Goat's Milk Almond & Apricot Exfoliating Bar
Everything you need:
Soap base (goat's milk is super moisurizing)
scented oils (apricot & almond oil)
exfoliant (apricot seeds)
coloring (food coloring)
double boiler or microwave
molds (you could use a muffin tin)
cooking spray for lubricant
Directions are so easy & fun. I will not be seeing another bar of Dove in my shower for a quite some time.
First: cut your base up into chunks along the perforated lines and put into the double boiler. Keep stirring until everything is dissolved and soupy.
Second: Turn off heat and add a few drops of your oils. You can also add food coloring but a little goes a long way. Just 1 drop of red & 1 drop of orange got me the color I wanted.
Third: I added my packet of seeds and stirred with a wooden spoon until everyone got to know each other.
Fourth: Sprayed molds quickly and poured CAREFULLY so the soaps would be nice & perfect on top
BUT I didn't pour ALL OF IT.
Fifth: I got crafty and kept a little soap in the pot and added just a drop or two more coloring and mixed. Then I poured the remainder in to "top off" and give a striped effect when I popped them out. Well that was the plan anyway:) the color variation is definitely there & I'm really excited for how they turned out.
Let sit for a few hours & pop them out when firm. Mine smell so yummy and look fantastic. I can't wait to use them tomorrow morning. I was able to get 5 good size bars from the mold. They are gonna make the best gifts.
Oh yeah, almost forgot...clean up was a breeze;))
