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 the silicone loaf mold on a cookie sheet. This will give the mold stability should it need to be moved.
  3. Weigh 40 oz. of the Coconut Milk Soap Base. Cut into small chunks and place in a large glass measuring bowl.
  4. Place in microwave and heat for short bursts until soap has completely melted. DO NOT BOIL. Take out and stir soap to be sure it is completely melted.
  5. In a small beaker or container, measure 1 oz. plus 7 ml of fragrance oil. In a separate container measure 0.5 oz. plus 3.5 ml of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Mix together and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Do not store product. Must be used within 15 minutes of mixing.
  6. Add fragrance/stabilizer mixture to melted soap. Stir or gently whisk until well-blended into melted soap.
  7. Add 7 drops of Stained Glass Sea Blue-Green Liquid Color and 5 drops of Stained Glass Forest Green Liquid Color. Mix well.
  8. Place a bowl on top of a digital scale and tare to zero. Pour 16 oz. of colored soap into bowl. Add 8 Tbsp. of luffa powder to the 16 oz. of soap and mix well. Pour into loaf mold and let set up. Cover remaining melted soap.
  9. We allowed the poured soap to start to harden. Using a spatula, we then shaped this soap so that it had a more uneven top.
  10. When you are happy with this layer, spritz with rubbing alcohol and cover with remaining soap. Allow this to form a thin skin then top with Bath Water Crystals.
  11. Allow to set up at room temperature. Once the soap is set up, unmold, slice and wrap immediately. Label soap accordingly.

WSP Questions And Answers

"On step five of the recipe, it says to measure the fragrance oil in one container and in another to measure out the vanilla color stabilizer plus .5 ml of something else. Is this .5 ml fragrance oil? Can you clarify please? Also, if you add to much vanilla color stabilizer yo the soap, will it have an adverse affect? Thank you :)"

"What other fragrances vanilla free could I use with this soap? I've got about 1 1/2 pound left I'd like to use a pink sea salt. I'm new to the soap making thing and don't want to make any mistakes."
