In this video, we created four different bars of soap.

The slightly orange bar of soap was made using Suspension White Melt & Pour Soap, Stained Glass Citrus Orange Liquid Color, Apricot Seed Powder, and Orange Guava Odor Neutralizing Fragrance Oil. The soap was molded in Crafter's Choice® Short (Small) Loaf Silicone Mold.

The white oatmeal soap was made with Premium Goat Milk Soap, Oat ScrubHoney Almond Fragrance Oil, and Vanilla Color Stabilizer. The soap was molded in Crafter's Choice® Short (Small) Loaf Silicone Mold.

The yellow soap was made with Suspension Clear Soap Base, Suspension White Soap Base, Lemon Peel Granules, and Lemon Verbena Fragrance Oil. It was molded in Crafter's Choice® Short (Small) Loaf Silicone Mold with the top accent created from Milky Way® Citrus Small Round Soap Mold.

The glitter bar was made with Premium Crystal Clear Soap, Caribbean Blue Glitter, and Island Nectar Fragrance. It was molded using an Oval Clamshell.
