  • glass or plastic measuring cup
  • small baking sheet


  • Start by cutting your soap base into cubes. Put the desired amount of cubes into a microwaveable measuring cup (glass works great, but we used plastic this time). Microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Continue microwaving in 10-second intervals until completely melted.

  • Stir in a few pinches of glitter.
  • Add drops of soap coloring until you reach the desired tint! (We used inexpensive soap fragrance drops from the craft store. You can use essential oils as well. Add a few drops, stir, and continue until your soap recipe smells nice and sweet. We used a mixed berry scent.)

If you only want to make amulet soaps you can stick with lilac for your soap coloring, but if you’d like to make soaps to match Amber and Ruby you can pick up seafoam green and peach too!
