I had some soapy friends in the soap kitchen this weekend and it was all about the hot process soap! About a month ago, Moya came over to soap with me. She brought me a couple bars of soap which included a beautiful hot processed soap! Since I didn’t really have a hot process soap tutorial on the blog I asked her if she’d be willing to give us some tips and show us how she does it! She agreed and we made three batches of hot process soap! Another local soaper (and candle maker) came to help out also! (Below is Minnie, Me and Moya.)
Stay tuned because we’re going to show you how to make three different hot processed soaps! We’ll share with you the three recipes we used along with some tips and tricks to make hot process soaping a breeze!
About the soapers…
Moya is a soaper that lives in Dallas, TX. She is a past student of mine from my GL Candle days. The Fair is going on now in Dallas and Moya is all about the fair food! If you need any recommendations or want her to draw you out a recommended food route…she’ll do it! You can find Moya over at her blog, m. alan.
Minnie is another Dallas soap maker and candle maker. She was my first ever student! She left me with a beautiful candle after our soapy session! You can find Minnie and more of her candles on her blog, Cama Scents.
So stay tuned! Much more to come!
Thanks for being a part of the Lovin’ Soap community! We’re so glad you’re here!
Now through March 1st, we are having a presale on our newest eClass, Clear Transparent Soap from Scratch!
In this video eCourse, I will show you:
- How to formulate your own transparent soap recipe that is remelt-able and reusable…similar to MP soap base.
- We’ll go over base oils and solvents that are available to use and why you would select each type of ingredient.
- How to make quick hot process transparent soap from scratch. It only takes about 20 minutes once you get the process down!
- How to remelt and use your base for future projects.
About the soap:
- The ingredients we use include coconut oil, stearic acid, castor oil, sodium hydroxide, everclear (grain alcohol) and sugar.
- The soap is remeltable and you can work with it like melt and pour soap base.
- You can create bars of soap or embeds that you can add to regular cold process soap.
- You’ll get different varieties of clarity in your soap…we’ll talk about that.
The class will be delivered in a a series of videos and downloadable PDF’s. You’ll have forever access and be able to watch over and over again as you want.
Happy Soaping! -Amanda Aaron
