I was recently inspired to make my own herbal soaps after reading an herbal mystery. I love good smelling soap and thought it would be fun to try to make my own.
Melt and Pour Soap (I found mine at Michaels for around $10.00)
Herbs (I used Rosemary, Mint, and Basil.)
Essential Oil (I used lemon because I already had it.)
Molds (I used antique jars because I liked the pattern at the bottom and small plastic containers.)
1. Melt the soap in the microwave. I used six squares of soap at a time and it took 50 seconds to melt.
5. Allow to cool completely and then remove soap from containers. I found that the plastic containers worked best. I had to run a knife along the sides of the glass containers to get the soap to release. You can see below that the sides of some are rough.
