- Cut your 1 kg opaque soap base into small chunks and place into a pan (around 100 grams). Slowly heat the chunks until all chunks are melted, remember to regularly stir the soap and do not exceed 70°C.Step 2:
- Once the soap base has fully melted you can now add a few drops purple pigment, and stir thoroughly.Step 3:
- Now carefully spoon the mixture into the butterfly cavity, wipe away any excess or spillage and leave for 5-10 minutes to set.Step 4:
- Now go back to your mixture, slowly add in a further 10ml purple pigment, 10 ml lavender essential oil and a handful of lavender petals whilst slowly stirring.Step 5:
- Once the mixture is thoroughly stirred, carefully pour over the top of the butterflys until the entire mould is full, this should take around 500 grams of melted soap base. Rubbing alcohol can be used at this point to disperse the surface bubbles. Leave the soaps to fully set for around 2 hours, or place in the fridge for 30 minutes.Step 6:
- Once your soaps are fully set, they should pop out the mould easily, if you are struggling to pop them out, allow them to set for a while longer. You have now completed your leavender butterfly soaps!
You can now repeat the whole process with the left over ingredients to make another 4 soap bars.
