Make a Bar of Money Soap

Make up a batch of money soap to help bring prosperity your way.

You'll need the following items:

Glycerin soap base
 Green food coloring
 Equal parts three of the following:

Bay leaf
•Basil
•Chamomile
•Clover
•Cinquefoil
•Tonka bean
•Myrtle
•Apple blossom
•Sunflower
•Pennyroyal


Optional:

•A shredded dollar bill
•Gold flakes


Melt the soap base in a double boiler, following manufacturer's instructions. Select your three herbs and blend together equal parts. Use a mortar and pestle to grind them down as much as possible. Add them into your melted soap. Add one or two drops of green food coloring -- but don't overdo it, because a little food coloring goes a long way!

If you'd like to use gold flakes or strips of a shredded dollar bill, add them now.

Pour melted soap into prepared molds, and place them in a cool place to harden. Allow soaps to sit at least twenty-four hours before removing from the molds. Wash your hands with this soap to bring prosperity into your life, or use in a ritual bath. Another fun idea is to wrap the soaps in paper, tie with a pretty ribbon or piece of raffia, and give them as gifts to friends.
