Finished Calendula Petals Soap

Good morning! I’m sure everyone has read the “About Katy” section and discovered that I am new to this whole soap making business. So when Taylor came to me with this project, I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty nervous. Now that I’m writing this, I can’t believe I was worried. Using Melt and Pour Soap is one of the easiest things I have done yet. I used some of the White Melt and Pour Soap and Transparent Melt and Pour Soap and I’m thrilled with how it turned out.

On the Calendula Petals I put Q.S. meaning quantity sufficient. In all honesty, I didn’t weigh the Calendula Petals that I put in. I could say I probably put in around a tablespoon of Calendula Petals but it could have been a little more, it could have been a little less. It all depends on what you want your soap to look like. I made this a layered soap because I wanted to be able to see the Calendula Petals clearly but still have it smooth looking on all sides.

To start: I heated the 12 ounces of Transparent Melt and Pour Soap and added 0.12 ounces of the Pina Smoothie Fragrance Oil and poured it into the mold. Let it cool for about 15-20 minutes in between each layer.

Next I heated 12 ounces of the White Melt and Pour Soap, added 0.12 ounces fragrance oil and the Calendula Petals, then poured that into the mold. Again, wait 15-20 minutes for it to cool. Last, but not least, I heated 6 ounces of White Melt and Pour Soap and added 0.06 ounces Pina Smoothie Fragrance Oil and poured it on top. I did the last 6 ounces of White Melt and Pour Soap because I wanted to bottom of the soap to be smooth and all white rather than having Calendula Petals poke out.

Once I was finished I allowed the soap to cool overnight. The following morning I popped it out of the mold and cut it. I think this soap looks beautiful and I can’t wait to give some to my family and friends.
