Melt and Pour Soap Making SuppliesMelt and Pour Soap Making Supplies

One of the most common ways to create soap is to use melt and pour soap bases. We are going to be discussing all of the melt and pour soap making supplies that you will need to get started on some projects! Natures Garden has a ton of recipes, useful information, and materials on our website to help you out with soap making. As far as melt and pour, there are eleven soap bases that we carry for you to choose from. A couple of the ones we have are Shea Butter, Goat’s Milk, and Cocoa Butter. We also have some classes on our website that will help you to succeed, which are especially useful for beginner soap makers. Our Easy Directions for Making Melt and Pour Soap class will provide you with a step by step tutorial on how to make a puppy paw soap. The other class we have, How to Use Melt and Pour Soap, will teach you how to make agave lime soap.

Easy Directions for Melt and Pour: Puppy Paw Soap

There are only a few ingredients that you will need to make this recipe. In order to, you will need the 1 oz Quick Order Da Bomb Soap Dye, two pounds of Quick Order Melt and Pour Soap, and the Square Loaf Molds. The Natures Garden website has each of these ingredients readily available to all of our customers. The craft equipment you need to make melt and pour soap include a bowl, a cutting board, knife, measuring utensils and mixing spoons. Other ingredients that might be necessary are soap dyes, body safe fragrance oil, rubbing alcohol, and soap molds.

After selecting the soap base that you want to use, cut it up into cubes. Add them to your microwave safe bowl and melt them in 30 second increments until the soap is fully melted. Then, add in colorant if you want to, and a Natures Garden body safe fragrance oil. For this pet safe soap, we used the scent Pooch Smooch. This fragrance brings together a combination of sweet melon, cucumber, and hints of orange. After adding these, stir the mixture to incorporate everything together. Then, pour it into your soap mold cavities. Sometimes air bubbles can appear from pouring. To fix and remove these, spray the product with rubbing alcohol. Now, you can allow for your soap to set up! You can either let them cool down naturally, or place them in the refrigerator to speed the process up. This is one example to show just how easy it is to make recipes using melt and pour soap!

How to Use Melt and Pour Soap

We have another class on the Natures Garden website, which also shows how to make recipes using melt and pour soap. In this class, we show you how to make scented soap. For this recipe, you will need two pounds of the Quick Order Melt and Pour Soap, 1 oz of the Quick Order FUN Soap Colorants, a Natures Garden body safe fragrance oil, or a natural oil like Natural Vanilla Infusion (35 Fold), and the Basic Oval Soap Molds. Choose which ever soap base you want to work with from the eleven that we carry. Cut your base into cubes, place them in a bowl, and microwave in 30 second intervals until the soap is completely melted. Then, you can add a FUN soap colorant to it, some of the scented oil and stir. Pour the mixture into the oval molds and spray them with rubbing alcohol. Allow time for them to completely cool down. Once it has cooled down, you will have your finished product!

Melt and Pour Soap Kit

Natures Garden sells different kinds of kits that our customers can use to create a bunch of products and projects. One of these is our melt and pour soap kit to help you make homemade soap. With this kit, you can choose between either Goat’s Milk or Ultra Clear as your melt and pour soap base. It will come with a two pound slab of which ever one you choose. The kit also comes with four different samples of Natures Garden fragrance oils. Currently, we include Sweet Pea, Best Friends, Oatmeal Milk and Honey, and Lavender in this kit. Additionally, you will receive two Da Bomb liquid soap dyes in the colors currently, red and blue. Finally, this kit contains the oval decorative and angel heart soap molds. This kit makes it easy for beginners to start creating homemade soap. There is a full list of instructions included so that you can get started. Ordering additional fragrance oils, soap dyes, soap colorants, and different molds can give an endless variety to your soap making!

Our Soap Bases

Our eleven melt and pour soap bases are fairly similar to one another. They have a lot of the same ingredients and all of them are free of SLS, there are no added detergents, they are gluten free, and they have not been tested on animals. When made into soap, they lather nicely, creating plenty of bubbles and suds. These bases ease the process of soap making because making your soap will only take a few steps! Each of our bases follow the same steps. All you will need to do is cut the soap, melt it down in the microwave, and then add fragrance oil to it. Adding a scent can give more character to your product. As long as it is a body safe fragrance oil, you can choose which ever one you want from Natures Garden. You can also give character to your soap by making it colorful with a soap colorant. We sell FUN soap colorants in multiple shades, which make it easy to dye your products either light or dark.

