 This is Bramble Berry's super Plumeria Melt & Pour Soap Loaf (which I just adore!) from a promotion running last year, we just had to share it here, as it's just so....well, perfect!

We have adjusted the recipe into metric, and the colours too to ones you can sub if you don't have lab colours (go with the Labcolours if you have them, though remember they will bleed), otherwise grab your Aussie Soap Supplies Liquid Brites for MP Soap!

Just a note, if you would like all the layers the same height, just do 290g for each layer :)

How to Make Perfect Plumeria Soap

What you'll need: 

Method

ONE: Cut Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into 2 cm chunks and melt in a heat safe container on 30 second bursts in the microwave until fully melted.

TWO: Add 2 heaping mini-scoops of White Pearl Mica to the melted soap base and mix well. Use Isopropyl Alcohol to disperse any mica bubbles that may pop up.

THREE: Add 10ml Plumeria Fragrance Oil and stir until incorporated. Split the soap base into two equal parts, each weighing 570g.

FOUR: To one 570g portion, add Brites for MP Hot Pink combo (or 3 mL Diluted Tropical Pink LabColor) and mix well.
To the second 570g portion, add Orange Brites for MP and/or some Citrus Orange Liquid Lake Colour (or 5 mL Diluted Tropical Orange LabColor and mix well.)

FIVE: For a super even look, I measured out the soap amounts for each layer. If you’d like a more uniform look, split the Orange and Pink colored soap bases into two portions, each weighing 290g. For a more organic look, no need to split the batches, just eyeball the layers.

SIX: Pour the first layer of Pink soap base into the mold, spray with alcohol and allow to harden.

SEVEN: While the layers are hardening, cut 290g White Melt and Pour Soap Base into 2 cm chunks and melt in a heat safe container on 30 second bursts in the microwave until fully melted. (or use the full 430g if you aren't going for even layers). Add 2 heaping mini-scoops of Super Pearly White Mica and 10ml Plumeria Fragrance Oil and mix well. Note: If you are having even coloured layers, weigh each to be exactly the same weight.

EIGHT: Spray the first pink layer with alcohol and pour the next orange layer. Spray again with alcohol and allow to fully harden.

NINE: Spray the orange layer with alcohol and pour the melted white soap base. Spray again with alcohol and allow to harden. Repeat with another orange layer next, and finish it off with a final pink layer.

TEN: Allow to harden for a few hours (mine sat overnight) then unmould, cut and enjoy! TIP: This soap looks AWESOME when cut with a Crinkle Cutter.
