Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup melt and pour soap (like olive oil, hemp or goat milk)
  • 3-4 drops of peppermint essential oil*
  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • Red Mica colorant (optional)

Directions

  1. In a double boiler, melt your soap. If you do not have a double boiler, microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring in between until melted.
  2. Mix in your coconut oil until combined and add your peppermint essential oil.
  3. Separate into two separate bowls, adding your mica into one bowl and mix until color is uniform.
  4. Add ½ cup of sugar to each bowl, doing one bowl at a time. Mix until well combined. You are looking for a slushy like consistency.
  5. Pour into your silicone molds and allow to dry for 1-2 hours before unmolding. If your sugar and soap mixture gets too thick, microwave on 10 second bursts until you are able to pour.