Shea Butter Melt and Pour Soap

The first Natures Garden soap base we will discuss is Shea Butter. This is made up from vegetable glycerin, sodium stearate, sodium cocoate, sodium myristate, sunflower oil, coconut oil, palm oil, purified water, shea butter, and titanium dioxide. The combination of these ingredients creates a quality moisturizing soap product that will leave your skin feeling great. Additionally, shea butter can treat acne, reduce inflammation of the skin, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Since there a few holidays approaching, we wanted to share some recipes made from these soap bases that are relevant to this time of year! Our Hearts a Flutter Soap and Easter Bunny Soaps Recipe are made using this luscious base of shea butter.

Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap

Our Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base contains coconut oil, palm oil, and sunflower oil. It also has glycerin, goat’s milk, titanium dioxide, and germall plus, which is a common cosmetic preservative. Goat’s milk is an ingredient commonly added to lotions, creams, and lip balms because it is incredibly moisturizing and hydrating for the skin. It is great for people who have sensitive skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. Goat’s milk removes dead skin cells from different surfaces on the body to provide smooth and healthy skin. Check out this Valentines Day Bouquet Recipe craft and Solid Sugar Scrub Recipe product that we made using this base!

SLS Free Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap

Although all of the Natures Garden melt and pour bases are free of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), we decided to call this base SLS free. Each of our bases are made of 99.5% glycerin and pure deodorized double distilled coconut oil. Other ingredients in this product are propylene glycol, sodium stearate, sorbitol, sodium myristate, triethanolamine, sodium laurate, sodium cocoate, and purified water. The color of this base can vary from diamond clarity to a slightly cloudy yellowish. We have a cute and fun craft to make that is great for Valentines Day. Our Heart Soaps with Love Message Recipe is a perfect gift for the upcoming holiday. It makes red, pink, and white soap hearts that have a hidden, laminated love message for your significant other between them.

Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap

This cocoa butter melt and pour soap base contains glycerin, coconut oil, palm oil, and theobroma cacao (cocoa butter). Cocoa butter is the fat that gets separated out from cocoa beans. It has luxurious qualities to it, which is why it is commonly added to lip balms, lip glosses, lotions, scrubs, and soap. It is very nourishing and moisturizing for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin conditions like dermatitis. Both the Chocolate Dipped Bath Fizzies Recipe and our Vanilla Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe on the website are easy to follow recipes that use this cocoa butter melt and pour soap base.

Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap

Our hemp oil soap base is unscented, contains no SLS, and no added detergents. This base is made up of vegetable glycerin, coconut oil, palm oil, sunflower oil, cannabis sativa seed (hemp) oil, titanium dioxide, and a few other ingredients. Hemp oil can moisturize the skin without clogging your pores. It also hydrates the skin and can regulate the skin’s production of oil. This soap base can make products such as our Bamboo Hemp Soap and Easter Egg Soap recipes.

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

The diamond clear melt and pour soap base is used in so many of the products listed on our website. One of these is the Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap Recipe project, which is another one that is great for Valentines Day. We also have the Cherry Chocolate Soap Recipe. This base can provide healthier looking skin, attracts moisture to skin, and can treat oily skin conditions. It has superior lathering qualities to it and makes your skin feel soft. Just like with the SLS free base, the diamond clear soap may range in color between diamond like clarity to a yellowish and slightly cloudy shade.

Honey Melt and Pour Soap

This honey soap base comes in a golden yellow honey colored slab. Some ingredients it contains are honey, glycerin, coconut oil, water, palm oil, and sunflower oil. Honey is a product that provides a lot of benefits to the skin. It is naturally antibacterial, which helps to prevent acne. Additionally, honey has antioxidants that can reduce the appearance of aging and wrinkles, and is soothing on the skin. Our Loofah Honey Melt and Pour Soap Recipe was made with this base.

Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap

Like the others, this oatmeal melt and pour soap has vegetable glycerin, sodium stearate, palm oil, coconut oil, and water. It also contains avena sativa (oat kernel), which gives it the oatmeal name. Oat kernel extract cleanses the skin naturally by removing dirt and oil from its surfaces. It can also reduce the size of pores and smooth the texture of your skin. One of the recipes we have on the website that was made with our oatmeal soap base are these Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soaps, which are fun to make for Easter.

