Ingredients:

14 oz. Stephenson suspending soap base
1 oz. white melt & pour soap base
crimson sparkle soap color bar
.4 oz. fragrance oil (of choice)
blue soap colorant (of choice)
biodegradable cosmetic glitter(s)
miniature toy rubber sharks
6 cavity rectangle silicone soap mold
99% isopropyl alcohol (in a spray bottle)

Instructions:

This shark attack soap recipe yields four homemade soap bars weighing approximately 4 oz. each.

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out 1 oz. of the suspension soap base. Cut into chunks then place inside a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or glass scientific beaker. Heat in the microwave about 15-20 seconds or until melted.

Now stir in a small corner of the crimson sparkle soap color bar until it melts completely. (Alternately you can also use a liquid red soap colorant or mica to suit and add a dash of fine biodegradable cosmetic glitter in your color of choice.)

Using a sturdy book or similar item, prop your soap mold up at angle, then evenly pour the soap into two of the cavities of your soap mold. Place two of your miniature rubber sharks in each of the cavities so they are sitting side by side.

Once the soap hardens remove the soaps from the mold and cut each soap lengthwise between the sharks.

Now weigh out 5 oz. of the suspending soap base and cut into chunks. Heat in the microwave in 20-30 second increments until melted, stirring after each heating. Once melted, add a blue soap colorant and glitter of your choice to suit and stir to combine. Then weigh out .15 oz. of fragrance oil and stir into the melted soap.

Pour the soap evenly into four of your mold’s cavities.

Once the soap has hardened, weigh out 5 more oz. of the suspension soap base. Cut into chunks and heat until  melted, then add a second blue soap colorant and glitter to suit, along with .15 oz. of fragrance oil. Stir to combine then spritz the tops of the soaps in your mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol (in a spray bottle) and pour the soap you just made evenly into each of the four soap cavities (on top of the soap you poured previously.)

Allow the second layer of soap to cool slightly but not fully harden. Then weigh out 3 oz. of the suspension soap base along with 1 oz. of the white melt and pour soap base. Add a blue soap colorant to suit along with a white iridescent glitter (optional) and .1 oz. fragrance oil. (The fragrance oil I used had a yellow cast so it added some green to this layer. If your fragrance oil is clear and you want a bit of green, you can add a touch of yellow soap colorant to suit.) Stir well to combine.

Now spritz the top of the soap in the mold and pour the third layer of soap on top of the second layer. Then gently swirl the second and third layers with a chopstick or utensil.

Once you’ve achieved your desired look, carefully place one shark soap into each of the four cavities of your mold so that the shark toys are positioned at the top edge of the mold and the red soap bottom is positioned toward the middle of each cavity. (You can set the soap on the top edge of the mold where the shark is to help keep the shark soap in place.)

Allow each of your shark attack soaps to fully harden then unmold. Using a utensil of your choice, gently remove some of the soap from around each shark to reveal the red soap.

Your shark attack soap bars are now complete! Simply wrap your soaps in foodservice film to store prior to use or for gifting.

If you want to craft these fun shark attack soaps to sell, you’ll need to follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) when making your product. You’ll find that the book, Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale, is a valuable resource if you’re just getting started making your own homemade soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

In addition to GMP, you’ll also need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your products. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English by Marie Gale, spells out everything you need to know to legally label your products.

DIY Agate Slice Soaps That Anyone Can Make!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy.

Learn how to craft your own stunning DIY agate slice soaps! Agate slice coasters are HUGE right now. However I don’t really have a practical need for them. And I can only imagine my stemless wine glasses sliding right off of them halfway through the night. So I thought I’d recreate those coasters as soaps!

Learn how to create beautiful DIY agate slice soaps quickly and easily with this fun soapmaking tutorial without having to create a soap geode first!

Not only will my gold rimmed DIY agate slice soaps look lovely in your bathroom, but they also make perfect housewarming or hostess gifts. AND you can actually use them without having to worry about breaking anything! (If you’re like me you get handsy when you combine wine and good conversation.)

During my research for this soapmaking project, I found one tutorial for crafting DIY agate slice soaps. However, it required making a soap geode that you then slice. I’ve made soap geodes before. They’re lots of fun, but somewhat time consuming. They are also insanely crazy SUPER messy. (You can check out my geode soap tutorial here.)

In addition, as soap geodes are round, when you slice them you end up with agate soap slices in varying sizes. Obviously the ends are less pretty and much smaller than the slices from the center.

Learn how to create beautiful DIY agate slice soaps quickly and easily with this fun soapmaking tutorial without having to create a soap geode first!

