If you are anything like us at Natures Garden, you enjoy learning how to make original, homemade crafts and products! We love playing around and creating new recipes for us, our website, and our customers. Today we are showing our Pomegranate Whipped Soap Recipe, which is made from quality ingredients that can all be found at Natures Garden. You only need four main ingredients to create it, which makes it a super simple recipe to follow. We think that recipes like these are great for beginners in this industry. It is important to us that we create and upload projects for people of all levels of expertise in the soap and candle making industries. Recipes like this one also work great for when you are running low on time to create or if you are looking for something fun to make with your children!

Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
4 oz Clear PET Jars
White Straight Lid Smooth 58/400

Other Ingredients and Equipment You Will Need:

Powdered Sugar

Total Recipe Weights:

454 grams Whipped Soap Base
250 grams Powdered Sugar
35 grams Pomegranate Fragrance Oil
15 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant

Before we begin making this recipe, it is important to clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials that will be used. We also always want to make the suggestion that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing these homemade cosmetic recipes. 

Ingredient Spotlight: Whipped Soap BaseIngredient Spotlight: Whipped Soap Base

To get started, we need to get our ingredients together and ready to be used. The main ingredient this recipe requires us to use is a whipped soap base. Our whipped soap base at Natures Garden is made from glycerin, sorbitol, stearic acid, and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate. SCI is a type of surfactant that is commonly added to skin care products because it leaves the skin feeling soft, hydrated, and moisturized. Our whipped soap base is a creamy, luscious product that can be very useful when making homemade projects in this industry. It is versatile and most often used to make body butters, shaving soap, bath frosting, and foaming sugar scrubs.

If you want to brighten up your whipped soap, adding soap coloring and/or Natures Garden body safe fragrance oils offer you that. There are some fragrance oils that may discolor your products, including whipped soap. Discoloration can usually be corrected by using vanilla white color stabilizer. Before choosing the fragrance oils you want to use, you will probably want to know whether or not your product will discolor, and by how much. We tested all of our fragrance oils in cold process soap and made a chart for the results, which you can check out.

Weighing Out the Whipped Soap BaseWeighing Out the Whipped Soap Base

Now that you know more about how our whipped soap base works, we can get started on our project of the day. First, you will need to get out some mixing bowls and a scale to accurately measure your ingredients. We always choose to use a digital scale when making recipes because we believe that it is the most accurate at weighing out the ingredients. With which ever type of scale that you prefer to use, weigh out 454 grams of the whipped soap base. Set it aside for now while we prepare the other three ingredients we are going to need.

Weigh Out the Powdered SugarWeigh Out the Powdered Sugar

Next, take out another mixing bowl. You are going to need to weigh out 250 grams of your powdered sugar. Any brand of powdered sugar will be fine to use in our recipes. Once you have measured out this ingredient, you can set it aside for the time being just as with the whipped soap base. We are going to be returning to it in a later step. 

Add in the Pomegranate Fragrance OilAdd in the Pomegranate Fragrance Oil

For the next step, you will need to take out a small bowl. Place the bowl on your scale and measure out 35 grams of the Natures Garden Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. Then, add it into your whipped soap base. The pomegranate fragrance oil is one of our single note fragrances and it smells of delicious fresh, fruity pomegranate slices. This is one of the best selling fragrance oils that we carry at our company. Some of our other best sellers are Black Raspberry and Vanilla, Fresh Brewed Coffee – WORLDS BEST, and NG Aqua di Gio Type. On our website we have a complete list of our best sellers that you can check out.

FUN Soap Colorant Collection at Natures GardenFUN Soap Colorant Collection at Natures Garden

Natures Garden carries a multitude of colorants for soap. We use these in the majority of our recipes to make them bright, colorful, and beautiful. There are 20 shades of these listed on our website. Some of the ones we have are Jailhouse Red, Ultramarine Blue, and Neon Yellow. They are all made using glycerine, vegetable glycerin, and different pigments. No chemical preservatives have been added to our colorants, and they are also completely vegan. They are non-bleeding and do not morph during the saponification process in soap. The FUN Soap Colorants page goes into detail with each of the colorants that we carry. Each section gives the ingredients of the colorants, what each of them are typically used in. 

