– Hello everyone, welcome
back to Royalty Soaps. My name is Katie Carson. I am the duchess of suds at this channel, and today we are gonna
be making a natural soap. Now lots of different people
define natural differently, but the way I define it is
no artificial ingredients, like micas or fragrances. So everything in today’s soap you can find or extract from something in nature. It has kaolin clay, has rose clay, it has essential oils in
it, nothing artificial. This essential oil blend is my favorite that I’ve done thus far. It’s so gentle and calming, and yet it’s still really pretty. It’s a pretty essential oil blend, which I find is a little hard to come by. Most of the time, to me, essential oils always
smell super super clean, or very rustic, so like a
pine, cedarwood type thing, or kinda soapy or citrusy, so like lemons and grapefruit and stuff. But this is like almost perfumey. It’s really nice. So without further ado,
let’s make some rose clay and pink sea salt soap. Today is going to be one
of the more simpler soaps that I have lined up for
this month’s collection, but sometimes I think the greatest beauty is in the simplicity itself,
and I truly believe that. I know we do lots of really fancy soaps over here at Royalty Soaps. Lots of colors, lots of cool designs, but sometimes you just gotta take it back to the pure and simple. I wanna give this a quick
mix with my stick blender. This is our lye-water
solution into our oils. (bright upbeat music) I’m just gonna take my whisk here, make sure there is no oil sitting on top. I really don’t wanna use
the stick blender that much because I want the batter
to stay really runny. And it is quite runny right now. Still at very, very, very thin
trace, just past emulsion. Now I’m gonna split off my
batter into two equal portions. And this whole soap is going to be colored with natural botanicals. So no micas, no ultramarines, no oxides. We’re just gonna be using clays and a little bit of titanium dioxide. The clays I have picked out
are rose clay and kaolin clay. So I really love rose clay
because of the pinky hue, and also just because it has
a very silky finish to it, as does kaolin clay. I actually used to make masks
for myself with kaolin clay, whenever my acne was really bad, because it was really helpful. Ah yes, I am now scrapey scraping out my big containey. Make sure all that soapy goodness is in. Here are my two mixes. This one has the kaolin clay
with the titanium dioxide. This one has the rose clay, and I mixed them both with very hot water. So, tip to the newbies, it’s
a lot easier to mix your clays with really hot water, than
it is to mix them with oil. I’m just gonna add that right in. Scrape out my little corn cups. By the way, these corn cups can actually be washed out and used again. They’re really hardy little things. Here goes the kaolin. And I’m gonna start by
whisking in the clays because clays have a tendency to make your soap a little bit thicker. And even with me whisking,
I can already feel the soap coming to a medium trace. Here’s the pink. Ohh, it’s so pretty! (giggles) And honestly, you can do lots
of different shades of pink with rose clay. You can do kind of a bricky
pink, which is what I have here, or you could add just a teeny tiny bit and it could be a very pale pink. It’s just whatever your
own personal preference is. And now it’s time for
the essential oil blend. This is probably what I would call the most gorgeous essential
blend I’ve used thus far, probably because it has ylang-ylang in it. It smells so delicate, but it also has a little bit
of rosemary and lavender 4042. It’s just really nice. Lovely, now I’m gonna stick-blend
in the essential oils, and mix in the clay really well. I have just a teeny tiny bit here on top of the essential oil left over. So I’m just gonna whisk that in, and then we’re gonna
blend these two together in our large container. So I’m gonna start with the pink soap. I’m gonna pour, oh, about this much. I’ll probably do three or
four passes into the bucket. It’s just the right amount of thickness. That’s what I was waiting
to see if it would do, if it would displace it, or
if it would just overwhelm it. And it is definitely
moving it out of the way, so it’s not gonna be too swirly. Now, the pink container, I’m
actually going to scrape out, because I want most of the
pink on the inside of the soap. And then the white
container, I’m gonna leave. I’m gonna spatula that onto the top, and then I’m gonna texture it before I put my botanicals and salts on. Now that I have everything
in my large bucket, we’re going to wait a second and then pour it into our large slab mold after this potential
quick commercial break. Now I waited a second for this to set up because I have already swirled the soap quite a lot in the pot. And I really don’t want it to over-swirl when I’m pouring here,
so I got it kinda chunky, and I wanna be able to texture the top. Now I’m just gonna let it
come out in the corner, come in this corner, a
little in this corner, a little in this corner. Gonna go ahead and scrape
out my big containey. All right, time to put the white on top, and I’m just gonna focus it on the areas that have the most pink. In other words, I’m not gonna
put a whole bunch over here, ’cause that already looks pretty white. And I’ll probably smooth
it down with my spatula, because once again, this is really just to get rid of some of that pink on top so our roses really stand out. Eh, what the heck, we’ll
put some over here. Don’t wanna leave anyone out. (chuckles) My soap, the inanimate
object, and I’m like, “I don’t wanna hurt your feelings.” Okay, so now, using my spatula, I’m just gonna smooth this out a little. Once again, we’re gonna
texture this top anyway, so it doesn’t really have
to be perfect, I just wanna, okay, now that I have given
it a little bit of a texture, and I’ve smoothed all that white out, we’re gon’ tap it down on the ground. Let’s tap it. (box tapping) (grunts) (breathing heavily) I don’t know which thing’s redder, (chuckling) the soap or my face. I need a tailor, ’cause I ripped my pants. I’m just kidding, I actually need a spoon. All right, let’s give her
a good texture on top. Might come in and swirl it up a little bit after I put all these
big indentations on it. (humming) Looks like giant fish scales. I’ve never really mastered
