- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
- Using a digital scale, weigh 2 oz. of clear soap and add to glass pyrex cup.
- Place glass cup in microwave and heat soap until melted.
- Once soap is completely melted, add 1/2 Teaspoon of liquid glycerin. Stir well.
- Add 1.5 ml of fragrance oil. Add liquid green color until desired shade is reached.
- Stir well and pour into loaf mold. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to pop any surface bubbles.
- In microwave, melt 1.5 ounces of white soap.
- Once soap is completely melted, add 1/4 teaspoon of liquid glyerin. Stir well.
- Add 1.5 ml of fragrance oil. Stir well.
- When the green soap (in the mold) is warm (allowing only a slight finger indent) and the white soap is 125º F, spritz the green soap with a generous amount of rubbing alcohol.
- Carefully ladle the white soap onto the green soap. Move the ladle around while pouring. This will prevent the warmer colored soap from causing a "break through" of white into the green layer of soap.
- Lightly mist the top of the melted soap with rubbing alcohol. This will cause surface bubbles to pop.
- When the soap is firm and only slightly warm, unmold onto a table.
- Melt about 1-1.5 oz. of clear soap and add green color until it is the same shade as the first layer of soap.
- Drizzle the green soap over the white layer. This will act as a "glue" when you roll up the soap.
- Starting at one end (shorter side), tightly roll the soap. Try to tuck the beginning of the roll in as tight as possible so there will not be a hole in the middle of your soap.
- Once rolled, allow soap to completely harden.
- Taking a soap slicer, cut the soap roll into 5-6 slices, depending on how thick you want the soap candy to be.
- Package your soap candy as you like. We chose to wrap our candy in cello, tying each end with coordinating ribbon.
- Now repeat above steps using the red liquid pigment color.
- This recipe will make 5-6 green soap candies and 5-6 red soap candies.
- The soap is ready to use after unmolding. If you plan to sell your soap, wrap it immediately. Proper packaging keeps the fragrance strong. Don't forget to label the soap to complete the package. Label according to FDA cosmetic label guidelines.
- Recipe Options: Make soap candy using fruit fragrances and coordinating colors.
