Melt and Pour Glycerin Soap Recipes

Soap Making Recipes. Glycerin Soap Recipes. Bath Salt and Bath Bomb Recipes.


Safety Note:  Only use Cosmetic Safe Fragrances, Dyes and
Pigments when making Personal Care Products!


Melt and Pour Glycerin Soap can be melted in a microwave or on the stove in a double boiler. We prefer using a microwave because it's safer than boiling water, especially if you're making the soap with children.  Using a microwave is also much faster than the double boiler method.

If you plan on making large batches of soap for resale, you may want to invest in a wax melter that has temperature control settings.

Whether you use a microwave or a double boiler, you don't want the temperature of the glycerin soap to exceed 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).    Doing so could cause the soap to form crystals on the surface after some time because the glycerin soap has lost so much moisture.  Overheating could also denature the color of the glycerin soap causing it to turn yellowish.  If you do overheat the glycerin soap, you can replace the lost moisture by adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of liquid vegetable glycerin for every pound that has been overheated, however the yellowish hue may be permanent.

Note:  If using a Wax Melter, Crock Pot or Electric Roaster,
Keep the lid on so the glycerin soap does not loose it's moisture. 
If the soap does loose too much moisture, add a little distilled water to the melted soap.

Safety Note:  If using a Microwave Oven - Only use a glass microwave safe measuring cup.


Basic Recipe for Making Melt and Pour Glycerin Soap

To help the glycerin soap release for the molds easier, spray a cotton ball with vegetable cooking spray. Wipe the inside of each soap mold with the cotton ball just before pouring the glycerin soap into the molds.
Do Not  put the glycerin soap in the refrigerator or freezer to help the soap release from the molds. Doing this will cause the glycerin in the soap to come to the surface and the soap will start to sweat.

Melt the glycerin soap in a microwave using a microwave safe measuring cup, not letting the soap exceed 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).    After you remove the soap from the microwave, stir the glycerin soap to make sure that all of the soap in the measuring cup has melted.

You can now add your dyes or pigments and the fragrance oil to the melted soap and stir well. Use approximately 1/2 teaspoon of fragrance oil per pound of soap, not exceeding 1 teaspoon per pound.    Adding to much fragrance oil to the soap could damage your soap molds.


Note:  Be aware that the soap base and the fragrance oils can cause the final color to vary. Over stirring will cause the soap to foam. If this happens, you can spray the melted soap with a little 70% rubbing alcohol and gently stir the soap before pouring the soap into the molds. Pour the melted soap into the soap molds. If bubbles or foam still form after the soap has been poured into the molds, spray a little more rubbing alcohol on the soap and use a spoon to skim off the remaining foam. Let the soap completely cool for 12 to 24 hours before trying to remove it from the molds. Wrap the soap in kitchen plastic wrap immediately after removing from the molds.



Bath Salt Recipes

Bath Salt Recipe.

Made using our Fine Crystal Sea Salt

Our Liquid Dyes and Liquid Pigments should be diluted with distilled water.
Ratio: 1 to 3 parts of distilled water to 1 part of liquid dye or liquid pigment.
The dilution ratio will depend on the shade you are trying to achieve.

If your finished bath salts will be exposed to sunlight for extended periods of time,
use pigments instead of dyes because dyes will fade where pigments will not.

the salt should be dry to the touch after you stir it.
