Orange Creamsicle Soap Ingredients:
Orange Creamsicle Soap Mise en Place:
Orange Creamsicle Soap Directions:
• Cut ice cube sized pieces off your block of soap and place in a clear glass measuring cup. Note: how much soap base you need really depends on the size of your soap mold. This soap mold makes 5 oz bars of soap x 4 = 20 oz. That is one and a quarter cups. If your molds make 3 ounce bars x 4 = 12 ounces, or ¾ cup. Know your mold soap size to measure out an accurate amount of soap base you will need to melt.
• Microwave your soap on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
• Mix in your orange essential oil and orange soap colorant. (Remember, you can always add more for a deeper scent or richer color.)
• Using a cheese grater, zest the orange. Place a small amount (a pinch) of the orange zest into each soap mold.
• Add the remaining orange zest to your liquid soap.
• Pour the melted soap into your molds.
• Spray lightly with rubbing alcohol to prevent air bubbles.
• Place your mold in your freezer for 45 minutes.
• Once your Orange Creamsicle soap is hardened, pull on the sides of the molds to release the soap from the sides, and press up on the bottom gently to remove soaps.
• If presenting as gifts, you can tie with a ribbon, wrap with cellophane and a ribbon, etc.
• These are perfect for display, gift giving, or to set in a linen closet as well as everyday use!
