Hi, friends! It’s Katie here again.I’ve been dying to make soap on a rope since I spotted some BEAUTIFUL soaps at a farmers market recently. When I got home that day I was full of inspiration, so I quickly went to work at developing my own method. I knew I wanted them to be neutral in color, smell amazing (duh, it’s soap), and easy to make with things around the house. Here’s what I came up with:
-glycerin melt and pour soap base (also available at most craft stores)
-essential oils—I used lemon, lavender, rose, and mint
-household containers in any shape or size you’d like
To begin, cut your soap base into cubes. DO NOT swing your knife around like a sword. Okay, okay… do it. Just be careful! I think it’s impossible for me not to pretend to be a samurai while holding a large knife. It’s one of those things.
Now it’s time to figure out how much soap base to melt. A little bit of this melt and pour base goes farther than you would imagine. For the ice cream bucket I used about four or five 2″ x 2″ cubes for a pint size container. Once you figure out how much you’d like to use, melt it in the microwave or use the double broiler method on the stove.
