Then remove the warmed soap base and stir it well using a craft stick.Next, stir in the sugar and the sweet almond oil. Make sure that you stir this well.In a small bowl, combine the rubbing oil and the mica powders stirring until well blended. Then stir in the soap and sugar mixture from the measuring cup until blended.(If the mixture is starting to harden, heat reheat it for ten seconds.)Lastly, stir in the fragrance and essential oils.
Pour the soap mixture into the molds. Allow this to set until hard, about two hours. Then you can remove the soap from the molds and cut into quarters if desired.
