Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE:  If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. Place silicone loaf mold on a cookie sheet. This will give mold stability when it is moved. 
  3. Weigh 40 oz. of Premium Shea Butter MP Soap. Cut into small chunks and place in a large bowl.  
  4. Weigh 2 oz. the Basic Clear MP Soap, cut into chunks and place in a second glass measuring cup. 
  5. Weigh 1 oz. of Lavender Buds and 1 oz. of Rosemary-Botanical and place in a bowl. Gently mix together.
  6. Place 8 oz. of the Premium Shea Butter Soap chunks and place in a glass measuring cup.  Add a small sliver of the Woodland Green Soap Color Bar. Place in microwave and heat until soap has completely melted.  Mix with spatula or spoon to blend in the color bar. Soap should be a nice light minty green color.
  7. Add 1 ml of the Lavender Essential Oil and 1 ml of Rosemary Essential Oil and mix. Pour soap into the Regular Loaf Silicone Mold. Spritz top of soap with alcohol to release any surface bubbles. Place mold in freezer for 10 minutes to set up. 
  8. Place another 8 oz. of shea butter soap into glass measuring cup. Place in microwave and heat until soap has melted.  
  9. To melted soap, add 1 ml of Lavender Essential Oil and 1 ml of Rosemary Essential Oil and stir to incorporate.  This layer will remain white. 
  10. Remove soap from freezer. Spritz top of soap with alcohol to ensure the layers will stick together.
  11. Check soap temperature of second layer to be sure it is no hotter than 125°F. Pour over green layer, spritz with alcohol and place back into freezer to harden.
  12. Weigh another 8 oz. of shea butter soap and heat until melted.  Add 1/4 of the Matte Lavender Soap Color Cube and stir into the melted soap. Heat soap further if the color bar has not melted completely.  
  13. Add 1 ml of the Lavender Essential Oil and 1 ml of Rosemary Essential Oil and mix.
  14. Remove soap from freezer. Spritz top of soap with alcohol to ensure the layers will stick together.
  15. Check temperature of melted soap to be sure it is no hotter than 125°F. Pour over white layer, spritz with alcohol and place back into freezer to harden.
  16. Repeat above steps 8-11 for next layer (white).
  17. Repeat above steps 12-15 for top layer (green).  Do not place in freezer but let soap harden at room temperature.  
  18. After top layer has hardened, heat the 2 oz. of Basic Clear MP soap just until melted. 
  19. Check that soap temperature is at or below 125°F, then spritz the top of soap loaf with alcohol. Pour the clear soap over the top and immediately sprinkle on the lavender and rosemary blend to decorate the loaf.
  20. Allow soap to completely set up.
  21. Carefully remove soap from mold by gently pulling sides away from soap. Place loaf on its side, then carefully push from bottom to release the soap.  Place in mitre box, if available, and cut into 1 inch slices.
  22. Wrap in plastic wrap or packaging of choice.
  23. Label product accordingly.
