Classic Heart Soap Project
These melt and pour bars are the perfect way to spread love to the special people in your life. They’re ready in just a few hours, and one batch makes about 8-10 bars.

Ingredients

10″ Silicone Loaf Mold
Mini Heart Silicone Column Mold
48 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
15 oz. Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
Perfect Red Color Block
1.3 oz. Crisp Apple Rose Fragrance Oil
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle

Instructions

1

Chop 15 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into small, uniform pieces. Place them in a small heat-safe container along with a small chunk of the Perfect Red Color Block. Melt in the microwave using 15 second bursts. Stir thoroughly to mix in the color. If necessary, add more shavings of the Perfect Red Color Block for a more vibrant shade.

2

Place the Mini Heart Column Molds into a tall container to keep them upright. Pour the soap into the molds and allow it to fully cool and harden for 1-3 hours. Unmold and trim off any imperfections. Cut the embeds to a length that will fit inside the 10″ Silicone Loaf Mold. Note: If you don't have 3 column molds, you can make the embeds in batches.

Chop 48 ounces of Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap into small, uniform pieces. Place them in a large heat-safe bowl and melt in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts.

TWO

4

Add 1.3 ounces of Crisp Apple Rose Fragrance Oil. Stir to combine. Allow the soap to cool to about 130° F – if it's is too hot for the following steps, it can melt the heart embed.

THREE

5

Pour enough white soap into the mold to completely cover the bottom – about 10 ounces. Spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles.

FOUR

6

Place one of the heart embeds into the soap toward one side of the mold. Hold the embed in place for several minutes until the white soap hardens enough to keep it steady.

FIVE

7

Spritz the bottom layer with 99% isopropyl alcohol, then pour in enough white soap to completely cover the heart embed. Spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to cool and harden for about 5-10 minutes.

FIVE2

8

If necessary, remelt the white soap in the microwave using 10-15 second bursts. Once it's around 130° F, spritz the soap in the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol. Pour in enough white soap to completely cover the bottom embed. Place another heart embed into the soap on the opposite side of the mold from the first one. Hold the embed in place for several minutes until the white soap can hold on its own.

9

Spritz the soap again with 99% isopropyl alcohol and pour more white soap into the mold until the heart embed is covered. Spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow the soap to cool and harden for about 10-15 minutes.

SIX2

10

If necessary, remelt the remaining white soap using 10-15 second bursts. Once the soap is around 130°F, spritz the soap in the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol. Pour a small layer of white soap into the mold and place the last embed into the soap on the opposite side of the mold as the second embed. Hold in place for several minutes until the soap cools and hardens enough to hold the embed on its own.

EIGHT

11

Spritz again with 99% isopropyl alcohol and pour the remaining white soap into either sides of the embed. Try your best to make both sides level. Spritz with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Tip: If you dribble a bit of white soap on the top embed or pour too much in, don’t worry. You can clean that off once the soap is hard with a clean-up tool or toothpick.

Allow the soap to fully cool and harden. Remove from the mold and use a non-serrated knife to cut into bars. If you live in a very humid area, wrap the bars in plastic wrap to prevent glycerin dew. Enjoy!
