Step 1:  Prepare your lye solution.  Allow the lye solution to cool to 110F.  

Step 2:  While you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, prepare your soaping oils.  Once your oils are melted, allow them cool to 110F.
 
Step 3:  While you are waiting for your oils and lye solution to cool, prepare the colorants as listed above for the CP soap batter.  
 
Step 4:  Prepare the colorant for the MP soap.  In a small bowl, weigh 1 gram of the rose clay.  Mix 12 grams of the vegetable glycerin.  Stir to blend.  
 
Step 5:  Weigh out and melt the oatmeal soap base.  Once melted, add the vegetable glycerin mixture you prepared.  Stir.
Step 6:  Place the ribbon awareness mold in front of you.  Use a disposable pipette to fill the ribbon portion of the mold.  Spray with alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Allow the soap to set up before moving on. 
 
Step 7:  At this time, we will begin preparing the cold process soap portion.  Be sure that both your soaping oils and lye solution are at a temperature of approximately 110F.  They need to be within 10 degrees of each other.
 
Step 8:  Combine your lye solution to the soaping oils.  Stick blend to emulsify them.
 
Step 9:  Add the lavender essential oil.  Once again, stick blend.
 
Step 10:  Separate the soap batter into 3 equal portions.  To the first bowl, add the kaolin clay mixture.  To the second bowl, add one of the rose clay mixtures.  Finally, to the third bowl, add the last rose clay mixture.  Stick blend the contents of each bowl.  When mixing, start with the white soap batter and move to the bowls containing the rose clay.
 
Step 11:  Next, when your soap batter is at trace, place the bowl of white soap batter in front of you.  We will be using an In the Pot Swirl technique.  Pour small amounts of the light pink soap batter in various spots throughout the bowl.  Then, move to the dark pink soap batter.  Pour small amounts of the dark pink batter directly on top of the light pink batter.  Repeat this process, if needed, until you have used all of the soap batter.
 
Step 12:  Use a rubber spatula to swirl the soap in the bowl.  Once you are happy with your swirls, pour the soap into each cavity of the mold.
 
Step 13:  To prevent gel, place your soap in the freezer overnight.  Then, remove it from the freezer and from the mold.
 
Step 14:  Allow the soap to cure for 4-6 weeks.
