Peyton and I really enjoy making gifts and giving them to those we love and care about it. I think it adds a personal touch and is more meaningful than a store-bought gift. These sweetheart soaps are a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Everyone needs soap, so why not gift them these super cute bars of soap. They are a two-step process and work best if you make them over two days. But if you want to, you can do this in one day. There will just be some breaks in between steps.
Here is what you’ll need to make these sweetheart soaps at home –
3 – 1-inch cubes Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 – 1-inch cubes Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
Square soap mold
Heart Candy/Soap Mold
15 drops Coconut Fragrance Oil
1 drop Cherry Soap Colorant
1 drop Peach Soap Colorant
Small spray bottle with witch hazel
Personally, I like to lay out everything I’m going to need before I start. That way, I can make sure I have everything and it also makes it easier to work the recipe without having to search for items as you go.
First, you are going to cut the Goat’s Milk base into 1-inch cubes.
Then take a microwave-safe measuring cup and place 4 1-inch cubes of Goats Milk base in it. Melt in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well to ensure the goat’s milk is completely melted and smooth.
Next, add the cherry soap colorant to the melted goat’s milk and still until the color is evenly distributed.
Pour into the heart soap molds. You should have enough to make at least 6 hearts. Give it a little spray of witch hazel to make sure no air bubbles form.
Let set for about 20 minutes. You will know it’s set when you touch the soaps and they are hard. You can let the soaps sit longer.
Remove from mold and place two hearts upside down in 3 of the square soap mold cavities.
While the hearts are setting up, take the glycerin melt and chop it into 1-inch cubes.
Take a clean microwave-safe measuring cup, melt 4 – 1-inch cubes Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir the soap base to get out any clumps and melt any remaining glycerin.
Add Peach soap colorant and Coconut fragrance oil to the melted glycerin soap base. Stir well until the color is evenly combined.
Let the temperature cool for about one minute, then pour over heart soaps in square soap mold cavities. Give it a little spray of witch hazel.
Allow soap to form for about an hour before removing it from the mold. You can let it sit longer. I like to let mine sit overnight.
Now you can wrap them up and give them as gifts or put them in your bathroom to help make it more festive for the holiday. Be sure to checkout some of our other soap recipes.
