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

Difficulty: Intermediate
Time: 2 hours

Yield: 3 pounds of soap

 

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 boil quickly, so be careful.
  2. Pour the soap into the Mini Daisy Column Mold. Place the mold into a tall container to keep it upright and allow the soap to fully cool and harden.
  3. While the embed hardens, 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 to fully combine. Pour about ⅓ 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.
  5. Once the embed is cool, remove it from the mold. Trim off any imperfections and cut the embed 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 – make sure it’s between 120-130° 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.
  8. While the soap in the mold cools and hardens, 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 boil quickly, so be careful. Once melted, pour the soap into the Mini Daisy Column Mold. Place the mold into a tall container to keep it upright and allow the soap to fully cool and harden.
  9. Once the second embed has cooled and hardened, remove it from the mold and cut into small pieces. Set aside.
  10. Chop 10 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap into small, uniform pieces. Place them into a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 15-20 second bursts. Add 0.2 ounces of Orange 10X Essential Oil and stir in thoroughly.
  11. 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 120-130° 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.
  12. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden. Remove the soap from the mold 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!

Extended Instructions

EQUIPMENT PREP: Disinfect your utensils by dipping them in a 5% bleach water solution and allowing to dry. This includes mixing containers, your stick blender, and any spoons or spatulas that may come in contact with your mask. Your products must be as free of germs, bacteria, and microbes as possible. To be safe, bleach water all your utensils.

CLAY PREP: In a small separate container, measure 3.5 ounces of kaolin clay and 1 ounce of purple Brazilian clay. If you like, you can add them to the same container. In the steps below I added them separately, but the purple Brazilian clay can be added along with the kaolin clay if you prefer.
