How to make egg-shaped soap
Egg-shaped soap looks very unusual and amusing. People who will receive it as a gift will be happy for sure. Making one is very easy; even a child can do it.
- White soap base
- Essential oil or cosmetic perfume
- Sweet almond oil
- Yellow cosmetic dye
Cut the soap base and allow it to melt using a water bath method.
Pour off a small amount of soap base and add yellow dye to it.
Pour the yellow soap base in a small round mold; this will be the egg yolk. You can place it inside the refrigerator so that the soap will turn solid faster.
Add sweet almond oil in the melted white soap base, which will help in skin care while taking a bath. You can add 1 teaspoon of almond oil for every 3.53 oz (100 grams) of white soap base.
Add your favorite essential oil or cosmetic perfume in the white soap.
Pour the melted white soap in the egg mold. Leave about 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) from the top of mold.
If air bubbles appear on the soap base’ surface, sprinkle some alcohol to remove them.
Wait until the formation of a thick film on the surface of soap, which can carry the yolk.
Sprinkle the soap with alcohol and place yolk at the center.
Fill up to the top with the melted white soap. That’s why we left 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) from the top of mold in previous steps.
Leave the soap until it become solid and then remove it from the mold.
The egg-shaped soap is now ready for use.
To make the flavor stay longer and for the skin not to dry, wrap the soap in plastic wrapper or bags especially made for soap packing.
- Picking a stable yellow dye is very important to prevent coloring of the white part.
- Choose cosmetic fragrances that will not change the color of the soap base (for example vanilla will result to a coloring white soap into the yellow one).
