Gently stir in almond oil, then essential oils, starting  with 10 drops, keep adding until it smells good to your senses.

Try to mold mixture with your hands, it should hold together like a snowball and crumble just slightly. If it is too dry add 1-2 tsp. of water.

Press the mixture into your molds, pushing it into the bottom and corners. I used mini muffin tins to mold mine, if you use metal or something that you cannot squeeze to release line it in plastic wrap first an they will pop right out.

Dry overnight, remove from mold gently.

Place in an airtight container.

To use: pop one or two under running water and let it dissolve.
