STAR WARS SOAPS RECIPE DIRECTIONS
In a microwave safe bowl, melt soap base in microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
Add the sweet almond oil.
Add lavender essential oil. This essential oil has got to be one of the most widely used and versatile. Lavender oil has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can speed up the healing process of burns, cuts and can help lessen the formation of scars. It works great on eczema when paired with chamomile essential oil. It is also known to help relax you and induce sleep.
Add patchouli essential oil. This oil has been shown to have strong astringent and anti-inflammatory properties and can help lift your mood. It can also inhibit fungal growth and reduce fevers.
Add rose essential oil. This oil is one of my favorite oils! It is a natural antiseptic and offers antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It can also help fade scars and even reduce anxiety.
Add chamomile essential oil. I used this oil because it can calm irritated skin, acts as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It can also fade scars, prevent wounds from becoming infected and can even relieve pain as it has analgesic properties.
Mix everything together.
If you are using more than one color, evenly distribute into as many bowls as needed. We used two colors: purple and orange. Add your first color (in the example, we used orange.)
Whisk into soap mixture.
Pour mixture into mold.
Spray soap mixture with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles.
Allow to harden for at least two hours and gently pop out of mold. Store in a plastic bag or a container with a lid until ready to use.
Repeat for the other colours to create more soaps.
