Citrus & Calendula Soap

You will need:
1 # M & P transparent soap base
A handful of calendula petals (dried) , about 1/4 cup
15 drops of yellow food coloring
3/4 tsp. grapefruit EO
1/2 tsp. tangerine EO
1 TBSP melted shea butter ..melted separately

Melt the soap base and at the same time melt the shea butter in a custard cup placed in a pan of boiling water or in the microwave. Add calendula petals to the melted base, a few drops of yellow food coloring, the EO and then the melted shea butter. Try to have this the same temp as the melt and
pour. Keep stirring the soap/shea butter mixture. As it starts to set up spoon into heart molds. ( By spooning you have more control how many of the calendula leaves go into each mold.) I like to let my molds set at room temp until them are skimmed over fairly firm then I chill them in the freezer for about a half hour before removing them from the mold and place them on a rack to finish drying completely.
This is a very pretty soap. Makes 8 heart soaps. Enjoy!!!!
*****By stirring the soap/shea butter mixture as it cools the butter will not float to the top and make little circles of butter which might look like mold to those that donít know.
