Ingredients:

1/2lb /220 g. Clear and opaque white melt and pour soap bases

Soap colorants

Essential oils of your choice

Silicone mold

Knife

Directions:

The first step is to make several solid colored soaps. Cut ¼ of both soap bases into small chunks and place into a microwavable glass. Microwave for 40-60 seconds until completely melted. If you want to add fragrance, add the essential oil to the melted base. Divide the melted soap evenly into small mixing cups – 5 or 6, as you wish. Add colors and stir. Let the colorful soaps harden completely.

Once the colorful soaps are set, take them out of the plastic cups. Slice them into thin slices and small shards or if you prefer – slice them into various shapes and sizes. Set aside.

Prepare your mold. Mix the colorful pieces randomly and place them in the cavity. Optionally, you can sprinkle some cosmetic glitter at the bottom of each cavity for greater effect.
