Most melt and pour soap bases come in a large block with 1 ounce cubes that can be cut/broken apart. Separate 20 of the cubes from the block of soap base. Chop or grate the soap cubes into smaller pieces and place half them in a double boiler over medium heat. Stir frequently until the soap is completely melted.
Add 2-3 drops of Vitamin E oil, the strawberry fragrance oil and a few drops of the red or pink soap colorant to the melted soap and whisk to combine.
Immediately, pour the melted “pink” soap into the heart-shaped molds, filling each mold only half way. It will harden within 2 minutes of pouring into the molds. If the soap hardens too fast, just place the double boiler back on the stove for a minute.
Add the other half of the soap cubes to your double boiler, and heat over medium until the soap is completely melted. Add 2-3 drops of vitamin E oil, the bubblegum flavoring oil and lilac soap colorant and stir well to combine. Be sure to stir really good or some of the soap that settles to the top will remain white in color. It will just give your soap a 3 layer look like mine if you don't mix well enough.
Pour into each heart mold and fill up to the top.
Wait 1 minute before gently placing a toy ring into the middle of each soap mold. The soap should be firm but not completely hardened.
Place the silicone mold in the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour. Remove the soap bars from their molds and place in an airtight container for storage up to 6 months or place in organza bags or a mason jar for gifting.