Adding the Colorants InAdding the Colorants In

Now, it is time to add in the colorants! For this recipe, we need both the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant and the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. Give the bottles a shake before opening them up because sometimes the pigment can separate from the vegetable glycerin.  Taking the bowl containing the whipped soap base, add 15 drops of the tomato red colorant. Stir your mixture. Then, add 2 drops of the neon pink colorant to the same bowl. Incorporate the colors thoroughly. The amount for the color suggestions we gave for this recipe were based on the color we wanted our product to be. We were looking for more of a medium pink color as opposed to a deep red for this. If you prefer your whipped soap to be a darker red or a light pink, however, simply manipulate the colors until it reaches the look that you want it to be.

Mixing All of It TogetherMixing All of It Together

At this time, you are going to need to get out your hand mixer. We just use a typical kitchen hand mixer when making recipes. Do not use a mixer that you need for cooking food. Make sure that you are only using a mixer that is specifically for cosmetic projects and will never again be used for cooking. Turn on your mixer and begin whipping the whipped soap base. Continue to mix the combination of the whipped soap base, pomegranate fragrance oil, and the FUN Soap Colorants until it reaches a point where it starts looking like whipped frosting. 

Folding in the Powdered SugarFolding in the Powdered Sugar

After your mixture is combined completely, we can move on to our next step. You will need to grab the bowl that you have the powdered sugar in from step two. Pour and add the powdered sugar into the mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fully fold this dry powder portion into the wet whipped soap base.

Incorporating the MixtureIncorporating the Mixture

Keep folding in the powdered sugar until it is no longer visible. After you have done so, you will need to grab the hand mixer once again. We now need to repeat whipping the base as we did before, very thoroughly. In between mixing, use the spatula to clean the sides of the bowl as you feel it is necessary. Make sure all of your ingredients have been fully incorporated before you move on to the next step.

Get Your Mixture to a Frosting ConsistencyGet Your Mixture to a Frosting Consistency

Continue to mix everything with the hand mixer until it reaches a certain point. The texture is the most important part in this step. You can stop mixing your whipped soap once its appearance has reached a frosting like consistency. Allow your whipped soap mixture about five minutes, left alone, to fully set up.

Scoop the Whipped Soap into the JarsScoop the Whipped Soap into the Jars

After the whipped soap frosting has had enough time to set up, we have reached the final step! With your 4 oz. clear PET jars at the ready with their matching lids, we can finish our whipped soap off. Take out a mixing spoon and use it to scoop the foaming bath icing evenly into all seven of your jars. Then, finish your product off by screwing the white dome lids on each one of them. If you would like to use jars other than these clear PET ones, we also carry a 4 oz white double wall jar and a 4 oz black double wall jar

Your Pomegranate Whipped Soap is now ready to use, yay! We hope that you had fun creating this recipe with us today! If you want to share your results, thoughts, or questions with us, we can be reach on Facebook as the Natures Garden Company, on Twitter with the handle ngscents, and on Instagram with the handle ngscents as well. We are excited to see what you share!

Whipped Cupcake Soap RecipeWhipped Cupcake Soap Recipe

Another recipe of ours that uses our whipped soap base is the Whipped Cupcake Soap. This shows a different type of soap you can make with a whipped soap base. With this recipe, you can make up to four pounds of soap. The ingredients we used to make it include luscious cocoa butter, Daisy Type Fragrance Oil, whipped soap base, vegetable glycerin, and the Neon Pink FUN soap colorant. We made this soap using our square loaf mold, which gives it its shape. If you want to make your whipped cupcake soap even cuter, try adding some colorful sprinkles on top like you can see in our picture! This recipe is another super simple one to follow along with, and it shows what else you can do with the Natures Garden whipped soap base.

Before you begin, clean, wipe down, and sanitize your work station along with all of your packaging materials. We would like to suggest that you wear gloves, a face mask, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe. Get out all of your ingredients, and you are going to need four of the 8 ounce clear PET jars for this recipe, with lids. 

Soaping Oil PropertiesIngredients Highlight: Soaping Oil Properties

Before we get started, it is important to understand the reasoning behind using the oils that we did. Every oil has specific properties and purposes which are different from other oils. In this recipe, we used Coconut Oil 76, Avocado Oil, and Palm Oil. Each of these adds to the consistency of the body scrub and what purposes that it serves. We actually have a class on our website that is all about learning the different properties of commonly used soaping oils. In this class, we mention characteristics such as hardness, cleansing, conditioning, bubbly lather, and creamy lather. Each of these are based on a range of 1 to 100. Every oil that you will encounter contains different levels of these characteristics, and therefore will add different things to each creation that you make. The oils that you choose to work with and incorporate into your recipes will really depend on what kind of product that you want to achieve. There are definitely some benefits to each kind of oil, but some of them can replace each other in homemade soap making and other types of recipes.

Coconut Oil 76Coconut Oil 76

Beginning with Coconut Oil 76, the hardness level is a 79. The cleansing and bubbly lather properties are both rated a 67. The conditioning is a 10 and the creamy lather is a 12. With all of this being said, we can see that Coconut Oil 76 is decent for cleansing, lathering, and can be useful when making a hard soap because it is high in hardness. However, it will not be conditioning or have much creaminess to it.

Avocado OilAvocado Oil

The next oil we are going to look at is Avocado Oil. This is an oil that is fairly high in conditioning, at a 70. This was a great oil to add to this scrub recipe to make your skin soft when it is applied to the body. When it comes to the hardness and creamy lather, they are rated at a 22, which is pretty low. Avocado Oil does not contribute to cleansing or bubbly lather at all since they are rated at a zero for both of them.

Palm OilPalm Oil

Lastly, we are going to talk about Palm Oil. The level of hardness is a 50, cleansing is at a 1, the conditioning properties is a 49, bubbly lather is a 1, and the creamy lather is a 49. As you can tell from these numbers, Palm Oil is hardly cleansing at all, as well as having next to no bubbly lather to it. The Coconut Oil 76 contributes somewhat to cleansing, but the avocado oil and palm oil do not at all. The same is true with the bubbly lather. Since this is the case, and we all want our facial and body scrubs to be very cleansing to our skin, that is where the SLSA comes into play. We added in this ingredient because it is a nice foaming agent that helps create lather, mainly in soap, but also does in body scrubs somewhat. Another great thing about it is that it is super cleansing, which needed to be added to this recipe.

Mango ButterMango Butter

Another one of the ingredients that adds to the soft touch of this body scrub is Natures Garden mango butter. This butter is super soft and melts right on the skin. It contains many properties that help to really moisturize and soften the skin. It is a good ingredient to add to recipes to help with dry skin as well. Mango butter is commonly used to create lip balms, lip gloss, lotions, scrubs, and other bath and body products such as soap.

Weighing Out and Melting Your Oils and Mango ButterWeighing Out and Melting Your Oils and Mango Butter

For our first step, we need to get out our scale. Weigh out the 136 grams of coconut oil, 113 grams of avocado oil, 62 grams of palm oil, 74 grams of mango butter, 50 grams of silky emulsifying wax, and 12 grams of candelilla wax. As we normally do, we used the double boiler method to melt all of these ingredients down together. Place a few inches of water into a regular stovetop pot and allow it to heat up. Only use a pot that is strictly for soap, cosmetic, and candle making. Add your pouring pot, with the oils and mango butter in it, to the stovetop pot once the water has had some time to heat up. As they are melting, stir it occasionally. 

Adding in the Preservative and Fragrance OilAdding in the Preservative and Fragrance Oil

Once all of the oils have melted, remove them from the heat source on your stove. Before doing anything else, we need to let the mixture cool down a little bit. Allow the temperature of the melted mixture to drop to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, you can weigh out and add in the 5 grams of optiphen preservative, 5 grams of vitamin E oil, and 20 grams of the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. Stir in order to fully incorporate the ingredients. 

Getting the temperature correct before adding the optiphen preservative is imperative. We suggest adding it anywhere between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. By adding it before reaching a temperature of at least 120 degrees, the emulsification process might not take place. This will lead to your mixture separating and becoming unstable, which will make it useless. However, adding it above a temperature of 140 degrees will burn the optiphen off and it will not properly preserve your product. Using optiphen is going to ensure that bacteria and germs do not grow on your scrub. Optiphen will kill different types of bacteria, yeast and mold, which makes adding it essential to a lot of cosmetic products and formulas. It is made up of Phenoxyethanol and Caprylyl Glycol, the latter of which provides a soft, nice feel to finished formulas. This makes it very useful in products such as sunscreen, lotion, shampoo, body wash, and other types of cream. Adding a preservative such as optiphen can give your creams and scrubs a longer shelf life of up to six months, which is quite a long time!

Sangria Punch Fragrance OilSangria Punch Fragrance Oil

One of the main ingredients used to create this foaming facial scrub is the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden. Since it is in the title of the recipe, this is no surprise. This is an original fragrance exclusively available at Natures Garden and is one of our many multi layered fragrance oils. When you smell it, it begins with delicious fruity top notes of orange, lemon, grape, apple, and lime. The middle notes give off scents of pomegranate and blackberries, sitting on a dry down sugary base. When it comes to using it in specific products, we suggest about a 10% maximum usage in candle waxes. For potpourri and incense, about a 50% maximum usage, and a 5% maximum usage in bath products, lotions, perfume, and cleaning supplies. It can also be used in cold process soap. When tested for cold process soap, the results showed no acceleration, no discoloration, no ricing, no separation, and it held the scent very well and was very strong.

Mixing the Dry Ingredients TogetherMixing the Dry Ingredients Together

In a mixing bowl, blend the granulated sugar, diamond dust mica pigment, and the sodium lauryl sulfoacetate. This is a new surfactant ingredient that we have recently been working with in some of our recipes. Blend the sugar, mica pigment, and SLSA together using your hands. This will make it a lot easier to incorporate all of the ingredients together compared to using a spoon. Additionally, remove any clumps you find in the mixture.

Combine the Liquid Ingredients with the Dry IngredientsCombine the Liquid Ingredients with the Dry Ingredients

Pour your liquid ingredients that are melted down into the bowl containing the dry sugar mixture ingredients. Thoroughly mix and stir the two together and ensure that there are no clumps of dry mixture left. This is important for when we pour into our jars so that the scrub is nice and smooth for application to the body.

Adding the FUN Soap ColorantAdding the FUN Soap Colorant

Once you have mixed the liquid ingredients with the dry sugar mixture, you can add the tomato red FUN soap colorant. We waited to add the colorant until this step, as opposed to when we added the vitamin E oil, optiphen preservative, and the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. This is because we knew the sugar mixture may lighten the color up. If we added the colorant before this step, we might have added too much of it, and we wanted to create a nice pink color as opposed to a dark red shade.

Pouring the Product into the JarsPouring the Product into the Jars

Now, you can finally add the scrub to each of your four jars. Place lids on each of them to finish up your scrub! This can be used right after it is poured in the jar if you are happy with its consistency. However, another option that you have is to wait at least a few hours or even a day to allow it to set up more. If you do wait for a little bit, the scrub will become a thicker consistency to work with. This will allow you to add more granulated sugar if you would like a thicker consistency. Either one of these options will work and it is truly up to whatever you prefer to do.

We hope that you had a fun time creating this Sparkling Sangria Body Scrub Recipe with us! If this sangria foaming body scrub recipe has you craving the real thing, try this sparkling champagne recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

Holiday Ribbon Melt and Pour Soap ProjectHoliday Ribbon Melt and Pour Soap Project

Natures Garden has come up with a brand new recipe for all of our customers to try out this Christmas season! We love this time of the year because there are many different recipes we all can make, that our Christmas fragrances add the perfect touch to. This Holiday Ribbon Melt and Pour Soap Project will throw you right in the spirit of Christmas. Creating new ideas and finding crafts that are going to excite and inspire people is always a goal of ours. This is especially important around the holiday season, at a time of giving to the people you care about most. People are constantly searching for interesting gifts to give to family and friends, which homemade crafts provide the perfect fix for!  We hope that this unique melt and pour soap can be the inspiration you have been looking for. It is super fun to make and will provide you with 32 soap ribbons! Let’s go ahead and get started with this project.

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
Mango Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base
FUN Soap Colorant Tomato Red
FUN Soap Colorant Neon Green
Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil
FUN Soap Colorant Kelly Green
FUN Soap Colorant Black Oxide
8 ounce Clear PET Bullet Bottle
White 24/410 Fine Mist Sprayer

Other Ingredients & Equipment You Will Need:

Cutting Board
Scale
Microwave safe containers
Large Knife
Microwave
13 x 9″ Pan
Rubbing alcohol (in the bullet bottle)

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapDiamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

The first step in this recipe is to prepare the red soap portion. We will need to weigh out the 456 grams of the Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. This soap base of ours is made up of 99.5% glycerin and pure deodorized, double distilled, coconut oil. These ingredients give excellent qualities to this soap. Glycerin helps the skin to retain moisture that is naturally made, soap that contains glycerin in it is gentler on the skin than other types of soap are, and it is great for more dry and sensitive skin.

Coconut oil contains many healthy saturated fats, it is a natural anti-fungal product, and it is also naturally anti-bacterial. Another great property of coconut oil is that it is highly moisturizing, which makes it a popular ingredient in soap and lip balm. Natures Garden also sells Coconut Oil 76 along with Fractionated Coconut Oil, both of which are used in several of our other homemade recipes. Also, if you really enjoy the scent of coconut, you might want to check out the coconut-related fragrance oils that we carry. Some of these are Coconut Cream Pie, Creamy Coconut, and Natures Garden Coconut Vanilla Type

Melting the Soap Base and Adding the Fragrance OIlMelting the Soap Base and Adding the Fragrance Oil

Now that we have discussed some of the properties of this soap base, we can begin melting it to make our soap. Melt the 456 grams that we measured out. You can melt the soap in either a microwave or using a double boiler. After the soap has completely melted, the next ingredient we are going to be using is the Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. Weigh out 23 grams of it and add that to the melted Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. 

holiday pomegrante fragrance oilThis Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil has definitely been a popular scent in the products and crafts that we have been creating for this holiday season. The other recipes that we have used it in so far are the Holiday Pomegranate Candle, Holiday Air Freshener, and the Holiday Pomegranate Cold Process Soap. As with many others, this fragrance oil is versatile to use in many types of products. We have been using it so much because it smells so delicious! It contains an arrangement of pomegranate, dewberries, blackberries, sparkling citrus, sheer musk, iris, jasmine, red cassis, and finally, sandalwood. It brings together all of these elements in a way that makes it a great ingredient to add to Christmas products!

Making the Red Portion of the SoapMaking the Red Portion of the Soap

Stir the melted soap and Holiday Pomegranate fragrance oil mixture together to incorporate them before moving on. Next, add 35 drops of the tomato red FUN soap colorant. Additionally, use a toothpick to add just a tiny amount of the black oxide FUN soap colorant. Fully stir it together until it is completely red, without any streaks of white.

Allowing the Soap to Set UpAllowing the Soap to Set Up

Next, we are going to pour the red soap onto one of the two pans. In order to release any air bubbles, spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol. When it has had approximately twenty minutes to set up, you can then remove it from the pan. However, the time that it takes for the soap to set up may vary, depending on different conditions. If the temperature of the room that you are working in is too hot or too cold, set up time could be affected. Another factor that may affect set up time is the temperature at which you poured it. When you are removing it from the pan, it should still be warm to the touch at that point.

