  • 5 oz. Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • About 1/16 tsp. Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter
  • 3 mL Jade Fragrance Oil
  • Shamrock Green Mica
  • Lavender Mica
  • Caribbean Blue Mica
  • Buttercup Mica
  • Red Mica
  • Rose Gold Mica
  • Super Pearly White Mica
  • .15 CC Scoop (for measuring colorant)

  1. Chop 5 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into small even cubes. Place them in a small heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 10-20 second bursts. Because you’re working with such a small amount of soap, be careful to not burn it.
  2. Using the .15 CC Mini Scoops, add 2-4 scoops of mica into the melted soap. Some colorants require a little more to get a saturated color, so add 2 scoops at first and add more from there if you like. Use a spoon to mix it in. Because it’s not mixed with alcohol it will be a little clumpy at first, but will disperse into the soap with a little extra stirring.
  3. Add 3 mL of the Jade Fragrance Oil into the soap. Use a spoon to mix in.
  4. Add about 1/16th tsp. of Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter and stir in. Feel free to add more glitter if you’d like.
  5. Pour the soap into each cavity of the mold. It’s best to pour the soap when it’s around 125 ° F or the glitter may sink to the bottom. After each pour, spritz the top of the soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to disperse any bubbles.
  6. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden in the mold. This will take about an hour. Remove each gem from the mold. Repeat the process with a different color. Keep repeating the process until you’ve made a variety of colors to place into your gift box. The variety of colors is completely up to you!
  7. Once you’ve made all the soaps you want, print the “You’re a Real Gem” label on label paper and apply to your box. These gem soaps would also look great in a plastic bag tied with a ribbon. The labels could easily be made into hang tags for bags.
