This peppermint soap recipe is made with a melt and pour soap base. Super easy.
*goats milk or shea butter soap base
*red soap colorant (optional)
How to Make:
Melt 1 pound of soap base at a time. I like to use a double boiler method with a large pyrex measuring cup. You can also melt the soap in the microwave by stirring every 30 seconds.
- Add 15-20 drops peppermint essential oil into melted soap; stir well.
- Pour soap into molds. Add a few drops of red soap colorant; use a toothpick or stirrer to gently mix the color with melted soap. Allow soap to harden for at least 2 hours or place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Tip: sometimes I have trouble releasing the soap from plastic molds, I like to lightly grease the mold with coconut oil beforehand.
wrap the soap with wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper. Embellish with ribbon, candy canes, and fresh greenery.
