To create your very own set of hand made glycerin soap bars, here is what you’ll need:
- Melt and Pour Soap - Slice into meltable chunks
- Fragrance (optional)
- Dried Botanicals (optional)
- A soap mould and slicer
- Microwave / Double boiler
Open / Cut: Simply open the packaging, safely cut the Crystal soap base into smaller cubes, doing this will make the soap easier to handle and melt.
Melt: Gradually heat the soap base ensuring that the soap melts evenly and does not boil and burn. If you are melting in a microwave please be careful and keep an eye on the soap as it can bubble over the container.
Mix: You can use Essential Oils, 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. At this point you can add dried botanicals to the surface of the soap, by gently pressing them into the top of the soap if you wish.
Create: Once your soaps have set and fully hardened simply remove from the moulds. We recommend always wrapping your soap bars immediately after releasing from the moulds to protect and preserve the soap.
