Coconut Oil is one of the most popular oils that is used in soap making. It’s very affordable, easy to obtain and it can be very good for the skin and hair. If you love making soap, or are new to soap making, take a look at some of Nature’s Garden’s coconut soap recipes. Not only will you be inspired by the creativity, but you skin will be happy and healthy looking!

Coconut oil is perfect for smoothing out dry, frizzy hair and it is also good for nourishing dry, split ends. If you have a sensitivity to products that contain a lot of chemicals or fragrances, this is a good, natural alternative to lotion or body cream and of course, it’s perfect for hydrating that itchy, dry skin. Since coconut oil contains Vitamin E, it is also perfect for helping to delay the look of wrinkles.

As you may know, there are two types of coconut oil. Nature’s Garden offers Coconut Oil-76 and Fractionated Coconut Oil. Both work equally well in all bath and body products. You may notice that fractionated coconut oil does not solidify like regular coconut oil-76 does. That is because the fatty triglycerides from the oil have been removed and what is left is the clear, liquid form of the coconut oil. This type of coconut oil is perfect for using in massage oils, as a carrier oil for lip gloss or essential oils. Any time you want your product to stay at as a liquid, fractionated coconut oil is the perfect answer.

Coconut Oil-76 is a solid form of and only turns liquid in temperatures of 76 degrees Fahrenheit or above. Coconut oil is popular in any type of soap making, bath and body products and even in cooking. It is also very obtainable in grocery stores, soap making supply stores and at any type of big box store. It also very affordable, which makes it perfect for making soap. Both types of coconut oil will give your soap a wonderful, bubbly lather and can also contribute to making your soap hard and white. Coconut Oil-76 is perfect for any type of cosmetic product or bath and body product, such as a body scrub, that you want to have a solid form to.

Candy Cane fragrance worked perfectly in our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, separation, or accelerating! However, we did experience some discoloring to a brown. You can use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help prevent the oxidation of the fragrance. Also, the scent retention was strong and true throughout the cure time!

Christmas Cabernet is a soaper’s dream! During our cold process soap testing, there was no ricing, accelerating, or separating. Although it did turn a shade of olive brown, using a Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help prevent this. Also, the scent retention was incredibly strong even after its cure time. This fragrance is also body safe and makes some wonderful smelling bath and body products. It also worked equally well in all soy and vegetable waxes.

If you enjoy making bath and body products, check out our Wine Sugar Scrub recipe. Sugar scrubs are incredibly popular and easy to make.

Christmas Thyme fragrance oil is perfect for those that want a pine fragrance that isn’t overwhelming! Definite top notes of cinnamon, bayberries and apples along with the undertones of pine and thyme. A perfect balance that smells fresh and crisp!

Christmas Thyme is one of the few fragrances that is not body safe, therefore we did no cold process soap testing, nor any testing in bath and body products. However, this is a wonderful scent for those looking for candle fragrances that have wonderful cold and hot throws. This fragrance also makes a perfect room freshener or potpourri and incense.

If you are looking for a recipe to create for those that like potpourri, check out our Christmas Liquid Potpourri Recipe.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance Oil

What in the world is a Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins? This fragrance oil by Natures Garden was inspired by one of our favorite movies of all times – “ELF”.  At one point in the movie, Buddy mentions that he feels like a “Cotton headed ninny muggin”; AKA…an ELF Airhead.  This made us think, “What would a cotton headed ninny muggin smell like?”  Cotton headed ninny muggin fragrance oil begins with sweet, buttery, creamy coconut and vanilla frosting; leading to middle notes of powdery heliotrope and spicy hints; and sits on a powerful vanilla base. A very yummy smelling cotton head you will be!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Country Christmas Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Country Christmas Fragrance Oil

Our Country Christmas fragrance oil is a truly fantastic scent that is a blend of bayberries, cranberries, and apples, with spicy nuances of nutmeg and cloves with a top note of orange zests. This is another fragrance oil that makes me picture an old fashioned Christmas in a warm, cozy farmhouse or cabin. 

Country Christmas fragrance oil was not tested in cold process soap due to the fact that the maximum body safeness level was very low. If you do choose to soap with it, please try to stick to the guideline of the percentage we have allowed for. However, this fragrance is perfect in candles, wax melts, and any type of room freshening recipe!