The last couple of Natures Garden melt and pour soap bases that we did not mention in this blog are the Yogurt, Mango Butter, and Soya. There are also plenty of other recipes attached to each of these on our website for you to check out!

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Soap Frosting

Let’s set the scene! There is a plain loaf of soap sitting on your table looking kind of sad. It’s plain looking on top! It needs something! How about a fluffy mound of “whipped cream”? An easy and quick way to do this is our Soap Frosting made with whipped soap base and yogurt melt and pour soap! This versatile recipe can be scented with your fragrance oil of choice or even colored with a FUN soap colorant. Since it’s frosting though, we chose Buttercream Fragrance Oil. A yummy blend of buttercream and vanilla! Now your soaps have a beautiful topping that looks like you could dip your finger in and take a lick!

 

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Rainbow Zebra Print Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe

Our first recipe is a fun creation for those that like to get creative! We used yogurt melt and pour soap and some FUN soap colorants in Teal, Yelp Yellow, Neon Pink and Neon Blue! To create the fun Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe you will all you do is a simple trick of tilting your mold from one side to the other and allowing the layer you have poured to set up almost completely. You will definitely get a soap pattern that has a look of intricate layering. Only you will know the trick! We scented this soap with our best selling scent,  Amazingly Grace fragrance oil! This soap is scented with a light citrus tone sweetened with rose, violet, jasmine. 

So, what do you think?  Are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripes? Actually they are black with white stripes! Their stripes are camouflage from predators. Zebras are hard to distinguish if they are in large groups. The stripes act as a natural sunscreen to protect their skin from the African heat and sun.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe

This next recipe is a wonderfully feminine creation! Our Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap uses a combination of Yogurt melt and pour, plus our whipped soap base to help give the soap a fluffy, white topping! You are going to create 4 differently colored soap bases. Each soap base will have a beneficial clay added to it. The clays we chose to use are Rose Clay, French Green Clay, Kaolin and a personal favorite of mine: Vanilla Powder which is the yummiest smelling powder! These natural cosmetic clays will help exfoliate and nourish the skin along with removing impurities from your skin pores. The fragrance oil was our fragrance of the month in February, Moonlight Tuberose! This fragrance oil is a delicate blend of rose and greenery. Sprinkle some whole Jasmine flowers on top to give your soap an extra lovely touch!

Did you know? The tuberose is a night blooming flower native to Mexico. Louis XIV of France loved the tuberose. He had hundreds of them planted in the gardens at Versailles. The scent was overpowering! Gardeners grew the tuberoses in clay pots where they were planted directly into the ground. To keep the perfume-y air consistent, new plants were placed in among old plants on a daily basis.

Here is an ingenious soap that looks like you could eat it! Banana Pudding Soap is completely made using Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap base.  Our graphic artist, Afshan created this recipe.  She created the banana slices and vanilla wafers using molds from Flexiblemolds.com. These molds are wonderful to work with and can be used multiple times. She scented this fun and unique soap with our Old Fashioned Banana Pudding fragrance oil. It smells of true banana pudding! Vanilla wafers, bananas and meringue topping! The whipped topping for this particular recipe did not use the Soap Frosting recipe. We chose to whip up some imagine base with the yogurt soap base with a touch of vegetable glycerin to give the batter some flexibility.

Did you know? Banana Pudding is actually a dessert that developed in the south, around the early 1900s?

We used our yummy Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcake fragrance oil that smells of chocolate cake, vanilla, buttercream and coconut! We even grated a small bit of unscented soap base to help give it that “coconut” touch!

Did you know? Around 1873, William A. Lawrence, a Chester, New York dairyman, was the first to mass-produce cream cheese. In 1872, he purchased a Neufchâtel (neufchatel is actually a french cheese that is soft, slightly crumbly mold-ripened cheese) factory and shortly thereafter, by adding cream to the process, was able to create a richer cheese that he called “cream cheese”.

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Green Soap 

We will begin by preparing the green soap. A small amount of the green soap will be used for the confetti portion of the soap. The remaining green soap will be used in the loaf portion of the soap.

