Homemade Soap Recipe

'Champagne & Roses'

A decidedly feminine homemade soap recipe, Champagne and Roses is sure to delight those partial to fruity floral soaps.

Both fragrance oils used in this blend were purchased from New Directions Aromatics should you wish to duplicate it exactly.

If you would prefer to use only essential oils, try using lavender and sweet orange instead.

You can easily make this recipe Palm Free, by simply switching out the palm oil for lard, tallow, shea butter, cocoa butter or mango butter and re-running the recipe through a lye calculator to get the correct amount of sodium hydroxide (lye) needed.

Homemade Soap Recipe Instructions

Before making this soap, be sure to read all the directions below and follow the links for further information you will need.

Follow the directions for creating soap curls if you are going to include them in your design. 

You can make the base for this recipe following the instructions for either cold process soap making or room temperature soap making and incorporate the following steps.  

  • Do not add the coconut milk to the lye water. Hold on to it until the soap reaches a thin trace and then add the slightly warmed milk to the soap base. If you want a higher content of milk in the soap, fortify the milk with powdered coconut milk before adding to the soap base.
  • Mix in the micas using the stick blender and then add the scent blend.
  • Once the soap base has reached a medium trace (resembles flowing pudding, but not gloppy), pour it over the soap curls in your soap mould.
  • Don't forget that the soap will fill the mould more than normal due to the extra soap.
  • Gently tap the soap mould on the counter to get out any air bubbles.
  • Finish up as per the soap making instructions for the method you are using.
