Soap Making – Sandalwood Men’s Soap

What you need

1.5 pound of Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
2 tablespoons coffee grounds (used grounds are best, dried out)
1 tablespoon Paprika seasoning
1/2 tablespoon Poppy Seeds
30 drops Sandalwood Fragrance Oil 
Silicone Soap Mold 
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Woodcraft sticks for stirring
Rubbing alcohol


Instructions

Directions:

Cut soap into one inch cubes.

Divide soap evenly into 3 measuring cups.

Melt the first set of soap base in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well. If not completely melted, continue heating in 10 second intervals, until fully melted.

Let sit for a few minutes. Add 15 drops Sandalwood fragrance oil and ¾ of the coffee grounds. 

Stir coffee grounds into soap base and pour into soap mold. Sprinkle remaining coffee grounds in top. Spray liberally with rubbing alcohol to reduce bubbles and allow the next layer to bond well.

Let soap set undisturbed for about an hour.

Melt the second set of soap base in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well. If not completely melted, continue heating in 10 second intervals, until fully melted.

Let sit for a few minutes. Stir well, and add 15 drops Sandalwood fragrance oil and ¾ of Paprika (for natural colorant)

Stir Paprika into soap base and pour into soap mold. Sprinkle remaining Paprika on tops of soap layer. Spray liberally with rubbing alcohol to reduce bubbles and allow the next layer to bond well.

Let soap set undisturbed for about an hour.

Melt the third set of soap base in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well. If not completely melted, continue heating in 10 second intervals, until fully melted.

Let sit for a few minutes. Stir well and add 15 drops Sandalwood fragrance oil and ⅔ of Poppy Seeds (for natural colorant)

Stir Poppy Seeds into soap base and pour into soap mold.

Using a craft stick, make swirling motions in the soap with this layer, continuing until soap is slightly hard. This provides a bumpy effect, just for looks.

Sprinkle remaining poppy seeds down the middle and spray liberally with rubbing alcohol.

Allow soap to set for 2 hours. Remove from mold and cut into one inch bars.
