How to make your soap bar:
1. Simply open the packaging, safely cut the soap base into smaller cubes - doing this will make the soap easier to handle and melt.
2. Gradually heat the soap base in a Double Boiler ensuring that the soap melts evenly and does not boil and burn. If you are melting in a microwave please be careful and keep an eye on the soap as it can bubble over the container - it is advisable to use the lowest power setting (not defrost).
3. Mix in any Essential Oils, Fragrances, Colours, Botanicals and/or Additives to achieve the aroma and colour preferred - simply add to the melted soap base and mix gently ensuring that any fragrance you have added is evenly distributed throughout the soap base.
4. Working quickly, pour your soap base into your soap mould. Any small bubbles that may form on the surface of the soap during setting can be smoothed with rubbing alcohol. While still pliable you can add dried botanicals to the surface of the soap, by gently pressing them into the top of the soap if you wish.
5. Once your soaps have set and fully hardened simply remove from the moulds. We recommend always wrapping your soap bars immediately after releasing from the moulds to protect and preserve the soap.
