Making Melt & Pour Soap with Infusions and Tinctures

I’m so excited to finally use some of these tinctures and infusions that I decided to show you how to use these in Melt and Pour soap. I have collected my supplies and I’m ready to start.

Supplies for Melt and Pour Soap
• Melt and Pour Soap
• Infusions that I just created with oil and dried herb
• Tinctures that I created with alcohol and dried herb
• Method of heating the Melt and Pour soap: microwave, tea kettle, etc.
• Microwavable container or pot for melting soap
• Stirring spoon or similar tool
• Containers and labels for finished product

I decided to make my soaps in the small 2.7 oz. rectangular clam-shells; this will be perfect to take to shipping so they can send out samples with the orders.

I started with smaller chunks of the Melt and Pour soap, roughly the size of a softball (not necessarily softball shaped) and placed in a large pot on the stove set at medium heat until all melted.

I added 1% infused oil into melted soap; I measured about 570 grams of soap and 6 grams of the infused oil. This allowed me to fill approximately 8 of the clamshell containers that I chose. Whatever container you choose to use you will need to do a little calculation to determine the amount of soap to infused oil to use.

Once the melt and pour soap was melted I weighed my soap and added the infused oil, then mixed well before pouring into the containers. Wow, that was easy!

I did notice that some of my soaps had a few bubbles on the top. This is the perfect time to use the tinctures! I sprayed the tincture directly on top of the soap and Voilà! the bubbles disappeared and I was able to use the tincture in my melt and pour soap!

Melt & Pour Pink Swirl Soap

You know how you get a craving for a certain food? Sometimes I get that way with color. All of a sudden I need to have something with that color in my life. A shirt, scarf or even a bar of soap! This week I needed something pink. Which I find rather amusing as I am not a major fan of pink. I wanted something soft, light and delicate in color. Come join me as we satisfy this need for an adorable and gentle pink soap. 

In this soap, I attempted to create a swirl. It didn’t work so well. If you want to attempt a swirl, you may attempt one however if I were to make this again I would just make the entire soap pink instead of doing a swirl. However, this decision is up to you.

 

I would really like to master the skill of swirling. Do you have any thoughts, ideas or tips so that we all can become master swirl makers? Better yet, if you have any photos, please share them so we can all work on our swirling skills. I am so excited to see what everyones thoughts are! Are you ready for this adventure?

Plumberry Spice Celebration Soap

I love glitter. Okay, let me rephrase that. I love everything sparkly: glitter, jewelry, costumes, Christmas lights… I love it all. I go just nuts over something with sparkles as does my ten year old cousin. (At least I have someone to play dress up with. ;-) ) I have more beads, baubles and shiny things than what I know what to do with. I just keeping adding more to my collection. (My sister akins me to a crow.) I wanted to make a transparent soap that brings out the little girl in me that giggles and twirls around the kitchen in delight. Let’s head to the kitchen for giggles and glitter that we dreamed of as children. We can even have a tea party afterwards! How does that sound?This soap was originally created by some goofing around in the kitchen. I was playing around with mixing different colors of the Oil Soluble Lip Balm Colors in melt and pour. I got overly excited and added one too many colors. The result was this rich plum/brown color that I just loved. I added some glitter to make it “shine” and Plumberry Spice Fragrance Oil. I love it when playing around in the kitchen results in more inspiration. Don’t be afraid to play. It has amazing results!

Pina Smoothie Soap

I love to make things. I am always doing, creating or dreaming up something new. The problem lies in time. I don’t have enough! I love to make things that are quick, easy and painless. The only painful thing I found about this soap is how delicious it smells when you are mixing it together. Who is ready for a Pina Smoothie? I know I am. Come join me in the blog kitchen for a delectable soap. 

