Jessica, a student in New Zealand just wrote me to ask how to make a chocolate scrubby soap. I thought I would post my suggestions for making a chocolatey scrubby confetion delight here for everyone to enjoy!
Chocolate Exfoliant soap using melt and pour is super easy, fun to make and smells amazing. It will lather a very light brown due to the discoloring nature of the fragrance.
I’d recommend these ingredients:
If you want to have a scrubby soap that actually suspends the exfoliants, you’ll be stirring for a bit. Melt and Pour soap gets more viscous as it starts to set up. If you add your exfoliant and continually stir for 3 to 5 minutes, the soap should suspend the scrubby additives more easily.
Follow basic melt and pour instructions for melting the soap, adding the fragrance and pouring into the mold and you’re done: http://www.teachsoap.com/mp.html
The entire project should take 15 minutes, including clean up.
The Chocolate soap pictured is sold by The Fragrant Lemon Peel, an at-home, spa party business. The photograph makes me drool.
