Canada Day Maple Leaf Melt & Pour Soap

       Looking for a fun and easy craft to kick off this weekends holiday festivities? Look no further! This cool Canadian Maple Leaf soap only requires 4 ingredients and our Mold Market Maple Leaf Mold. Whether you're going to the celebration, or throwing it yourself, this is perfect for a party favor, hostess gift or just for your own Canada-themed Cleanliness!

This recipe makes 3 Maple Leaf Soaps

You will need:

15 ml Fragrance if desired


1.  Separate your melt and pour soap into 2 microwave-safe containers, one containing about the Low Sweat Clear and the other containing Low Sweat White . Melt one batch at a time starting with your clear soap in the microwave, in 30 second bursts.

2. Once your soap base is melted, add the ¼ tablespoon of Drama Queen Mica as well as your desired fragrance to the clear base only and stir vigorously to blend the powder and fragrance in fully.

We used Evergreen fragrance in the soap, which totally reminds us of a lush Canadian forest!

3. Begin by filling each of the cavities about 1/3 full with your red soap, then use up your white soap base by adding it to each mold on top of the red layer.

4.  Fill each mold to the top with one final layer of the red soap. The white soap will slowly float to the top, which should give you a gradient, ombre look about halfway down the soap.

5. Let the soap set for 12-24 hours before popping them out. You may want to allow a few weeks for curing to ensure a firm bar of soap but you can certainly use them the next day. 

There you have it! A wonderfully patriotic soap which you can feel proud or make and share.
