4 oz. translucent melt & pour soap base
Tiny amount of purple coloring

This project uses the Melt & Pour Method to of soap making.

1. Slice 2 oz. of the  soap and put in a small double boiler-just glass measuring cup and a small saucepan.

2. Pour into a small mold, spraying away any bubbles with alcohol or witch hazel.

3. Freeze for about 15 minutes.

4. Once hardened, cut out some discs with a paring knife [using it like a compass]. The discs should be about the size of a quarter or a nickel. Place in mold and return to freezer.

5. The remaining 2 oz. should be cut up and melted. Add the purple coloring, followed by the lavender essential oil.

6. Pour into the mold with the discs.

7. Refrigerate or freeze until soap is hard.

8. Remove soap from mold.

9. Allow the soap has reach room temperature.

  1. Question- Where could I find soap bases?

  2. i have been looking for a simple soap recipe to try.Wow! This is great. Lots of ideas come to mind for flavors. Thanks so much for this one. HUGS,Judy

  3. Last time I checked 36 oz= 2 pounds,4 ounces(1 pound=16 ounces), so now the instructions are very confusing.

  4. Sounds Lovely.. Will add it to my todo list
