Can I just say that I LOVE orange fragrances? And when mixed with vanilla for a sort of, creamsicle type scent- Heaven. The two together make a combination that is soooo yummy.

This soap is just that: Yummy. With bergamot essential oil (bergamot smells like oranges if you didn?t know) and sweet accents of vanilla, you?ll want to suds up with this bar every day!

And did you look at it? It?s very pretty. Pale orange and white gently swirled through each bar- oh lala!

Grab you supplies and make some for yourself!

Orange and vanilla were the two fragrances I was shooting for when making this recipe. Bergamot essential oil is sweet and citrusy like a juicy orange so it worked perfectly. Originally I planned on using vanilla essential oil, but I only had vanilla butter fragrance oil on hand, so I went with it. You can use vanilla essential oil or any fragrance that?s vanilla based.

Begin by melting down the cubed Goat Milk base into a smooth, creamy liquid.

Add in 1 teaspoon of vanilla essential oil or fragrance and stir well to combine.

Carefully pour the soap base into the loaf pan.

Next, melt down the shave soap base and stir in 1 teaspoon of Bergamot essential oil. Bergamot oil is tinted yellow so it will add color to your base. If you?re happy with the color you can stop at this step and move onto pouring. I wanted my base to be more orange so I used a little soap color to achieve the finish I was looking for. You can do this with mica powders, liquid soap colors, or block soap colors.

Carefully pour the mixture over the first layer. The two bases will swirl themselves, so no need to do any additional work! You?ll see how beautiful the swirling looks when you slice it after the block has set.

Allow the soap to cool and set completely before removing from the mold. Using a straight soap cutter cut the soap into evenly sized slices.

Isn?t the swirling of the two colors gorgeous?! I just love the way these soaps turned out! They look just as pretty as they smell J

    1. Hi Patricia! It can be melt down in a microwave in a microwave safe container or in an oven with containers that can withstand the heat.

      Happy Creating!

  1. I’m still trying to work up to making soap…with your soap bases it sounds like a lot of the work is done. Does this need to cure, then?

  2. What happens if you omit the “Shaving SFIC (all natural) Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base” will it just have less lather?

    1. Hi Dawn you are correct! If you omit the Shaving SFIC (all natural) Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base it will lather less.

  3. Hi,
    I am so new at this and can’t wait to start. you are so patient in explaining everything, thank you. How long should it take for “dry to the touch” in order to start to use the soap? A day a week ??

  4. How quickly do I need to add the shave soap base to the goat soap base for them to swirl? I am worried that it will make layers instead of a swirl.

    1. For best use the soaps should be used 6 to 12 months after products; the scrubs should be used within 2-3 weeks for best results, if you’d like it to last longer, a preservative such as the Liquid Germal Plus or Optiphen Plus (Paraben and Formaldehyde Free) is recommended; and the lotions can last around 2 to 3 weeks if the base doesn’t have a preservative, or up to 24 months if a suitable preservative is added.
