You can make your own adorable St. Patrick's Day soaps. They are fun little St. Patrick's Day decorations for your home or you can also give them as cute little DIY gifts for kids or as St. Patrick's Day party favors.

Check my blog for even more fun St. Patrick's Day ideas.
First gather your supplies.
Invest in a block of glycerin soap base and you can use it all year to make fun little seasonal soaps!  

Cut your soap block into squares about 1” x1 “ in size, this will help it melt fast and evenly. I usually eyeball the size of the mold to determine how many pieces I need to fill it, then add 1 or 2 for good measure. Pop your blocks into a large saucepan over medium heat and stir frequently until it is completely melted.

Remove soap from heat and quickly stir in your desired amount of green glitter (about 1 tsp) and lime essential oil, which is naturally antibacterial, to your desired scent strength (about 30 drops).
Place a coin in each mold and and then pour the soap mixture over the coins until each mold cup is full.

Let sit until fully hardened, at least an hour. Then remove your soaps carefully from the mold and place on soap dishes or put in party bags.

Suggested materials:
