Recipe : Rose Quartz
Cold Process With Melt & Pour Embeds
This recipe makes 3 lbs of soap and 8 oz or melt & pour. This will result in 11 bars at 6 oz. per bar. This recipe is made to create a rose quartz color marbled design with cracks, fissures, and striations to replicate a geological effect.
12 oz. Palm Shortening
14.4 oz. Rice Bran
12 oz. Sunflower Oil
7.2 oz. Coconut Oil
2.4 oz. Shea Butter
6.85 oz. of NaOH
18.24 oz. distilled water
1.5 oz. of Fragrance Oil (In this recipe ¾ oz. Victorian Rose & ¾ oz. Clean Type)
1 tsp. Amaranth Pink
1 tsp. Raspberry Red
2 tbsp. Titanium Dioxide
8 oz. clear base melt & pour
Cover yourself in your safety protection. Glasses, gloves, and mask.
Carefully pour the lye crystals into water, and stir until the crystals are completely dissolved. Set this aside to cool to room temperature.
Combine the oils in a separate bowl and set this aside.
Prepare the melt and pour embeds.
Style 1: Melt 2 oz. of clear soap and add 1.8 tsp. of Amarynth pink mica. Melt 2 oz. of clear soap and add 1/8 red raspberry mica. Allow this to set up and chop into small ¼ centimeter pieces.
Style 2: Melt 2 oz. of clear melt & pour and add 1/8 tsp. of titanium dioxide. Pour this flat over a piece of plastic wrap on a dish. Separate 1/3 of the chopped crumbled pieces from the first part. Place these in a row down the length of the white soap. Wrap the white soap over the pink crumbled pieces like a long snake shape. Allow this to set up. Unwrap and slice into flat pieces.
Style 3: Melt 4 oz of clear base. Pour 2 oz into a container. Color 2 oz. with 1/8 tsp. of amarynth pink. Pour the pink soap unevenly into the clear soap. Allow this to firm up and cut into 2 inch geometric crystal shape pieces.
Combine the oils and lye water solution and mix until completely emulsified. Add both fragrance oils and blend well. Separate the soap batter into 3 parts with one part larger than the other two.
Color one part with 1 tbsp. Of Titanium Dioxide. This may lead to glycerin rivers in the design. Use less if you want to avoid glycerin rivers, but you may like the accent in a geological design. Color the 2nd part with ½ tsp. of amarynth pink, and the 3rd part with 1/8 tsp. Raspberry Red mica.
Layer the soap in alternating colors. There are many texture designs you can reate. For a swirl design use an in the pot swirl with 2 colors before pouring. For texture and veins, lay a layer of white on one side of the mold. Place the pink crumbles pieces in a line where the two color meet. To make a color vein, sprinkle a mica line over the top of one color. Use a paint brush to blend and push the line around to create a vein look. Cover the mica line in a solid layer of white soap. Continue layering the soap in alternating colors adding embeds into the bar and mica lines to create fissures.
Cover the top in melt & pour embeds and pink Himalayan sea salt. Cut after 24 hours, and allow this to cure for 4 – 6 weeks.
