How to Make Homemade Candy Cane Soap


I love this craft idea which I think would make a wonderful gift.  I found this idea at the Celebrations website; however, here are the instructions:


What You Will Need:

–   1 pound of clear glycerine soap (which you can find at a craft store)

–   Soap Molds

–   Peppermint Oil



What You Will need to do:

1.  Place candy canes in a freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin or hands.  Place crushed candy canes on the bottom of the soap molds. It’s easy to gage by putting one candy cane per piece of soap.


2.   Cut the glycerine soap into little pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl.


3.   Microwave glycerine in 30 second intervals, mixing until melted.  Mix in 3-4 drops of peppermint oil.


4.   Pour glycerine in soap molds, over crushed candy canes. Pour slowly so candy canes don’t shift.  If candy canes move around too much while you pouring the soap, use a toothpick to move the candy cane pieces back into place.


5.   Allow soap to completely harden before removing from molds.
