Soap fun!

To make soap, the following basics are needed:

Soap mould
Melt & Pour soap base (cubed is better as it melts more effectively)
Cosmetic fragrance - 1/2 drops per 100g base
Cosmetic colour - 1/2 drops per 100g base
Microwave/plastic jug/stirrer or spoon


  1. Firstly, measure out the soap base (100g of base for every 100ml approx).
  2. Melt the base at intervals of 30 seconds in the microwave - use the defrost button
  3. Make sure not to over melt the base. 
  4. When cooled but not yet hardened, add the fragrance , followed by the colour ~  drop by drop.
  5. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Pour into the moulds and allow to set. 
  7. That's it!                                  

 For this recipe, I am adding some pre-made soap cubes for an interesting effect.
