Good morning everyone! I hope you are enjoying all of the Christmas gift ideas, tutorials and videos this month! Today I’m sharing a really easy and fun DIY Peppermint Swirl Soap recipe with you. These not only make great gifts, but they are super easy and smell absolutely wonderful!
You will need:
- 1 lb. Shea Butter Soap Base (It comes in a 2lb. block, and I used 1/2 of the block.)
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Red Soap Colorant
- Soap Mold
- Microwave Safe Measuring Cup w/ Spout
- Toothpick or wooden stirring tool to swirl the coloring.
Note: My recipe made about 5 small bars of soap.
Watch the video below to see how to make this simple but festive Peppermint Swirl Soap!
Tip: Pour the melted soap in the mold, then add a few drops of red food coloring. Next finish filling the mold completely with the soap and swirl the mixture with a popsicle stick or tooth pick to spread out the color within the bar of soap.
Here’s what they look like when they’re done! We also died a 2nd batch a light pink, then added red swirls. I think they turned out great!
Next decorate your bar of soap by tying a festive holiday ribbon around it and adding a cute little tag to the front. You can download my Peppermint Swirl Soap Tags here.
