Christmas Tree Soaps (Made in Microwave)
This easy DIY recipe to make homemade natural Christmas Tree Soaps is simple for a beginner. What I love is that they have a natural pine scent! An easy microwave recipe using only 3 ingredients!
These little soaps are great for:
- Guest bathroom
- Your bathroom
- Kitchen sink
- Wrap up as gifts
- Put in a spa/self-care gift basket
- Christmas tree silicone mold
- 12 oz. of melt and pour soap
- 30 drops pine essential oil (divided into 10 drops each)
- Soap colorants
Cut 12 cubes out of your melt and pour soap base (each cube should be 1 ounce). Make sure each cube is broken apart individually.
Place 4 cubes in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 35 seconds or until the soap is completely melted.
Remove from the microwave and add 4-5 drops of dark green soap colorant and 10 drops of pine essential oil. Stir together. Immediately pour the mixture into 2 of the tree molds.
Repeat the melting step. However, this time, add 4 to 5 drops of lime green soap colorant and 10 drops of essential oil. Stir together. Pour into 2 of the Christmas tree molds immediately.
Repeat the melting and coloring steps one more time with the remaining 4 soap cubes. Stir in 4 to 5 drops of teal green soap color and 10 drops of pine essential oil and stir. Pour into remaining tree soap molds.
Allow the soap to completely harden. This will take about 2 hours. For faster setting, refrigerate the soap for at least one hour.
Gently pop out the pine scented tree soaps from their molds.
