Today I had to make some soap samples for Out of the box sampler that I will be sending in for the Easter Sampler so I thought I'd make a tutorial to go with it.
What you'll need:
Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base (I used white)
Essential oils (I used Coconut Lime Verbena & Lemongrass)
Soap Dye (I used yellow)
Silicone Rosette Mold
All of these items can be purchased at your local craft store.
You'll also need:
1 kitchen knife to cut the soap
A microwave (or double boiler if you don't have a micro)
Pyrex measuring cup (or any microwave safe bowl)
I needed to make 25 rosettes so my portions were large but essentially I just over sized the following:
8-10oz Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Melted
10-20 drops Coconut Lime Verbena Essential Oil
10 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
10 drops yellow soap dye
Put it in the microwave and cook for 1 min, remove stir an repeat until melted.
Now that everything is melted
add the essential oils
Add the color
Once set remove from the molds and enjoy your very own
