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. 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. Prepare the lye solution by weighing the water and lye in two separate containers. Pour the lye into the water, carefully mix in a well-ventilated area and set aside to cool while you prepare your oils.
  4. Measure the oils and butters in a large mixing bowl and melt in the microwave. Set aside.
  5. Measure out the Crimson Red Wine Mica Powder in the first funnel pitcher, the Chocolate Brown Mica Powder and Amethyst Purple Mica Powder into the second pitcher and leave the third pitcher empty. Add a small amount of the melted oils to each cup with mica powder and blend well using mini mixer.
  6. When the oils are around 100° F, you can add the lye mixture to the oils. Stick blend until incorporated.
  7. Into the second glass measuring bowl pour approximately half (20 oz.) of the batter. To this bowl add your fragrance oil and fig powder and stick blend until it has reached a light trace. Then remove the shaft of the stick blender and rinse clean. 
  8. Pour the remaining batter evenly into the 3 funnel pitchers.
  9. Stick blend all 3 containers to fully incorporate the color and additives (mix from lightest color to darkest so the colors are not changed).
  10. Pour the fragranced soap with fig powder into your mold. This should fill approximately half of the loaf mold.
  11. Then taking each color perform a “drop swirl” by pouring the colors in lines one after another and dropping the batter here and there. The batter may begin to thicken up which is okay. Keep pouring and repeat until all batter is used.
  12. Tap the mold on the counter to release any air bubbles. Texture the top as desired with a spoon or swirl it.
  13. Allow to set at least 24 hours or longer until soap is firm enough to unmold and cut.
  14. Let soap cure 4-6 weeks.
  15. Package and label accordingly.
