How Do You Make Simple Melt and Pour Soap?
There’s no doubt, this is the easiest way to make soap.
The base of every melt and pour soap recipe is a premade soap base.
Begin by cutting your base material into small cubes.
Next, melt it either in a double boiler on the stovetop or in the microwave.
Once it is liquid, stir in your essential oils, herbs, colors or whatever else makes the soap special.
After this, pour your soap base into silicone soap molds.
Then, allow your soap to set for about 45 minutes.
You’re finished when the soap has hardened. It’s so quick! There’s no long curing process to track or need to flip them over for a few days. It only takes one hour until these soaps are done and ready for use.
I also suggest wrapping a few pieces in parchment paper and securing with ribbon. Save these to share as thoughtful handmade gifts throughout the year.
It’s so easy to get the hang of the melt and pour technique. These are great recipes for beginners!
