Transparent Melt and Pour Soap with Jacob

Finished Jacob Melt and Pour Soap

Today’s recipe is using our Melt and Pour Soap. This project is so simple that I would recommend doing this with the kids for last minute Christmas gifts. For this particular soap, I decided to use our Jacob Fragrance Oil because my husband’s name is Jacob. I find myself always picking this fragrance for the name, but it’s our favorite since it smells so dang amazing! Jacob is a blend of evergreen woods, moss, patchouly and sensual musk. It is a deep, yet fresh scent and entirely masculine. Can I say yum?

One of the first batches of soap I ever made was with Jacob Fragrance Oil. I was so happy with it that I gave a sample to all the men in my life. Well, it became a joke among my husband’s family because whenever we would come over, his dad would say, “Oh, I took a shower with Jacob this morning!” Haha!

All jokes aside, Jacob is a great fragrance oil and I highly recommend that you try it out. Make some Jacob soap for all the Jacob’s you know!

Making this soap is easy as pie, in fact, I would say it is easier than making pie! Cut and weigh out the Melt and Pour Soap Base. I like to cut it into small irregular shapes to prevent any overheating of the Melt and Pour Soap Base. (Ask Taylor about overheated Melt and Pour Soap!) I put my chunks of soap into a microwave safe container and microwaved it until the soap was mostly melted. The remaining pieces of soap will melt if you stir the soap gently.
Once the soap is completely melted, you can add the color and the Jacob Fragrance Oil. To get this color, I added a few drops of premixed Lemon Yellow and Grape Colors. I was surprised by how fast it turned bright green! I expected it to take a lot more color, but it was only a few drops of each. Always start with less because you can always add more, but you can’t go back and remove color. Once you have the color and fragrance added and mixed in, you can pour your soap into the soap mold of your choice. Let it cool for about at least 1 hour and maybe longer until the soap is completely cool and solid. Now you should be able to pop it right out of the mold!