First, you will need a dish that is safe for the microwave. In this dish, weigh out 415 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Now, melt the clear mp soap base in your microwave. You will want to melt in 30-second bursts, stirring occasionally.  Continue to melt the soap until all the melt and pour soap is in a melted state.  While you are waiting for the soap to melt, lay out a piece of wax paper.

Next, we will be adding our soap colorant.  Now, add the 10 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir well to completely incorporate the green colorant.  Once all of the soap is colored, add the 17 grams Fruitcake fragrance oil and 17 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Mix to blend the fragrance oil and vanilla white.

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare your Green Soap

 

Finally, pour about 130 grams of the green colored soap onto your sheet of wax paper.  Alternatively, you can use an extra mold to pour your thin layer like I did.  Spray this soap with rubbing alcohol to eliminate any air bubbles.  Allow this to setup.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare your Green Soap

 

 

The remaining green soap will be used for the green portion of your loaf.  So, slowly pour the rest of the green soap into the mold. Then, spray the green soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles you see in your soap loaf. Next, just allow your soap to setup.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare your Green Soap

 

 

Once the green soap that was poured on the wax paper has setup, we will begin cutting our confetti.  So, place your soap on a cutting board.  Then, begin cutting the soap into small squares.  Put the cut up soap in a small bowl and set it aside for now.  We will come back to it in just a bit.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red Soap

We will once again use a portion of the soap for the confetti and the rest will be used in the red layer of the soap loaf. So, cut and melt 415 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in the same manner you prepared the green soap. Once again, while the soap is melting, lay out a piece of wax paper.

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red Soap

 

Now, remove the soap from the microwave and add the 9 drops of tomato red soap colorant, 17 grams Fruitcake fragrance oil, and 17 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Stir your soap to completely incorporate the colorant and Fruitcake fragrance oil completely.  Then, pour about 130 grams of the melted red soap onto the wax paper.  Allow the soap that you poured on the wax paper to setup.  You can set the bowl of remaining red soap base aside, we will come back to it.

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Red ConfettiChristmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Red Confetti

Next, once the red confetti soap has setup, use a knife to cut the soap into very small confetti like squares.  Once you have cut them, you can place the red soap in the bowl with the green soap.  Then, go ahead and mix them together.  This will make adding it to your soap easier later.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your White Soap

Once your green layer of soap has setup completely, you can prepare the white layer.  So, in a mixing bowl, melt 570 grams of Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Then, add your Fruitcake fragrance oil and Vanilla White,  Finally, use a spoon to mix the soap.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your White Soap

 

Now, spray your previous green soap layer with rubbing alcohol.  Next, pour the melted white soap directly on top of the green layer.  Then, while the white soap base is still in its melted state, drop half of the red and green confetti into the white soap layer.  Finally, spray the white layer with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles that have formed in the soap.  Allow the white layer to setup before moving on.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Pour Your Red Soap LayerChristmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Pour Your Red Soap Layer

Now we will melt the red soap layer.  Once the white layer has setup, you will need to remelt the red soap base you set aside earlier.  Remember, you want to melt the soap in 30 second bursts only until it is in a liquid state.  Be careful not to overheat the soap.

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Pour Your Red Soap Layer

 

Next, we will pour the top red layer. So, once again, spray the previous white soap layer with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the red soap directly on top of it.  Finally, spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Allow the red soap layer to setup.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap BaseChristmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

Now, we will be preparing the whipped topping for our soap.  You will need to move rather quickly through the next few steps.  First, in a mixing bowl, weigh out the 150 grams of the Natures Garden whipped topping, 18 grams if the vanilla white, 18 grams of the Fruitcake fragrance oil, and 17 grams vegetable glycerin.  Use a hand mixer to bring the whipped soap base to a whipped frosting consistency.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

 

Next, simply place the 150 grams of your Natures Garden Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap in a mixing bowl.  Then use your microwave to melt the soap base.  Melt it to a liquid state, use caution not to overheat the soap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the soap is melted, pour it into the mixing bowl with the whipped soap and the vegetable glycerin.  Begin beating the mixture with a hand held mixer.  When the soap looks like whipped frosting, stop beating.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Topping Your SoapChristmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Topping Your Soap

Next, we will begin topping our soap loaf.  So, using your spoon quickly scoop the soap frosting on top of the soap.  You want it to look like whipped cream on top of the soap.

When all of the soap has been covered with, you can begin adding the confetti.  You will use the remaining red and green confetti to top your whipped cream topping.
