Use these directions, shared by a visitor named Judy, and learn how you can make personalized bars of soap. You can put a special message inside each bar using beads and charms.


  • Clear Glycerin (cut into small pieces)
  • Molds (hearts, flowers, shells, etc)
  • Small Charms (smaller than the molds)
  • Fragrance (optional)
  • Coloring (optional)

Place the pieces of glycerin in a styrofoam cup and place it in the microwave. Microwave at high for 30 second intervals until melted. Fill the mold almost half full with the glycerin and let it set. Place charm on that half and fill up the mold with the rest of the glycerin (you will more than likely have to reheat it).

Pop out when firm. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place in a soap dish along with three or four other soaps you have made. Makes a lovely gift to a young girl or teenager.

Note from Sherri: If you do not have molds to use, you can make a round bar of soap using a small bathroom cup as a mold.
