Today I was making Christmas gifts for family. I have always loved making glycerin soaps and I had been looking forward to making these today. I purchase my glycerin at Michael's craft store. I have found a recipe to make my own glycerin.....someday I will do this. But for now, the block glycerin works just fine. In addition to the glycerin, I had some color and essential oil to add.
I made several colors and three different scents. I made Wakey Soap and Sleepy Soap. The Wakey Soaps were made with either peppermint scent or orange scent. The Sleepy Soap was made with lavender.
Here is how I did them:
|Melt the soap base. Microwave or double boiler.|
|Add color and fragrance. I used between 3 to 5 drops of color, mixing the colors as needed. 6 drops of fragrance for 4 melted cubes of soap base.|
|Normally you would pour the melted soap into a mold. I have very little patience for the molds, I like my rocks. Let the soap cool a bit, until its cool enough to handle. Then, take a small handful and roll between palms to make a ball.|
|That's it! Soap rocks.|
I love these soap rocks, they are so easy to use. Easy to roll through the hands when using. A good size for little hands!