Pina Coladas are made from pineapple juice, coconut milk, rum and ice. I wanted a soap that would appear as if it had coconut milk and pineapple. What easier way to do this than by adding calendula petals to white soap? My hope in making this soap was that the melt and pour soap would continue to appear white while the calendula petals would make the soap appear as if there is pineapple in it. The first batch I made, I stirred to soap gently and immediately poured, the soap appears more white. When making a second soap I was distracted and I didn’t pour the soap immediately. (I have work induced A.D.D. I don’t think I ever get to do a project from start to finish without interupption. Some days, I even feel like a headless chicken with all of the running around that I do.) After about ten minutes I came back to the soap to pour it, to my surprise, the melt and pour soap was more yellow than white! I did expect the soap to color over time but the ten minute yellow was not what I expected to see. What do you think? Which do you like best, the white or yellow soap?

Ewww! Brain Soaps

Yesterday, we made some very realistic looking soap dentures and we are going to round out our creepy soap collection by making soap that looks just like miniature brains.

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base (We will use white)
Black Onyx Dry Color
Purple Raspberry Dry Color
Liquid Glycerin
Fragrance (Optional)
Equipment
Scale
Glass Beakers for melted soap
Soap Spoon
1 oz Dropper Bottles
Transfer Pipettes
Measuring Spoons
a 4 cavity Brain Freeze mold from Fred & Friends
Spray bottle filled with Rubbing Alcohol (70% or 91%)
Micro Spatula, small Dental pick or fine sculpture tool(if needed)

To make these soaps, I did need to do some work just to prepare the colors I would use. I mixed the Black Onyx Dry color with Liquid Glycerin and then mixed well. From now on, I will refer to this as Liquid Black Onyx color. I also created 1 ounce bottles of extra concentrated color by putting 1 teaspoon of the Purple Raspberry Dry Color in a bottle and then topping the bottle off with water. In the rest of the tutorial, I will refer to this as Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry. I set the colors aside after mixing for 24 hours before using to make sure there were not any clumps before using these colors.

Melt about 5 ounces of white Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base. This will be the soap we will use for the brains. Once the soap is completely melted, I added about 5 drops of Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry and 1/4 teaspoon of Liquid Black Onyx color. This helped achieve the purplish pink color that I desired for the brain.

Spritz each mold with Rubbing Alcohol before filling to prevent any air bubbles on the exterior of the brain. Gently fill the mold with the soap and repeat until all four cavities have been filled. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles. Allow the soap to cool completely before removing from the mold. I left the soap in the mold for about 2 hours while I worked on other projects before un-molding the brains.

These brains will pop out very easily if you pull on the top edges of the mold to allow air around the soap and then push on the top of the mold to force the soap brain out of the mold. Be forewarned! These soap brains do like to bounce across the counters!

You can leave the brains as they are now, or you can add some fun detail to make them look even more realistic. Simply take a small paintbrush and some of the Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry and then paint the crevices of the brain with the dye. It will stain the soap and yet easily wash off hands.

Presto! You now have 4 little brains to use as soap and gift to various friends and family. I think this would be a perfect gift to any college student to remind them to keep their minds on school or even a pre-med student for giggles and grins.

Don’t be limited by making the brains simply normal looking, make them any color you want!

Enjoy!

Andee

Just Soap Dentures

On Friday I showed you how to make the best looking Jack-o-Lantern soaps and today, we will continue our Halloween themed soaps by making soaps that look just like some dentures!

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base (We will use white)
Black Onyx Dry Color
Purple Raspberry Dry Color
Lemon Yellow Dry Color
Liquid Glycerin
Fragrance (Optional)
Equipment
Scale
Glass Beakers for melted soap
Soap Spoon
1 oz Dropper Bottles
Transfer Pipettes
Measuring Spoons
4 cavity Frozen Smiles mold from Fred & Friends
Spray bottle filled with Rubbing Alcohol (70% or 91%)
Micro Spatula, small Dental pick or fine sculpture tool(if needed)

To make these soaps, I did need to do some work just to prepare the colors I would use. I mixed the Black Onyx Dry color with Liquid Glycerin and then mixed well. From now on, I will refer to this as Liquid Black Onyx color. I also created 1 ounce bottles of extra concentrated color by putting 1 teaspoon of the Purple Raspberry Dry Color and Lemon Yellow Dry Color in separate bottles and then topping the bottles off with water. In the rest of the tutorial, I will refer to these as Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry and Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow. I set the colors aside after mixing for 24 hours before using to make sure there were not any clumps before using these colors.

