    These quick peppermint soaps are a fun DIY holiday gift idea for family, friends, neigbours or teachers and can be whipped up in about ten minutes!

    What You’ll Need

    :

    • Melt and Pour Soap Base - Crystal - Oatmeal & Shea Butter
    • Peppermint Arvensis - Essential Oil
    • Red Soap Colorant
    • Soap Mold
    • Isopropyl Alcohol Spray
    • Microwave Safe Measuring Cup w/ Spout
    • Toothpick

     

     

    Microwave in 30second increments, stirring afterward each time until completely melted

     

     

    The large block of shea butter soap base is smooth and silky, and it cuts easily with a knife. Slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside the measuring cup, and melt in the microwave in 30-second increments.

    Stir well after each microwave session to ensure that the soap is completely melted.

    Add a few drops of peppermint oil (around 5-10 drops depending on the intensity of the fragrance) and mix well.

    [Note: To make three peppermint soap bars, I used just over 1/2 kg of soap base, and it took a total of 60 seconds in the microwave to melt. The soap cools and sets up rather quickly, so work accordingly!

     

     

    Pour the melted soap into the mould and top with a few drops of red soap colorant. Use a toothpick to swirl the white and red colours together, and allow to cool completely before removing the soap from the mould


    To finish it off, wrap a band of paper or ribbon around the stack of soap, and it’s ready for gifting!
