This is an easy, fun soap to make for yourself or the one you love.
You will need:
  • A mould – I used a silicone one
  • Clear Glycerine soap base – M and P. The amount is determined by how many you will make and the size of your moulds
  • Opaque soap base - M and P
  • Red colouring
  • Glitter
  • Spraying alcohol
  • Fragrance oil – I used a fruity blend of Orange and Neroli
  • Jugs, stirrers and or spoons, heart shaped cookie cutter
  • Melt your opaque soap base in a jug in the microwave in short bursts, making sure it is not too hot
  • Add your red colouring to the melted soap and pour into the mould to set
  • Once the soap is hard (it may still be a little warm) remove it from the mould and cut out the hearts

  • Melt the clear M&P and wait for it to cool slightly. If it is too hot you will melt the hearts when you pour it into the mould
  • Add your fragrance oil and stir, avoiding making bubbles (you can use 1-2% of your soap weight) i.e. if you have a 100g of soap you will use about 1-2ml/g of fragrance
  • Pour some clear soap base into your mould and then spritz your heart with alcohol and place it into the soap you have just poured
  • Spritz the whole soap again and then gently pour the rest of the clear soap into your mould making sure you do not pour onto the hearts and also trying not to make too many bubbles
  • Spritz the soap again and then wait for the soap to harden – approximately 30 – 40 minutes, depending on how large the soap is
