This is a quick and easy Valentine's Day or Mother's Day Soap recipe!  You'll be surprised just how simple it is to make these gorgeous, love sprinkled soaps!



  • Microwave safe jugs - to hold 500ml
  • Stirring stick, spoon or spatula
  • Knife and board to dice the soap


  • Firstly make three trays of hearts!  Our graphic shows the three colours in one pour; this is for demonstration purposes only.
  • Each soap bar requires approximately 20 hearts to have them fairly closely packed.

  • It is better to make all one colour, unmould and repeat for the other colours.
  • I like to allow 200 - 230g per pour as a guide, depending on how full you want to make the hearts.  The ones in this project were poured to the rim of the mould and then quickly levelled off with a blunt knife.  You can remelt any left over soap scrapings.
  • Colour 1 = Clear Soap and 3+ pigment scoops of Candy Pink Mica - just use enough mica to ensure you have a good depth of colour.
  • Colour 2 = White Soap with 2+ Pigment Scoops Candy Pink Mica - colour until you have a colour tone you are happy with.
  • Colour 3 = White Soap = NO colour at all.
  • Unmould each colour and set aside in colours ready for the embed layer.

  • Chop 350g White Melt & Pour Soap Base in 2 - 3 cm cubes.
  • Place in the microwave safe jug, and melt in short bursts until liquid. 
  • Stir to dissolve any small pieces that remain.
  • Add a pinch of Candy Pink Mica (or more if you want a darker colour) and stir to combine.
  • Add 3 - 5ml (¾ teaspoon) Fragrance Oil and stir well.
  • Spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol to remove any surface bubbles and then pour into the mould cavities
    leaving ½ cm head room at the top.

Pour low down to the mould and then spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol to remove any surface bubbles and leave to set.

  • Ensure that your heart embeds are sitting UPSIDE DOWN on your work surface
  • Check the surface of the soap with your fingertip.  Press gently!  If it is firm it is time to prepare and pour the clear layer.
  • Dice 150g Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base and place in the small jug.
  • Heat in short bursts until liquid.

  • Spritz the set soap well with Isopropyl Alcohol and then spritz the hearts sitting on the bench - you are spritzing the BASES of the hearts, not the tops!
  • Arrange approximately 12 hearts on the surface of your first soap - remember, you are placing the spritzed side of the soap down on top of the spritzed soap - this  makes them adhere well.  Leave a little space for the rest of the hearts after your initial pour. 
  • Pour the hot, clear soap over the top to just below the rim of the mould cavities.
  • Spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol immediately.
  • Pop in the remaining hearts to fill the gaps and then pour hot soap over the surface again.
  • Spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol immediately.

  • Repeat for another batch of soap.
