Oatmeal Spice Painted Leaf Soap
Supplies needed to make your own homemade soap:
- Oatmeal Soap Base
- Spice Medley Fragrance Oil
- Metal Leaves
- Food Coloring Gel and Paintbrush
- Glass or Ceramic Bowl for Mixing
- Soap Mold (I used THESE brownie silicone trays)
INSTRUCTIONS:Cut your soap into cubes and melt slowly in a double boiler or very carefully in the microwave. If using the microwave, heat in increments of 10-30 seconds until the soap reaches a liquid state. Be very careful as the hot liquid can "pop" if you are not careful (just like a hot bowl of soup!).
As soon as you finish, carefully pour the melted soap into your molds. Note: I used an old ashtray as my mixing container because it was nearby. If this is your first time working with homemade soap, please use a container with a small "spout" so that pouring will be easier for you. A glass mixing bowl is perfect.
