ONE: Chop and melt 14 ounces of the Shaving Melt and Pour Base in the microwave using 20 second bursts. Once melted, add 4 mL of the Bramble Berry’s Made to Measure Type Fragrance Oil and mix in thoroughly.

TWO: Once the melted soap is below 125° F, add the Lagoon Green Jojoba beads and stir. Waiting until the soap has cooled helps prevent the jojoba beads from melting in the base and helps them suspend evenly throughout the mixture. Mix in thoroughly.TWO

THREE: Pour the soap into each cavity evenly. After each pour, spritz the top with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of air bubbles. Set aside and allow the soap to cool and harden.

FOUR: While the soap hardens, mix 1 tablespoon of pumice into 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol. Doing so helps prevent clumps. Set aside.

FIVE: Chop and melt 10 ounces of White Melt and Pour Base in the microwave using 15-20 second bursts. Add one tablespoon of poppy seeds and all of the pumice mixture. Stir in thoroughly. Add 4 mL of the Bramble Berry’s Made to Measure Type Fragrance Oil to the melted soap and stir to thoroughly mix in.

FOURSIX: Test the bottom layer. It should be firm enough to support a layer of soap on top. If not, allow it to cool and harden longer. If it is firm enough and the melted soap is 125° F or below, spritz the bottom layer with rubbing alcohol and pour the white soap into each cavity. Spritz the top with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any bubbles. Allow to fully cool and harden. Remove from the mold, and wrap in plastic wrap to help prevent glycerin dew. Learn more about storing handmade products here.