Melt a small amount of white Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base, about 1/2 ounce. This will be the soap we will use for the teeth. Once the soap is completely melted, I added a small sliver of yellow colored soap that had been left over from making the Jack-o-Lanterns. I did this because teeth are not naturally pure white but they do have slight natural discoloration and I wanted my dentures to look as realistic as possible.

Using a transfer pipette, gently fill the small cavities for the teeth. Don’t worry if you accidentally splash. If you do, allow the soap to cool completely and gently pull it off with your small hand tool and toss right back into the beaker. I discovered that the best way to get rid of the any bubbles is to suck them up with the transfer pipette. Remove any bubbles and fill in with white soap to prevent the teeth from looking like there are cavities. Allow the soap to cool completely while you prepare gum colored soap.

Melt about 10 ounces of soap either white or transparent and color it however you desire. I used about 5 drops of Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry, 1 drop of Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow and 1/4 teaspoon Liquid Black Onyx color. Once the soap has reached the desired color and the teethhave cooled completely, spritz the mold and teeth with rubbing alcohol to allow the layers to adhere. Gently pour a thin layer and set aside. This will prevent the gums from bleeding into the teeth due to the hot soap being poured into the mold. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles and allow to cool. Once the first layer of gum colored soap has cooled, spritz with rubbing alcohol and add more soap till you fill the mold with the desired amount of soap. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles and allow to cool completely.

Gently remove the soap from the molds. Voilà! You now have an amazing set of 4 dentures or 2 whole sets of teeth. Place them in any bathroom to creep out your family and friends!

You can even make vampire, zombie or Swamp Monster teeth! Give it a go and see what you can make!

Enjoy!

Jack-o-Lantern Soaps

I’m so excited to share this tutorial for the Mini Jack-o-Lantern mold from Wilton. This mold is so cute and there are so many ways to make these Jack-o-Lantern soaps. I’ll show you my favorite method to make these and why it is so easy!

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base (We will use both white and transparent)
Black Onyx Dry Color
Purple Raspberry Dry Color
Lemon Yellow Dry Color
Liquid Glycerin
Fragrance (Optional)
Equipment
Scale
Glass Beakers for melted soap
Soap Spoon
1 oz Dropper Bottles
Transfer Pipettes
Measuring Spoons
6 cavity Mini Jack-o-Lantern mold from Wilton
Spray bottle filled with Rubbing Alcohol (70% or 91%)
Micro Spatula, small Dental pick or fine sculpture tool(if needed)

To make these soaps, I did need to do some work just to prepare the colors I would use. I mixed the Black Onyx Dry color with Liquid Glycerin and then mixed well. From now on, I will refer to this as Liquid Black Onyx color. I also created 1 ounce bottles of extra concentrated color by putting 1 teaspoon of the Purple Raspberry Dry Color and Lemon Yellow Dry Color in separate bottles and then topping the bottles off with water. In the rest of the tutorial, I will refer to these as Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry and Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow. I set the colors aside after mixing for 24 hours before using to make sure there were not any clumps before using these colors.

Melt a small amount of Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base, about 1/2 ounce. This will be the soap we will color black for the faces. I did this twice so I could have both yellow and black faces. I’ve found that the best soap for the black faces is the transparent because I am not fighting the white colored soap. Once the soap is completely melted, add a about 1/2 teaspoon of the Liquid Black Onyx color and stir until thoroughly mixed. Color the other soap yellow by using about 6 drops of the Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow. After mixing the Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow into the soap I decided that the soap was too easy to see through, so I added a small sliver of the White Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base to give the soap some opacity.

