This was an item that I originally got in order to put it in our holiday gift guide. However, I decided to crack it open and try it out myself. It’s super easy, really run and the outcome is ADORABLE. I wanted to show you the process and share with you how easy this whole process is. Also, consider that you can purchase these supplies on their own and go crazy with soap making!
So I opened up the kit and put it in it’s own container. I knew I’d want to recreate this again.
I cut the soap up. The instructions didn’t say I had to do this but I knew it would make the melting go more quickly.
I used a double boiler to melt the soap and stirred it a little along the way. It melted really quickly and it’s not something you could (or should) walk away from.
This is what the soap looked like melted (hard to see!). Then, I added a few drops of the scent and a few drops of food coloring. (I didn’t take a picture because this was very scientific…lol)
This is the super tricky part. Pouring it into the molds. I used two pot holders and poured it very carefully into them. There was more soap than mold so on both batches I threw a little away. If I had known ahead of time I would have had another small mold ready. As you can see, I wasn’t so steady and I spilled a little. The soaps still popped right out of the mold. I did have to wait longer than 15 minutes as the directions stated. I just peeled off the little odd ends and the soaps came out perfectly!
I can’t wait to give these as gifts!