My solution for making DIY agate slice soaps simply skipped making a round soap geode all together. Instead, I used a silicone soap mold with round cavities for consistent sizing. This also made the entire soapmaking process quicker and easier.

I hope you’ll also find my agate slice soap tutorial easy. It may seem intimidating at first, but you’ll find that if you give it a try, it’s surprising simple to make.

One of my favorite things about working with melt and pour soap is that it’s so versatile as an artistic medium. And when you start to see soap as an art medium, like paint for instance, it opens up so many new doors to be creative. This is one of those projects.

DIY Agate Slice Soaps

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

12 oz. Stephenson Crystal Natural HF Melt & Pour Soap Base
12 oz. Stephenson Suspension Melt & Pour Soap Base
.5 oz. skin safe fragrance oil
additional clear melt & pour soap, to suit
eco-friendly biodegradable glitter, to suit
mica powder, to suit
liquid soap colorant, to suit
99% isopropyl alcohol, as needed

Instructions:

In addition to the ingredients for my DIY agate slice soaps, you will also need a digital scale, a basic round silicone soap mold (my cavities were 3″ in diameter and 1″ deep) and six scientific glass beakers and/or glass Pyrex measuring cups.

Tip: You can also use this mold to make melt and pour loofah soaps! Find my melt and pour loofah soap tutorial here. You can purchase loofah that works with this mold here.

I specifically chose to work with Stephenson melt & pour soap bases for this project as they cool and harden rather quickly compared to some of the other bases. This allowed me to pour my different layers and colors of soap one after the other without having to wait for the bases to cool down in between pours.

Begin by cutting a small chunk of clear melt and pour soap into tiny soap shards for your agate slice soap centers. Set aside.

Using a digital scale, weigh out 12 oz. of the suspension melt and pour soap. Cut into chunks and combine in a 4 oz. glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave in 30 second increments until fully melted, gently stirring after each heating.

Weigh out .25 oz. of fragrance oil and mix into the melted soap base. (I used a rose quartz fragrance oil.)

Divide the melted soap into three containers as desired. (I used varying quantities in each of my containers.) Then add a bit of liquid soap colorant and/or mica and/or glitter to each container and stir to combine. (I used a combination of liquid violet soap colorant, three different shades of purple toned micas and a combination of both chunky and fine glitters of various colors. In the smallest beaker I simply used gold mica and iridescent glitter.) Mix in the colorants and glitter, then set the soap containers aside.

Now weigh out 12 oz. of the clear crystal melt and pour soap base. Cut the soap into chunks and heat until melted, the same as you did with the suspension soap base. Weigh out .25 oz. of fragrance oil and stir into the melted soap.

Now divide the soap into three separate containers and mix in varying colors of mica and/or soap colorant as desired.

Learn how to create beautiful DIY agate slice soaps quickly and easily with this fun soapmaking tutorial without having to create a soap geode first!

You can now begin filling your soap mold. You will need to work quickly as the soap base hardens rather quickly in small quantities. However, if necessary, you can go back and reheat the soap bases as needed.

Fill five of the mold cavities with a single color in various amounts. Then dust the soap shards you set aside previously with glitter. Add about one third of the soap shards to the center of the mold cavities on top of the soap you just poured.

Follow with additional soap types and colors. You can pour the soap in various places within the cavities of your mold, or you can pour the soap in a circle around the outer edge of the mold cavities each time for a more circular pattern. Continue adding the remaining soap shards as you go occasionally dusting with glitter. You can also use a chopstick or utensil to swirl or pull colors up and into one another if desired.

Once the cavities of your mold are filled, dust the tops with glitter and spritz with isopropyl alcohol. Allow the soap to harden completely then gently unmold.

Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the top of each soap off so it’s smooth. This not only smooths out the soap tops so they are level but it also allows more of that awesome mystery design you poured to show through.

Then cut each soap round in half. This will give you ten beautiful agate slice soaps.

Now place the soap slices onto parchment or wax paper so you can paint the edges.

Learn how to create beautiful DIY agate slice soaps quickly and easily with this fun soapmaking tutorial without having to create a soap geode first!

To paint the edges of your DIY agate slice soaps, combine a gold or copper colored mica with isopropyl alcohol. You want the paint fluid but not too thin. Just thin enough that it will glide easily with a brush leaving a solid color behind. Now use a small paint brush to paint the edges of your agate slice soaps.

If needed, you can apply a second coat of mica to your soaps once the first coat dries.

