DIY Soap: Second Try

The Christmas experiment with homemade herbal soaps proved very popular despite being incredibly basic. I decided to give it another go with better materials and commercial molds. Once again, off to the craft store!

These would be special little gift soaps for Valentine’s Day. The small purple heart has lavender essential oil and fragrance. The outer pink portion is goat milk base with rose scent. The idea is that as the bar is used, it slowly reveals the hidden inner heart and changes scent.

The mold was intended for cupcakes or cookies but it worked well for small decorative soaps. The craft store also happened to have little boxes that just fit the soap.

Final product packaged up and ready for giving. If I had had more time I would have painted or papered the little boxes.
