Kiss Naturals: DIY Soap Making Kit (Review & Giveaway)

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always enjoyed making homemade gifts for family and friends during the holiday season. Whether it was a card, an ornament, a scrapbook/recipe book, I was always making something. In recent years, especially those following the birth of my son, my creative juices haven't been flowing as freely. I still enjoy creating gifts that express just how much I truly love and appreciate the person I plan to give it to, but I have very little extra time to put into crafting gifts, these days.

As it turns out, I have been able to make some cute little gifts for friends this Christmas, thanks to Kiss Naturals. Kiss Naturals is based out of Canada, and creates one of a kind DIY craft kits. The neat thing about these kits, is that you can purchase one to use to create gifts for others, or just gift the craft kit! Kiss Naturals' main goal is to give their customers everything they need to make natural products that we use every day, at an affordable price.

Kiss Naturals has some really neat kits available, but I chose to give the DIY Soap Making Kit a try. I have never made homemade soap before, and was excited to test the waters.

My Kiss Naturals DIY Soap Making Kit! Doesn't it look pretty in its packaging?

The Kiss Naturals DIY Soap Making Kit Contains:
1 Fun Shaped Mold
2 Bars of unscented Glycerin Soap
2 Scented Oils for Fragrance
1 Dropper
1 Spatula

The contents of the Soap Kit...

Making the soap was a super quick, and simple process. All of the instructions for making the soap are printed on the inside of the box that the kit is packaged in- so don't throw that away! 

The 4- Step soap making process is outlined on the box...

The first step in creating your own soap from this awesome kit, is to unwrap one of the bars of glycerin soap, which is clear, and unscented. Place it in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave in 30 second increments, until the bar is fully melted. I had to microwave mine for about 1 1/2 minutes before it was melted all the way. Just a word of caution- the melted soap will be very hot, and I found out the hard way, that it splatters. Wear an apron, and use caution when moving the bowl of hot liquid soap. If you prefer not to microwave the soap bar, you can melt it in a pot, on your stovetop.

Once the soap bar has been fully melted, carefully remove it, and place it on your counter, table, or a heat resistant surface. Using the dropper that comes with your kit, carefully drop between 20 and 25 drops of scented oil (also provided it your kit). I chose to use the grapefruit oil (I also received oraange). I dropped the oil in, and gave it a quick stir.

Here are the oils that came with my kit...

The oil has been carefully dropped into the melted soap and gently stirred.

If you like, you can add a little bit of food coloring to the melted mixture to add a pop of color to your soap. I decided to use red food coloring, since my mold consisted of little heart shapes.

The added food coloring (about 2 drops)...

Just a note- work quickly from the time you take the melted soap out of the microwave to the time you pour it into the molds. This will start to thicken up, quickly- and will get gloppy on you if you putz around. Finally, pour the hot, melted soap into the mold provided in the kit. Mine was already thickening, and I wasn't at a place where I could keep heating it back up in the microwave, so that's why mine looks so messy in the photo.

Liquid soap is poured into the molds, and now all I have to do is wait for it to harden...

As I waited on the soap to harden and cool, I placed my bowl and spoon in the sink, and ran hot water over them, to get the hardened soap off of them. I cleaned up my little mess, and put the unused items away for my next soap making adventure. About twenty minutes later, the mold was cool to the touch, and my soaps were ready to make their first appearance as little hearts. I didn't even need to use the little spatula tool, as the soaps popped right out of the mold. In the end, I wound up with eight little heart shaped soaps, which smell lovely and are just adorable!

Cute, right!?

I still ahve to trim up the edges of my soaps, since I was a little too messy in my soap making trial run, but overall, I'd say my first try was a great success! I'm not sure who I'll give these soaps to just yet, but I know for certain that they'd look so cute, placed inside a little organza bag, and placed in a Christmas stocking, or gifted to someone I want to show my appreciation to this holiday season.
