How to Make a Cotton Candy Soap Bar
Makes 6 soap bars
- 1 pound melt and pour soap base
- 15 drops grapefruit essential oil
- 15 drops ylang ylang essential oil
- 5 drops french vanilla essential oil
- ¼ tsp pink mica powder
- ¼ tsp bright blue mica powder
- Oval soap mold
- 2 – 4 cup microwave safe measuring cups
- 2 wooden craft sticks for stirring
- Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol (optional)
Cut the soap base into 1 inch squares and add to one of the measuring cups.
Heat on high for 30 seconds, then remove and stir well. Heat in additional 10 second intervals, stirring between each heating session, until the soap base is fully melted.
Allow the soap base to sit for a few minutes to cool down, then add the essential oils and stir well to fully combine the scent.
Pour half of the mixture into the second measuring cup.
Add blue mica to one of the cups of melted soap base, the pink mica to the other. Stir very well to combine the color.
Pour a small amount of one color into the soap mold, only covering a portion of the bottom of the mold cavities.
Wait a minute or so to allow it to set, then pour some of the other color.
Alternate the colors until you have filled each of the mold cavities. You may spray with rubbing alcohol here and there to help reduce bubbles, and allow the layers to better stick together, then also after the final pour.
For an extra special touch, you can even top your Cotton Candy Soap with sprinkles or other decorations.
NOTE: You may need to reheat the soap base for 5-10 seconds a time or two between pouring.
Allow soap to set undisturbed for 2-3 hours, then unmold.
