Project Description

This recipe is made with rosehip powder and rose clay, which creates a soft pink color with plenty of skin-loving properties.

Rosehip powder is full of vitamin C, which makes it a popular additive for beauty recipes. Interestingly, it’s not the rosy color you’d imagine. Instead, rosehip powder is a mustard yellow hue that changes to burgundy in cold process and melt and pour soap.

The recipe is made with poppy seeds add texture and exfoliation and scented with a fresh combination of lemongrass essential oil and lavender essential oil.

Rosehip Melt and Pour Soap Project

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2 pounds of soap

Rosehip powder is full of vitamin C, which makes it a popular additive for beauty recipes. Interestingly, it’s not the rosy color you’d imagine. Instead, rosehip powder is a mustard yellow hue that changes to burgundy in cold process and melt and pour soap.

The recipe is made with poppy seeds add texture and exfoliation and scented with a fresh combination of lemongrass essential oil and lavender essential oil.

 

You will need:

  • Silicone Column Mold
  • 32 oz. White Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • 4 tsp. Rose Clay
  • 2 tsp. Rosehip Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Poppy Seeds
  • 0.3 oz. Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
  • 0.3 oz. Lemongrass Essential Oil
  • 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle
  • Optional: Crinkle Cutter

COLOR PREP: Dispersing powders in alcohol helps them mix into the melt and pour soap without clumps. Mix 4 teaspoons of rose clay with 1 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol and 2 teaspoons of rosehip powder with 1 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol. Set colorants aside. Pour alcohol in the spray bottle and set aside.

Follow these steps:

1

Chop 32 ounces of White Melt and Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Place all the soap into a large heat-safe bowl. Place the bowl into the microwave and melt the soap using 30 second bursts. Between each burst, stir the soap to help it melt evenly and prevent overheating. 

2

Add all of the dispersed rose clay and rosehip powder to the melted soap and stir well.

3

Add 0.3 ounces of lavender 40/42 essential oil, 0.3 ounces of lemongrass essential oil, and 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds. Stir to fully mix in the ingredients.

4

Move the mold to where you’d like the soap to cool and harden. If it's moved after the soap is poured in, the seal can break and cause a leak.

Check the temperature of the soap. If it’s above 130° F, the poppy seeds may fall to the bottom of the mold. Once the soap is about 125° F, carefully pour into the mold. Use one hand to steady the mold as you pour to prevent it from falling over.

5

Spritz the top with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.

6

Unmold the soap and use a crinkle cutter to cut it into bars. You can use a non-serrated knife if you prefer a smooth look. Wrap the soap in plastic wrap to prevent glycerin dew and enjoy.
