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. Put on your protective gear. This is very important since you will be working with an extremely caustic base that can and will burn you if you touch it. Noxious fumes are also released from the exothermic reaction that occurs when you mix the sodium hydroxide with water.
  3. Wear a face mask or leave the vicinity quickly after stirring the sodium hydroxide into the water. If you get any lye on your skin just wash it off quickly with copious amounts of cool water
  4. Divide the European Spa Salts - Fine Grain into two bowls of 10 oz. each.
  5. Weigh ingredients. Working in a sink, carefully and gradually pour Sodium Hydroxide into Distilled Water, stirring between pouring.
  6. In the microwave on high heat for about 1 minute 30 seconds, melt butters and oils. Be sure to use a bowl that is aluminum-free for soaping.
  7. In two separate cups, reserve a small amount of oil, about 1 ounce. Mix the Matte White Pigment Powder in one cup and the Orange Illite Clay in the other until they are well blended.
  8. When both the lye/water and oils are around 100°F, you are ready to begin soaping. Place your immersion blender in the oils and tap on the bottom of the bowl to "burp" it.
  9. Slowly and carefully pour your lye water over the shaft of the blender. Blend your ingredients until they come to a light trace.
  10. Add your fragrance oil to your batter and hand stir with a spatula. Add the white colored oils to your traced soap batter and hand stir or blend.
  11. Place a separate container on a scale and tare. Pour 14 oz. of batter into the separate container. Mix in the orange reserved oil to ONE of the bowls of soap.
  12. Pour one 10 oz. bowl of European Spa Salts into the orange soap batter and stir. The batter will become very thick. Fill 7 of the oval mold cavities halfway with the orange salt soap batter. Tap molds on the counter to even out the soap and make sure there are no air bubbles.
  13. Pour the second bowl of European Spa Salts into the white soap batter and stir. Pour the white salt soap batter on top of the orange soap. Tap molds on the counter. Cover both molds with plastic food wrap and set aside to saponify.
  14. After 24 hours the bars will be ready to unmold. Allow to cure for 4 weeks. Wrap with raffia if desired.
