Directions:
WARNING: 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.
  1. Measure water and lye in separate polypropylene containers. Very carefully, pour lye into water and stir until lye is dissolved. Set aside in safe area.
  2. Weigh oils and butter and place in microwave safe glass bowl. Microwave on high until butters are melted. (Our oil was getting too hot and the cocoa butter was still not melting, so we scooped out the cocoa butter into a cup and heated until it was melted before adding back to the rest of the oils.)
  3. Prepare your orange colorant by taking 2 tablespoons of oils and placing in a beaker. Add the Matte Yellow and Matte Red Pigment Powders and stir well. 
  4. To a plastic beaker, weigh and add the fragrance oil with the Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Stir well and set aside .
  5. When both the lye water and oils have cooled to around 100°F, you can start soaping.
  6. Place stick blender in the oils and tap it on the bottom of the bowl to "burp" it and release any air bubbles.
  7. Pour the lye water over the shaft of the stick blender. Carefully blend your oils and lye water until the mixture comes to a very light trace.
  8. Slowly add your fragrance oil while stirring the soap with a spatula.
  9. NOTE: The Spiced Pumpkin fragrance oil causes the soap to turn orange. If you want the top of your soap to be very white, then wait until after you pour some soap into another cup to add the fragrance oil.
  10. In a separate polypropylene cup, pour about 1 cup of traced soap. To the main pot, add the reserved oil that has been colored orange and stir well. Pour this into your loaf mold and then gently tap mold on the counter to release any air bubbles.
  11. Add the Titanium Dioxide for Oil to the reserved soap in the polypropylene measuring cup. Use the stick blender to incorporate, then use the spatula to make sure the color is completely stirred in.
  12. Carefully pour this along the top of your loaf. You can now play with texture on the top, making it look like whipped cream, if you like. A sprinkle of Matte Brown Pigment Powder or Brown Mica Powder down the center of the loaf can look like sprinkled cinnamon.
  13. Carefully insulate the sides of the loaf with a towel. Allow to sit for 24 hours, uncovered.
  14. Carefully unmold the loaf and slice into 8 one-inch pieces. Allow the bars to sit on a cooling rack for 4-6 weeks to cure fully.
  15. Package as desired and label accordingly.
To Use: Lather with water onto the skin. Rinse off. Avoid contact with eyes.
