Clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, a face mask, safety glasses, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Step 1: Prepare your lye solution. Allow the lye solution to cool to room temperature.
Step 2: While you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, prepare your soaping oils. Once your oils are melted, allow them to cool to room temperature.
Step 3: While you are waiting for your oils and lye solution to cool, prepare the colorants listed above.
Step 4: When both the soaping oils and the lye solution are at room temperature, combine them. Next, stick blend the soap batter to emulsify the ingredients. Then, add the Costa Rican Rainforest Fragrance Oil. Once again, stick blend your soap batter to incorporate the scent.
Step 5: Separate the soap batter into four equal portions. Add one of the colorants to each bowl. Blend the contents of each bowl.
Step 6: Pour the soap batter into the squeeze bottles. One bottle should contain the white soap batter, another light green, the third dark green, and the fourth the sand-colored soap batter.
Step 7: Now you will need your popsicle stick. Place your mold in front of you vertically. Place the popsicle stick into the soap in the bottom left corner of the mold. Run the popsicle stick to the upper left corner then to the right about 1 inch and back down. Then, move it to the right again about an inch and back up to the top of the mold. Repeat this process until you have reached the left side of the mold. Remove the popsicle stick.
Step 8: Tap the mold on the counter to release any air bubbles. Allow the soap to set up before removing it from the mold.
Step 9: Once the soap has set up, remove it from the mold. Cut the soap. We cut ours into eight bars. Allow the soap to cure.
We hope that you enjoy this Costa Rican Rainforest cold process soap recipe!
