When working with lye, always make sure to wear your protective glasses, mask, and gloves! Start by preparing your lye water. Measure and weigh out 345 grams of distilled water and 125 grams of lye. Carefully pour the lye into the water. Never pour water into lye as this can cause an explosion! Mix thoroughly and set your lye water aside to cool.

While you’re waiting for that to cool, go ahead and get your butters and oils ready. Measure and weigh out 181 grams of Palm Oil, 272 grams of Olive Oil, 181 grams of Coconut Oil, and 272 grams of Shea Butter. Melt them down completely and set them aside to cool as well.

You can also prepare your colors as you’re waiting for those to cool. In three separate bowls, measure out 11 drops of Neon Pink colorant, 10 drops of Ultramarine, and 10 drops of Neon Blue. In another bowl, measure out 11 grams of Titanium Dioxide and pour in just a little bit of oil. Mix them together until it has a become a paste-like consistency.

You can also prepare your diving tool. We have used just regular cardboard to divide our soap, however you can also use a straight soap divider! Place your division tool inside your mold at this point to make it easier for you later!

Keep checking the temperatures of your lye water and oils using your thermometer. Once they have reached around room temperature (72 degrees Fahrenheit) and are within ten degrees of each other, they are ready to combine. Carefully pour your lye water into your oils and mix them together thoroughly.

When they are completely mixed, pour 358 grams of the mixture into each colored bowl. In a separate bowl, pour the last 358 grams and add your titanium paste. Mix all of these thoroughly until you have achieved all over white, pink, blue, and purple colors.

Then add 18 grams of Water Lily & Jasmine Type fragrance to each bowl, again mixing them thoroughly.

Now your soap will be ready to pour. Make sure your dividers go all the way to the bottom of the mold. We poured our pink first, into the first division on our mold. Leave a little bit in the bowl for the top of the soap. Repeat this will each other color.

Once you have finished pouring your soap, carefully remove your dividers from your soap. Once we removed our dividers, we used a skewer to swirl the base of our soap going in a mantra swirl from side to side across the whole soap.

Then pour the rest of each color on top in a straight line.

Using a skewer, place it down into just the top of your soap and begin to swirl, again in a manta swirl from side to side.

After your manta swirl, place the skewer in a corner of your soap and drag it from end to end in a Taiwan swirl across the whole top of your soap.

 

 

After you have swirled your soap, it will need to set up for at least 24 hours before removing it from the mold. Once your Taiwan Swirl soap has been removed from its mold, it will need to sit for at least 4 to 6 weeks, giving it enough time to cure and become less alkaline.

Always start with safety first! Before preparing anything, make sure that you are wearing your safety glasses, gloves, and mask! Once you are protected, you can prepare your lye water. Measure and weigh out 345 grams of water. Then measure and weigh out 125 grams of lye. Carefully add your lye to your water, then mix together thoroughly. Set your lye aside to cool down.

While you are waiting for the lye water to cool, you can go ahead and get your butters and oils ready. Measure and weigh out 272 grams of Shea Butter, 181 grams of Coconut Oil, 181 grams of Palm Oil, and 272 grams of Olive Oil. Then melt them your oils and butters down until they are completely melted. Once they are melted, set your bowl aside for it to cool as well.

While you are waiting for both your lye water and oils to cool, you can get your colors ready. In one mixing bowl, measure and weigh out 4 grams of Neon Orange colorant, and 6 grams of Lime Green colorant into another. In a third bowl, measure and weigh out 15 grams of titanium dioxide.

One your lye water and oils are around 100 degrees Fahrenheit and within 10 degrees of each other, they are ready to be mixed. Then pour just a little bit of your cooled oils into the bowl with titanium dioxide. Mix it thoroughly until it has become a paste-like consistency. Then go ahead and pour your lye water into your butters and oils. Mix it together thoroughly.

Next, pour 477 grams of your mixture into each bowl with your green and orange colorants.

In the base bowl, add your titanium dioxide paste and mix thoroughly until your mixture has turned completely white. Then thoroughly mix your green and orange bowls until you have achieved an all over orange color and an all over green.

Once you have thoroughly mixed your colors, add 24 grams of your Mint Mango Tea fragrance to each bowl, and again thoroughly mix each bowl. Then you can begin to pour your bowls into your mold. We started with our orange, and carefully poured just a little bit into a straight line across the mold. Do the same with your green, pouring into the center of the orange line.

Same with the white, pouring it right into the middle of the orange. Keep doing this technique alternating your colors until you have almost filled your mold.

Once you have finished pouring your colors, take the remainder of each and dollop it around on the top of your soap, using all of your remaining soap.

Then take your skewer and carefully circle it throughout the top of your soap, mixing the dollops together thoroughly. This will achieve a beautiful swirl effect on top.

Make sure to let your soap sit for at least 24 hours to fully set up before removing it from your mold.

 

 

 

 

Make sure to wait about 4 to 6 weeks before actually using your soap, giving it enough time to cure. After the 4 to 6 weeks have passed, your Mint Mango Soap will be ready for you to use and enjoy!
