Step 1:  Prepare your lye solution.  Allow the lye solution to cool to room temperature.  
Step 2:  While you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, prepare your soaping oils.  Once your oils are melted, allow them to cool to room temperature.
Step 3:  While you are waiting for your oils and lye solution to cool, prepare the colorants listed above.  
Step 4:  When both the soaping oils and the lye solution are at room temperature, combine the lye solution to the soaping oils.  Next, stick blend the soap batter to emulsify the ingredients.  Next, add the Elderflower and Apple Blossoms Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stick blend your soap batter to incorporate the scent.  
Step 5:  Begin dividing the soap batter.  To the squeeze bottle, add 4 ounces of the soap batter and the spirulina powder mixture.  Shake to incorporate the color.
Step 6:  Divide the remaining batter equally into three bowls.  Add ⅓ of this batter to each bowl.  
Step 7:  To one bowl add the colorant for the titanium dioxide mixture.  Next, add the pink colorant to the second bowl.  Finally, add the light green colorant to the last bowl.  Stick blend the contents of each bowl.  
Step 8:  Place your mold in front of you.  Add most of the white soap to the mold.  You will want to keep about 2 ounces of the soap batter to top the soap in a later step.  Set this portion aside for later.
Step 9:  At this time, we will begin pouring the pink and light green batter.  First, pour the pink. Place the mold in front of you vertically.  Pour the pink soap batter in a line down the length of the mold.  Pour three of these lines.  One on the right, one down the center, and one in the left.
Step 10:  Next, pour three lines with the light green soap batter.
Step 11:  Now, you will need the squeeze bottle of dark green soap batter.  Pour three dark green lines down the length of the mold.  You will need to keep about 1 oz of this soap batter to top the soap.  Set the dark green batter aside, to be used in a later step.  
Step 12:  Repeat this process with the light green batter and the pink batter only.  Keep about 2 ounces of the light green and pink soap batter to top your soap.  
Step 13:  Top your soap.  Pour a line of pink soap batter down the length of the mold on the left side.  It should be about 1” wide.  Then, pour a white line in the same manner down the center of the mold.  On the right side of the mold, pour a light green line.  Finally, pour a thin dark green line where the pink and white soap meet. Repeat pouring a dark green line where the white and light green soap batter meet.
Step 14:  Using your toothick, start in the upper right corner of your mold.  Begin making an “S” pattern until you reach the bottom left corner of the soap mold.
