I love making our own soap. It is simple to do at home with just 3 ingredients. This allows us to have fun soaps without putting common artificial dyes on to the children’s skin. With our oldest having ADHD effected by artificial dyes we really have to use more natural ingredients for her body inside and out. Spring is coming and it is time to start filling Easter baskets. We like to skip the crazy amount of candy. We are filling the baskets with useful items. When a friend pointed out this super cute peeps mold she found I knew we needed something fun for it. This peep soap will be the perfect Easter basket filler for my girls.
What you need for peep soap:
- ½ lb melt and pour soap base
- 2 tsp. coconut oil
- 1- 2 tsp. hibiscus or beet root powder -for color
- 10-15 drops your choice of essential oils (optional for fragrance)
Make your own peep soap
Melt soap base and coconut oil over medium heat in a small saucepan.
Stir frequently with a wooden spoon until smooth and completely melted. You can also do this in the microwave in a glass dish, removing to stir every 30-40 seconds until melted.
Remove from heat and stir in hibiscus or beet root powder until you get your desired shade.
Pour carefully into mold right up to the top.
Allow mold to sit undisturbed until set, at least 2 hours.
Remove soap carefully from mold.and trim excess. Let cure before storing.
