Happy Easter! We hope you all have a wonderful holiday with your family and friends! We’d love to hear and see what fun Easter projects everyone has going on. We decided on a cold process soap project. Now available to see and purchase at our store!
Reminder: Otion will be closed April 20th & 21st for Easter! We will be open for regular business hours on Tuesday the 22nd.
What You’ll Need:
6.8 oz Sweet Almond Oil
4.1 oz Avocado Oil
4.9 oz Castor Oil
15.6 oz Coconut Oil
2.7 Hemp Seed Oil (Refined)
10.2 oz Palm Oil
13.8 oz Rice Bran Oil
8.13 oz Sodium Hydroxide (Superfatted at a 6%)
20 oz Distilled Water
2.1 oz Grass Stain Fragrance Oil
0.3 oz Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil
1.1 oz Lime Fragrance Oil
Neon Blue Raspberry
Hydrated Chrome Green
5 lb Wood Loaf Mold
5 lb Silicone Liner
1. Our first step was to make our lye solution so it had time to cool down. We measured out 20 oz Distilled Water and 8.13 oz Sodium Hydroxide and set to the side to cool down.
**Always remember to make sure you label your lye solution so nobody gets into it!**
2. Next, we measured out our Fragrance Oils and our colorants. We premixed our colors with Avocado Oil.
3. While our lye solution was cooling, we measured out our oils in a large Pyrex bowl. Our oils were a little cool, so we stuck them in the microwave on 20 second bursts. Once our lye solution and our oils were around 100 degrees Fahrenheit (10-15 degrees of each other), we combined them together.
4. Once we came to a light trace, we measured out 8 oz of our soap into 5 different squeeze bottles. Then we mixed our premixed Fizzy Lemonade in our batch of soap. With our squeeze bottles, we poured each of our colors in and shook it up until completely mixed. When all our colors were mixed thoroughly in our squeeze bottles, we did an in the pot swirl. We alternated squeezing each color back into the Pyrex. You will have soap left over in your squeeze bottles, just set it aside as you will use it later!
