What I Used:

Cranberry Pomegranate Soaps - DIY Valentine's Day Gift IdeaNote: If you’re using a metal mold/cookie pan, start by lightly greasing it with cooking spray or shortening – don’t skip this key step or else your soap will stay stuck inside of your mold forever! I generally prefer to use silicone molds for this very reason, but this cute metal cookie pan was just begging me to use it for a batch of Valentine’s Day themed soaps!

Cranberry Pomegranate Valentine's Day Soap Gift IdeaI used about 1 lb (or half of the block) of soap base to make a dozen small soaps. The block of goat’s milk soap base cuts easily with a kitchen knife, so I slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt it in the microwave in 20-30 second increments. Be sure to stir well after each microwave session to ensure that the soap is completely melted! For 1 lb of soap, I generally microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds.

When the soap base is completely melted, stir in the wine colorant, 5 drops each of the cranberry and pomegranate fragrance oils, and a small amount of the crystal mica powder. Pour the mixture into the soap molds/cookie pan and allow to sit undisturbed until cool and firm (at least 30-60 minutes depending on temperature/humidity).

Cranberry Pomegranate Heart Soaps for Valentine's DayPlace a couple of the soaps into a cellophane bag, tie it with a ribbon, and they’re all ready for gifting! Easy peasy!

  1. Hello I have the same pan and for the life of me I can’t get my soap oUT and I uses grease any other suggestions but yours are really pretty

    1. So sorry to hear that, Karen! It is definitely a lot harder to remove the soaps from a metal pan vs a silicone pan, but I have had luck with putting the pan in the freezer for a bit. That seems to help mine pop out when it’s been greased and it’s still hanging on! Best of luck!

  2. Pomegranate is a good source of vitamin C and really good for skin and health. Making soap with it, sounds really interesting. I’m pretty sure the soap going to be really good. Definitely going to try!
