Confetti Soap, Part 1 3

My three soaps after finishing the last batch.

My three soaps after finishing the last batch.

I love playing with confetti, but I absolutely hate cleaning it up. Why not make a cold process Confetti Soap that embodies the joy of playing with confetti while keeping the mess to a minimum? Today, we will make the colored cold process soap for our confetti soap. I will use our pigments to prevent bleeding colors. I am going to use the same recipe that we use for our test batches.

Collect needed supplies:
Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Pigments of your choice (I’m going to be using Mint Green, Lavender Fields, and Amethyst Pink
Fragrance Oil of your choice (I’m going to be using Pears & Berries Fragrance Oil)

Recipe in ounces:
8 ounces weight Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
4 ounces weight Coconut Oil
4 ounces weight Olive Oil

2.2 ounces Sodium Hydroxide
6 fluid ounces Water

0.2 ounces of Pears & Berries Fragrance Oil

1 teaspoon of desired color

Weighing time: 8 minutes
Adding lye to water: 5 seconds, followed by 60 seconds of stirring
Heating of oils time: 2 minutes
Pouring lye solution into the fat mixture: 5 seconds
Using immersion blender to mix soap solution: 90 seconds
Pour into mold: 10 seconds
Allow soap to rest: 24 hours

I will make my three color batches today, and tomorrow I will show you how to make the confetti soap.

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    These are just three of the drawer organizers in the Rubbermaid line that is 9 inches long and 3 inches wide. It is product number 2915 in this line of products.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks. I haunt the store isles looking for any sturdy type of box or crate that may serve as a unique soap mold. I never thought about Rubbermaid.