Allow your DIY agate slice soaps to fully dry, then wrap tightly in foodservice film for personal use or gifting!

If you want to craft these DIY agate slice soaps to sell, you’ll need to follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) when making your product. You’ll find that the book, Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale, is a valuable resource if you’re just getting started making your own homemade soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

Since having learned that making or playing with homemade slime containing borax can possibly cause chemical burns, you may be looking for another option for your kids’ crafts. Preferably one that’s borax free. My DIY pumpkin spice soap is the perfect solution for seasonal fun for both kids and grown ups alike!

I first tried out a version of this moldable soap recipe on a girls’ night and we had a blast! And because you can make these DIY pumpkin spice soaps as simple or as detailed as you like, they are suitable for elementary school kids and up. (However, you may want to prepare the moldable soap base prior to handling for younger children rather than involve them in the full soapmaking process.)

Ingredients:

4 oz. Stephenson Crystal Hemp Melt & Pour Soap Base
1.1 oz. liquid vegetable glycerin
.25 oz. cornstarch
.1 oz pumpkin pie spice fragrance oil
orange color bar or liquid orange soap colorant, optional
skin safe cosmetic mica powders in colors of choice
isopropyl alcohol

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out 4 oz. of the hemp melt & pour soap base and cut into chunks. Place the soap chunks in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or bowl, then heat in the microwave in 20-30 increments until melted. Add color to suit, if desired, and mix well.

Next, weigh out the cornstarch and glycerin and stir into the melted soap base. Follow with the fragrance oil, weighing out the necessary amount first.

Whisk the soap base with a fork until all of the cornstarch has dissolved and the soap starts to thicken. Once the soap has cooled and can be molded without sticking to your hands, it’s ready to use!

Working on a covered surface or parchment paper, shape the soap into a pumpkin with your hands the same way you would clay. You can use a butter knife to help add details around the pumpkin. Once you have a pumpkin shape you like, you can paint your pumpkin!

Simply mix a small amount of mica with isopropyl alcohol in a dish to desired consistency to create your soap paints. I used green, gold and copper micas to paint my DIY pumpkin spice soap.

I mixed the copper mica with alcohol first at a thinner consistency to push the paint into the grooves I made around the pumpkin.

Once I had mixed the color I simply used a small paint brush to paint the lines around my pumpkin shaped soap.

I then used a gold mica and alcohol to fill in the areas between those I painted copper. Finally, I mixed up green mica and isopropyl alcohol and used that color to paint the stem.

Once used, the mica will wash off, leaving behind an orange shaped pumpkin soap that smells like pumpkin spice!

Homemade Fall Soaps for the Perfect Morning Pick Me Up!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy.

Let’s face it. Mondays suck. The solution? That one’s tough. But a little morning pick-me-up can go a long way towards perking up your mood. While these homemade fall soaps aren’t going to magically make your workload a breeze, they will bring a smile to your face. Plus they’re a great little reminder that sometimes it’s the little things that can turn it all around.

Homemade Fall Soaps for the Perfect Morning Pick Me Up!

While my Mondays aren’t as insane as they used to be when I worked for someone else, they can still just as challenging. Don’t get me wrong. Self-employment has its merits and its perks. However, I still have weekly goals, challenges and deadlines that I have to meet to keep advertisers. Otherwise, I don’t make the money I need to live off of. And just like you, when you’re sick but don’t have paid sick days, I’m typing away at the computer planning social media or struggling through processing photos for my next DIY.

In fact, last week I had a fibro flare up. This was followed by a return of TMJ. Both of these things are aggravated by stress but also in turn cause more stress. So I had to find something to help break the cycle. In the end, it’s you all – and some of my long time fans – that reminded me that it’s all worth it. And that, no, I’m not just writing for myself but also people that I relate to and that relate to me. Browsing all of the new homemade falls soaps out now on Etsy – that brought it all back home.

The best homemade soaps for fall! These lovely artisan soaps are inspired by the colors and scents of fall and are the perfect Monday morning pick me up to start off your week!

As a former seller on Etsy myself (and no stranger to farmer’s markets either!) I wanted to share some of my favorite fall soaps that I discovered. These amazing soaps are not only inspiring, but the artisans who crafted these homemade fall soaps are also small businesses owners. Perhaps like yourself. So I hope you’ll take the time to check out the creative soapmaking ideas they developed to celebrate the season as well as support those artists and soapmakers you love in their endeavor by making a purchase.

