I have NEVER made soap before but it has always been on my bucket list! I have a friend who creates the prettiest, smoothest, good smellingest. Maybe I made that last word up. But you get the point.
And while this is no where near her amazing soaps, it was still fun to make and turned out cute!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to recreate these soaps!
– clear melt & pour soap block
– white melt & pour soap block
– edible stars (I used gold)
– edible glitter (or the glitter in the soap section)
– soap colorant
– silicone unicorn mold
-essential oil (Optional)
-mica powder (optional)
Small spoon scoops
First things first, cut some of your clear soap base into 1 inch cubes. You’ll need about 1 cup.
Put it in a microwaveable bowl for 30 seconds, then stir the clumps out with a popsicle stick. Then pour into your unicorn mold.
Next add your stars and glitter.
Now you’ll need to melt some more clear soap. Once melted, add your colorant of choice, I used purple.
Once your clear layer is set, spray it with rubbing alcohol. This helps bond the layers together.
Put something under one side of your mold to tilt it. Pour your colored soap into the bottom half of your unicorn.
While that layer is setting, melt more clear soap. Then you can use another color of colorant, or use a mica powder. I didn’t have a pink colorant like I wanted, so I used a pink mica powder which turned out nicely.
Once the purple layer has set, put your mold back down flat. Spray with alcohol and pour in your pink soap.
Next, melt your white soap. Approximately 1 cup is needed.
After your white is melted, add in your essential oil, if you want a fragrance. I used several drops of lavender. Mix well and pour on top, then let it set up.
Once set it up, pop out your soap from the silicone mold, and wa-la! You have pretty little soaps for your unicorn lovers. They make great gifts or just something fun for at home!
I had too much purple left, so I ended up making these little purple gems as well!
The possibilities are endless. And this was incredibly simple. I look forward to making more in the future, and getting more elaborate recipes like my friend Jamie!!
