I work with smallish quantities at a time (about 200g) so the Bubble-Doh always stays fresh. You can use plastic gloves because working long with very this very soapy mixture will dry your hands. Mix your fragrance into your Bubble-Doh as much or as little as you like. I think your Bubble-Doh should always smell heavenly and the more fragrance the better! Knead the Bubble-Doh well till the fragrance is mixed through. Lightly dust your mould with bicarbonate of soda to help the Bubble-Doh release easily. Fill half your egg mould with Bubble-Doh and then gently knock the egg shape out of the mould into your hand. Place the half egg on a thick wad of old newspaper covered in paper towelling. Now, make the second half of the egg in the same way. When the second half is ready you can brush the first half very lightly with some water to help stick the second half on top. Smooth the edges of the seam with your fingers so that the join line disappears. I like to put the entire egg back into the mould now just to reshape it. It will release easily. Then you can brush the top of the egg (again, very lightly) with water to sprinkle the glitter. Leave the eggs to set for 24 hours. (See recipe 17 in Soap Barn Book 2 – www.soapbarn.co.za for step-by-step picture instructions) Crumble a Bubble-Doh egg under your hot running water for a wonderful bubble bath.

Cut it in half and cut off the rounded corners so you have two small petit four shapes from each rectangle that you mould.
After about 3 days your Bubble-Doh petit fours are ready to be decorated. I dipped the top and sides of mine in melted white glycerine soap so they would have a smooth, shiny finish.

Use this wonderful coffee bean soap to massage and dissolve cellulite.

Exfoliating Coffee Soaps - Recipe 54

Requirements:
250g Clear glycerine soap (Soap Barn)
Coffee fragrance (Soap Barn)
2 Tablespoons ground coffee
Square or rectangle mould (Soap Barn)

Method:
Chop your soap into chunks and place it in a plastic jug. Gently melt your soap in the microwave. Once the soap has melted add 40 drops of coffee fragrance and two tablespoons of ground coffee. Now, in order for the coffee to be evenly distributed throughout the soap you need to stir the soap till it is cool. When you see the soap starting to thicken pour it quickly into the mould. Timing is essential. If you pour too early all the coffee will sink to the bottom of the mould and you will only have coffee on one side of the soap. These soaps take a bit more effort than your usual soap but they are well worth it!

Ice Lantern Candle - Recipe 55

Requirements:
White powder candle wax (Soap Barn)
Candle dyes (Soap Barn) or Wax crayons (for other colours)
Candle mould (Soap Barn)
Tin foil
Wick (Soap Barn)
Sustainers (Soap Barn)

Method:
Melt your wax gently in a pot on the stove. You will need a PVC pipe cylinder that is sealed at the bottom with tin foil. Start by cutting your wick to size (and a bit). Dip your wick into the melted wax and hold it up so it can set straight. Fasten your sustainer to the bottom of your waxed wick. Position the wick in the middle of the cylinder using a tiny bit of prestik under the sustainer. Tie the top of the wick onto a kebab stick that balances on the top of the cylinder. (If you ultimately wish to have a bigger flame you can cut three pieces of wick and plait them. Then dip them in the wax and position them just as you would do with one strand.) Place ice-cubes all around the inside edge of the cylinder, keeping them away from the wick. Pour your melted wax into the sealed ice-packed cylinder all the way to the top. Leave to set. I find it is best to leave this candle on a large plate or even in the basin while it sets. The ice melts quite quickly and soon runs out, so it is best that your candle is left to set in a place that will handle the melting ice. After about two hours you can remove the tin foil off the bottom of the cylinder and un-mould your candle. I like to break through some of the thinner parts to reveal bigger holes. You can even use a hair dryer to open up some of the holes. The more holes you have the nicer your candle will be. As the candle burns down the light shines through the holes and you have a wonderful lantern effect. When your wick has burned right down to the bottom you can replace it with a tea-light candle at the bottom to keep your lantern going.

