Autumn Breeze Cold Process Soap Tutorial

Here's a great idea for a fall themed soap that you can make from soap scraps.



I had some red, orange & green soap that didn't turn out as planned and I was saving them for something- it turned out to be Autumn Breeze Soap! I used my cutter to cube the soap into small chunks- between 1/4 & 1/2 inch pieces. You don't have to be exact.


 I was using a new fragrance oil so I didn't know how it would react, so I decided to use a whisk to mix up my soap batter. This ended up being a good thing because once I added the fragrance, it did thicken somewhat quickly. 


Once the soap got to a heavier pudding like texture, I began to add the soap chunks. See how the soap cubes are staying on top of the new soap? This is the perfect thickness to be able to mix in the soap cubes and keep them evenly distributed throughout the soap.


Next up- plating (or molding in the case of soap!). I poured the soap into molds and added an interesting texture.


I saved a few of the soap chunks so I could sprinkle them on top of my freshly poured soap. I also added some skin safe glitter for a little extra sparkle. Even soap is allowed to show off every once in awhile! ;)




Voila! Autumn Breeze Soap!


Happy day,
Jill
