A few small molds White glyc­erin soap Red soap col­or­ing Pep­per­mint es­sen­tial oil

Note: If you’re in a time crunch, or need to make a large batch of soap to gift to a great deal of peo­ple, here’s a method for mak­ing soap bars in ap­prox­i­mately 10 min­utes.


1 Se­lect small molds. We used sil­i­cone cup­cake molds. You can use what­ever you like, but some­thing smaller than the size of a fist is about right. That way you can cre­ate in­di­vid­ual bar-sized soap, which will en­sure it sets quickly.

2 Melt the white glyc­erin soap, and pour it into the molds. Then add one drop of pep­per­mint es­sen­tial oil and two drops of red soap col­or­ing. Us­ing a fork, mix it around once or twice. The in­tent is not to turn the soap red, but to give it a swirly ap­pear­ance.

3 Wait for the soap to set, then pop it out and you’re done.
