Melt and pour soap is so fun and easy – you can do just about anything with it. Glycerin soap can be a beautiful work of art because it’s clear and you can see the fun add-ins, like herbs and spices, exfoliating ingredients, and even fun surprises your kids will love.
Makes up to 6 Bars of Soap
Prep time: 20 minutes
- 1 BAR OF UNFRAGRANCED GLYCERIN SOAP
- 3 T DRIED PASSIONFLOWER
- RASPBERRY LEAVES
- ORANGE AND LEMON ZEST OR ANY OTHER HERBS YOU LIKE
- OLIVE OIL COOKING SPRAY
STEP 1: Melt Soap
Cut the soap into smaller blocks, Place it in a glass bowl & melt it in the microwave for 30-second intervals until melted. Stir every so often to break up big chunks.
STEP 2: Add herbs & Citrus Zest
Once glycerin is melted, let it stand & cool for a few minutes.
Before it set’s too much, add the additives (If using citrus zest). Keep stirring to ensure they don’t all float to the bottom. When you have the colour you want (more time stirring = darker colour) pour into a container.
STEP 3: Setting the soap
Let the soap sit on the counter for about an hour to completely set.
Then put the soap mold in the freezer for another hour or so.
Then it should pop right out.
Wrap the soap in brown paper and adorn it with twine or washi tape.