Creating the Red Strips For Your SoapCreating the Red Strips For Your Soap

For the next step, we are going to place the red soap onto a cutting board. Place it in front of you horizontally. Then, using a knife that you have, begin slicing the soap into vertical strips. Cut them so that they are all about ¼ inch wide. Use and cut the entire portion of the red that you have made, since we are going to have some of them left over. Set them to the side for now and we will come back to them in a later step. 

Preparing the Green Portion of the SoapPreparing the Green Portion of the Soap

Grab your second pan for this next step. It is time for us to prepare the green portion of this holiday ribbon melt and pour soap! Once again, you will need to weigh out 456 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Then, in exactly the same way as before, melt it down. Once the soap has completely melted, we are going to repeat another step from earlier. Measure out and add 23 grams of the Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. You can stir it together to incorporate it before adding the colorants. Then, add 20 drops of the neon green FUN soap color along with 3 drops of the Kelly Green FUN soap colorant. Once again, we used a toothpick to add just a small amount of the black oxide FUN soap colorant to the bowl. Stir all of the ingredients together so that they are fully combined. 

Setting Up the Green SoapSetting Up the Green Soap

Next, pour the green soap onto one of your pans. Spray with rubbing alcohol to release air bubbles. You will want to remove the soap from the pan when it has setup but is still warm to the touch. Once again, this will take approximately 20 minutes. However, setup time can vary depending on the temperature that you poured as well as the temperature of the room you are working in.

Slicing the Green Soap into StripsSlicing the Green Soap into Strips

Once again, after you have removed the soap from your pan, place the soap on a cutting board. Have it facing horizontally in front of you. Then, just as before, we are going to slice it into vertical strips that are about ¼ inch wide. They should look exactly the same as the red strips we cut previously.

Making the White Portion of the SoapMaking the White Portion of the Soap

Now, we can prepare the last portion of our holiday ribbon melt and pour soap project. This will be the white portion of the soap, which will follow very similar steps as the red and green soap portions did. However, instead of using the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap, we are going to be using the Mango Butter Melt and Pour Soap. Start by weighing out 655 grams. Once it has melted, add 32 grams of the Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. Incorporate everything together by stirring. 

This base is unscented with no Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS), or any other added detergents. The ingredients in this base are glycerin, sodium stearate, sodium cocoate, and sodium myristate,. It also contains coconut oil (cocoa nucifera), palm oil (elaeis guineensis), sunflower oil (helianthus annus), purified water, mango butter (mangifera indica), and titanium dioxide. Mango butter has several beneficial properties to it such as soothing and softening the skin. Eczema and dryness of the skin can be helped by mango butter. Additionally, it cleanses the surface of the skin from blemishes or impurities, and helps to unclog pores. 

Spraying the Strips of SoapSpraying the Strips of Soap

At this time, you will need one of your empty pans and the red and green strips that we previously created. Place the strips in the pan, leaving about ¼ inch gaps in between each. The soap is going to be white in color where the ¼ inch gaps are when we are finished pouring. Due to this, it does not matter how you choose to lay down your strips. You can lay them in whatever order you would like. We created variations when making this recipe. Some of our ribbon soap simply had green and white lines, while others had only red and white lines. We also created some with both green and red strips, as you can see in the picture. How you choose to do it is completely up to you! Once you have your strips laid out on the pan how you would like them to be, spray the soap strips in the pan with rubbing alcohol. This will help to ensure that they will adhere to the white soap we are about to pour on top of them. 

Incorporating the White SoapIncorporating the White Soap

Then, we are going to finish off our strips by adding the white portion. Pour the melted soap into the pan where you have left the gaps in between the green and red. These gaps will be filled by the white soap and will eventually harden. Once you have done this, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles again. Just as you have before, remove the soap from the pan while it is still warm to the touch. Make sure that it has had enough time to set up. When it is at this stage, the strip will still be flexible, which makes it much easier to work with. This flexibility is essential for the final step, so the timing is very important.

