The Life’s a Beach soap at the store was probably the 3rd best seller. After the Egyptian Musk and the Blackberry Orange. We also sold a lotion, perfume oil, and bath salts all with this scent that we created from scratch. The image below shows a very tropical looking soap! This is done with layering, and placement of a previously make orange tube of soap, and an elongated white sliver of soap.
Life’s a Beach soap recipe, a very tropical scent:
- Basic #2 Recipe: (other recipes here)
51.2 oz Olive oil or Olive/Canola oil blend
6.2 oz Coconut Oil
6.2 oz Palm Oil
8.6 oz lye crystals
for this scented bar, add:
- 5 T of the Life’s a Beach fragrance oil blend (recipe below)
wide variety of choices here, I like the beachy blue, sea foam, sand colors – can’t go wrong with any of those by itself or with layers
- calendula petals to represent sand and/or beach dried plant material
NOTE: you can cut this recipe in halves or quarters to make smaller batches. You don’t have to use any Canola Oil, but if you use all Canola Oil your soap will develop spots. A Canola and Olive oil blend will help cut the costs.
This bar below is how I had made my Life’s a Beach tropical soap. With the 2 colors representing the mango and papaya scents:
Below is another option for this tropical bar. Because of the 4 scents, 4 colors work perfectly, and adds a cheerfulness too:
Another version to represent the tropical beach theme of this soap. Nice muted yet colorful layers of colors used to show ocean waters and sand and foam:
the Life’s a Beach fragrance oil recipe:
- make any amount, just keep the ratios the same
- 2 T mango papaya fragrance oil
- 1 T toasted coconut fragrance oil
- 1 T jasmine fragrance oil
The soap image below shows a great example of how one beachy-sea-foam type color can look great all by itself (this is a glycerin bar):
Here’s a link to a page for a mango papaya soap where they are lying! First they lie, then they put the real ingredients on the page. Duh.
