You can melt the base in a double boiler or on very low direct heat or the microwave. If you choose the microwave, make sure you cover the bowl you are melting the melt and pour (MP) with Saran Wrap to keep the excess moisture from evaporating out. Simply melt the base on high for one minute and stir the remaining, unmelted pieces in. If you use a double-boiler, simply bring the water to boil, add your melt and pour, cover, turn the heat on low and walk away. Use only low heating on electric heating sources. Check on the base periodically to see it it's melted. Never Leave unatteneded. If you add essential / fragrance oils, add it after the base is fully melted. Start with .25 ounce per pound of base and work up or down from there. Mix well. If you wish to add colorant, add the color when the base is melting. Just throw in 1/8 teaspoon to 1/4 teaspoon mica with the melting base and stir it in really well. Spray any "mica bubbles" that form on the top with rubbing alcohol. To use food coloring, simply put in 1 drop at a time to your melted base and color to preference. Too much can stain hands and towels, so be careful Pour into your soap mold - and spray the top with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any excess bubbles. After a few hours you can start to enjoy your home hand crafted soap!

Great Product! 12/06/2014
Easy to use! I melt in the microwave, add fragrance, and pour into the mold! Spritz alcohol to kill bubbles and let it set up. Smooth, creamy texture, good lather. Takes fragrances and colors well. I even mix in powdered herbs and flowers. I love this soap base. Its so hard to find one with out Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Propylene Glycol! Friends and family have been very pleased with the soap I have made for the.