Slicing and Bending the Finished ProductSlicing the Finished Product

For this next step, quickly and carefully slice the soap the way that we did for the green and red strips. However, this time we want to have eight strips. Once you have cut them, trim around the edges to remove any excess or jagged pieces. 

 

 

Shaping the Ribbon Soap

For the final step in creating this holiday ribbon candy project, we are going to bend the strips of soap. We created a zig zag texture to resemble ribbon candy. The shape of this soap makes it that much cuter! Allow enough time for it to finish cooling down before use.

As we mentioned earlier, you are going to notice that you still have left over green and red strips of soap. All you have to do is simply repeat the steps, beginning when you make the portion for the white soap. This way, you can find a way to utilize the remaining strips and avoid any waste. It is also a great idea to use all of the extra pieces that you can make as a gift for someone this holiday season! We ended up having enough strips to create a total of four pans of striped soap! This will obviously vary depending on how thick you decided to cut your strips of green and red soap. 

After you have made as much soap as you would like to, your Holiday Ribbon Melt and Pour Soap Project is now ready to be used! We hope that you enjoyed making this new and fun holiday themed product! If this soap making recipe has you hungry for the real thing, you can find it at the Vermont Country Store!

If you have never experimented with cold process soap before, there is a lot to learn about. This particular CP soap recipe uses the very popular Natures Garden scent Reindeer Poo fragrance oil, which gives a fun Christmas scent to your soap. This is a great fragrance to use around Christmas because it a blend of eucalyptus and pine. Let’s get started on making our Reindeer Poo Cold Process Soap Recipe!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Rubber Spatula
Scale
Stick Blender
Vinegar
Piping Bag
Decorating Tip for Piping Bag
Saran Wrap

Total Recipe Weights for Cold Process Soap:

344 grams Distilled Water
126 grams Lye
18 grams Sodium Lactate
(added to cooled lye solution)

136 grams Palm Oil
181 grams Mango Butter
226 grams Coconut Oil 76

4 grams FUN Soap Colorant Tomato Red

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!

Lemon Peel Benefits

Lemon Peel BenefitsLemon Peel Benefits

There are many lemon peel benefits that you can use to benefit your body. Both the Lemon Peel Cut and Sifted and the Lemon Peel Powder from Natures Garden are perfect for nourishing your body inside and outside. You will love all the ways that you can use this bright citrus herb in your life. Not only can use this herb to enhance your food recipes, but you can use this herb to create lovely bath and body recipes. So, let’s get into all the benefits and properties of lemon peel.

Lemon Peel Benefits: Growing ConditionsLemon Peel Benefits: Growing Conditions

Lemon trees require a warm climate and are quite sensitive to the cold. The tree will become inactive below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the fruit dies after being exposed to lower than 28 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. So, they will need protection from frost, which can be helped by ensuring that your tree has enough water. Additionally, lemon trees should be provided with full sunlight. While these trees are temperature sensitive, they are able to tolerate many different types of soils. However, these trees will prefer soil that is slightly acidic and well-draining. Further, you should plant your tree in a hole that is slightly shorter than the root ball. Then, replace the dirt and tamp firmly. 

For those in the United States, anyone that doesn’t live in a climate like Florida or California may want to plant your lemon tree indoors. As long as the pot is fairly large and the soil is well draining, the tree should be comfortable as an indoor plant. However, a typical lemon tree has the potential to grow to be 20 feet tall, so you will likely want to prune your tree as it gets too large.

However, the lemons require hot summers to develop the fruit. So, it may be less likely for an indoor tree to produce fruit if you don’t bring your plant outside in the summer. Luckily, there are dwarf lemon tree options, like the Meyer lemon, that are more likely to bear fruit. Since your plant will be inside, it is unlikely that pollinators, like bees, butterflies, and other bugs, can get to your plant. Instead, you can use a paintbrush or cotton swab to rub pollen within the flower. This increase your chance of fruit and lead to a better harvest.
