Sweating may occur if so let soap set out to "cure" for up to a week. Once sweating is gone, wrapping will not be necessary.
Directions: Carefully slice soap base into small 1" pieces and place in microwave-safe container. Heat on low at 30-second intervals. Stir between intervals until liquid. Handle hot soap carefully as it may burn the skin. Soap can also be melted in a double boiler, which is the preferred method to get an even melt.
Depending on how strong you like your scented soap to be – a general rule of thumb or guideline is roughly 1 teaspoon (or more) per pound of soap. If using essential oils or fragrance oils – the strength of the scents vary from oil to oil. Try starting with 1 teaspoon per pound of soap base and work your way up.
Note: If the essential oil or fragrance oil has a colour to it – may give a slight colour or hue to the soap.
MOLD: Stir in your desired colour, & scent, and skin safe additives. Pour into a mold. We recommend not filling the mold to the top for easier release. Spritz soap surface with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. Let cool until hard, solidified
CAUTION: Melted soap is hot! For ages 15 and older

1 pound (0.45 kg) - 1/2 kilogram approx Goats milk is said to have skin softening properties as well as being very soothing. Our goat's milk soap is made with real liquid goats milk. It has a delicate creamy lather. The base has a creamy custard colour made with the same basic recipe as our ever-popular opaque base. Do not overheat or microwave soap bases as high heat will ruin the lather and make the soap brittle. Fingerprints can be removed from soap with a little of alcohol. A tip when pouring into soap molds, do not fill to the very top, leave a small space in order to allow the soap to release easily.
