21 Celebration Soap

Birthdays are exciting and there is nothing as wonderful as a good birthday celebration. I wanted to make a soap that said all of that and more. I wanted a soap that remind the user of a party every time they use it. I decided to make a swirled soap with glitter that is scented with our 21 Fragrance Oil. It is a spectacular soap. It is an exciting celebration that I hope you can join. Meet me in the kitchen and we will have a party! 

When choosing the characteristics I wanted this soap to have, I decided I wanted color. Ahem. Sorry. Frog on the keyboard. I mean, I wanted COLOR. I decided I wanted a bright pink on a strong white background. I wanted this soap to pop, and pop it does. I wanted drama and what is drama without glitter? (After all, this is a party.) I wanted bold fun color and well, I got it. I choose to use the fragrance 21. It is fun, young and flirty. Come join me so we can all be 21!

Set up both oil and lye kits prior to making the soap. Gently heat the oil kits until they are liquid. While the oil kits are heating, mix your lye and water. In separate colors, premix your colors. Pour the lye solution into a soap bucket with an oil kit. Mix to light trace. Add the color, glitter and fragrance and pour the soap into a mold. Mix the second batch of soap to light trace adding the color, glitter and fragrance. Pour into mold and swirl using a spoon. Allow the soap to sit for 24 hours then cut. Allow the soap to cure. longer curing time will result in a harder bar. Enjoy!

    Happy birthday to her.

    Does glitter actually show up in an opaque soap?

    Thanks, Will

    Yes. The glitter does pick up the light. It isn’t like the soap is covered in gems, but the is something that catches the eye. You can’t figure out quite what it is until you pick it up and look at it.

    I can’t wait to use our other colors of glitter is Cold Process Soap.

    Best,

    Taylor
