Making Cinnamon Soap!

Finally, I did it. I successfully made scented soap on my own! It was a lot easier than I thought. If you take a look at my previous posts, I decided to buy a 5 lb bag of soap base. All you need to do is melt it, and scent it. I'll take you through the process.


-1 lb Soap Base
-1 Tbsp Cinnamon

I measured out EXACTLY 1 lb of soap base. You don't know how many combinations of soap blocks I made, trying to get exactly 1 lb, but I did it.

Meanwhile, on the stove, I set up a double boiler so I could melt the soap.

Once the soap was melted, I added in the tablespoon of Cinnamon and stirred it until it was mixed in as much as possible.

Then I poured the soap into the mold and tried to make them as even as possible.... It didn't work out that well. I'm going to have to work on that...

Once the soap has cooled down and is solid, you can remove the soap from the mold. Below is the finished product! 

I've done some looking around, and a bar sells for 3-7 dollars online. Maybe I'll start selling them...
