WELCOME TO FOUR DAUGHTERS SOAP BLOG
IN THE BEGINNING........
How Four Daughters All Came About: 4
Generations ago, my great grandmother, taught my grandmother how to make soap. My great grandmother, lived in the Catskill Mountains, which are very beautiful. There is a lot of history in the Catskill Mt area. My great grandmother had 4 daughters whom she
taught the art of soapmaking. One of them was my grandmother, who taught her four daughters how to make soap. Although my mother was not too enthusiastic about teaching how to make soap, over the years I collected her recipes, that were passed on down to her
over the generations. My mother had 4 daughters, and I, have 4 daughters. Amazing. As things are progressing for my hobby of soapmaking, I am showing my 4 daughters how to make soap, and lotions. Even my grandchildren are getting excited. Although none of
my daughters have 4 daughters, I am sure that the grandchildren may or may not follow thru even if it is only a hobby. Now, I am passing some of the recipes out to the world to see, with some how to instructions. Although, you may just want to purchase an
already prepared soap loaf, then you can slice it into bars for yourself or to give as gifts. Thank you.
SOAP MAKING AND CROCHETING IS A HOBBY OF MINE, AND I HOPE YOU LIKE IT TOO
I had wanted to show people my two hobbies that I really like a lot. One is crocheting the other is soap making. As you know, by the paragraph above, why I named my hobby of soap-making Four Daughters. It is just a hobby right now, but I hope to make
it into something bigger later on if I get the chance to and God-willing. The soaps pictured in these photos are soaps that one can get in a kit. And the instructions are so simple and easy. If I can do it, so can you. A lot of people and I will be honest
with you, a lot of people look down on me because of my past. But I am trying, really trying to do what is right, and sometimes it is not good enough for anyone no matter what I do.
Anyhow, I hope you will follow along with me, to see any new things
that I post on this blog concerning my hobbies of soap-making and crocheting. I know I am not going to get rich with my hobby, I just want to show other people what I do, and to encourage all of you to follow your dreams, no matter what they are.
Soon To Come In the Near Future: Easy to Make Soaps
Welcome, this is a new beginning for Four Daughters Homemade Soaps and Lotions. I will be listing easy recipes to follow, if you want to learn how to make your own soaps. The photo of the flip flop soap is easy to make from a simple mold. You can purchase
the mold from Four Daughters, along with the sampler kit. I have a few soapmaking kits which children can easily do, its fun, plus, they feel so good about themselves at the same time. Take for instance the these flip flops soaps, they look so cute,
and would be nice for a summer day, adorning your bathroom. Your guests will marvel at how unique they are, and the smell of citrus or any summer scent you like will make your bathroom smell good.
This photo along side of this text is one of our newest
additions: Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake, with Strawberry Frosting. Sold as a kit or One cupcake. It looks so good you will want to EAT IT! YUM! Sweet Strawberry is the fragrance, made with a Three butter base: Whipped Shea butter, Coconut oil and Strawberry
I plan on having other unique soaps to offer in the near future, such as: An Easter Egg with a toy inside, or Duckys floating on top of waves, or Animal soaps for children. Get them involved in making soap, easy directions, with the
sampler kits. Other soaps will include the beautiful swirl soaps, Honey Almond Soaps with Oatmeal, Spa Soap with Charcoal bottom, lotion bars, making Goat's Milk Lotions, and much more. Check our online store for new additions, such as the Butterfly Swirl,
or the Mantra Swirl.
You can also find some of my crochet items and soaps on Etsy.com under the shop name of Grandmascafe.
Flip Flop Summer Soap....
A LITTLE ABOUT MELT & POUR SOAP
SURF'S UP! THESE CUTE LITTLE SURF BOARDS AND CHARMING CARTOON CHARACTERS IN FRONT OF THE SURF BOARDS, ARE MADE FROM MELT & POUR SOAP. THESE ARE SOON TO COME ON OUR ONLINE STORE THIS SUMMER.
MELT & POUR SOAP IS SO EASY TO MAKE. I WANTED
TO TRY TO STAY AWAY FROM LYE, WHICH IS A MUCH NEEDED INGREDIENT WHEN MAKING SOAP. I FOUND OUT THAT WITH THE MELT & POUR SOAPS, THERE IS NO NEED TO USE LYE. MAYBE SOMEDAY I WILL GET BRAVE ENOUGH TO TRY IT, BUT RIGHT NOW THE M & P SOAP IS THE EASIEST
To get started, simply purchase any base for the soap you wish to make, there are so many to choose from, but i am only going to list a few here: Honey, Goat's Milk, Vegetable, and Coconut. These bases are relatively very reasonable in price.
They come in 2 lb blocks, I would order two (2) to be on the safe side. Then you are going to need some molds. When I make soap loafs, I use a silicone soap loaf mold. Easy to take the soap out and easy cleanup.
MELT the melt & pour soap base in
a microwavable glass container, (measuring cup); place in microwave, and heat for 30 seconds, stirring every 10 seconds. You can add your dye before you put the base in the microwave or after. It doesn't matter. When the base has liquified, add your fragrance,
stir til throughly mixed. Pour this in your mold. If you want to have layers, simple do this process all over again,using a different color dye. But make sure, before you pour the liquid base in the mold, that you spray the bottom of the mold with rubbing
alchohol. This eliminates bubbles from forming. After you have poured the base in the mold, squirt it a few times with the rubbing alcohol too. Then, if you are layering it, simply pour the other liquid on top of the first one. If you want to have swirls in
your soap, just layer the remaining two liquids, on the top, and take a toothpick or chopstick over the two or three layers, and swirl it in a figure eight.
Place the soap loaf in the refrigerator, and wait overnight, take it out next day, and unloosen
the sides of the silicone loaf mold, turn it upside down, and the loaf will come out. Slice it in the thickness you desire. Wrap individual soaps in plastic wrap, seal with a sticker or piece of tape. There you have it.
Hopefully in the future, I will
be able to put a video on here to show you how to make Melt and Pour Soap. For now, I hope this has helped you. Thank you. Remember, please leave me your comments, tips or advice on how you think I can better Four Daughter's Website and I will send you a FREE
bar of soap. Free shipping. Thanks!! Warmest Wishes, Martha
