Q & E Floral Melt and Pour Soaps

These delicious Chrysanthmum Soaps are quick and easy to create, and make perfect gifts.  I have added a little sparkle on top and used two different techniques to make, your giftee's will think it took you ages!  Use them to decorate the bathroom, gift or sell.

I used Sunflower Fragrance in these soaps, but Jasmine Absolute 3% in Jojoba or Cactus Flower Fragrance  are also beautifully floral but not cloying.

Instructions Method One:   

Melt and Pour Floral Soap Easy DIY Recipe 

 Dice the white soap base and place into a microwave safe jug and set aside
Melt the small piece of clear soap in a small microwave safe jug in 5 - 10 second bursts until liquid - avoid boiling
Add sufficient liquid colour (I used Deep Blue Liquid Pigment Dispersion) to make a deep shade
Using a pipette with the tip cut off, squirt the coloured soap in a haphazard manner over the inside of the mould cavity
While this is setting up, melt the white soap base in 30 second to 1 minute bursts until liquid
Add sufficient Deep Blue Liquid Pigment Dispersion to make a pastel blue shade
Now add fragrance and stir well to combine (1% = 2g/ml = 40 drops)
Spray the dark blue soap in the 2 cavities with Isopropyl Alcohol
Now fill the mould cavities with the pastel blue and give a quick spritz to eliminate bubbles.
Allow to set up completely, un-mould and wrap or store in an air tight jar
