Inserting color touch in your home decor by creating your own soap could be a good idea.
- 280g of Crystal Melt and Pour Soap base
- 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds
- 20 drops of white musk essential oil
- Few Drops of color base for soap
You need :
- A measuring cup that goes in the microwave
- A chopstick to stir
- A silicone mold (I used one for ice cubes)
I was looking for a scale to weight my soap base and was very pleased to discover that our big food scale was Mint!
So put the Soap Base in a microwavable measuring cup that you would have cut in small cubes (to facilitate the melting process).
I followed recommendations that I have find online and only did 30sec per 30 sec as apparently if the soap base starts cooking, the soap is ruined!
Contrary to the candle’s process, there will be no color alteration between the making of the soap and the end result.
Once you are finished with the color, add the essential oil. Don’t add it at the beginning as there is a higher risk of evaporation due to the temperature of the soap base.
If you don’t have a silicone mold, you can use Ice cube tray as I did and remove the soap with a knife once they are dry.
Soap can add a nice touch of color in your home (Kitchen and Bathroom mainly).
And if you are like me, you probably added too much essential oil, and now have a lovely smell in both places.
