Homemade Holiday Soaps

Layered Loaf Soap

You'll need:

  • melt-and-pour soap base, white and clear (available at most craft stores)
  • loaf shaped mold
  • rubbing alcohol in a small spray bottle
  • red soap coloring drops (available at most craft stores)
  • essential oil -- scent of choice (optional)
  • fine soap glitter (optional)
  • large kitchen knife
Instructions:
  1. Step 1Gather your soap-making supplies.

  2. Step 2Break off small pieces of white soap and put in a microwave-safe container. Heat your melt-and-pour soap base in the microwave for 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until thoroughly melted. Don't overheat! Add scent and glitter (optional).

  3. Fill the bottom of a loaf-type mold as high as desired. (A silicone or plastic mold would be best, but my glass mold worked fine.)

  4. Step 4Let a filmy layer of soap build (approx. 5 min) and spritz with rubbing alcohol.

  5. Melt and pour a layer of contrasting soap. Again, let a filmy layer build and spritz with rubbing alcohol.

  6. Step 6Repeat making layers of your own choice
    of color, thickness, and fragrance.

  7. Step 7Once the mold is full, immediately grate contrasting soap with a cheese grater and sprinkle on top. Let cool and harden completely (approx. 45 min).

  8. Step 8Remove soap from loaf mold. You may have to run a knife around the edges to
    help loosen the soap.

  9. Step 9Use a large kitchen knife to cut the loaf into 'bars' of soap. The beautiful layers revealed make this step extra fun!

  10. Step 10Wrap using plastic wrap or cellophane for gift giving.
