- 1 part carrier oil (whatever oil you'd like to use. Coconut is a fave in blogland)
- 2 parts soap base (I got mine at Michaels)
- 3 parts sugar (I used white, but whatever you'd like)
- Essential oil (I used a body-safe scented oil)
- Soap colorant (red and yellow)
- Pumpkin mold (I got mine for around a dollar at Walmart)
- Glass bowl
- Spoon for mixing
- Melt your soap base (and oil if it is solid). The best method is using a double boiler, but a microwave will work too. Remember, the bowl will be hot, so please take proper precautions.
- Add in your colorant, scent, sugar, and mix everything.
- Spoon or pour mixture into mold. Allow to cool before popping out of mold.
- If your mix begins to cool and harden too quickly, add more oil to the mix. If it looks too much like soap, add more sugar.
- I used about 2 cubes to create around 20 or so of these. These are small molds I got at Walmart.
- As for the soap and soap colorant, I purchased those at Michaels.
- The scented oils I use are usually from Nature's Garden. These smell so good, but choose whatever scents you like. I know everyone isn't into pumpkin scents.
- I used white sugar so I could easily color it, but for a more pumpkin spice feel, I have used raw and brown sugars, and avoided coloring the mix.
- Since these are small, I use them on my feet, but they are fine to use on the rest of the body (skip the face).
- Store these in a resealable container.
