Optional: pink sea salt and dry oatmeal
We whipped them up using glycerin and goat's-milk soap-making kits (according to the instructions on the package), glycerin soap color, and flexible silicone molds. (Optional: Dress up the pale bars with pink sea salt and the orange ones with exfoliating dry oatmeal.)
Once the bars were ready to be released from the forms (which takes only about an hour), we stacked them in cupcake wrappers and packed three sets in a clear gold-topped box worthy of the treasures inside.
