Hi, I'm Angharad Jones from The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica, California, and I'm here to talk about handmade glycerin soap recipes. So glycerin soap is a melt and pour base that you purchase by the pound. It comes, with us we sell it in two different varieties, goat's milk or glycerin which is transparent. Both of them you just chop up and melt either in your microwave or in a double boiler. Once you have your base, you're going to choose a scent and a colorant and maybe a floral additive of some sort like a lavender. We highly suggest that everything you use is meant specifically for soap rather than maybe a food grade product, especially when it comes to colorants and things like that, you may end up staining your skin or irritating it. So stick to things that are meant specifically to be in soap and a couple of suggestions we have for recipes are lavender, lavender scent with some lavender buds in a sweet little purple color or a more tropical version might be mango with a little yellow scent and some yellow flowers and then you can choose a mold that suits as well. This is our gnome mold for instance. He might be better with more Christmasy scents like fir with a green coloring or something sort of fun for the Summer for kids. So you know once you have got your base and your understanding of your ingredients you can kind of make whatever recipe you want. So just make sure you don't use more than an ounce of your scent per pound of soap and that everything is safe for skin. So this is Angharad Jones with The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica, California. Happy crafting.