Using a transfer pipette, gently fill the small cavities for the eyes, nose and mouth. Don’t worry if you accidentally splash the rest of the pumpkin face. If you do, allow the soap to cool completely and gently pull it off with your small hand tool and toss right back into the beaker. I discovered that the best way to get rid of the any bubbles is to suck them up with the transfer pipette. Repeat until all of your pumpkins faces have been filled in. Allow the soap to cool completely while you prepare pumpkin colored soap.

Melt about 24 ounces of soap either white or transparent and color it however you desire. I used about 15 drops of the Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry and 30 drops of the Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow. Once the soap has reached the desired color and the faces have cooled completely, spritz the mold and faces with rubbing alcohol to allow the layers to adhere. Gently pour a thin layer and set aside. This will prevent the faces from bleeding into the pumpkin due to the hot soap being poured into the mold. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles and allow to cool. Once the first layer of pumpkin colored soap has cooled, spritz with rubbing alcohol and add more soap till you fill the mold with the desired amount of soap. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles and allow to cool completely.

Gently remove the pumpkins from the molds. Voilà! You now have an amazing set of 6 Jack-o-Lantern soaps.

Remember that the black color may possibly stain washcloths, so be cautious with the use of black. You can use other colors, like yellow or even green, depending on the kind of Jack-o-Lanterns you want to make. Don’t forget that pumpkins themselves come in different colors, so you may want a Lumina Jack-o-Lantern (ghostly white) or a Jarrahdale Jack-o-Lantern (grey-green). These Jack-o-Lanterns are truly limited in appearance only by your imagination!

My first pumpkins looked horrible, but you can just practice to make your pumpkins look amazing. You may be asking why my pumpkins looked horrible and I’ll tell you that I learned lots of things about hot soap while playing with this mold. When I first made these soaps, I waited until my faces cooled and then poured the soap to fill the mold. After the soaps completely cooled, I discovered that I had melted portions of the faces instead and this had made a mess of my pumpkin. Then I remembered that my best melt & pour soap experiences before had needed many thin layers to protect the soap I wanted to show off without melting the soap. If you follow my directions, you shouldn’t have any pumpkins that look horrible!

If you did have a Jack-o-Lantern and part of the face bled into the pumpkin colored soap, you can scrape off the soap that is colored differently by using your small scraper, pick or micro spatula. Just scrape in a vertical manner from the top of the face to the bottom to give your Jack-o-Lantern a “pumpkin” striped appearance.

Enjoy!

Grease Monkey Melt & Pour Soap



I love grease monkey soaps. I really like to get into my gardening or other messy jobs. I then have some serious clean up. A grease monkey soap does the job perfectly. I have an overwhelming stash of melt and pour soap and I wondered if I could make a melt and pour grease monkey soap. So I headed to the kitchen for some testing.

Here is the equipment you will need for this recipe.

Equipment
Scale
Microwave Safe Container
Spoons
Molds for soap

Here are the ingredients you will need for this recipe.

Ingredients
Melt and Pour Soap
Pumice, Fine
Ground Vanilla Bean Specks

Here is the recipe in ounces.

Ingredients
16 oz Melt and Pour Soap
.66 oz Pumice, Fine
.02 Ground Vanilla Bean Specks

Gently melt the soap until liquid. Once liquid add the Ground Vanilla Bean Specks. Allow the soap to cool until more viscous. Add the pumice and stir well. Pour the viscous soap into mold and allow to cool. Remove from mold and use.

In my first test, I only added .22 oz of Pumice. My soap was also very hot. My pumice sank to the bottom of my mold (the top of my soap), then cooled. I wanted a soap that had pumice through out the bar and as I looked at my bar, I decided I wanted more pumice. I multiplied my pumice by three and I allowed my soap to cool more before adding my pumice and pouring. Down at the bottom you can see the comparison of these soaps. The one on the right is the desired soap. I grabbed a bar and gave my hands a good scrub down to test. It worked great! So simple to make and exactly what the mechanic ordered.
