Into each colored melted soap bowl, add a few drops of the fragrances included. The kit has two complimentary scents- grapefruit and bergamot.

5. Pour melted soaps into the mold

Slowly pour each color into the mold. This is called the melt and pour method. The soap will start to harden quickly, so you might need to remelt the soap if needed.

6. Let the soap set for a few hours

Gently swirl and mix the soap colors and then let the soap set. Each soap will take a few hours to harden. Once the soap has set nicely, you will be able to easily pop it out of the mold.

7. Melt, Pour and Repeat

Since there are only two molds included in the kit, you will need to wait to make more soap bars. Once the first two soap bars have set, melt, pour and repeat till you use up all of the soap included. We were able to make 3 soaps from this kit and loved the pink and yellow colors.

We tried two soap kits for beginners, and there were two different kinds of soap bars- opaque and clear. Each of these soaps show the mica color powder differently and it is so much fun experimenting.
