Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: 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 all safety methods of working with dangerous chemicals, it is simply a soap recipe for advanced soapmakers.
  2. Mix Coconut Milk Powder into water until dissolved. Pour into a small silicone mold or ice cube tray and freeze.
  3. 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.
  4. When milk is frozen, measure the Sodium Hydroxide Flakes into a plastic mixing bowl and slowly add to the milk cubes. Mix until all the lye flakes are completely dissolved. Set aside.
  5. Measure the oils and butters in a large mixing bowl and melt in the microwave. Set aside.
  6. In 2 separate funnel pitchers, measure out the Gingerbread Brown Mica and the Matte White Pigment Powder - For Oil. Add a small amount of the melted oils to each cup and blend well.
  7. In a small plastic beaker, measure out the Shimmering Dark Gold Mica Powder and set aside (this will be blended into the large pot of soap batter).
  8. Mix the Salted Caramel Macchiato Fragrance Oil and Vanilla Color Stabilizer-CP Soap together in a plastic beaker. (This needs to sit for 2 minutes but should not sit any longer than 15 minutes total.)
  9. When the oils are below 100° F, you can add the milk/lye mixture to the oils. Stick blend until incorporated.
  10. Stir in the fragrance/stabilizer mixture by hand. 
  11. Pour approximately 14 oz. of soap batter into the 2 containers with premixed color (powder/oils). 
  12. Add the premeasured amount of Shimmering Dark Gold Mica to the remaining uncolored batter. 
  13. Stick blend all 3 containers to fully incorporate the color (mix from lightest color to darkest so the colors are not changed).
  14. Pour the gingerbread brown colored batter in 2 spots and the white colored batter in 2 spots in the large bowl of batter (with the Shimmering Dark Gold Mica). We recommend pouring in halves so that the color will stay in one area. 
  15. When all the batter is back in the large bowl begin pouring into the mold. The batter will swirl itself as it pours. We swirled the soap further by inserting the chopstick and moving it in a back and forth motion, then circling around the outside edges of the mold to produce a “circling swirl” effect.
  16. Tap the mold on the counter to release any air bubbles. Sprinkle top with salt. 
  17. Allow to set at least 24 hours or longer until soap is firm enough to unmold and cut. We do not recommend insulating the mold because this may overheat the coconut milk.  
  18. Let soap cure 4-6 weeks.
  19. Package and label accordingly.
