Mother’s Day is coming right up (Sunday, May 11th). It’s never to early to shower the woman who gave you life with gifts galore.
We’ve designed some easy soap, lotion and lip balm projects around the flavor fragrance Passionfruit Rose. It’s an edible fragrance oil so it can be used in all manner of products, not just soap and lotions.
A big shout out to the Otionites who spearheaded the fun creativity of this project.
Step One: Melt 2 ounces of clear melt and pour. Color it with one drop of Emerald Green Labcolor (or any green you have). Draw up the melted green soap into a dropper. Carefully dropper the melted soap into the vines on the soap mold.
Step Two: Repeat step one with a yellow, red or any rose color you’d like. Dropper the melted soap into the rose. If you are using clear labcolors, the bubbles will show through the front of the rose so be sure to spritz away any bubbles that form with rubbing alcohol.
Step Five: Spritz the vines and roses with alcohol to help adhesion of the white melt and pour layer.
Step Six: Slowly pour the melted, scented white melt and pour into the mold. Spritz the back of the soap, once poured, with alcohol to get rid of any pesky lingering bubbles.
Hints for getting layers to stick:
Fresh soap is best
Use the same brand of clear melt and pour as white melt and pour
Alcohol between layers helps adhesion
Pouring layers quickly helps adhesion
