Homemade soap can be a fun project with squeaky clean results! This DIY pink peppermint glycerin soap is great as a gift for your loved ones (but be sure to keep a few for yourself). This could be one of the easiest ways to make soap that you'll come across. It's as easy as melting, stirring, pouring and waiting for your pretty soap to solidify.
Glycerin soap is super-moisturizing and if you find the right type, it can be all-natural without any harsh or man-made ingredients. I found a bag of glycerin chunks, as well as the plastic molds, at a local craft store.
I added a little color for a pretty pink tint and pure peppermint essential oil (optional) for a fresh fragrance that can help give you a bit of an energy boost to start your day!
Crush up four to six small candy canes or hard peppermint candies. Follow the soap-making instructions below, but when the soap has solidified (but not completely), sprinkle the crushed candy over the bottoms of the soap while still in the molds. Press down very gently. Allow the soap to continue to harden completely before removing from the molds.
Get squeaky clean!