With a country Christmas comes pictures of rustic decorations, home smells and family gatherings. We developed an easy decoration that uses our Country Christmas fragrance! Our Scented Twine Christmas Ornaments are a fun, easy craft to create! Simply wrap twine around an inflated balloon, coat the twine in scented glue, allow to dry.

Calendula,  also known as Calendula officinalis, is a very well known therapeutic herb. Since it is native to Northern Mediterranean countries, it is used in many of their food dishes.  Calendula is an annual flower, which refers to the tendency it has to bloom accordingly with the calendar. Calendula is a modern Latin diminutive of the word calendae, which means “little clock” or “little calendar.”  It usually blooms along with the full moon or at least once a month. The more commonly known name, pot marigold or the nickname “Mary’s Gold”, refers to the Virgin Mary. These flowers are used in some Catholic ceremonies to honor her.

This herb has a great number of uses in many different industries, including cosmetics. Egyptians considered the herb to have rejuvenating powers. Also, in the Hindu world, the people adorned the statues of their gods in their temples with the flower.

So what are the uses of calendula? Well, there are a multitude of uses for this gorgeous, sunny yellow flower! It is used in food as a colorant for some foods, such as cheese or butter. Also, it is completely edible and makes a wonderful addition in salads, soups or even stews. This flower can also be made into a tea that is chock full of healthy benefits for your insides!

Medicinally, this flower has been used for centuries! As far back as the Civil War and even during  World War II, calendula flowers were used on battle fields to keep open wounds from hemorrhaging. It was used as an antiseptic to help clean wounds. Calendula is best known for it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties.

We also have a few important ingredients in this recipe that are also beneficial to the skin. The first two are the base of any bath bomb recipe: citric acid and baking soda. Combined, these two will give your bath bomb its fizz. Seperately, they are very gentle cleansing agents. Baking Soda has been around since ancient times. It can be found dissolved in many mineral springs and is a component (the natural form is called nahcolite) of the mineral natron. Ancient Egyptians used natron as a soap.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Bentonite Clay PowderCalendula Bath Bomb: Bentonite Clay Powder

Our next ingredient is Bentonite Clay Powder. This is a very popular ingredient in creating bath and body products. Bentonite clay is used in face mask formulations to help clean impurities from the skin. In soap making, it can be added to cold process soap during trace to help oily skin. It can help thicken lotions and aid in emulsifying the ingredients. Also, adding bentonite clay to bath bomb recipes helps to make your bath bombs harder.

  • 10 grams Bentonite Clay Powder
  • 18 grams Safflower Oil
  • 18 grams Floral Bouquet Fragrance Oil
  • 5 grams Whole Calendula Flowers

Calendula Bath Bomb: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your recipe, it’s always important to take a few steps to help your creating go along smoothly. Clean and sanitize your work area. Also, give your equipment and packing materials a cleaning and sanitizing. We suggest wearing an apron, gloves and other protective clothing when preparing your recipe. One last step, fill your bullet bottle with witch hazel and place a sprayer on top. We will be using this when we start to form the bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Prepping the Dry IngredientsCalendula Bath Bomb: Prepping the Dry Ingredients

Our first step will be mixing the dry ingredients. So in your first bowl, after placing it on the scale and taring out the weight, you will weigh the dry ingredients. To the bowl add 300 grams of Citric Acid, 600 grams of Baking Soda and 10 grams of Bentonite Clay Powder.

 

 

Calendula Bath Bomb: Mixing the Dry IngredientsCalendula Bath Bomb: Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Now, with gloved hands you will mix the dry ingredients together, breaking up any clumps that you come across. This bowl will be set aside as we move on to our wet ingredients.

