Good Fortune Fire Cracker Soap (DIY) Chinese New Year 2019 Special

Hi everyone! We’re back with our second CNY special soap. This season, if you want to gift something special and also useful, we’ve got the solution for you. This next soap, was inspired by something you definitely hear during festivities… fire crackers! 

We begin by making our cold process soap using coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil and palm oil.  All these which have many skin benefits… and the best part? All natural and no unknown chemicals. 

We then need to make it look like a fire cracker soap, if not boring kan? We use two colors here.. .vibrant Saffron and Sparkle Gold. For the scent, we will be going with Orange Juice fragrance oil, quite fits the CNY theme ;)  Finally, we add in Almond oil for its skin beneficial properties like protecting from UV rays and preventing aging  as the vitamin A in Almond oil fights free radicals just like what oranges do. Be sure to send over your photos once you make it!

Visual Guide  

  1. Combine lye flakes with distilled water carefully. Wear gloves & long sleeves to avoid backsplash getting in contact with exposed skin. 

  2. Slowly mix with a whisk until all the lye flakes have dissolved in the distilled water. Solution may become hot, do be cautious. 

  3. To bring lye solution to room temperature, place container in a water bath. 

  4. Separately, pour your Oil Mix into a heat resistant mixing container. Add in room temperature Lye Water into the mix.  

  5. Next, use a whisk and mix until it reaches thin trace. Timing of this may vary as the faster you mix, the faster solution will saponify and reaches thin trace. 

  6. Add in Orange Juice Fragrance Oil into the mixing container using a pipette. Mix again with a whisk. 

  7. Next, pour half of the mixture into another mixing container. 

  8. To one of the container, add in Saffron Mica that has been diluted with Almond Oil. Again, mix with a whisk.

  9.  Next, spray silicon mold with rubbing alcohol & pour in half of the mixture.

  10. Using a fine strainer, sprinkle on some Sparkle Gold Mica. 

  11. Next, pour all of the mixture from the other mixing container into the mold. 

  12. Sprinkle on some more Sparkle Gold Mica using a fine strainer. Once done, pour in the rest of the Saffron soap mixture on top of the mica. Save some to for piping later. 

  13. Using a spatula, create soft waves on top of the soap. 

  14. Transfer the rest of the soap mixture into a disposable piping bag. 

  15. Pipe on the top of the soap, loosely taking inspiration from a exploding fire cracker. Once done, leave soap to harden for 24 hours. 

  16. Once harden, remove soap from mold carefully. 

  17. Cut soap using a soap cutter according to desired size. You may also use a normal kitchen knife :)
