Step 1: Supplies
Gathering supplies is simple! With only 5 ingredients, you can make these soaps in no time.
*1 2lb block of soap (I just shea butter)
*1 snowflake silicone mold (i got mine from Amazon)
*Blue soap dye
*Microwaveable mixing bowl
Step 2: Cut Soap
Before microwaving, you'll want to cut the soap in about 1 inch pieces or small cubes. About 3/4 of the entire block made 6 full snowflakes. Add to the bowl.
Step 3: Microwave
Microwave the soap on high for 30 seconds until soap is smooth and not chunky (keep microwaving in 10 second intervals until right consistency).
Step 4: Add Ingredients
Add the glitter (desired amount), a few drops of blue dye, peppermint oil until mixed thoroughly. I added some extra glitter at the end to make mine more sparkly!
Step 5: Fill Molds
After everything is fully mixed together, fill molds. Note: if you wait too long to pour it, the soap can get chunky, its better to work with it when it's warm. If it does clump up a little, just simiply microwave it for a few more seconds. Let sit at least 40 minutes at room temperature or until fully cooled down.
Step 6: Pop Out of Molds
Pop the snowflakes out of the molds and put in gift bags! Enjoy your awesome soaps!