Pumpkin Spice Pie Soap Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

5.4 oz. clear detergent free melt and pour soap base (or similar)
13.35 oz. white detergent free melt and pour soap base (or similar)
3.25 oz. basic white melt and pour soap base (or similar)
.45 oz. sal butter
.05 oz. coffee, ground
.45 oz. brown sugar
.25 oz. pink Himalayan salt, fine ground
.25 oz. cardamom mocha fragrance oil (or similar)
.55 oz. pumpkin spice fragrance oil, of choice
25 drops stained glass sunflower orange liquid soap color (or similar)

Instructions:

You will need a Cake Slice Silicone Soap Mold and a digital scale. I specifically used the Crafter’s Choice™ Cake Slice Silicone Soap Mold for my pumpkin spice pie soap recipe however, you can find the similar (though lesser quality) silicone 8-cavity cake molds for about half the price with free prime shipping on Amazon here. In addition, a spray bottle filled with rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol is helpful, though not absolutely necessary. This pumpkin spice pie soap recipe will yield three pie slice soaps.

You’ll begin by making the pie crust.

Weigh out 5.4 oz. of clear detergent free melt and pour soap base. Cut into chunks and combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat again if needed, in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings until the base has melted.

Next, weigh out the coffee, brown sugar and the pink Himalayan salt. Stir into the melted clear soap base.

Now weigh out the cardamom mocha fragrance oil. I specifically used this fragrance oil, however, you can use a chocolate fragrance oil as well. Alternately, you can scent the entire soap with a pumpkin spice fragrance oil. The cardamom true sugar fragrance oil is pretty awesome too.

Now pour the soap equally into three of the mold cavities. Spritz with rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol then allow to cool and harden. (You can place your mold with the melted soap in the refrigerator to speed up the process. I find that the detergent free soap bases take a lot longer to fully harden than the ones with detergent.)

Once the soap has hardened, you’re ready for the next step.

Next you’ll make the pie filling.

To make the pie filling for the pumpkin spice pie soap recipe, you’ll begin by weighing out 13.35 oz. of your white detergent free melt and pour soap base. Cut the soap into chunks and combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat again as needed, in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings until the base has melted.

Add 25 drops of the orange liquid soap color. If you’d like a deeper orange for your soap, simply add more color. (Alternately you can also use a chunk from an orange color bar. In this case start with part of one square, stirring until it melts fully, then add additional color as needed.)

Now weigh out the pumpkin spice fragrance oil you’ve chosen to use and stir into the melted white soap base. (If your pumpkin spice fragrance oil has vanilla in it, it will cause the soap to turn brown, giving your soap a brownish-orange hue. However, if you want to keep the look of the orange pie “filling” as pictured, be sure to use a vanilla stabilizer for melt and pour soap to prevent the soap from turning brown.)

If you don’t want to use the pumpkin spice fragrance oil, you can easily substitute another “pie like” fragrance oil of your choice. Alternately you can also use .15 oz. of blood orange essential oil which blends perfectly with the chocolate “graham cracker crust.”

Spritz the tops of the “pie crust” in your mold with alcohol, then pour the “pie filling” on top of the pie crust into each of the three cavities of your silicone mold. Spritz the tops of your freshly poured soap with alcohol to remove any air bubbles then allow to cool and harden fully.

 Once your pumpkin spice pie soaps have set up, you’re ready to add the icing drizzle!

Make your icing drizzle!

I specifically used the Crafter’s Choice basic white melt and pour soap base for the icing, not the detergent free. This is because this base sets up more quickly than the detergent free bases so it’s easy to work with for this application. You can, however, try it with the detergent free base if you like but I can’t vouch for how it will perform.

This is where it gets fun!

Weigh out .45 oz. sal butter. Place into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat the sal butter in the microwave at 50% power until almost melted.

Now weigh out 3.25 oz. of the basic white melt and pour soap base. Cut into chunks and combine with the sal butter in the glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat again if needed, in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings until the base and sal butter have melted completely.

If you’d like to add some fun to your icing, you can add some flashing pearl, shimmer pearl or silvery white pearl mica to the mixture.

I didn’t scent my icing, but if you’d like to scent yours you can add up to .15 oz. of a fragrance oil of your choice.

Allow the “icing” mixture to cool slightly. You want to be able to pour it, but you don’t want it to just run right off the tops of your pie soaps. Don’t worry if you pour it too hot the first time. You’ll have extra “icing” to correct any mistakes. If it’s too hot on the first try, simply allow the base to cool a little longer, then pour it back over the tops of your pie soaps.

Remove your pie soaps from the silicone mold.
