DIY Gem Soap Gift Set

Gems and crystals make great gifts. If your budget doesn’t allow for the real deal, soap gems are a great alternative. The Silicone Gemstone Mold creates perfectly-sized bars to put in a gift box or bag.

These gem soaps are simple to make and great for beginners. They’re easy to customize with color and fragrance to suit your preference. If you’re giving them as gifts, a variety of colors look lovely in a gift box. Or, create the recipient’s birthstone for an extra thoughtful touch. To help make your gift wrapping pop, print this “You’re a Real Gem” label template on label paper and apply to your gift box.

Gem Melt and Pour Soap

For this tutorial, the gems are made in batches. Because the mold cavities are so small, it’s tricky to split one batch into different colors. We recommend making a batch of one color, allowing the soap to cool, removing them from the mold, and making another batch with a different color. The recipe below is written for one batch.

ONE: Chop 5 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into small even cubes. Place them in a small heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 10-20 second bursts. Because you’re working with such a small amount of soap, be careful to not burn it.

ONETHREE: Using the .15 CC Mini Scoops, add 2-4 scoops of mica into the melted soap. Some colorants require a little more to get a saturated color, so add 2 scoops at first and add more from there if you like. Use a spoon to mix it in. Because it’s not mixed with alcohol it will be a little clumpy at first, but will disperse into the soap with a little extra stirring.

TWOFOUR: Add 3 mL of the Jade Fragrance Oil into the soap. Use a spoon to mix in.

FOURFIVE: Add about 1/16th tsp. of Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter and stir in. Feel free to add more glitter if you’d like.

THREESIX: Pour the soap into each cavity of the mold. It’s best to pour the soap when it’s around 125 ° F or the glitter may sink to the bottom. After each pour, spritz the top of the soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to disperse any bubbles.

FIVESIXSEVEN: Allow the soap to fully cool and harden in the mold. This will take about an hour. Remove each gem from the mold. Repeat the process with a different color. Below is soap colored with Red Mica. Keep repeating the process until you’ve made a variety of colors to place into your gift box. The variety of colors is completely up to you!

SEVENEIGHTEIGHT: Once you’ve made all the soaps you want, print the “You’re a Real Gem” label on label paper and apply to your box. These gem soaps would also look great in a plastic bag tied with a ribbon. The labels could easily be made into hang tags for bags.
