Recipe Directions

  1. TE: 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.
  2. Weigh 6 oz. of clear soap and cut into chunks. Place in glass measuring cup and heat in microwave until melted.
  3. Add color until desired shade is achieved and mix.
  4. Add 5 ml of fragrance and blend in.
  5. Pour the soap into one soap cavity, spritz with alcohol and allow to set up.
  6. Unmold the rectangle. Using a soap cutter, cut soap lengthwise into 4 strips. Each strip should be 1/2". This will make the "binding" for the book. Any leftover soap can be remelted for the book cover.
  7. Place silicone mold on jelly roll pan to give stability to mold.
  8. Place the 4 - 1/2" strips into the mold cavities, standing up along the left side of the cavity to act as the binding.
  9. Melt 3 oz. of clear soap and mix in the same color used to make the binding.
  10. Add 2.5 ml of fragrance and stir in.
  11. Generously spritz binding with alcohol and pour a thin layer of the melted soap in each cavity. This will be the cover of the book.
  12. Spritz with alcohol to release surface bubbles and let soap harden.
  13. Cut up 12 oz. of white soap and place in glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave until melted.
  14. Add 10 ml of fragrance to melted soap and stir.
  15. Check to make sure soap temperature is under 125 degrees before pouring.
  16. Generously spritz the sides and bottom of each cavity with alcohol.
  17. Pour the white soap evenly between the 4 cavities. Spritz, again, and allow to set up.
  18. Melt the remaining 3 oz. of clear soap and mix in the same color used for the binding.
  19. Add 2.5 ml of fragrance and stir in.
  20. Generously spritz the book pages/binding with alcohol and pour the remaining soap evenly between the 4 cavities. Spritz and allow to set up.
  21. Carefully unmold the 4 books. The edges may need to be cleaned up, which can be done by shaving off the extra soap using a soap cutter.
  22. To make the pages of the book, use a soap cutter to make indents in the white portion. Cutting at an angle gives them a more textured look. You can also bevel the edges at this point.
  23. Repeat above steps to make 4 more books in next color.
