How To Make Funky Flower Power Soap

Flower power soap

Recipe:

  • Palm Oil: 6 oz
  • Olive Oil: 6 oz
  • Coconut Oil: 5 oz
  • Castor Oil: 1 oz
  • Water: 6 oz
  • Lye: 2.5 oz

Make your lye solution and set in a water bath to cool.
Melt the coconut oil and palm oil and let cool.

While things are cooling down measure out your mica into plastic cups.
I used TKB micas Antique Gold, Brilliant Gold and Raspberry POP. Scoop out
about 2-3 pea sizes. It seems like alot but you really want the colors to pop.

Add your soft oils to your melted oils and mix.

Add the lye solution.

You’ll want to mix with your stick blender just until emulsified.
You don’t want to see any signs of trace. It really takes a couple of pulses
(depending on your recipe) and then stir by hand for a bit until you see a solid emulsification.

Make sure your mold is ready and your coloring cups are ready.

Pour a bit of your soap mix into each color cup and stir until its nice
and mixed together. Leave this part unscented. Adding scent to your
colored soap can make it get too thick. I pour to the first line of the cups. Probably about 1/4 cup.

Add your scent and color. I used an EO blend Lavender, Tea Tree and
Geranium for the scent and TKB Breath of Spring Mica for the color.

**Make sure you don’t use a fragrance that accelerates!**

Pour your base into your mold.

Then pour your colors into squeeze bottles (didn’t get a pic but you’ll see in the next steps).

Pick our your flower’s outer color and draw circles on your base.

Draw circles with your next color just inside the first color.

Then repeat with your third color, but fill in the whole middle.

Then take a skewer and from the outside of the outer color drag inward to just
inside the middle color. This forms the petals.

Start on outside…

…and drag inward.

Repeat…repeat…repeat…as quick as you can. I wipe on a paper towel between each stroke
so it doesn’t put color on the outside of the flower where you start your drag.

Mine actually got a bit thicker than I prefer. I really like the flowers to fall
even with the surface…but the raised look rocks also!

Some tips!

Your mix should be just emulsified with no signs of trace.

Don’t use fragrance that accelerates.

Have everything laid out, planned, lined, measured out and ready to go!

Move quickly!

Oh…and wear gloves!

I hope you enjoy and please send me pics if you do this. I’ll post them on the blog.

Happy soaping!
