Directions: 

  1. Cut about 2 ounces of clear soap into small chunks and heat it in the microwave. Heat it for 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Once the soap is melted, you’re in good shape.
  2. Add pink colorant to the soap and the pink glitter. Stir well.
  3. Pour some of the soap into the chocolate mold. It will use about 2 ounces if you use one similar to what I used.
  4. In about 10 minutes, carefully remove the new flower soaps from the mold.
  5. Cut your white melt and pour soap into small chunks and heat it up in the microwave. Heat for 25 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Once the soap is melted, you’re in good shape.
  6. Add pink colorant and pink glitter to the soap. Stir well.
  7. Add 3ml – 5ml of your favorite fragrance to the soap and stir until it’s all combined.
  8. Add 1/2 tsp of olive oil. Stir well.
  9. Carefully pour the pink soap into your soap loaf mold.
  10. Spray with rubbing alcohol.
  11. Set it aside for about 10 minutes.
  12. Cut your clear melt and pour soap into small chunks and heat it up in the microwave. Heat for 25 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Once the soap is melted, you’re in good shape.
  13. Add the yellow colorant to the soap and the yellow glitter. Stir well.
  14. Add 3ml – 5ml of your favorite fragrance oil to the soap. Stir until it’s all combined
  15. Add 1/2 tsp of olive oil. Stir well.
  16. Make sure the pink soap has a thick skin on it. You can check that by gently touching the top of the soap. If your finger goes through, it’s too warm.
  17. Check the temperature of your yellow soap. It should be around 145 degrees. If it’s warmer, wait until it cools.
  18. Once the yellow soap is 145 degrees, spray the top of the pink soap with rubbing alcohol.
  19. Carefully pour the yellow soap over the pink soap. Spray the top with rubbing alcohol.
  20. In about 10 – 15 minutes, check to see if the yellow soap has a thick skin. If it does, carefully place the flowers on top. Note: You may need to heat up a little leftover soap and use it to “glue” the flowers. A Q-tip makes a great applicator.
  21. Leave the soap to set for 6 hours to overnight. Unmold, cut and enjoy!
