These beautiful, sparkly little soaps are SO easy! And just perfect for the season! Bulk Apothecary has so many fun soap molds to choose from (you may have a hard time deciding) and this one didn’t disappoint. The detail came out perfectly and the sparkle color block made making an impressive holiday soap a piece of cake!
Just a few ingredients, a few minutes of prep work and you’ll have gorgeous guest soaps just in time for Thanksgiving!
1 lb. Goat Milk MP Soap Base, cubed
If you haven’t tried one of the shimmer color blocks yet, DO IT! They are gorgeous! Use just a piece of it for a subtle hint of color and sparkle, or toss in the whole block for a seriously sparkly effect!
I, of course, used the whole block 🙂
Place the soap base and the color block into a microwave-safe bowl or spouted measuring cup. When pouring into a soap mold, a bowl or measuring cup with a spout really is really helpful.
In the microwave, heat the soap base and color using short bursts and stirring in between until evenly melted.
Grab your soap mold. Here’s a close up of the cornucopia detail. It really is a pretty mold!
Remove the liquid mixture from the microwave and stir to continue blending the color throughout the soap.
Add in the fragrance oil and stir well to combine. I used 1 teaspoon of the Cinnamon Orange Clove fragrance oil. It’s a nice fall-winter fragrance: warm and festive.
Carefully pour the soap mixture into the soap molds. This mold has 3 cavities. I kept the recipe small to accommodate this mold, but you can easily double the batch and use the mold twice.
Allow the soaps to cool and harden completely prior to unmolding. This will take a few hours.
Once ready, flip the mold over.
Apply firm, even pressure to the border of each soap and then to the center to release each block from the mold. If you’re having trouble releasing the soap, pop the tray in the freezer for a few minutes and try again.
And so perfect for this time of year! Place them in your bathrooms, make some for gifts, or even give them away as favors if you’re hosting Thanksgiving!
