I love whipped soap. Have you tried it? It is the best product ever. I’m not even kidding. It is luxurious and foaming and moisturizing. It is my favorite bath product. You can buy it on Etsy. You can also make it yourself and it is as easy as making a cake without all the baking.
You will need the whipped soap base. You will need shea butter, coconut butter, sweet almond oil, fragrance oil, Lab color of your choice and you can also pick up jojoba beads to pretty it up if you want.
You will also need to purchase containers. I usually go with the 4 ounce ones.
I buy my products at New Directions
You will need a mixer and a large container to mix everything in. I bought a set of measuring spoons just for my crafting and they will certainly come in handy when you are making soap and candles.
I use about 20 ounces of whipped soap base. I give it a quick go with the mixer. Next I start to add the extra ingredients. 3 tablespoons of shea butter, 1 tablespoon of coconut butter, 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil are added and mixed well. You will need to add your fragrance oil next. I use 3-4 squirts. The color is next. It depends on how light or dark you want it. If you want a lighter color, use one squirt, if you want it darker, you might need 3-5 squirts. You can mix colors and scents as well. I always do.
Once all the ingredients are mixed together you can start to fill your jars. A kitchen scale will come in handy. The jars hold 4 ounces but filling it to the top is a waste and more than 4 ounces. I didn’t realize this when I filled my first lot of containers and you can see in the photograph. When it was all said and done, the jars held 5.2 ounces. Doh!
To use this product you will need a mesh sponge and running water. Jump in the shower or bath and get your sponge wet. Rub it into the top of the container and start scrubbing your body. The bubbles, the scent, the moisturizing – It’s yum in the tub for your skin!!!
