DIY Mermaid Soap

I love mermaids and this mermaid soap is such a fun take on the mermaid trend.

 

Materials-
Glycerin soap block
Orange therapeutic grade essential oil
Mermaid tail silicone mold
Cosmetic body safe glitter
Cosmetic grade pink & purple mica powder
Knife
Cutting board
Craft sticks for stirring
Small spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
Clear glass measuring cup

Directions-
1. Cut about 8 ice cube sized pieces off your glycerin soap block.
2. Place the 8 soap cubes into your glass measuring cup and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until melted.
3. Mix in about 5 drops of your essential oil and 1/8 teaspoon of your mica powder.
4. Using a pot holder, carefully pour your melted soap into the mermaid tail molds and spray the top with your rubbing alcohol (this will prevent air bubbles from forming).
5. Transfer to the freezer for 30 minutes.
6. Carefully stretch the sides of your mold and carefully press up on the bottom to remove your Mermaid tail soaps.

*if you want the soaps to be glittery, you can rub your molds with a little body safe glitter before pouring the liquid soap in the mold.

*if you want the soaps to be multicolored, heat your soap cubes in two separate glass measuring cups and mix in your colors separately. Carefully pour one color in one side and pour the other color in the other side of the mold.
