Showering is one of my absolutely favorite things to do in this world. And taking a shower after a long day of toiling outside and sweating like crazy is just the best thing ever. The hot water hitting sore muscles and washing away the day’s dirt leaving you with a blissfully soft and clean body? That feeling is my version of heaven. Being somebody who is personally obsessed with showering, I invest a lot of time and have a healthy budget for making and purchasing bath and body type of goods. I’ve got sugar scrubs and salt scrubs and hair masks and face masks and foaming soaps and you freaking name it. I’ve even bought or made nice soaps for others as a polite request that need, erm, a little motivation to soap up… And it almost always works, at least for a while, because everybody loves to try new things, right? I mean, a boyfriend and I got into a light-hearted tiff about who got to run the brand new vacuum cleaner many, many years ago. He won, he did run it first and then never touched it again 🙂 When I first started making my DIY soaps I was amazed at how easy it was. Way back in the day, when I was still in college and back home for Christmas, my sister, a family friend and I got a soap making kit from the craft store. We made these awful bars of soap and I remember how badly I burned my eyes with a chemical type of vapor, or something. It was awful and I still have no CLUE what in the world that was! But after that little experience, I was all, making soap? Never freakin’ again. That business is straight up DANGEROUS, haha! And it literally took me at least 12 years before I was willing to try it again. And I think the catalyst was seeing CHILDREN making soap in a video. If they can do it without their parents worrying they will go blind, perhaps I should give it another go? And so I did and the rest is history. I have been obsessed with making my own soap ever since and when I recently moved I made darn well sure to bring with me every single bit of soapmaking gear I have acquired over the years. No room for my shoes? Oh well, grab the melt and pour! Today we’re going to be making some absolutely gorgeous crystal gemstone soaps that only LOOK like they’re going to be crazy difficult. It’s another one of those things I kind of wanted to make but worried would be too difficult but, guys, it so isn’t. It’s actually the EASIEST and most FUN soap making project because you can just sort of go nuts and mad science this business up with always decent results and very often absolutely stunning ones. So if you’re new to soap making and you’re worried you can’t accomplish these gorgeous crystal gemstone soaps, put that worry to bed because even if this is your first EVER soap making project, I’m going to give you the tips to totally NAIL IT! For this project you will need: Gemstone Soap Molds Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base White Melt and Pour Soap Base Fragrance Oils or Essential Oils Microwave Fragrance Oils Mica Soap Colorant Gel/Liquid Soap Colorant Spray Bottle with Rubbing Alcohol Loose Gold Leaf (optional) These are our molds. Aren’t they genius? Now, heads up, your very first go around these molds are going to be quite a bit difficult to remove the soaps from them. But, luckily, each soap thereafter will pop out pretty darn easy as you please. Not just meant for soap, they can be used for resin projects, too! Looking at crystals and rocks and stuff in the gift shop of a cavern I visited with my nephews during our 2018 Texas Tour (our annual 3-week summer vacation!) I noticed how pretty the colorful stones were and how the really rough and natural looking stones weren’t s solid color. There was often a lighter and darker hue of the same color plus some clear, some white and sometimes even veining of gold. To imitate this as well as we can we’ve got a whole lot of stuff going on. In the photo above, you can see the colors I used for my amethyst inspired stone including violet colored mica soap colorant and purple gel/liquid soap colorant. But ‘a whole lot of stuff’ doesn’t translate to difficult… …it just translates to messy 🙂 And I have also found that messy very often translates to FUN! So buckle up, kiddos, because this is definitely a fun soap-making ride, even if it is your first rodeo (translation, beginners welcome!) As far as craft supplies go, mica soap colorant can be a bit pricey. But I am a total cheapskate when it comes to a lot of things, and so you can trust me when I say it’s a craft supply that is definitely worth the price. You’ll get gorgeous colors that have just a little bit of glitz and luster AND a little bit of mica goes a LONG way. In fact, so that I don’t accidentally overdo it, I’ll take an itty bitty spoon and sprinkle just a touch on top of my soap right before it is melted. Because once the soap is melted and I try to add colorant I get all frantic, trying to hurry and I always, always drop more in than I had meant to. And it’s not going to make the color any prettier, it’s just going to use more and essentially waste what you didn’t need to toss in there. If you melt your soap and find that it isn’t colorful enough, you can always add
