Make Scented Soaps


Step 1: Cut the blocks of soap into 2-3 chunks, put soap in microwave safe bowl for 20minutes, microwave it. Stir, then heat again for another 10seconds. Repeat until soap has completely melted.

Step 2: Add a drop of food colouring & five drops of essential oil. Stir until food colouring is evenly mixed.
