Tips for Making Good Vibes Soap
One of the first steps to this recipe is cutting your soap into 1-inch cubes. This helps the soap melt more evenly. It’s easy to overheat soap, so we want to avoid big chunks of soap that will take longer to melt compared to smaller chunks in the same bowl.
You can melt soap on the stove using a double boiler, straight into a pot, or in a liquid measuring cup in the microwave. Using the stove will make it easier to control the temperature of your soap, but it takes longer. Using a microwave will be faster, but microwaves don’t heat things evenly. To melt the soap in the microwave, you’ll need to use 30-second intervals and stir between each interval.
You want your soap to melt but not bubble up. Soap that is boiling has been overheated. It will still function as a soap but will affect the look of your design. The soap bar will be harder and more brittle.
When first starting with melt and pour soap, I recommend melting it on the stove, so that you have more control over how it’s melting.
For this recipe, you’ll be creating soap embeds. Soap embeds are pre-made soaps made into shapes. You add these to your molds and then pour more soap over them. You’ll need to ensure your soap embeds are totally cooled before removing them from the mold. You’ll also need to spray the embeds with rubbing alcohol before pouring on the glycerin soap. Without the rubbing alcohol, the soap embeds and glycerin soap won’t bind together.
For these embeds, we’ll be cutting bars of soap we make into fun geometric shapes.
For this recipe, we are using different colors of mica powder. You can swap these colors out for any that you’d like. You can also use fewer or more colors depending on your preference.
When you add the mica powder to the soap, it will at first clump. You can prevent this by first dispersing the mica powder in a small amount of rubbing alcohol. You can also remove clumps by stirring.
Simply Earth glycerin soap will be cloudy and white in the packaging. However, once you melt it, it will become clear and will create vibrant semi-transparent soap when we add the mica powder.
Rubbing alcohol is an important ingredient for melt-and-pour soap. Spraying it over layers of soap will prevent air bubbles and help bind layers of soap together.
Reuse Melt & Pour Soap
If you end up with too much soap for your recipe, you can pour the extra soap into a soap mold. This can be remelted and used in later melt-and-pour soap recipes.
If you have too little soap, simply cut and melt more soap.
