My three girls had a great time helping and wanted to come up with some fun Valentine’s Soap for their friends. So we made some pink heart soaps that they scented with peppermint oil and dyed pink using some drops of red soap colorant which we bought at Michael’s.
We poured the pink soap into a rubber heart mold and let them harden. Then we melted our white soap base and poured it into our rectangle soap molds. When that soap had hardened we sprayed it with rubbing alcohol and added another thin layer of white soap and then placed a pink soap heart in it and let it harden completely.
Then we wrapped them up and tied them with a colorful bow so that we could give them away.
We also experimented with some different flavors of soap. I LOVE citrusy and FRESH scents. So we thought it would be fun to add some Lemon essential oil along with some fresh lemon zest to our soaps. YUMMO!
We did the same with Lime. But I did not have a lime oil so I used doTerra’s Citrus Bliss oil…which is awesome, and then added some fresh lime zest to the soap base. I imagine these soaps will have to be used fairly quickly so that it stays as fresh as possible.
Shannon, one of my readers, left a comment about Lavender Lemonade on my Lavender Soap post. Lavender Lemonade!! I have not heard of that. But I am dying to try it. It will be the next one I try. Sounds amazing right?
But we did make a Pink Lemonade Soap by simple creating a double layer soap. Pour the first layer and let it harden completely. Then add a second layer by spritzing the top (where you will add the layer) with rubbing alcohol and then pouring your second color on. We added lemon essential oil and some lemon zest in the white layer.
