So today I decided to give this a go and it was so easy and literally all it is, is ‘melt and pour’! I know this is the simplest method but hopefully I can use this to experiment with different fragrances. You can also add vitamins to this but I thought I would keep it easy considering it was my first attempt.
What You Need
- Melt and Pour Goats milk soap mix
- Organic Honey
- silicone Mould
- Some colouring
- Bowl and spoon
Use 0.5KG of Melt and Pour Goats milk Soap mix and cut into squares. Place into a bowl and melt down. You can either do this in the microwave or oven a pan of water on the hob.
Add the honey into the melted soap mix. Use 4 tablespoons of this depending on how strong you want this you made need slightly more or less. The quality of the honey you use will have an effect on the end fragrance. I used organic honey to keep this soap natural and also get the strong sweet smells.
Use the spoon to mix the honey and the Goats milk Soap mix in a bowl. Make sure you don’t let this mixture set as when I made this it set quite quickly.
Pour the soap mix into your chosen mould. If you have lumps in the mixture (which you shouldn’t have) you can pour through a sieve into the mould.
Leave anywhere between 30mins and 2hours for the soap to set in the mould. This will depend on how deep the mould. Once set, turn is out and leave for a further hour to harden.
