ONE: Chop 5 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into small even cubes. Place them in a small heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 10-20 second bursts. Because you’re working with such a small amount of soap, be careful to not burn it.
THREE: Using the .15 CC Mini Scoops, add 2-4 scoops of mica into the melted soap. Some colorants require a little more to get a saturated color, so add 2 scoops at first and add more from there if you like. Use a spoon to mix it in. Because it’s not mixed with alcohol it will be a little clumpy at first, but will disperse into the soap with a little extra stirring.
FOUR: Add 3 mL of the Jade Fragrance Oil into the soap. Use a spoon to mix in.
FIVE: Add about 1/16th tsp. of Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter and stir in. Feel free to add more glitter if you’d like.
SIX: Pour the soap into each cavity of the mold. It’s best to pour the soap when it’s around 125 ° F or the glitter may sink to the bottom. After each pour, spritz the top of the soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to disperse any bubbles.
SEVEN: Allow the soap to fully cool and harden in the mold. This will take about an hour. Remove each gem from the mold. Repeat the process with a different color. Below is soap colored with Red Mica. Keep repeating the process until you’ve made a variety of colors to place into your gift box. The variety of colors is completely up to you!
EIGHT: Once you’ve made all the soaps you want, print the “You’re a Real Gem” label on label paper and apply to your box. These gem soaps would also look great in a plastic bag tied with a ribbon. The labels could easily be made into hang tags for bags.
