We melted the bars of soap that we bought at "Michaels" and we added color. We poured the melted soap into molds and added some fragrance (lavendar was our choice). I think they all look beautiful. I've got soap to last us all year through. The kids wrapped them up and are giving them as gifts. Proud as can be of course!
I've been using the soap myself this week and it actually smells wonderful!