Spice 'n All Things Nice Candle - Recipe 56

Requirements:
Gel wax (Soap Barn)
Powder wax (Soap Barn)
Glass vase
Wick (Soap Barn)
Sustainers (Soap Barn)
Orange peel confetti (Soap Barn)
Dried orange slices (Chocolate Den)
Kebab sticks (Chocolate Den)
Coffee beans
Cinnamon sticks

Method:
Start by cutting your wick to size (and a bit). Melt the gel wax in a pot directly on the stove over a very low heat. When the gel is melted it will run like water. Dip your wick into the melted gel and hold it up so it can set straight. Fasten your sustainer to the bottom of your waxed wick. Position the wick in the middle of the vase using a tiny bit of prestik under the sustainer. Tie the top of the wick onto a kebab stick that balances on the top of the vase. (If you ultimately wish to have a bigger flame you can cut three pieces of wick and plait them. Then dip them in the wax and position them just as you would do with one strand.) Then pour your melted gel into the glass1/5 of the way up. Leave to cool. Position your orange slices around the edges (or which ever of your natural props you choose to have at the bottom of your candle). Leave that layer to set and then pour your next layer and repeat the method till you have almost filled your vase to the top with different layers. Then melt your powder wax gently in a pot on the stove. When melted pour in your melted wax over the gel wax right to the top. Leave your candle to set. Once it has set you will notice that it has set with a hole in the middle. This is usual when working with white wax because it shrinks when it sets. Now melt your left over wax and top up the candle where it has shrunk. Leave the candle now to cool and set completely. Your candle will burn for months! Each layer will yield a different fragrance depending on the natural props you have used.

Balloon Lantern Candle - Recipe 57

Requirements:
White powder candle wax (Soap Barn)
Balloons
Candle dyes (Soap Barn) or Wax crayons (for other colours)
Tea-lights or small candles that you have made yourself (see floating candle recipe)

Method:
Melt your wax gently in a pot on the stove. You will need a medium sized pot that is filled about 2/3 to the top with melted wax. Colour your wax with candle dye or wax crayons. Stir well so the colour is completely mixed through. Fill a balloon with cold water from the tap and tie a knot at the top. Holding on to the knot dip your balloon into the pot of melted wax. Once dipped, place your balloon on the counter next to you (still holding it by the knot) so that it forms a flat bottom. Now repeat that process about eight to ten times. Take your balloon lantern candle over to the basin and pierce a hole in the top of the balloon. If you wish to use the balloon again you will have to try untie the knot. Let the water escape the balloon and as that happens the balloon with shrink and move away from the sides of your candle. Place a small candle or tea-light candle in the middle of your lantern. You will get the most beautiful, ambient light shining through the wax. This candle is a win for romantic candle lit dinners or for relaxing in a hot bubble bath.

Position the wick in the middle of the vase using a tiny bit of prestik under the sustainer. Tie the top of the wick onto a kebab stick that balances on the top of the vase. (If you ultimately wish to have a bigger flame you can cut three pieces of wick and plait them. Then dip them in the wax and position them just as you would do with one strand.)

Drop an assortment of your candies into the gel and leave them to suspend and set in the gel. Leave that layer to set and then pour your next layer and repeat the method till you have filled your vase to the top with different layers. You have to make this candle in stages because you need your sweets to be suspended throughout the candle and if you just fill your vase with gel and drop in the sweets all your sweets will just sink to the bottom.

