Sorcery Soap Dough

Moldable Soap Recipe by Sorcery Soap™Herb Garden Soap

When making soap dough, or moldable soap there is, like all other soaps, a balance of water.

For the first few times using any recipe its a good idea to avoid fragrance oils, just so you know how the base recipe preforms.

Sorcery Soap Dough 

For advanced Soap Makers

This recipe is for advanced soap makers only. If you do not know about soap safety, or how to handle lye, please visit SoapQueenTV or any number of soap teachers on youtube. Google is your friend, just ask her and she’ll point you in a direction.

I’m sharing this information, not because I think of myself as a teacher, but to help those who want to expand their soaping repertoire, explore more creative options and those who are inspiring themselves. 

*Critical piece of information: I always soap at room temperatures: 70-85 degree fahrenheit. 

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Always keep the soap covered and sealed from air. Saponification does not need air, but curing does.
  • The amount of water in soap is important. It keeps the soap pliable and soft. This is the water percent I use, however, I live in the desert.
  • Keep the new soap sealed. If you are using a mold after 12-24 hours, unmold and put in a sealed plastic bag.
  • Test your soap by rolling a small ball, examine how it feels. Is it sticky?
  • Use in 3-5 days.
  • Your soap dough should be ideal to use.

I will be posting another “lard free” recipe soon!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

When Working With your Soap Dough

  • When working with soap, use a muslin bag filled with corn starch to keep the soap from sticking to the work surface and itself. Too much corn starch will leave your soaps looking powdery so use with frugal care.
  • Spraying tools with 91% alcohol will keep cutters and plungers from sticking.
  • Spraying with water will make soap dissolve. Remember how soap behaves in the shower?
  • Once removed from the sealed container, soap will begin evaporation and curing.
  • Be patient with yourself, if you want to make embeds by hand, it will take time to learn.

Sorcery Soap Dough Molding Soap

Learning from soap seems to be never ending. 

When I make soap to mold with fragrance oils, I can see how the fragrance oil reacts to my recipe. Some times it appears more transparent, stickier or has an odd consistency.

Some soap is ultra smooth, and those, generally, do not have fragrance in them. Do not misunderstand, this is not desire to discount fragrance oils. Of all people, I’m not that woman. I love fragrance oils.

Sorcery Soap Apron and Soap Dough

To be clear, I am saying that I can see more deeply how the fragrance oils behave when squishing, mashing, and squeezing soap through my fingers, inasmuch as a baker can feel her bread dough. Some molding soaps have more resiliency or can be stretched and pulled, just like dough, where as others, it is simply too sticky to preform in the same way.

I see more about each batch by examining the soap in this way, than I did by just making bars and using them.

What I’m looking for: 

I want to see a dough that is pliable, and doesn’t cause cracks. A soap dough that is wet enough to mush and mash, but not so much so that I have to use a lot of corn starch to avoid sticking. Too much corn starch can cause white spots of pocket corn starch.

See this video for more help:

Most of my molding soap no longer has scent added to it and each batch it better than the last.
