Botanic Planet Canada is the only place to get your premium Stephenson Melt & Pour Soap Bases. Perfect for beginners - Melt the soap & add your favorite soap additives, botanical extracts, color, essential oils or fragrance.
DIRECTIONS:- Place add desired amount of melt & pour soap in a double boiler or microwave-safe bowl. Cutting the soap into small pieces will help it melt faster. Do not put the plastic tubs in the microwave; take the soap out first. Heat on medium heat (50% power in microwave) until fully melted. Stir occasionally and do not overheat. If using a thermometer, around 140 degrees F is good. Add 2 teaspoons of scent for each pound of soap base. This amount can be adjusted according to your preference and the strength of the scent you are using. Use only soap-safe fragrance or essential oils. Optional: Add 1/4 teaspoon of powdered colorant per pound of soap base, and mix well. We recommend micas for melt & pour soap.
Oxides & ultramarines can also be used, but are a little harder to work with for beginners. You can also use food coloring or FD&C colors in liquid form - just add a couple drops at a time until desired color strength is reached. Carefully pour soap into molds. Spritz the soap with alcohol to remove any little bubbles that may form at the edges. Let soap cool for several hours or overnight. Gently flex mold to release soap, or pop mold into freezer for 20 minutes if the soap is hard to get out. Don't force the mold. Soap is now ready to use!
