Let’s talk about the type of soap we will be using! If your are new to the world of soaping follow this link to the page on our website that will give you the full rundown how to use all of our melt and pour soap bases. The following recipes will be using our Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base. If you are new to the soapmaking world, melt and pour is an awesome way to get started. This soap will let you, the soap maker, focus on the aesthetic that will make your soap your own!  It allows you to familiarize yourself with techniques of handmade soapmaking using colorants, fragrances, and soap molds. This soap base is very versatile! It can be melted and remelted without losing any of its quality! This can be very helpful if you are trying to create a fancy soap that has multiple steps!

 

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.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Leprechaun Hat Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Leprechaun Hat Soap Recipe

Did you know? Leprechauns were thought to be dressed in red and not green? Poets and writers stated in their musings that the rascally leprechauns where seen wearing a variation of “red dress”.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Banana Pudding Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Banana Pudding Soap Recipe

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?

Please feel free to make the real thing! You will want one after you get a whiff of this soap! Using Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap for the cupcake and the “cream cheese” topping is just part of the creation. 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”.

Our fragrance oil of choice for this recipe is Flower Child; a very earthy scent of patchouli and sandalwood! This soap would make a good companion to our Hippies & Hemp Cold Process soap!

Did you know? The term “flower child originated in San Francisco in the summer of 1967. “Flower Child” originated as a synonym for “hippie”. It was the custom of “flower children” to wear and distribute flowers or floral-themed decorations to symbolize ideas of universal belonging, peace, and love.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
