Links may be commissioned.
- 1.25 lbs Goats Milk melt and pour soap base
- 3 – 1”x1” cubes of Clear Glycerin melt and pour soap base
- ⅛ tsp Rose Gold Mica
- ⅛ tsp Golden Mica
- 8 dried rose buds
- 40-50 drops rose essential oil
- Small loaf bar soap mold
- Straight soap cutter – You can also use a chef’s knife
- 2 – 4 cup microwave safe measuring cups
- 2 wooden craft sticks for stirring
- Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol
- Cut goats milk soap base into 1”x1” cubes and place half of it into a measuring cup.
- Heat goats milk soap base in microwave on high for 30 seconds, remove and stir well. Heat in additional 10 second increments, stirring between, until completely melted.
- Let cool off for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Add half the Rose Gold Mica and half the rose essential oil. Stir until well combined and pour into the soap mold.
5. Spray with rubbing alcohol to get rid of bubbles.
6. Let soap set for about 10-15 minutes.
7. Place glycerin soap base into measuring cup and heat in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well.
8. Add Golden Mica and stir well.
9. Spray the set layer of soap in mold with rubbing alcohol again to allow the two colors to bond together.
10. Slowly pour Golden soap base over first layer of soap in soap mold. Spray with rubbing alcohol to reduce bubbles.
11. Place remaining half of goats milk soap base into a measuring cup.
12. Heat in microwave on high for 30 seconds, remove and stir well. Heat for additional 10 second increments, stirring between, until completely melted.
13. Let cool off for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
14. Add remaining half of the Rose Gold Mica and rose essential oil. Stir well.
15. Spray the Golden layer of soap in mold with rubbing alcohol again to allow the two colors to bond together.
16. Pour Rose Gold soap base into soap mold. Spray with rubbing alcohol to get rid of bubbles.
17. Let set for a few minutes until you get a layer on the top.
18. Poke a craft stick down the middle of soap filled mold, and add rose buds. This will allow the rose buds to adhere in the soap without sinking, and also gives the textured look in the center of the soap.
Some tiny petals may fall off some of the rose buds. This is fine. Arrange the petals around the rose buds in the soap for added beauty. If this doesn’t happen, consider peeling a couple of layers of petals off an extra rose bud and scattering those.
19. Allow soap to fully set overnight.
20. Carefully remove soap from mold, and cut in between every two rose buds.
Congrats! You have a really luxe and high end looking Golden Rose handmade soap that you made yourself. This should net you 4 bars of soap that are between 5- 6 oz. That’s a hefty bar of soap! Let them dry out in a cool, dry place to harden and cure. This step is completely optional, but makes for a better, longer lasting bar of soap.
