Recipe for Blackberries:
150 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
7 grams Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil
2 drops FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet
2 drop FUN Soap Colorant Neon Pink
3 drops FUN Soap Colorant Tomato Red
Step 1: First, weigh out and melt 150 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Melt it in the microwave in 30 second increments. Stir gently in between until all the soap is melted. Once your soap is ready, add the pink, red, and purple fun soap colorants. Stir well.
Step 2: Next, add 7 grams of the Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil. Then, stir well to incorporate the scent. Next, pour all of the soap into your raspberries mold. If you have any air bubbles in your soap, spritz the soap with alcohol. Allow the soap to set up at room temperature.
Cold Process Soap Ingredients:
323 grams of Water
116 grams of Lye
212 grams of Coconut Oil 76
128 grams of Avocado Oil
43 grams of Grapeseed Oil
85 grams of Cocoa Butter
85 grams of Meadowfoam Seed Oil
128 grams of Shea Butter
170 grams Sunflower Oil
64 grams Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil
43 grams of Sodium Lactate
Cold Process Soap Colorants:
6 grams FUN Soap Colorant Neon Pink
3 grams of Fun Soap Colorant Tomato Red
7 grams of Fun Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet
7 grams of Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible
Step 1: Prep your work area and put on your safety gear and apron.
Step 2: Now, make your lye solution. Then, weigh out and melt the soaping ingredients. Once melted, separate out 25 grams and place it in one of your mixing bowls. Then, add the 7 grams of titanium dioxide to this and stir well to make a white paste. This will be used to color the white portion of the soap.
Step 3: When the lye solution has cooled, add the sodium lactate.
Step 4: While you are waiting on temperatures, in one of your mixing bowls weigh out your ultramarine violet, tomato red, and neon pink soap colorants. Set this bowl aside. Also, remove your raspberries from the mold and trim off any excess soap.
Step 5: When both the soaping oils and the lye solution are ready to be combined, do so. Then, stick blend for emulsion. Next, add the Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil. Once again, stick blend your soap batter to incorporate the scent.
Step 6: Now, separate your soap batter. You will need three bowls. To two of the bowls, add 300 grams of soap batter. One bowl will remain uncolored. To one of the other bowls, add the titanium dioxide mixture. Then, stick blend to incorporate and separate it. Once you have mixed your white soap batter, separate out about 100 grams of batter, adding it to the third bowl. This will be used to top the soap later. Set it aside for now. Finally, to the bowl that contains the remaining larger portion of batter, add the pink/purple colorant you prepared. Stick blend to fully disperse the colorant.
Step 7: Then, start pouring the soap in the mold. You want to pour stripes of color. So, with your mold in front of you, pour a strip of the pink soap. Then, a smaller strip of the uncolored. Finally, pour a strip of the white soap batter using the bowl with the larger potion of white batter. Repeat this process until you have filled the mold.
Step 8: Now, you will need a wooden skewer. Place the tip of the skewer into the soap mold. Then, move the skewer in a circular motion in order to create swirls throughout the soap batter. Once you are satisfied with your swirls, remove the skewer. Finally, gently tap the mold on your table top to remove an air bubbles.
Step 9: Once the remaining white soap has thickened to a frosting consistency, place it in your Ziploc bag. Seal the bag and cut the corner. Use the bag just like a decorating bag to add a small dollop of white soap onto each bar. You will need a total of nine dollops.
Step 10: Place 1-3 raspberries on top of each bar of soap. This recipe filled the raspberries mold one time, creating 23 raspberries.
Step 11: After 48 hours, remove the soap from the mold. When ready cut the soap slices. Allow them to further cure before using.