making this texturing on top. I’m not very good at it, admittedly so. Everybody I see on Instagram always has these perfectly textured tops, and each one of their
individual bars looks so good, and I’m over here just making crap up and not doing anything right. (chuckling) I think I might need
to get a smaller spoon. I can’t tell. Well, that looks pretty good to me, and my opinion’s the
only one that’s valid. (laughing maniacally) Now, for the fun part. We get to put all the botanicals on top. So, we have some bath spa salts. These are from Wholesale Supplies Plus. They’re my favorite salts to use on top. We have some large pink sea salt. These are really, really nice. I just thought the pink looked really good with the whole color scheme and stuff. And then I have two types
of roses, because why not? We have red, and we have pink, so I think this is gonna
be smashing on top. I’m going to do the flowers first because it’s still a little sticky on top and I need to wait just a little while so that we don’t get any salt melting. I’m really not a fan of that look. I’m just gonna come down each little soap here. I may need some more flowers. (giggles) Excellent, excellent. I have yet to find a rose petal supplier that didn’t give me mostly stems. (laughs) I’m always pickin’ ’em out because it grosses me
out to have stems on top. Ew, ew, some are fine, I just don’t want really huge pieces. Those are the ones that gross me out. This was the first design that I created for the ardor collection. I felt like roses, the
pink clay, the ylang-ylang, it was all very French. It’s all very old world,
old-style romantic. And so, that’s what
kinda spurred on the idea for the rest of the soaps
in this month’s theme. And this is probably the
one I’m most attached to. And I really love being able
to use only essential oils. Now we’re gonna put on the two salts, but let’s put ’em on speedy style. (bright upbeat music) (whooshing) (salt rattling) I’m done. You guys, I am not gonna spritz
it, I’m not gonna cover it. What you’re seeing right here
is how I’m going to leave it for 18 to 24 hours because once again, I do not want those salts melting. Then we’ll come back and we
will split the slab into loaves and cut the loaves into bars. All of that and the question of the day after this quick commercial break. (bright upbeat music) Y’all, I have all the natural apothecary soap vibes right now. I’m living for it. I wanna do a whole month like this. Let’s turn sister on her
side here, line her up. We’re gonna lose a lot
of salts, as is typical, but that’s all right, ’cause
plenty of them will stay on. And I am gonna go very slowly, so as not to rip too many things off. Also, note the pink. It was a little bit of a different color whenever the soap was raw, but after going through saponification, it comes out lookin’ nice and pretty, and a lot less red. (slicer pings) Gonna slide one out, two
out I guess, (chuckles) and this is what it
looks like on the inside. Ooh. (chuckles) Also it’s really soft on my hands. Kaolin clay tends to do that. It makes for a very soft, luxurious bar, and as you can see, plenty
of botanicals stayed on top. I can’t tell you how good this smells. If you like a light floral
essential oil smell, this is definitely gonna
be the one for you. Ylang-ylang is used in a lot of perfumes, and it’s a very, very
versatile oil, in my opinion. It just smells gentle and sweet, and not too overwhelmingly floral. So it’s not gonna just zing your nose off. Look how nice they look all stacked up. Aww, a natural Valentine’s
Day bar set. (chuckles) I shall cut another while we
ask the question of the day. So, the question of the day is, do you prefer having organic, natural, skin-loving goodies inside your soap, or do you prefer having
natural botanicals on top? Of course, this soap has both. (salt crunches) (slicer pings) But for all of you skin
aficionados out there, I wanna know what’s more important to you. Do you crave coconut
milk, and tucuma butter, and lavender hydrosols, and all those sorts of things
on the ingredient list, or would you rather see
lots of pretty rose buds, and sea salts, and mica swirls on top? To vote on the question of the day, all you have to do is click the eye in the upper right-hand
corner of the screen. Do you love it? (giggles) Ah, it just smells so good. This is one that I’m gonna
have to steal for myself and use in my own bathroom. It’s also really funny because used to, you could probably see in some video that I made couple of years ago, me being like, “I don’t
like essential oils, “and I don’t like the way they smell.” Which was true back then, but I don’t know if it’s
because I’ve gotten older, or there’s been so many hormonal changes ’cause I’ve had two kids,
but as I’ve gotten older, I have really enjoyed the
natural-looking soaps, and the natural-smelling soaps. They just appeal to me. They’re very calming. So, this one was fun to make and you’re definitely gonna
see more like it in the future. If you enjoyed today’s video, feel free to give it a big thumbs up, subscribe to the channel,
leave us a comment down below if you would like to see tutorials for making natural,
botanically-colored soaps, because I’d love to do that for you guys if you’re interested, give other soap makers some
helpful tips and tricks. So be sure to let me know. Be sure you do something
fun for yourself today, whether that is making a pastry, any type of pastry you enjoy. I love all of them. (chuckles) Or perhaps starting some
seedlings in your bathroom, or in your greenhouse if
you have one of those. It’s now the time to
start getting those ready. I think I’m gonna try to do
a couple of different types of harvestable plants, so like maybe lettuce,
maybe some tomatoes. I have a big backyard this year. I think I should do that with Lily. And I’ll show you guys over
on my personal Instagram, if I do, which you should also follow, if you care anything about me and Kenny and our mom and all that. And if you’re just here for
soap, that’s awesome too. We have a Royalty Soaps
Instagram for that. Either way, do something
that makes you super happy, and I will see you guys next time. So until then, bye for now. (mimics airplane) (mimics splatting) (bright upbeat music) (chuckling) Dessert soap, dessoap. (horror music)

