Easy DIY Homemade Melt & Pour Rose Soap with Glycerin & Goats Milk

Easy DIY Homemade Melt & Pour Rose Soap with Glycerin & Goats Milk

I’ve been having so much fun making different varieties of easy DIY homemade melt and pour soaps and wanted to create one for the Valentine’s Day season. When I found a bottle of Rose Absolute essential oil, I knew this was the next scent I wanted to try. If you’ve never tried making your own melt and pour soap making, you’ll be shocked at how easy it is. You can use natural and organic soap bases so you know you are making toxic free soap. These make absolutely wonderful gifts! Rose scented soap isn’t just for Valentine’s day either – this one is great all year long and could come in handy as a great Mother’s Day gift as well!

This is enough to make 24 bars

We are going to be making this soap in 2 different layers – one glycerin layer and one goat’s milk soap layer.  So we will melt and pour the glycerin layer first.  Start by cutting up the glycerin soap into smaller cubes and placing them in your microwave safe glass measuring cup.  My Pyrex cup can only hold one pound of soap at a time – (half of what you ordred) which is enough to make 12 bars.

When your soap is cut into cubes, place in the microwave for (3) 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval.  You may need a 4th time, depending on how full your cup is of soap.  Just be sure the soap is completely melted.

Then add 20 drops of Rose absolute essential oil and stir well.

If you want a splash of gold mica on the top of your soaps (and who wouldn’t, right? 🙂 then you need to sprinkle the gold mica powder in your soap mold before you pour in your soap.  I found that placing the mica powder in a tea infuser works great to spread the powder out evenly.

I gently tapped the tea infuser on the side of the mold and the powder gently falls and you’ll get a nice even sprinkling of our “soap bling.”

Once your soap mold cavities are powdered, then you can fill each cavity half way with the melted glycerin layer of soap.  Notice on the right hand side, I poured the soap directly in the middle and that will disrupt your gold powder and create a gap.

On the left, I poured the soap slowly in the corner so I would disrupt the gold powder the least as possible.

You can grab a toothpick or skewer and swirl the soap, which will also stir up the gold powder a bit as well.  You can experiment with this depending on the look you want for the top layer of soap.

As the soap cools, you will want to use your skewer and create a bumpy surface.  Probably wait about 5 minutes for the soap to cool and you can then move the soap around a bit to create this texture.  This will help the goat’s milk layer to stick better when you pour that in next.

While you are waiting for the glycerin layer to cool and texturize, go ahead and start heating up your goat’s milk soap in 30 second intervals in the microwave.  Again, stir each time in between and microwave it until it’s fully melted – about 1 minute and a half to 2 minutes total.

Add another 20 drops of Rose Absolute essential oil and 2-3 drops of red soap coloring.

Stir this well until you get a smooth pink color.

Be sure the glycerin layer is cool enough so that when you pour in the goats milk layer, it won’t pour into a liquefied glycerin layer. Be sure there is a solid glycerin layer to pour on.   Fill the rest of the soap mold cavities with the goats milk soap layer.

If you notice any bubbles on the top after pouring, you can give it a quick spray of isopropyl alcohol and the bubbles disappear.  That ensures a nice smooth bottom to your soap.

Let the bars full cool before attempting to pop them out of the mold.  I’d wait a few hours.

Here is one bar after it is cooled – I just love the pink and clear layers with the gold accent!!!!  This looks like very fancy soap that was super easy to make!!!

I used some gold leaf ribbon to tie around a couple of bars.  Now I have a great gift for a friend who needs some cheering up this Valentine’s Day!  I’ll also be saving some bars and using them as Mother’s day gifts – and of course will pamper myself by keeping a bar or 2 just for me!  🙂
