How to use the melt & pour soap base

How to use the Melt and Pour soap base
Melt: Determine amount of soap base needed for your project. Cut the soap  into small pieces and 
place in a microwave safe container . Heat on a low setting using 30 second intervals. Stir between
intervals until liquid. Soap can also be melted using a double boiler if that is your preference.
***Handle hot soap carefully as it may burn the skin.

Mold: Stir in cosmetic safe color, cosmetic grade fragrance oil or essential oil, and any skin safe additives. Pour into your mold of choice. Spritz soap surface with alcohol to remove any bubbles.
Allow to cool until soap hardens.
Upon cooling soap should pop out of mold easily. If you are having trouble with the soap releasing, place in the fridge for a few minutes to contract the soap.

You may use your soap as soon as it cools down & releases from the mold.
