Melt and Pour Soap

Melt and pour soap is soap that has been prepared so that it melts easily in the microwave or in a double boiler.  After you melt the soap, simply stir in your additives. Pour the soap into molds and let it harden. After it hardens, remove it from your mold and slice it into smaller bars or package it as is. Here is a recipe for soap made with a melt and pour base.

Basic Scented Soap
You will need:

  • 1/2 lb. of melt and pour soap
  • 1/2 tsp. fragrance oil or essential oil.

Break the soap up into chunks. Put the soap into a double boiler. Gently heat on low until melted. Stir in the fragrance oil or essential oil. Stir well to blend. Pour into a soap mold. Let harden. Remove from mold.
