You will also need a heart shape mold like this one.

Homemade Soap Recipe Directions

  1. Melt about 8 ice cube sized blocks of soap base in a  glass measuring cup in the microwave (more or less until you have 2/3 cup)
  2. Once melted, mix in your sweet almond oil and essential oils
  3. Then mix in your mica powder with a wooden spoon or stir stick until it is completely dissolved. 
  4.  Pour the solution into your heart molds and lightly mist with rubbing alcohol to help prevent air bubbles from forming of the surface (this is optional)
  5. Freeze for 15 minutes and carefully remove each heart from the molds (they should pop right out) 

Easy right?!!

Tip:  Mica Powders will stain so make sure you lay newspaper down before using them.

Here are a few different varieties you should attempt:

  • Lavender and citrus (this is probably my most requested scent)
  • Lavender Rosemary Orange Peel
  • Lavender Mint
  • Ginger Grapefruit
  • Grapefruit Mint
  • Rosemary
  • Rosemary Mint
  • Citrus Patchouli
  • Lemon
  • Lemongrass
  • Lemon Lime
  • Lemon Citrus
  • Orange
  • Yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit)
  • Eucalyptus Mint
  • Pomegranate Peach
  • Bergomot Grapefruit
  • Spearmint Eucalyptus

I better stop there.  Seriously, I think I could go on and on with scent combinations.  Those listed above are quite popular.  I’m certain you will enjoy them just as much as I do.  I suggest starting with a scent you are familiar with.  Then when you want to experiment, invest in an essential oils kit that has a good selection of oils like this Essential Oils Kit on Amazon.  It has most of the scent combos I listed above and it will last you a very long time!

The one essential oil that I have to purchase on it’s own because it’s not in a kit is Yuzu essential oil.  I love the citrus scent though so it’s worth it for me to grab it!

The other ingredient I use in this homemade soap recipe is Mica powder.  Be sure to get the cosmetic grade Mica Powders just like this set I also purchased from Amazon. The colors are amazingly vibrant and come out oh so beautiful in my soaps!
