Tis’ the season for all things pumpkin spice! This soap smells absolutely amazing as it embodies all the wonderful scents of fall. You could use the soap as a hostess gift or use in your own home for your guests to use during holiday get-togethers.
Shea Butter soap base (2 lbs of soap base will yield eight large 4 oz. bars of soap)
Red and yellow soap colorant
Pumpkin pie spice
Microwave safe measuring cup with spout
- Slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside a measuring cup and melt in the microwave in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave session to ensure the soap is completely melted. For every 1 lb of soap, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds.
- When the soap is completely melted, stir in 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice and a few drops of red and yellow soap colorant. In the picture above, 2 drops of red and 4 drops of yellow color were added. If you prefer a brighter orange, just add more colorant until you reach the desired shade. No need to worry about the color coming off on your body in the shower since the colorant is designed specifically for this purpose.
- Pour the melted soap into the soap mold and allow to sit undisturbed until cool (about 30 minutes or so).
- Remove from the mold and enjoy!
