- Fragrance if you wish
- Add dried botanicals if you wish
- A soap mold and slicer
- Microwave / double boiler
Open / cut - Determine amount of melt and pour soap base needed for your project. Carefully slice soap base into smaller cubes, doing this will make the soap easier to handle and melt.
Melt - Heat at melting temperature between 80°C - 90° If you are melting in a microwave, please be careful and keep an eye on the soap as it can bubble over the container. If you are melting in a double boiler on stove Stir between intervals until liquid. gradually heat the soap base ensuring that the soap melts evenly and does not boil and burn. Add water 1-2% for moisture loss while melting.
Mix- Stir in you can use Essential Oils, Fragrances, Colours, Botanicals and Additives. Simply add to the melted soap base, mix gently ensuring that any fragrance you have added is evenly distributed throughout the soap base.
Pour - working quickly, simply pour your soap base into your soap mould. Remove the soap from the mold after it solidifies and pack it in a shrink wrapping paper.
