How to make Marbled Spiced Fig Loaf Soap

Autumn is well and truly here- so to ward off the chilly weather with this soothing and aromatic Spiced Fig soap. Made with our Crystal Oatmeal and Shea soap base, this bar is soothing and luxurious to keep dry winter skin at bay.

YOU WILL NEED:

STEP 1

Unbox the Crystal Oatmeal and Shea, and chop into small chunks, around 1 inch square. Place in a microwavable container.

STEP 2

Melt the base in a microwave for 3 minutes, then in 30 second blasts until melted throughout.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, mix the purple pigment with a little glycerin. This helps the pigment disperse better in the soap base and avoids speckling!

STEP 4

Separate the melted soap base into two containers, and mix the pigment/glycerin mixture into one of the containers.

STEP 5

Cut two small rectangles from sturdy cardboard, and place into a soap loaf mould, holding securely to create a seal. Spray the mould well. Pour the purple base into the middle section and white into the other two sections.

STEP 6

Remove the dividers, and gently swirl the colours together for a short time. This step can get messy, so ensure you have a protective covering on your workspace.

STEP 7

Allow the soap loaf the set overnight. When set, slice into the desired size.
