Servings: 27 bars


  • Alcohol in a Small Spray Bottle
  • Kitchen Scales
  • Glass Measuring Jug
  • Bamboo or Metal Skewer
  • Paper Towel


  • 70 g Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • 20-25 drops Essential Oil
  • 2 drops Soap Coloring
  • 1 Macaron Baking Mat


  • Use a set of kitchen scales to measure out 70g of melt & pour soap.
  • Cut up your soap into small cubes (for easy melting) and then place them in a glass measuring jug.  Melt in the microwave in short bursts of 30 seconds, stirring well in between.
    Repeat until your soap is melted (watch it carefully, don’t let it boil!).
  • Add the soap coloring and essential oils.  Stir well with a skewer until the essential oils are well combined and you have an even color. If your soap mixture has lots of bubbles in it, spray the surface with alcohol and then gently stir again to get rid of the bubbles.
  • With your jug of melted soap in one hand, and your spray bottle of alcohol in the other, very carefully pour a small amount of soap mixture into a template on the macaron mat. Immediately spray the soap with alcohol, doing so will help your soap spread out to the edges of the template.
    Continue pouring and spraying until all templates on the macaron mat have been filled.
  • If there are bubbles present on the surface of your soap, a couple of sprays of alcohol should remedy this.
  • Any overflow of soap outside the lines of the templates can be cut or snapped off once the soap has hardened.
  • Set your soap aside to harden overnight.
  • To release your soap gently bend back the silicone mat and your soap bars should pop right off.
