• 1 teaspoon Masculine Scents Mix essential oils
• 3 small jelly jars with lids OR plain juice glasses with plastic wrap to cover
• 1 cup glass marbles or smooth stones

1. Assemble a makeshift double boiler to melt the glycerin soap. Set the soap inside a clean, empty bimetal can that’s 16 ounces or larger, such as a coffee can. Set the can adrift in a 2-quart saucepan filled with three inches of boiling water. Turn the water to a simmer and let the soap melt. Remove the can for pouring with tongs or an oven mitt.

2. Divide the marbles among the three jars or glasses.

3. Add essential oil to melted soap and pour equal amounts into the three jars or glasses.

4. Allow the soap mixture to rest for 6 to 8 hours.
