Have you ever tried Melt & Pour Soaps? I absolutely love how easy they are to play with and the results can be so fun and professional looking! Plus, who doesn’t love bath products that look cute and smell amazing? I made this homemade soap recipe with just a few basic soap supplies and love the way they turned out. There are so many different ways to customize these adorable soaps!
- Assorted Flowers Silicone Mold
- Goat Milk 2 Pound Soap Base Block
- Purple/Blue/Teal Soap Colorants
- Pink/Orange/Red Soap Colorants
- Ultra Fine Mist Spray Bottles
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Your favorite fragrance or essential oil blend
Following the instructions included on the packaging, melt the Goat’s Milk Soap and separate into 6 different small containers (I used disposable drinking cups). Add a few drops of soap dye to each container and mix and then add more dye until you’re happy with the colors. Add a few drops of fragrance or essential oils to each container if you’d like your soaps to be scented.
Carefully pour a small amount of each color into the bottom of the flower mold. You want just enough to fill the center section of each flower but not so much that it overflows.
Allow this initial pour to harden completely before moving on to the next step. You can speed up the process by placing the whole tray in the freezer for a few minutes.
Once the initial pour sections have hardened completely, spritz a bit of alcohol into the flower molds before filling with more soap. This will help the two sections adhere better.
Fill each flower mold with a coordinating color of soap. You can spray with alcohol again if any air bubbles form on the surface.
Allow to harden completely.
Once the soaps have hardened completely, carefully turn the soap molds inside out to get the soaps out. So easy and fun to see each soap “revealed.”
I absolutely love how colorful and pretty this homemade soap recipe turned out. I went with somewhat muted and pastel colors but Consumer Crafts has tons of soap dye colors to choose from!
