1. Buy supplies. Craft stores sell glycerin, which is a soap base, in solid, meltable blocks. If you're feeling ambitious, you can make your own glycerin, but it's easier to buy blocks of clear glycerin, white glycerin, or a different color. Clear glycerin soap always looks a little transparent, no matter what color you choose. In addition to glycerin, you'll need the following supplies: Essential oils. Craft stores sell essential oils meant for use in glycerin soap. You'll only need a few drops to scent an entire batch of soap, so you can buy a small bottle. Choose lemon verbena oil, rose oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil, or another oil you'd like to use to scent your soap. Soap molds. Craft stores sell many different types of molds, ranging from very small to very large in size. Be sure to get a type of mold that is usable for glycerin soap, which will pop right out of the mold as soon as it has set. Rubbing alcohol. If you don't already have some in your medicine cabinet, pick up a bo
2. Melt the glycerin in a double boiler. Cut off as much glycerin as you need to fill the soap molds you bought, then slice it into small pieces that will be easier to melt. Place the glycerin pieces in a double boiler, fill the boiler with water, and place it over medium heat. Continue heating the glycerin until it is completely melted. If you don't have a double boiler, you can make one. Find two pots, a large one and a smaller one that fits inside. Fill the larger pot with a few inches of water. Set the smaller pot inside the larger pot so that it floats on the water. Place the pots on a burner over medium heat. Put the glycerin chunks into the dry, smaller pot and allow them to melt. You can also melt the glycerin in the microwave. Place the chunks in a microwave safe bowl and heat them in 30 second increments until they are entirely melted. You can melt the entire block of glycerin or just cut off a little at a time until you've melted an amount that seems suitable for your soap-maki
3. Stir in the essential oil. Add just a few drops of the oil; since it's so concentrated, a little goes a long way. Use a wooden spoon to stir the drops in until they are thoroughly combined with the glycerin, then remove it from heat.
4. Prepare the soap molds. Set the molds on a flat surface lined with paper towels. Use the spray bottle full of rubbing alcohol to lightly mist the insides of the soap molds, coating the area where the glycerin will go. The alcohol prevents bubbles from forming in the soap as it cools and dries. If you don't use alcohol, your finished soap may have a layer of bubbles.

2. * Mix the clay and water up before you begin making soap. Add it to the melted oils by pouring through a sieve/strainer. Cosmetic clays come in a range of colors including blue, green, pink, and brown. Here are various natural soap making colorants to give you inspiration.
3. ** You may use a maximum of 3 tsp of essential oil total in your soap choosing from these scents: chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), neroli, palmarosa (Cymbopogon martini), rose geranium (Pelargonium graveolens), or ylang ylang (Cananga odorata).
4. *** Dried flowers are a pretty way to decorate handmade soap but unfortunately they can turn brown on contact. Calendula petals will stay yellow but for others there are two options. You can lightly sprinkle them on once the soap has firmed up slightly. The parts that don't come into contact with the soap will stay colored, at least for a while. The other option is to wait until your soap is fully cured. After the 28 day waiting period, spray your the areas you want flowers on your soap with witch hazel or denatured alcohol. Sprinkle the dried flowers on top and wait for the alcohol to dry. When it's fully dry, the flowers will be adhered to the soap. Neat huh?Decorate your soap with rose petals, lavender buds, calendula petals, dried chamomile, and other skin-safe dried flowers and leaves.

Hot Process Glycerin Liquid Soap Recipe Elements Bath

To make this more manageable, this recipe swaps the water used in a typical lye solution for glycerin which results in a soap batter that comes rapidly to trace. As a side benefit, glycerin