  1. I'm not biased I love ALL FORMS OF SOAP! For just soft natural flawless skin I mix up my usage of soap between natural and fun soap..but strictly natural for my skin health needs the clays n oils and essential oils keeps my skin..flawless as it can be naturally ..i like my skin to shine naturally without makeup and natural soaps help me with that result😉

  2. Has anyone bought the Pemberley purfume oil? I'm considering getting it but shipping is expensive so I wanna know if it's worth it

  3. I had to comment on this one. I wanted to let you guys know, that I am completely and utterly spoiled by your channel. Lol I tried watching a few others channel for coal soap and I just couldn't stick with them. Lol not that they didn't do well with their product. You my lady, can just keep my attention better. So, thank you!

  4. hey Me and my mom save been making soap but we added mocha powder and we got DOS 🙁 any tips for getting a good color?
    and also how do u get the toppings to stay?

  5. Natural all the stinking way!!! Less artificial less lab created scents!!!
    Please please keep making fully natural soaps!

  6. You should do a men's ylang ylang and myhrr (forgive if I spelled it wrong), men's soap! I had a massage oil that smelled so good when I used it on my husband.

  7. I have a citrus allergy and have to be very careful with essential oils. Normally I'm able to find the fragrance oil you've used and can read through its ingredients to determine if it's something I'll have an allergic reaction to or if it'll be safe for me to use. I'm sure, based on the fragrance notes you mentioned, that I should be okay, but I would like to be safe rather than sorry. Could you please post what essential oils you used for this?

  8. i am always in love with your soap designs but this one is definitely a favourite. it is so beautiful i really want to get my hands on one

  9. Katie i get food grade dried rose petals they have no ends .. i get a huge tub called spicia and they have barely no ends i use they for homemade bath salts with pink himiliyan epson and rose petals … i love soaps like these right up my alley..

  10. Stuff on top may be lovely, but those roses and salts are going to disappear in 1-2 uses. The stuff in the soap lasts for the life of the bar.

  11. The crunchies are pretty, but they'd all go down the sink and nope.

    But I'd kill to get a soap that has a sink-safe environmentally friendly stuff IN it that can scrub oil paints/pigments and carpenters glue from my hands. I used to have a soap with salt in it that was excellent but they don't make it anymore. I need scrapey for my hands. And if it can magically not dry them out? I mean that would be a bonus but honestly I need something that will get them clean.

    Love your video! Subbed!

  12. Dear Friend, I have always found your soaps too artificial!!! However, this is the first soap that you have made that I loved. CONGRATULATIONS, it was a beautiful design full of natural ingredients good on you. Best wishes, Marco

  13. I would ADORE seeing tutorials on natural soaps! I too have fairly recently fallen in love with more basic soaps and honestly they add years to my life 😍
    Katie you are cute as a button and I adore all of your content, and your beautiful family!! Lots of love to you and thank you for sharing the joy that you are with the rest of us 🤗❤
    (Also Kenny shouted me out for following his twitch channel while he played Just Dance and I doubt I'll ever get over it 😂)
