Recipe Directions

  1. This project and these instructions have been written for someone who has experience making soap and knows the potential dangers due to working with sodium hydroxide. It will not outline safety methods of working with dangerous chemicals, it is simply a soap recipe for advanced soapmakers.
  2. Measure water and lye in separate containers. Very carefully, pour lye into water and stir until lye is dissolved.
  3. Weigh oils and butter and place in microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Microwave on high until butter is melted. (Our oil was getting too hot and cocoa butter was not melting. We scooped the cocoa butter into a cup and heated until melted before adding back to the rest of the oils.)
  4. Prepare colorants by taking 0.25 oz. of oils and place in 3 of the beakers. Add the Matte Woodland Green to cup #1, Matte Teal Green to cup #2 and Matte White to cup #3. Stir well or use Mini Mixer to blend powders.
  5. Prepare Goat Milk Powder by taking 0.5 oz. of oils and placing in a beaker. Add 2 Tablespoons of Goat Milk Powder and stir well.
  6. Measure fragrance oil and place in the last beaker.
  7. When the oils and lye water mixture are around the same temperature (100°F), it is time to start soaping.
  8. Place stick blender in the oils and tap it on the bottom of the bowl to "burp" it and release any air bubbles.
  9. Pour the lye water over the shaft of the stick blender. Carefully blend your oils and lye water until the mixture comes to a very light trace. Slowly add the fragrance oil and Goat Milk/Oil mixture while stirring the soap with a spatula
  10. In 2 separate measuring cups, pour about 5 oz. of traced soap into each. To the main pot, add the reserved oil that has been colored with white pigment and stir well. Pour into loaf mold and gently tap on the counter to release any air bubbles.
  11. Add the reserved oil that has been colored with Matte Woodland Green Powder and add to the reserved soap in measuring cup #1. Use a clean spatula to mix well into soap.
  12. From about 12 inches above your mold, carefully pour this along the top left side of your loaf.
  13. Add the reserved oil that has been colored Matte Teal Green to the reserved soap in cup #2. Use a clean spatula to mix well into soap.
  14. From about 12 inches above the mold, carefully pour this along the top right side of the loaf.
  15. You can now play with the texture on the top, making it look like whipped cream, if you like. Allow soap to sit overnight uncovered, but carefully insulate the sides of the loaf with a towel.
  16. The next morning, carefully unmold the loaf and slice into 8 one-inch slices. Allow the bars to sit on a cooling rack for 4-6 week to cure fully.