1. Combine the coconut oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, and the olive oil in the slow cooker. Turn the oil on high, cover and allow the oils to melt, about 15 minutes, depending on how hot your cooker is. While your oils melt, make your lye solution. Combine the potassium hydroxide and the glycerin in a 2-3 qt. stainless steel saucepan. Bring the lye mixture to a simmer on low/medium heat. DO NOT WALK AWAY WHILE HEATING THE LYE SOLUTION. The glycerin will foam and may even crackle a little. Do not be alarmed! Keep stirring the lye solution constantly until the lye dissolves, 5-8 minutes. If you see any remaining undissolved chips of lye, turn the heat back on and stir some more.
2. Pour the lye solution into the oils. Stick blend on high until all of the oil has been emulsified, about one minute. Don’t worry about over stick blending. The batter will be at a thin trace. Cover and cook the soap on high for about 20 minutes. Stir the soap with a spatula. You will notice it start to thicken up a bit. Cook the soap another 20-40 more minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, or so. The soap is done when it forms a clear, amber-colored liquid covered in a layer of foam. When you remove a bit of the soap on a spoon, it will harden into a soft, transparent paste. The easiest way to check for doneness is to take a tiny bit of the soap on a spoon and touch it to your tongue. If it “zaps” like touching your tongue to a battery, cook the soap another 10-20 minutes. Alternatively, you can use phenolphthalein drops or make a 1% solution of soap paste in distilled water and check the pH with a pH meter. The pH will be at or below pH 10. One final way to check for doneness of the soa
3. Bring 3 quarts of water just to a boil in a large stock pot. VERY SLOWLY pour boiled water into the slow cooker to within a half inch of the top. (If you pour too quickly, you will have a soapy volcano on your hands!) The soap will seize up into large blobs of soap paste. Don’t even bother stirring it at this point - it’s too sticky! Cover the cooker with plastic wrap and cover with the lid and reduce the heat to low. The plastic wrap is optional, but prevents evaporation, so you don’t need to keep adding distilled water. Allow the soap to cook undisturbed for 2-3 hours. Peel back the plastic wrap and stir the soap with a spatula. Scrape the bottom of the cooker and break up some of the lumps. Replace the plastic wrap and replace the lid. Cook on low one more hour and stir once again. At this point, it’s easiest to just cover the soap, turn off the crock pot and leave it overnight. The next day, stir it thoroughly. If there are any remaining lumps of soap paste, add a little more water
4. While the soap is diluting make a 20% saline solution. Combine 14.11 oz. (400 mL) of distilled water and 3.5 oz. (100g) of table salt in a microwaveable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute or until dissolved. Set aside. It’s easiest to fragrance and scent only a liter at a time of your liquid soap until you know how it will behave. You don’t want to risk your entire batch! Weigh 980g (34.6 oz.) of soap in a 4 qt. measuring cup or pitcher and add 20g (0.71 oz.) (2%) of your favorite essential oil or fragrance oil to the soap. Stir well with the spatula. Use the saline to thicken the soap. Keep the soap on the scale and zero it out. Add 30g of the saline and stir well. Check for thickening. Add more saline 2-4 g at a time, stirring with every addition. At some point, you will notice the soap thicken a bit to the consistency of warm honey. For reference, check it against unfragranced soap. Stop adding salt to the soap when it gets thick. T

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make glycerin soap?

How to make glycerin soap: Cut enough of the glycerin soap base to fill your molds. Chop the soap base into small pieces to facilitate even melting. Fill the pot about halfway full with water. On the stove, bring the water to a low simmer. Place your chopped soap bits into the measuring cup; place the cup in the simmering water.

Can you use vegetable glycerin to make soap?

Glycerin, or glycerol, is a colorless and odorless syrup that tastes sweet and is a byproduct of saponification – the process of making soap – of natural fats, such as vegetable oil. You can make glycerin yourself using heat and some lye, which can then be used to make things like soap or skin moisturizer.

Is glycerin the same as soap?

The fats already contain glycerin as part of their chemical makeup (both animal and vegetable fats contain from 7% – 13% glycerine). When the fats and lye interact, soap is formed, and the glycerin is left out as a “byproduct”. But, while it’s chemically separate, it’s still blended into the soap mix.

What makes a good bar soap?

When it comes to making a good bar of soap there are five qualities that most soap makers formulate their soap recipe for: Bubbly, Cleansing, Hardness, Conditioning and Creamy. Bubbly – this gives the soaps ability to lather. Cleansing – the ability of the soap to trap the dirt on the skin and wash it away. Hardness – the firmness of the soap bar.
