Products you need to make this recipe

Do you have one or more of these ingredients already? No Problem! Choose only what you need and the total price will adjust accordingly.

Using only the natural colours from the raw materials in this soapy spa bar has resulted in a warm, apricot coloured soap, scented with pure essential oils, and a nice, diagonal stripe of Scrub Granules through the centre.  This is one of my favourite ways of including an exfoliant in soap; I don't always want a very scrubby bar, so it has a light intermittent exfoliating action with the strip in the centre of the bar.  *Note, we no longer stock Jojoba Scrub, please select your preferred scrub granules separately.

There are two options for the Scrub strip down the middle – either have a darker opaque strip, or use some clear soap – see the graphics for your choice. You only need extra clear soap in the trolley if you want a darker opaque strip. By using some of the opaque soap you'll have a creamier coloured strip.

This tutorial makes two batches of 6 soaps (so a total of 12 soaps) and you'll have some ingredients left over for another project.

What you need:


  • 2 x 750ml microwave safe jugs
  • Spatulas, spoons or stirring sticks
  • Digital Scales - helpful but optional
  • Spare tray or baking tray to place the moulds on
  • Thermometer – helpful, though optional
  • Pipette or dropper for essential oil or fragrance
  • Isopropyl Alcohol & Spritz Bottle
  • Clean Up Tool (or similar)

  • Measure Sodium Lactate into the small beaker or glass and add the Caramel clay to this, stir to remove any dry spots.
  • Dice the TBS Soap Base into cubes and place half (500g) into the Pyrex Jug and place in the microwave.
  • Heat in short bursts until the soap is liquid. Take care not to overheat the soap.
  • Once Liquid remove from the microwave and add sufficient clay to the soap until you reach a colour you are happy with.
  • Now add 20g/ml Heavly Essential Oil Blend and stir well.
  • Pour into the soap mould, spritz the surface with Isopropyl Alcohol to remove surface bubbles and allow to set.

  • Once this has set fully, mark one corner of the mould (so you keep it at the front left) and remove the soaps, one by one, and then slice a piece diagonally from the centre about 2 - 4mm wide.
  • Then carefully replace the two halves into the cavity they came froom and continue to divide the rest of the bars and replace back into the mould.

  • Use a chopstick or spatula to keep the halves to the edges of the mould cavities.
  • These are now ready for the jojoba scrub stripe.

Heavenly Jojoba Spa Soap Bars

  • There are two ways to make the centre stripe - very dark (using clear base) or pastel (using TBS base).
  • Dice approximately 200g of your chosen soap base and melt in the microwave.
  • Once melted remove from microwave and add the some of the pre-hydrated clay mixture if you are using.
  • Add 1 rounded teaspoon Jojoba Scrub Granules and mix well.
  • Spray the "gap" of each soap with alcohol to ensure the soap stays stuck when unmoulded.
  • Carefully pour each of the cavities and then allow to set up.

  • You can see the soaps in the three left hand cavities have three different colour tones of scrub - the three on the right have no opaque soap base.
  • I used some of the offcuts to make the left hand side lines a lighter colour shade.
  • Once completely set up remove from the mould and clean up any over pour or soap that has seeped under the bars.
  • Now wrap as usual

Note:  Items in the trolley include TBS Base. Also SLS/SLES Free Clear Soap and Sodium Lactate are included, just delete these if not required.  The Clean up Tool is not included in trolley items.
