1. Cut soap base into pieces that are approximately 1 inch x 1 inch.
Note: Cutting the base into smaller pieces helps ensure that melting is even. The number of pieces needed depends on the size and number of molds being used.
2. Place soap base pieces in a heat safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time, until fully melted.
3. Add essential oil and mix.
Tip: Not sure what essential oil to use? Remember, lavender is a great option for these homemade soap crayons as it promotes relaxation.
4. If planning to make multiple colors of homemade soap crayons, divide mixture into the appropriate number of bowls.
Tip: If soap mixture begins to harden before it can be separated and/or colored, simply pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to re-melt it.
5. Add mica colorant to each bowl and stir.
Tip: The more mica powder added to this homemade crayons recipes for toddlers the more intense the colors will be.
6. Pour colored mixture into molds and gently stir to remove any air bubbles.
7. Let homemade soap crayons harden for 3 to 4 hours and then remove from molds.
8. Store homemade soap crayons in an airtight container until ready to use to prevent “glycerin dew” and discoloration.
