Description

This project is suitable for beginners with a few tips. First, the flower embed needs to be made ahead of time. Once it’s completely cool and firm, it can be placed inside the orange soap. Soap base starts melting around 120° F. Be mindful of the temperature, otherwise it can melt the flower embed.

Next, be sure to have 99% isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle nearby. It helps the layers stick and gets rid of bubbles, so you get perfect bars every time!

Uplifting Orange Soap Project
Orange 10X Essential Oil is fantastic in soap. In this project, it acts as a natural colorant and gives the bars a zesty scent that everybody loves.

Ingredients

10″ Silicone Loaf Mold
Mini Daisy Silicone Column Mold
9 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
55 oz. Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
1.4 oz. 10X Orange Essential Oil
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle

Instructions

1

Chop 4.5 ounces of Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base into small, uniform pieces. Place them in a small heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 5-10 second bursts. Small amounts of soap can burn quickly, so be careful.

2

Place the Mini Daisy Column Mold in a tall container to keep it upright and pour the soap in. Let it fully cool and harden for 1-3 hours.

3

Chop 45 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap into small, uniform pieces. Place them into a large heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts.

4

Add 1.2 ounces of Orange 10X Essential Oil into the melted soap and stir. Pour about 1/3 of the soap into the 10″ Silicone Loaf Mold and spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to cool and harden.

Remove the embed from the mold. Trim off any imperfections and cut it the same length as the inside of the 10″ Silicone Loaf Mold.

6

Make sure the orange soap inside the mold has cooled enough to support more soap on top. If so, place the embed in the mold slightly off-center.

7

Remelt the orange soap using 20 second bursts. When it's around 130° F, spritz the soap in the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol and gently pour the remaining orange soap into the mold. Spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to cool and harden for about 20 minutes.

Spritz the soap in the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol. Place the small daisy embeds on top of the soap in the mold. When the orange soap is around 130° F, gently pour it into the mold and spritz with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. If you have extra orange soap, pour it into another mold.

Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for 4-6 hours. Unmold and use a non-serrated knife to cut into bars. If you live in a very humid area, wrap the bars in plastic wrap to prevent glycerin dew. Enjoy!
