How To:

Melt the soap base either in a microwave at ten second intervals, or in a double boiler.

When all the soap is melted, then pour in the orange zest and your scent of choice and stir.

    1. It is usually a large container with white, unscented soap that has shea butter as an ingredient. It is called a base because you can melt parts of that large block of soap, add other ingredients of your choice like color and dry flowers or salt etc. to personalize your soap. Michaels or other craft stores sell this soap base.

    1. You can use fragrances in place of essential oils, but you will need a lot less since fragrances are stronger.

  1. How much soap coloring would be required for recipe? Mica powders would suffice? Gathering materials for first try to create melt and pour soaps, so excited!

    1. Usually only a few drops will work, but you can experiment or find soap makers forums, that’s where you can get a ton of help on soap making. I am good at whipping up skin care butters, salves and lotions, but I’m not an expert at soap making 🙂
