Hi TripkeHughes! I missed you! Making melt and pour soap is really easy, and addictive...here's how to do it.
What you will need: glass measuring cup with a soup for pouring, a spoon to stir with, something to use as a soap mold (I have used all kinds of stuff around the house, you don't have to buy a mold if you don't want to!) melt and pour soap found in your local craft store (there are lots of web sites to order from too, if you really get into it and want better quality soaps and supplies!) coloring....if you have food coloring in your cupboard, that will work for now, and scent. You'll find fragrace oil and essential oils in the craft store, too. The last thing you will need is either some non-stick cooking spray to coat your mold very lightly to make getting the soap out just a little easier, this is optional, but I think it helps if you are doing something intricate.
cut your soap into small squares, melt in the microwave...Be sure not to let the soap boil, and stir frequently, but gentley...you don't want to add bubbles in your soap. Once it's melted, add your coloring and fragrance, pour into your mold. Let is cool, and your done!!! That easy! Of course, it's soap, and it cleans up really easy. Once you get the hang of it (it only takes a few bars!) You'll be addicted and want to make all kinds of scents and shapes...my new favorites are a tye-dye look and my new favorite scent is a combination of raspberry and almond.