Waterlily Floating Candle - Recipe 63

Requirements:
White powder candle wax (Soap Barn)
Pre-waxed wicks (Soap Barn)
Round cookie cutter (Chocolate Den)
Baking tray (Chocolate Den)
Kebab sticks (Chocolate Den)
Tin foil
Candle dyes (Soap Barn) or Wax crayons (for other colours)

Method:
Melt your wax gently in a pot on the stove. When melted pour your wax into a baking tray that you have covered in foil. Leave to cool and set partially. When your wax is almost set (still warm and not yet hard) take your cookie cutter and cut shapes out of all the wax on the tray. Take a kebab stick and make a hole through each circle you have cut. Leave your wax to cool completely and set. Once set separate out all your circles. Now thread your pre-waxed wicks (with sustainers attached) through each cut out shape. Your candles are now ready to be dipped. Fill a small pot or tin with melted wax. Hold your candle by the wick and dip it in the wax – dip it as many times as you like but not less than seven or eight times. When you have finished dipping your candles they are ready to be made into waterlilies. Have a jug of cold water next to you. Take a dessert spoon and dip it twice into your melted wax. Then scrape away the wax on the edges so that the wax in the front of the spoon is not attached to the wax at the back of the spoon. Then place your spoon in the jug of cold water. Repeat this process with more spoons. The wax will lift off the spoons in the cold water jug and you will have all the petals you require to make your waterlily. Scoop some melted wax into the bottom of your petal and quickly place it on the dipped circle you made earlier. Start close to the wick and do the inner circle of petals first. Then stick more petals around first petals so that your waterlily grows bigger. Continue till you have no more space left on your dipped circle. These unique and gorgeous candles are really beautiful for very special parties for very special guests. Light them just as the guests sit down to dinner. The waterlilies will melt quite fast but the rest of the candle will burn throughout your meal. Float your candles in a bowl of water with flowers (for a dinner party) or in your bath (for romance) or in your swimming pool when you have your friends over for a braai!

Orange Hand and Body Scrub - Recipe 69

Requirements:
100ml Shea Butter (Soap Barn)
100ml Sweet Almond Oil (Soap Barn)
Fine Salt (Soap Barn)
Orange peel scrub (Soap Barn)
Orange fragrance (Soap Barn)
Dried marigold (Soap Barn)
Wooden spoon (Soap Barn)
RBS box round natural (Soap Barn)
Candle wax (Soap Barn)

Method:
As the RBS boxes are porous you will need to seal the inside if you are filling them with anything water based. Although this recipe is not water based I still feel it would be better to seal the inside of your box as it is quite oily. Melt a little candle wax gently on the stove in a small tin. Brush the inside of the RBS box round natural with the melted wax to seal it completely.
Gently melt the shea butter in the microwave for 1 minute. Pour the melted shea butter into a glass bowl and add 100ml sweet almond oil, orange fragrance, orange peel scrub and dried marigold. Then add your fine salt, stirring and mixing the scrub thoroughly until you get a thick paste. The paste must not be runny. Fill your RBS box round natural with the scrub.
Applying the scrub:
In the shower put a scoop full of scrub into the palm of your hand. With a washing motion rub the scrub all over your body. Massage the treatment into the skin till it tingles. Then wash off the scrub with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel. The rich oils nourish and feed your skin while the salt cleanses, exfoliates and relaxes the muscles. After this scrub your body feels renewed and revitalised and stays that way throughout the day. You can use this on your hands as well for the softest, smoothest hands ever!

Method:

Lemongrass Shaving Soap - Recipe 71

Requirements:
250g cocoa butter glycerine soap (Soap Barn)
Lemon ragrance (Soap Barn)
1 teaspoon bentonite (Soap Barn)
RBS box round natural (Soap Barn)
Shaving brush Soap Barn)
Candle wax (Soap Barn)

Method:

Stir well till the bentonite and fragrance are mixed into the soap. Now leave the soap a while to cool. I have found that the bentonite helps retain heat and that means you need to wait longer for the soap to cool before you pour it. Then you can pour the soap into the RBS box round natural and leave it to set. This shaving soap is wonderful for sensitive skins and allows for a soft smooth shave. Use with a shaving brush.

Now pour the soap into the Organic Bean mould, spray the top with spraying alcohol to pop the bubbles (if there are any) and then leave the soap to set.
When the soap is cold to the touch (within about two hours) put gentle pressure on the mould and release the soaps.
Package them in the RBS Box Square Natural with straw. Then cover the box with cellophane. Tie a raffia bow over the box and add the label you have downloaded from the website.

