gloves, cut a small section of soap into approximately 1 inch cubes (enough for
one of the molds, approximately
3 oz). Be safe as soap is slippery. The melting temperature for
M&P soap is approximately 120°F. Allowing the soap to go over 150°F will
likely create bubbles and of course be difficult to handle. Melt in short
bursts of time (3-7 seconds, stirring in between) in the microwave and be sure
not to burn. If it burns (becomes very bubbly and may change colour) it will
then be unusable. Using your candy thermometer, check the temperature. Always
be safe when handling hot soap. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
2) Add a small amount of fragrance (1/2 teaspoon for each bar - or one capful for 1lb of soap). Stir slowly and thoroughly. Mixing too
vigorously may cause bubbles.
create your desired colour using the 3 pack of dye. You won't need much. Add slowly, 1 drop at a time to achieve desired colour. Just like with the fragrance oils, stir thorough but slowly to
avoid air bubbles.
pour into appropriate Chakra mold, spritz with isopropyl alcohol, wash tools
and repeat the process with the remaining molds.
for soaps to set completely and remove from molds. Once removed, add to airtight
container with Aroma Beads to absorb moisture or have the soap on drying racks
in a room with a dehumidifier. Any scenario where additional moisture can be avoided so that “sweating” doesn’t occur. Enjoy!
