DIY Soap On A Rope

Soap on a rope

Here is a great idea for DIY Soap On A Rope from Katie at abeautifulmess.com.

Supplies:
-glycerin melt and pour soap base (available at most craft stores)
-essential oils—Katie used lemon, lavender, rose, and mint
-rope
-household containers in any shape or size you’d like. Plastic works the best. Tin cans can make it hard to extract the soap.

Step 1- Cut your soap base into cubes

Step 2- Melt four or five 2″ x 2″ cubes for a pint size container in your microwave.

Step 3- Once the base is melted, mix in whatever essential oils you’d like. Katie put in around 20-25 drops for these soaps.

Step 4- Position your rope perfectly in your container. Mason jars and a ruler work perfectly!

Step 5- Let the Soap set in the plastic containers overnight.. The Soap should pop right out the next day!

Enjoy! These homemade soaps are perfect house warming, gift ideas or you can just keep them all to yourself!
