After approximately 4 hours after pouring, the mini-doses are removed from the mold, placed on a napkin and left to dry until the next day. They will not dry like an ordinary soap, they remain quite soft for easy use. They can best be stored in a larger glass jar.

Exfoliating, foamy and pleasantly scented, these mini-soaps containing glycerin and vegetable oil are used for body scrub in the shower/bath. Leaves skin clean and velvety. They are slightly soft and oily and break down quite easily during use. One piece is enough for a complete and thorough body scrub.

You can prepare several pieces, for example two doses of each type or 6 of the same type, according to your preferences.

Options and explanations:

  • we chose the clear soap base for this recipe, which ensures an interesting, translucent look, and also highlights the sugar crystals
  • sesame oil can be replaced with another heat-resistant vegetable oil: almond, apricot kernel, macadamia (the color of the oil influences the color of the final preparation)
  • the pigment, the alkanet powder and the chlorophyll are included for decorative purposes only, to color soaps; they can practically be removed from the recipe
  • brown sugar can be used instead of white sugar; it will influence the color of the preparation
  • instead of the proposed fragrance oils and essential oils, others can be used, according to preferences
