How to Make Easter Egg Soap
- Add several inches of water to a double boiler or large pan and heat to a boil. If you’re not using a double boiler, place a jar ring on the bottom of your pan.
- While the water is warming, drill or cut a hole in the large end of the plastic egg. The hole should be big enough you can pour in the soap.
- Put a small piece of Duck tape over the tiny air hole that was already in the egg.
- Cut the soap in to smaller chunks and place in a glass jar.
- Place the jar in the double boiler or on the jar ring and turn the water on to heat.
- When the soap starts to look a little melty, use a hot pad and lift the jar just out of the water. Swish it around a bit to help distribute the heat. Place back in the water and repeat until it’s smooth.
- Remove the jar from the pan and add coloring and a few drops of essential oil, if desired. Sir until smooth.
- Carefully pour the soap into the hole you cut in the plastic eggs. You can fill to the top, or add a little for creating layers.
- Layers: If you want striped/layered eggs, pour some soap as deep as you’d like the stripe to be. Let that soap cool a little, until it starts to set up a little. Start the soap warming process again and then color the soap a different color. Create as many layers as you’d like, letting the soap completely cool between each layer.
- When cool, open the eggs and remove the soap!
Tip: if you’re having trouble getting your soap out, put the eggs in the freezer for 15 minutes. As the plastic warms back up, it will expand slightly, making your job easier.