Golden Amber Soaps - Recipe 100

Tag Label download here

Splash of Gold Amber Soaps:
I melted pure white farmhouse soap and fragranced it with amber fragrance. I took about 100ml of melted soap aside and mixed in gold powder. I put a splash of gold into the bottom of each rectangle mould (SB45). I left the gold a few minutes to set and then I poured the white amber soap into the mould to the top.

Golden Amber Flower Soaps:
I made soap flowers from white farmhouse soap fragranced with amber fragrance. (See recipe No 50 in Soap Barn Book 2 for step by step details how to make the soap flowers). I found that I did not need to mix flexine into the farmhouse soap to make the flowers - which saves a whole lot of money! I dusted the flowers with gold dust. Then I sprinkled some mother of pearl glitter into the bottom of each mould and placed the flower face down. I pour clear glycerine soap fragranced with amber over each flower filling the mould to the top. Unfortunately my picture does not do justice to this very beautiful soap. Come into the shop to see the real thing on display.

Rubber Mould Making Step-by-Step - Recipe 105



Make your own rubber moulds using Soap Barn's Magic-Mould:
Carve a design out of a bar of commercial soap. I use this soap because it is hard and non porous and will not melt at 140 degrees (melting point of Magic-Mould)


Place your carved soap in a foil pie tin


Melt your Magic-Mould in a glass bowl or jug in the microwave. Put it in for one minute at a time till it is melted (Please see below for full melting instructions for Magic-Mould).


Pour your melted Magic-Mould over the soap and fill the foil tin so it covers the soap completely.


Leave your Magic-Mould for two hours to set and then peel away the foil tin. Underneath (where the flat side of the soap rested on the bottom of the tin) you will have a hole though which to remove your carved soap.


Remove your soap and hey hey hey there is your new mould!


Pour melted soap into your new mould and leave to set. So simple and so easy.
When you get bored with your new mould just remelt your Magic-Mould and start again from scratch!



back to top



Magic Mould

Using your Magic Mould:
Choose an object that you wish to copy and make a mould from.

The object must be hard, non-porous and must not melt at 140 degrees.

You can sculpt or carve a shape from a bar of commercial soap.

Place the object you wish to mould in a non-porous container that will not melt. I use foil tins. You can use glass, ceramic or tin.

Melt your Magic-Mould in the microwave 1 minute at at time in a glass pyrex jug. Check and stir in between each minute.
Magic mould can burn so make sure it is never in for more than one minute at a time.
If you burn your magic mould it cannot be used or re-used.


Magic-Mould gets very hot and can cause horrible burns - it’s not a toy and should not be used by children.
Always use oven gloves when melting and pouring. Never touch the melted Magic-Mould.

When your Magic-Mould is melted and very runny pour over your mould object. Leave two hours to set. Remove your new mould!

Magic mould can be used over and over again. All you need to do is re-melt your Magic-Mould and start over again.

More Soaps in a Bucket - Recipe 107

Star Soaps for Christmas
The star soap is made the same way as the Christmas tree soap above. I removed the Lemongrass and Sugarcane soap from the bucket and cut the star out of the soap. I placed it back in the bucket when cut and poured melted farmhouse liquorice soap around it. When it was set I cut it into slices.


Curls and Swirls Soap
I cut 3cm slices out of each bucket of farmhouse soap: lemongrass and sugarcane, pure white and liquorice. With a potato peeler I peeled thin strips from each slice and then rolled them up. I placed all the rolled soaps back in the bucket (upright) and poured melted clear glycerine soap over them. I fragranced the clear soap with lemon fragrance. When it was set I removed the soap from the bucket, and cut it into slices. I cut the sides off the rounds so I could have square soaps.


