Hello Wine Lovers,

I bet you didn’t know Bulk Apothecary carries many different wine fragrance oils. Well, we do and they all smell terrific! Just trying to figure out which scent to use in this recipe was a pretty difficult decision! Grab yourself your favorite glass and let’s get started with this soap bar wine recipe!

Pink Moscato Soap Bar Recipe

 

Ingredients:

Oatmeal and Shea Butter Stephenson Melt and Pour Soap Base– 2lbs

Shea Butter Stephenson Melt and Pour Soap Base– ½ cup melted

Moscato Fragrance Oil

Shimmer Raspberry Melt and Pour Soap Color Block– ¼ block

Guest Rectangle Tray Soap Mold

Silver Glitter (or any you have on hand)

Step 1

Melt ½ cup of Shea Butter Stephenson Melt and Pour Soap Base (simply cut off a chunk of the soap base and add more if needed). Slowly pour lines, swirls or designs, leaving open space in the guest rectangle tray soap mold. Sprinkle or spoon in the empty spaces with small amounts of glitter.

Step 2

Cut and melt 2 lbs of Oatmeal and Shea Butter Stephenson Melt and Pour Soap Base. You can use the stove top or microwave, whichever works best for you. Once completely melted add ¼ block of Shimmer Raspberry Melt and Pour Soap Block and melt for an until 25-30 seconds. Stir until you achieve a pretty pink color. If you’d like a darker raspberry color, add another ¼ block. Either color will come out looking beautiful! Next, add 10 drops of the Moscato Fragrance Oil. Doesn’t it smell delightful? Pour on top of the soap mold tray and let harden.

 

Removing soap out of a plastic tray is sometimes tricky. It can be hit or miss! A great tip is putting the tray in the freezer for 10 minutes before removing, next firmly push on the tray. The soap will pop right out. Slice into 10 rectangular shape bars. These bars are a perfect little Valentine’s Day gift for your friends and loved ones. Wrap in clear cellophane or burlap and tie with a big white, pink or silver bow. You’ll be a hit at your next wine night! Enjoy!

  1. I’d like to make a merlot scented soap. Do you have a recipe for that??

  2. It seems like the melt and pour soaps never really get firm and always feel wet. Am I doing something wrong? Would it be better for me to make cold and / or hot process soaps ? Thanks for any help you can offer

    • This is a common occurrence with melt and pour soap bases (especially in humid conditions) due to their high glycerin content. You can try the following to minimize the effect:

      1. Allow the soap to dry naturally at room temperature.
      2. Use a fan over the soap when it is removed from the mold.
      3. Try using a dehumidifier to keep you work space dry.
      4. You can tightly wrap the bars of soap in plastic wrap, then place in an air tight container with rice to remove excess moisture.
      5. You can use one of the low sweat melt and pour soap bases, which we have in white or clear.