 

 

 

Calendula Bath Bomb: Prepping the Wet Ingredients

Our second step will be the wet ingredients. To a second bowl, after placing it on the scale and taring out the weight, you will weigh in the wet ingredients.  So to the bowl add in 18 grams of Safflower Oil and 18 grams of Floral Bouquet fragrance oil.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Mixing the Wet Ingredients

Now that your wet ingredients are together, give these a nice stir making sure that the oils are combined well.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Adding the Wet IngredientsCalendula Bath Bomb: Adding the Wet Ingredients

Next, you will be adding the wet ingredients to the dry. Once the oils are all added into the powders, used your gloved hands to thoroughly mix the bath bomb ingredients together. Continue mixing until you are confident that you have everything completely and evenly mixed.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Dividing the Mixture

You will now need two mixing bowls. You will need to divide you bath bomb mixture into two equal parts. Place each half in an empty bowl.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Adding the Calendula Flowers and PowdersCalendula Bath Bomb: Adding the Calendula Flowers and Powders

Now that our bath bomb mixture is evenly seperated, place the first bowl on the scale and tare out the weight. Weigh in 5 grams of calendula powder.  Remove this bowl, set it aside and place the second bowl on the scale. Tare out the weigh and add in 5 grams of the whole calendula flowers. You can remove this from the scale also.

 

 

Calendula Bath Bomb: Using the Witch HazelCalendula Bath Bomb: Using the Witch Hazel

Now that we have everything add in we will be using the witch hazel to help create and form the bath bomb mixture into a dough. Starting with your first bowl, begin spraying the mixture with the witch hazel and using your hands, mix the ingredients together, misting as you go. You should have a crumbly, dough like texture when you are done. Next, you will do the same to the second bowl, misting with the witch hazel and combining the ingredients until you have reached the crumbly dough stage. You are now ready to move on to creating the bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Before Making the Bath Bombs

Before you start adding the dough to the bath bomb mold, take a small amount of whole calendula flowers and place them in the bottom of each one half of the molds you will be using. This will add a pretty touch of interest to your finished bath bomb.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Filling the First Half of the  Bath Bomb Molds

Now you can move on to creating the bath bomb. These bath bombs will be layered. So, add a small amount of the mixture that contains the calendula powder. Then, add a layer that contains the whole calendula flowers. You will repeat this process filling one half of each mold.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Filling the Second Half of the Mold

For the second half, it will not have the extra calendula flowers added in. It will simply be the dough mixture. So continuing the layering process and fill the second half until it is completely full, just as you did with the first half of the mold.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Fitting the Two Halves Together

The last step will be fitting the two halves of the mold together, to form the bomb. Take both halves of the bath bomb. Next, mist each half lightly with witch hazel. This will help the bath bomb adhere together. Now, press the two halves together until the mold is closed. Continue filling and layering the remaining bath bomb molds and pressing them together. This recipe will give you 6 bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Letting the Bath Bombs Set UpCalendula Bath Bomb: Letting the Bath Bombs Set Up

When you have completed all the bath bombs, you will allow them to set up and harden. This can take anywhere form 24 to 48 hours. It will all depend end on the humidity of your environment. We do suggest that creating your bath bombs is best done in a cool, dry area. Also, keep them in the same cool, dry area while they set up. Creating your recipe in an area that is humid will make the bath bombs difficult to form and set up.

Once your bombs have hardened, you may leave them in the mold, which makes packaging for selling or giving away, easy and fast. However, you may remove them from the mold and package them however you choose.  When your ready to use your Calendula Bath Bomb, simply place it in a nice, warm bath and relax!

Common Hot Process Soap Questions

Common Hot Process Soap QuestionsCommon Hot Process Soap Questions

Although hot process soap recipes have some things in common with the cold process soap recipes, there are a few new steps that can be confusing. So, we at Natures Garden felt it would be useful to answer some common hot process soap questions that our customers have asked us. This way we can equip you with all the soap making supplies and information that you need to make all kinds of wonderful homemade soaps!

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: What are the Hot Process Stages?

First, melt your oils and butters in a crock pot. Then, create your lye solution and add it to your crock pot. Use a stick blend to mix to trace and cover the crock pot. After about 15 minutes, stir the batter and replace the lip. Continue to stir every 15 minutes until the soap batter has the consistency of mashed potatoes. Then, place the soap in a mold and allow it to set up for 24 hours. After, remove from mold, cut, and allow it to cure for about 1-2 weeks. Although the bar may technically be safe to use, allowing it to cure will provide a harder, better quality bar of soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Can I Use the Pan or Crockpot I Used for Soapmaking for Food?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Can I Use the Pan or Crockpot I Used for Soapmaking for Food?

