Handmade soap

Sweet honey soap bars

Soap cubes (I had 3 small bars for 3 soaps, shea bar, white soap bar and transparent)

Mica color powder ( 2- pink and golden)

Soap mold (I had only one small, but it is always better to have extra 1 or 2)

Fragrance dropper

Stirrer stick

2 microwave safe bowls

Alcohol (if need to get rid of bubbles)

Spray bottle for alcohol

Instructions:

  1. Cut soap cubes on smaller pieces in 2 different bowls in order to make 2 colors. Microwave one by one for 20-30 seconds until it melts. Carefully remove from microwave (it might be hot) and add mica color slowly as you mix with the stirrer stick, making sure that the soap is smooth with no bubbles.
  2. Add about 8-10 drops of your fragrance of choice and stir. Be sure to work quickly as the soap solidifies rapidly. If your soap starts to solidify before you pour, place in the microwave another 10-15 seconds and stir.
  3. Decide which color you want each section of your soap to be and then carefully pour each colored soap mixture into the section of your choosing. Make sure to fill each mold all the way to the top.
  4. To avoid bubbles from forming in your soap, you can put alcohol into the spray bottle and spray it into your soap mixture to lessen the bubbles.
  5. Leave your soap to dry completely, this will take about 2 hours. Once it is fully dried, squeeze the mold gently until the soap pops out.
  6. If you had only one mold like me, reheat remaining soap mixture, adding a little more fragrance if desired and repeat 3-5 steps.

      2. I am from Ukraine, I just love languages, I was learning English, Greek, Spanish and yes, Polish. Just feel really pity that I do not use some of languages and started to forget. I had a goal to know about 7 languages. One of the reason why I pick specific languages it is my family. My great great grandfather is Greek, my great grandmother is German, my grandmother is Polish, my aunt is from Kazakhstan, another one is from Belarus, my fiance is from US, and just my desire to learn more about Spanish and Portuguese. Or, I just crazy and want to know languages)

      3. I do not have Polish keyboard on my laptop, it makes more difficult to type on Polish. Basically I know some rules, alphabet, maybe forgot some letters, but I hope not.
