A fun activity that highlights the importance of hand washing while creating a very special unicorn inspired soap.
Add 8 cubes of the goats milk soap base to each microwave safe bowl or measuring cup.
Add a few drops of essential oil into each container.
Starting with the first container, melt soap cubes in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted.
Into first container, add 1 or 2 drops of coloring, stir well. Add one drop and stir well until the desired colour is achieved. A little goes a long way!
Spray the inside of the mold with rubbing alcohol.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of first color into each cavity of the mold.
Spray with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles from forming. Allow it to harden completely before pouring the next layer. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
Now make the second colour the same way you made the first colour.
Spray the first layer of hardened soap with the rubbing alcohol. This is to help adhere each layer of soap to one another. Gently pour about a teaspoon worth into the mold. Spray with rubbing alcohol.
Each layer will need more time to dry as they get thicker as you move to the top of the mold.
Repeat with remaining colours until cavity of the mold is filled.
When you have filled all the cavities to the top, allow it to harden to least 24 hours.
After 24 hours, when the soap is nice and hard, place the mold in freezer for 30-60 minutes. This will allow the soap to contract enough to pull away from the sides of the mold. Place the mold on a plate and gently tap the top and sides of each unicorn horn soap with a spoon. The soaps should slide out. If not, place the whole thing back in the freezer for another 30 minutes.
Optional Final Step - spray your soap lightly with the alcohol. Then spray the tip of a paintbrush with alcohol and dip it into the glitter. Brush the unicorn horn soaps with glitter.