No, you should never return your soaping equipment to the kitchen. So, make sure that you use a pan or crock pot that you aren’t overly fond of for your hot process soap recipes. Hopefully, you can find a pan or crock pot that is cheap or old to use for soap. Once anything in your kitchen is used for soapmaking, it should be moved into your soap making supplies permanently.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Do I Have to Use a Crock Pot for Hot Process Soap?

No, you don’t have to use a crock pot to be successful in making hot process soap. Many people like to use an old crock pot, but if you aren’t able to dedicate one to soap making it is okay to use something different. In fact, you can use a stove top and it works just as well. Honestly, your hot process soap will work just fine as long as your soap has a constant heat source.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: What Are The Hot Process Soap Benefits?

Since hot process soap has some similar steps to cold process soap, hp soap has many of the same benefits. Of course, for both methods, you can control all of the ingredients to avoid ingredient that may trigger allergies or irritate skin conditions. But, the biggest thing that sets the hp soap making method apart from the cold process soap is the cure time. Since hot process soap uses a heat source, like a crock pot or pan, that keeps the soap batter at higher temperatures. These higher temperatures will speed up the saponification process. So, your hot process soaps won’t need to cure as long as they would if they were made using the cp soap method.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Hot Process Soap Recipes?

Natures Garden offers a few different recipes for hot process soap that you can choose between. We have regular hp soap recipes, laundry soap recipes, and even a beard soap recipe. So, there are a lot of fun ideas for making hot process soaps! You can find all of our recipes under Hot Process Soap Recipes on the Free Recipes and Classes page.

 

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: When Do I Color Hot Process Soap?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: When Do I Color Hot Process Soap?

You will want to add your soap colorant after the batch is done cooking. So, mix in the coloring once the soap is a mashed potato consistency. Also, you can still do multiple colors with this method. Just split your cooked soap into different bowls and mix in color to each. Once the soap is colored, you can add more ingredients or scoop the soap to the mold.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: When Do I Add Fragrance to Hot Process Soap?

Again, you will want to add your fragrance oil after the soap has fully cooked and before you stick the soap in the mold. So, you can add your scent right after you add your colorant.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: How Long Do I Need to Cook Hot Process Soap?

The cooking time can vary depending on both the individual hot process soap recipe and the soaping ingredients used. Also, the crock pot or pan that you are using can affect the time, too. Some cases take about an hour and other instances may take a few hours. However, you can tell that your soap is done based on consistency. As your soap heats it will begin to get thicker, which you will notice as you are periodically checking the batter. At one point the soap batter will go through a gel phase, which gives a gel-like appearance. Right after this, the soap will get a mashed potato consistency. At this point, you are ready to scoop the soap into your soap mold.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why is My Hot Process Soap Changing Color?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why is My Hot Process Soap Changing Color?

There are a few reasons why a soap would discolor. Most often, this kind of change is due to the vanillin content in a fragrance oil. This ingredient is what gives scented oils its vanilla notes. So, this type of discoloration can be minimized by using vanilla white color stabilizer. basically, all of the brown discoloration caused by vanillin and oxidation. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer will slow the oxidation of vanillin. However, there are many other ingredients in fragrance oils that can cause discoloration that we can’t reduce or control. This means that it is possible that this additive won’t solve discoloration if the vanillin content isn’t very high. You can find out whether a fragrance discolors and if its maintainable by looking in the description for that scented oil. Another reason that your soaps could change color is herbs, which can oxide over time. This will fade the initial color of the herb and likely become a dull color or change color.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap Separating In My Mold?

If your hp soap is separating in the soap mold, then it is a sign that the soap needed to cook longer. No need to rebatch. All you have to do is scoop the soap back into the crock pot or the pan and cook for a bit longer. It could also be caused by a recipe that wasn’t formulated properly or was not weighed out properly.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: How Long Do You Have to Wait to Use Hot Process Soap?

While hot process soap shortens the cure time, you still have a bit of waiting left to do. You will want to let your soap bars set for about 1-2 weeks, depending on your batch this could vary.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap Cracking?

