Instructions

  1. Fill a small saucepan with water and place on low heat.
  2. Cut 2.5 ounces of melt and pour soap from the block and add to the glass pyrex measuring cup.
  3. Place the measuring cup in the saucepan and melt the soap on low, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add pink mica to the soap once melted and stir gently to combine.
  5. Using a pot holder, take the pyrex measuring cup off the heat and allow the soap to cool slightly, but not harden.
  6. Drop in 10 drops of essential oil and stir well.
  7. Place one-half of the plastic Easter eggs in an opened egg carton to stabilize. Pour soap evenly between molds.
  8. Repeat steps 1-6 for purple, green, and yellow mica. Alternate pouring layers between the Easter egg halves, so that each layer has time to cool. You can always put the molds in the refrigerator or freezer to cool them more quickly. Also, You will want to fill each half of the egg until just about full.
  9. Next, add remaining melt and pour soap base to the double boiler. This will be for the middle layer and I find that it's best to have a little extra.
  10. Once melted, add in blue mica and stir well. Remove from heat.
  11. You want to let this layer cool as much as possible before pouring so that it is thick. Stir occasionally so that it cools off evenly.
  12. Add in 20 drops of Roman Chamomile essential oil and stir well.
  13. When the blue layer is cool, fill every Easter egg half with a layer of blue soap. Make sure to fill each half to the brim so that it will meet when you press the two halves together.
  14. This step is the messy one: push the halves of the Easter Egg molds together while the soap is still soft. You may have some come out of the sides, but it can be easily cleaned up. Make sure you push the halves together tightly!
  15. Place the Easter egg soap in the freezer for several hours. This will help get them out of the mold more easily. Remove from the mold and set in the egg carton to dry for 24 hours.
  16. Enjoy!
