The fragrance of love

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Romance is in the air again with Valentine's day approaching. Are you ready? This simple project is for those who want to give a special gift to a special person. Valentine's day soaps are fun and easy to make.

  Materials and supplies:

* Melt & Pour Soap Base (clear and white)
* Red soap colorant
* Scented oil
* Heart shaped cookie cutter
* Flat plastic dish
* Round plastic dish
* Glass containers for cooking or microwave

Melt the soap base in microwave or in the steam bath (making sure the soap does not come in contact with water). Add a few drops of red color and fragrance you want (I have chosen raspberry fruity smell), to get a pink hue. Pour some into a plastic container with a flat bottom. The layer should be approximately 5 mm thick. Let it cool. Add more red color in the rest of the soap base and pour over the first pink layer.

After about 15 minutes, while the soap is not completely hardened, remove it from the flat tray. Cut small heart using your cookie cutter, put them on the bottom of the small plastic containers and pour melted white soap. Let it cool well. Soap is ready for use after 24 hours of drying.

Wrap it in cellophane, add bows and sweet message for Valentine's Day.