Overheating can cause your hot process soap to crack in some places or develop strange patterns. Occasionally, it will just be a simple crack in the soap and other times you can end up with soap with peaks and craters. Sometimes soap can even get an appearance referred to as alien brains, which is kind of looks like a brain pattern.  Also, certain ingredients can lead to an increase in heating, like additives with natural sugars. So, you are more likely to overheat with milk, wine, honey, or fruit and veggie purees. Not only can these ingredients heat you soap, but they have the potential to cause a volcano effect in your soap. So, be sure to use caution for those ingredients with sugars.  

 

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Any Hot Process Soap Recipes with Shea Butter?Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Does Natures Garden Offer Any Hot Process Soap Recipes with Shea Butter?

Yes, we do! We have quite a few free soap recipes for hot process soap, which includes the Beard Soap Recipe, the Game On HP Soap Recipe, and the Apricotie Hottie Soap Recipe. If you would like to see more of these types of soap-making recipes, then you can check out our Free Recipes and Classes page under the Hot Process Soap Recipes section.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why is My Hot Process Soap Hard and Crumbly?

If you have soap that is too hard and crumbly, then stick around to learn about why your hot process soap would be this way and how you can fix it. Also, anyone that wants to learn how to make their hot process soap more fluid may want to start here. First, your soap batter could be over cooked, which makes the soap dry and hard. Alternatively, the recipe could contain too many hard oils, which could be saved by re-batching with more soft oils. Or, it could be that you didn’t add enough water. Also, it could be that an ingredient was forgotten or the recipe wasn’t formulated correctly. Another possibility is that there is too much of a soap additive, like sodium lactate, that increased the hardness too much. Often, you can simply fix the mistake and rebatch your soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: How Do I Rebatch Hot Process Soap?

Have you ever wondered can you melt a bar of soap and remold? It can be tempting to just scrap a failed batch of soap and start over. If you feel the same, then you will definitely want to hear about rebatching soap. Whether you forgot an ingredient, a hot process soap rebatch is a great idea for you to try. Plus, rebatching your old soap is a fairly simple process. First, grate your old soap and put these pieces in a crock pot. Then, you will need to melt this down with water and whatever you wanted to include in these soaps. If you want a more detailed set of instructions, then you can look at a previous blog on How to Rebatch soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap Soft and Crumbly?

Also, there are a few reasons why your soap could turn out soft and crumbly. One reason could be that you have too many soft oils and need more hard oils added to the recipe. Also, it could be an issue of not having enough lye for the amount of liquid added. So, it is possible that you may need to formulate the recipe again, which can be made easier with the help of SoapCalc. If your recipe is fine, then you may just need to cook your soap a bit longer. Another option is that you could’ve accidentally added a soap ingredient twice. While you may have a missing ingredient or need to add some different ingredients, it is okay because you should be able to rebatch and save the soap.

Common Hot Process Soap Questions: Why Is My Hot Process Soap So Soft? I Did Everything Right and It Is Still Soft.

When you first unmold and cut your hp soap, it may be softer than you like. It is common to be a little soft initially for hot process soaps. However, the soap will harden as it cures. Although the soap is safe to use, the bars after about a week, they may still be too soft. For hard soaps, we suggest allowing your soap to cure for 3-4 weeks.

So, lightly spray the top of your previous layer with rubbing alcohol. After you carefully pour your entire mixture into the mold, lightly spray the top with rubbing alcohol to release air bubbles.

Afterward, add 3 grams of your fragrance oil and 2 drops of the Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant. Also, add 3 grams of Vegetable Glycerin to make the soap more flexible.

Finally, you are ready to add your whipped topping to your soap loaf. First, lightly spray the top of your layered soap with rubbing alcohol.

Once the top of your soap is covered, you are ready to decorate!

Lastly, you are ready to decorate the top of your soap. You will want to sprinkle both your red and blue Epsom salt sprinkles over the top of your soap. Also, add your embed starts and blue curls. We chose to add two blue curls on either side of each red star, but you can decorate them in a different way if you’d like. After you have your soap decorated and the whipped topping has set up, you can remove your soap from the mold and begin cutting it into bars.
