We are in love with our new fragrance selections for autumn. They are complex and yummy without being overly sweet or foodie. Our favorite of the 6-pack is Honey Ale; it works perfectly in Cold Process soap, Melt & Pour soap, lotion, conditioner, and more.
Tools and Packaging:
ONE: Melt 25 ounces of Honey Melt and Pour soap base in the microwave and mix in .5 -.75 ounces of fragrance oil.
TWO: Whisk the melted soap until you have frothy bubbles on top. Switch between whisking and stirring the soap. The goal is to suspend the bubbles in the soap (to look like carbonation). Stir until the soap is gelatinous and pour into the mold. Do not spritz with rubbing alcohol. We want to keep the bubbles!
THREE: Once the soap has cooled, make your frosting recipe for the "foam". Combine 5 tablespoons of liquid soap with 8 ounces of White Melt and Pour and .25 ounces of Honey Ale Fragrance Oil and blend on medium/high with an electric mixer (or super strength elbow grease). See this Soap Queen TV episode on Soap Cupcakes with Whipped Frosting to learn more about soap frosting.
FOUR: Once the beer soap is completely cool and the frosting recipe is frothy, spritz the first layer of soap with rubbing alcohol and pour the soap frosting on top.
FIVE: Once the soap has cooled, carefully release from the mold and cut into adorable cubes and give them away or keep them all for yourself.
