I'm documenting the process so we know what to do should we ever want to make more soap, which we probably will since Christmas is coming and I'm becoming a huge fan of homemade gifts that Hen can make for family members.
|Cut up the melt and pour soap base.|
|Put your small pieces in a microwave safe container, unless you're using a double boiler.|
|Heat the soap base for 30 seconds, stir, heat for 10 seconds, stir, and continue to heat 10 seconds at a time until it is all melted. Add scents and coloring if using now.|
|Wait a few hours for the soap to harden and pop soap out of the mold. Do not place them in the fridge to harden faster.|
Note: We bought all of our materials for soap making at Michaels for around $20.
