After-Garden Hand Soaps

If you're a Grandmother in my family and you're reading this, look away now!
I decided to do these quick glycerin hand soaps for mother's day. 
First you'll need to find some glycerin, like this. You can pick it up at any craft store.
Next melt the glycerin in intervals of 30 seconds in the microwave until it is liquefied.
I mixed in some loose leaf floral tea after melting to create a pumice type effect in the soap.
You can also add essential oils, but my soap already had a nice scent so I didn't want to mess with that.
Then pour into your soap molds, like these.
Let them harden after pouring, about 15-20 minutes and then remove from molds. 
I had a few different varieties of glycerin, clear and  cloudy white. 
I really like the way the white molds came out!
Finally, I wrapped them and they are ready to go!
