How to Make 

Visual Guide  

  1. First, prepare your Soap Base. Cut 500g of SoapLab’s Transparent Soap Base into little cubes, the smaller the cubes the faster it will melt. 

  2. Place the cubes in a microwavable container. Place container in the microwave. Melt them at 20 seconds interval. Check during each intervals, this is to avoid your soap from getting burnt. 

  3. Once soap base is ready and melted, add in 5g of Orange Juice Fragrance Oil into the melted soap base. Use a pipette for ease measuring & dispensing.

  4. Next, add in Frankincense Essential Oil into the mixture. Again, use a pipette if necessary.

  5. Add in premixed Sparkle Silver into the mixing container. Then, mix everything with a spatula. 

  6. Next, split soap mixture into two equal parts. Pour slowly as soap might still be warm at this point. 

  7. Add in Green Mica that  has been diluted with some glycerin into container 1. Do not mix, slowly swirl container to allow mica to be slightly dispersed in soap. 

  8. Next, add in premixed Synstar Red Mica in soap mixture in container 2. Again, do not mix, just swirl. 

  9. Next, grab your molds and Rubbing Alcohol. Spray the mold with alcohol in order to provide a sterile surface, ideal for your solid soap to sit in. Pour soap mixture from both containers into their respective mold then spray again with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. 

  10. Once harden, remove soap from mold like so. 

  11. Cut soap into 5 equal parts using a normal kitchen knife. Then, take one part and cut it in half. 

  12. Cut soap at an angel repeatedly. The more irregular it gets, the better. 

  13. Repeat steps 8 to 10 with the other block of soap to get a different colour of crystal soap. Then soap is ready to use (:
