Fall in love with these easy to make and affordable 4 ounce round soap bars.

They’re perfect as soap stocking stuffers, teacher appreciation gifts and more.

Bonus? They are super easy to make and don’t take a lot of time.

As a busy mom, I appreciate this.

SUPPLIES |

Snowflake Soap Mold (I use Amazon or Brambleberry for my soaping adventures).

1 pound Clear Melt and Pour Soap (local craft store, Amazon or Brambleberry)

White pigment (I used white super pearly colorblock from Brambleberry)

Blue soap dye ( I used turquoise liquid soap dye from my local craft store)

2 Glass Measuring Cups (I use a 1 cup size for the white dye and a 8 cup for the blue)

Soap Cutter or Sharp Knife

Plate to cut soap on

Microwave

70+ proof Isopropyl Alcohol in fine mist sprayer

1 ounce Essential or Fragrance Oil of your choice

Pipettes

Teaspoon


SNOWFLAKE SOAP DIY RECIPE |

Part I

  1. Grab your clean soap mold and lay it on a flat surface.

  2. Spray alcohol in each of the 4 mold trays.

  3. Cut up 2 ounces of soap into 1x1 cubes and place into microwave-safe measuring cups

  4. Melt soap in 10 second increments. Watch the soap. You do not want it to boil.

  5. Remove melted soap from microwave and add white pigment. Stir until well blended.

  6. Add 10 drops of fragrance and stir.

  7. Pour .5 ounces of white soap blend into the bottom of each snowflake mold. (If you need to make more white soap and add, do it now).

  8. Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles.

  9. Allow to sit until you can touch the soap without your finger submerging into the blend.

Part II

  1. Cut the remaining soap into cubes and microwave in 20 second bursts (again, watch that it does not burn) using the second glass measuring cup.

  2. Once soap has melted, add liquid blue dye (or whatever color you have chosen) into the melted blend to your comfort level with the color. I use about 5 drops.

  3. Stir.

  4. Add 1 teaspoon of fragrance.

  5. Stir.

  6. Spray the white portion of the soap with alcohol (this is a very essential step) (do not miss the step).

  7. Pour the blue soap over the existing white base that is now somewhat hardened in the molds.

  8. Spray the tops of the soap (blue) with alcohol to remove any air bubbles.

  9. Allow the molds to harden completely. I let mine sit overnight.

Part III

  1. Flip the molds over once totally hardened so that you are looking at the snowflake.

  2. Use your fingers to loosen the sides of the mold.

  3. Press down on the center of the snowflake to pop that soaps out.

  4. Wrap in saran wrap (glycerin soaps like to sweat if not wrapped).
