Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces creamy melt and pour soap bars
  • 14 cup distilled water
  • 6 -10 drops strawberry fragrance oil
  • 14 cup powdered milk
  • 3 drops vanilla fragrance oil or 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 -5 drops red food coloring (optional)

Directions

  1. Grate the soap, or chop into tiny pieces using a very sharp knife.
  2. Use a double boiler for this soap.
  3. (or you can just use a heat-proof glass bowl over a pan of water- that's what I always do).
  4. In top of double boiler combine the grated soap, water, dry milk powder.
  5. Keep the water in bottom of double boiler simmering (about 2-3 cups of water).
  6. Stir the mixture occasionally and allow it to melt down into a smooth consistency.
  7. You can even whisk it with a wire whisk to get rid of any lumps.
  8. Remove from heat.
  9. Add strawberry fragrance oil, vanilla fragrance oil (or extract) and the food coloring if you decide to use it.
  10. It will add a nice pinkish color to the soap, making it look the color of strawberries and cream.
  11. Spoon the soap out into soap molds and allow to sit for about twenty four hours before unmolding.
  12. Then let it sit another couple of hours before using.
  13. If you don't have soap molds, try using muffin tins, aluminum tart shells, or any candy molds that you have at home for miniature soaps.
  14. Or you can spoon the mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan and then cut into it to make bars of soap.
  15. Enjoy this wonderful soap!
