Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Frosting Your Pistachio Pudding

Now that your whipped topping is fluffy, you can add it to the tops of your soaps. We recommend that you work quickly because the soap is going to set up fast. First, quickly spray the tops of your soaps with rubbing alcohol. Then, take a spatula to spread the whipped soap frosting all over the tops of your bars.

Finally, you are read to sprinkle on the sliced almond topping.
