Cutting up the melt and pour soap base

Add 750 grams (26.5 ounces) of your clear soap base to a large measuring glass.

3. Melt the soap base

Place the measuring glass in the microwave and let it run in thirty-second intervals until the soap base is all melted. Make sure to mix the soap base in between each thirty-second interval.

9. Finish the molds

Once you place the flowers inside all the soaps, finish filling the molds to the top with the rest of the soap mixture. Spray the molds with the alcohol spray as you go. 


Tip: another method of pouring the soap into the molds is first putting in the flowers and then pouring the soap mixture on top.
