Ice Cream Soap without Stick next to Sprinkles

I can’t believe it’s the last day of this year’s 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. This has been so much fun and absolutely inspiring. If you’ve missed any of the days, you can find a complete list of projects right here.

Since we’re getting down to the wire on Christmas I wanted to end with a super easy stocking stuffer idea. Too often, we get caught up in finding the perfect gift that we forget all about the stockings. These DIY shimmery ice creams soaps are a super quick and easy gift you can whip up in time for Christmas.

In case you don’t have all of the materials, I’ve included links to all of them on Amazon so that you can get them quickly and finish off your list before the big day.

DIY Shimmery Ice Creams Soaps Materials


Block of Melt and Pour Goats Milk Soap

Step 1

First, measure out 4.5 oz. of your soap base.

I use an old cheese grater to grate my soap base so that it melts more quickly. This also makes it much easier to get the exact amount that you need.


Step 2

Next, place your 4.5 oz. of soap base into your pouring pot.


Step 3

Then measure out 2 oz. of unrefined shea butter and add it into your pouring pot as well.


Step 4

Add a half inch of water to a sauce pot and bring it to a boil.


Step 5

After your water is boiling, turn the heat down to medium and place your filled pouring pot inside.


Step 6

Next, melt your soap base and shea butter, stirring frequently.

Step 7

Once your soap and shea butter are melted, add in .1 oz of orange mica powder (or whatever color you want) and stir until combined.


If you use the set that I link to above, that’s an entire bag.


Step 8

Next, stir in 10-15 drops of orange essential oil.

Now, pour your melted base into your molds. Again, if not using the sticks, only fill them about halfway (just to the bottom of the stick opening).

Step 11

Add the lid to your mold to protect your soaps while they cool.

Step 12

Lastly, after your soaps have cooled completely, remove them from the molds and wrap in cellophane to gift!

You can absolutely freeze these if necessary to ensure that they come cleanly out of the molds. Let them cool about 20 minutes before freezing so that bubbles and other imperfections can settle beforehand.