Polka Dot Blue Soaps
I removed the blueberry and lime farmhouse soap from the bucket. I cut long tubes out of the blueberry and lime farmhouse soap with and apple corer and placed them back in the bucket - standing upright. I then poured melted blue ocean mist glycerine soap into the bucket right to the top. When the soap was set I unmoulded it from the bucket and cut it into slices. I then cut off the sides to make lovely polka dot blue squares.

Bath salts fine (Soap Barn)
Empty Capsules (Soap Barn)
Small PVC Envelope (Soap Barn)

WHY DO HAPPY PILLS MAKE YOU HAPPY?
Drop a couple of Happy Pills into the bath and you will instantly be happier! The Happy Pills will colour and fragrance your water. If you are soaking in a lime green bath breathing in the wonderful fragrance of lemongrass how could you not be happy? If you are soaking in light blue water with the wonderful scent of ocean mist surrounding you - please tell my how you could possibly not be happy?! If you are relaxing in a orange bath with the smell of pina colada surrounding you - how on earth you could you not be absolutely delighted?!

Marbled Loaf Farmhouse Soap - Recipe 109

Requirements:
2kg White Farmhouse (Soap Barn)
Mica colours or luminous paste colours (Soap Barn)
Loaf
Potato Peeler / Chip Cutter/ Grater

Method:
I used big open curls of coloured soap to get this marbled soap. I filled the loaf tin with big soap curls right to the top. Then I poured my white soap over. The white soap melted the curls and they all dropped to fill only half the tin. I waited for that to set and then I refilled the loaf tin with more curls. Again I poured white soap over and the curls melted into the soap and produced the marbled effect.

Melt 1kg Farmhouse soap and then fragrance it. Use 10ml fragrance per kg.
Divide the soap into small bowls and colour each bowl of soap with either mica colours or luminous paste colours (see website: www.soapbarn.co.za for colour prices and details). We use these particular colours for the soap loaves because they don’t bleed.
Pour your coloured soaps into square moulds and leave to set. They will be the colour blocks you need to work with when you make your various loaves.
Take your coloured blocks and chop them with a chip cutter, or peel curls with a potato peeler or grate them finely with a vegetable grater.
Fill your loaf tin with the soap chunks/ peels or gratings one colour on top of the next for a layered effect
Melt your second kg of Farmhouse soap and fragrance it. Pour it hot over the coloured chunks/ curls/ gratings right to the top of the tin
Leave your soap four to five hours to set and then knock the soap out of the tin
Cut the soap into a brick by slicing off the slanted sides. Then slice the loaf into thick chunky soaps for washing. Leave the rough edges of the top layer because that adds texture and interest to your soap slice.
The Farmhouse soap feels wet when it is first unmoulded but leave it for an hour and it will dry. I like to leave the slices two days to cure before I wrap them, that way they will be harder and lather wonderfully.

Bath Time Puzzle - Recipe 110

Requirements:
White Farmhouse soap (Soap Barn)
Fruity fragrances (Soap Barn)
Neon paste colours (Soap Barn)
Puzzle mould (Soap Barn)
Large two row box(Soap Barn)

Method:
Melt your white Farmhouse soap, fragrance and colour it and then pour it into the puzzle mould.
Colour the soap with neon/luminous colour paste. Let me warn you that the yellow one smells absolutely terrible and you need to add lots of fragrance to cover that smell. I would leave it out altogether but it makes the most amazing neon yellow and green colours. The yellow mixes with a little blue to make a gorgeous green and the pink mixes with a tiny bit of blue to make a stunning purple. The pink and orange pastes are fabulous by themselves and unlike the yellow they don’t smell bad. Leave to set. Leave for two hours and when the soap in the mould feels cold you can pop it out of the mould. It will feel wet immediately after you unmould it. Leave the soaps for an hour and they will feel dry.
Package your soap puzzles in a large two row box for a wonderful gift. (I leave the box flat and not made up so the pieces fit in nicely. I punched holes at the ends of the box and I threaded ribbon through.
