Get all the ingredients you need to make this soap here.

Color Prep COLOR PREP: Disperse 1 tablespoon of Kaolin Clay, 1 tablespoon Lemon Peel Powder and ½ tablespoon of Fizzy Lemonade Colorant in 2 tablespoons of Rice Bran Oil. Use a mini mixer to get clumps worked out smoothly. Prepping your colors in the beginning will allow you to work quickly and give you more time to work with your soap.
Step 1 Remember, safety first: Check out our FREE four part SoapQueen.tv series on Cold Process Soapmaking, especially the episode on lye safety.

ONE: Slowly and carefully add the lye to the water and gently stir until the lye has fully dissolved and the liquid is clear. Set aside to cool.

TIP: If you’d like a harder bar of soap that lasts longer, you can add Sodium Lactate to the cooled lye water. Use 1 teaspoon of Sodium Lactate per pound of oils in the recipe.
Step 2
TWO:
Grate the cocoa butter before you add it to the other oils so it will melt easier and faster once you heat the mixture.

THREE: Combine the Rice Bran Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Avocado Butter and Cocoa Butter. Heat them slightly in the microwave to soften the butter then stir with a whisk until thoroughly mixed.
Step 4 FOUR: Once the lye water and the oils have cooled to 130 degrees or below (and are ideally within 10 degrees of each other), add the lye water to the oils and stick blend until thin trace.

FIVE: Add the full amount of the colorant mixture to the soap batter, and stick blend until fully incorporated.

SIX: Add fragrance to the mixture, using a whisk to fully incorporate.
Step 7
SEVEN:
Slowly pour soap batter into mold cavities. Tap the mold on the table several times to disperse bubbles and level the layer. If you’d like an extremely smooth bar, you can use a soap cutter to smooth the tops. Spray the entire top with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol to reduce soda ash. Cover and insulate for 24 hours and unmold after 3-4 days. Because this recipe contains high percentages of Castor oil for that extra lather, it will be fairly soft until it is fully cured. Allow to cure for 4-6 weeks and enjoy!
