Soap Coloring: Do not use candle coloring or food coloring. They are not color fast and will turn your skin the color of the soap. Get the specially designed soap dyes that are color fast.
Scent of your choice.
If you bought the melt and pour, melt in a small sauce pan over low heat. Add a little of the dye at a time until it reaches the color you want and then add your scent.
Pour into molds and cool. Flip the mold over to pop them out, and you have soap.
