What You’ll Need:
Two Broad Rectangle Heavy Duty Molds
32 oz. Stephenson Oatmeal and Shea Melt and Pour
10 oz. Stephenson Ultra Clear Soap Base
1 oz. Chamomile Bergamot Fragrance Oil
.5 oz. Chamomile Extract
Chamomile Herb, Egyptian
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in 8 oz. Spray Bottle
ONE: Place a pinch of the dried chamomile herb into each mold cavity. Feel free to add as much as you’d like.
TWO: Chop and melt 10 ounces of the Stephenson Ultra Clear Melt and Pour Base in the microwave using 15-20 second bursts. Once melted, pour a small amount of the soap into each cavity. Pour just enough to cover the chamomile herbs. After each pour, spritz each cavity with alcohol to help disperse bubbles. Set aside to cool and harden.
THREE: Chop and melt 32 ounces (the entire package) of the Stephenson Oatmeal and Shea Melt and Pour Base in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Once completely melted, add 1 ounce of the Chamomile Bergamot Fragrance Oil and use a spoon or spatula to completely stir in. Then, stir in .5 ounce of chamomile extract.
FOUR: Allow the soap to cool to 125 ° F or below so it doesn’t melt the bottom layer. Spritz each cavity lightly with 99% isopropyl alcohol so they layers adhere and pour the melted soap into each cavity until full.
FIVE: Immediately spritz each bar with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to fully cool and harden. Once you’re ready to unmold, pull gently on the sides of the mold cavities to break the airlock. Then, flip the mold over and press on the back of each cavity with the palm of your hand until the soap slides out. Wrap in plastic wrap to help prevent glycerin dew.
