Mothers Day Silky Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

For this bath and body craft project, you will need:


* silk flowers

* Cellophane Sleeves or Wrapping (pick up at local craft shop, florist, or market)

* ribbon or bow

* clothes hanger and clothes pins

* 1 lb. Melt and Pour Soap (opaque)

* 1 Tbls. Jojoba Oil

* 1 tsp. Shea Butter

* 1 tsp. grated beeswax

* Fragrance (to match flowers)

* no color or a very light pastel


Melt in a double boiler. Use a drink mixer to incorporate all the ingredients well. Allow soap mixture to cool for a few minutes, but not too much. Hold a single silk flower by the stem, dip it into the soap mixture. You may need to gently twirl the flower between finger and thumb so that the soap covers all of the flower petals. Pull the flower out of the soap mixture and hold above mixture allowing excess soap to drip off the flower. Again, you may want to gently twirl the flower between finger and thumb, but this time it will be to seperate petals they may try to stick together.


Take your freshly dipped silk flower and attach it upside down to a clothes hanger using a clothes pin. Do not crowd the flowers or they may stick to each other. Allow the flowers to hang upside down until the soap sets.


Once you have made as many soap flowers as you would like, wrap the flowers as you would if they came from a florist using the cellophane sleeve or wrapping. Finish your silky soap bouquet with a big beautiful bow.

Bath and Body Tip #1

Make a bath pillow by taking a small pillow and putting a kitchen trash bag over it to keep it dry. Place it inside a regular pillowcase.
