Step 2Next, microwave 300 grams of the freshly-cut cubes at 30 second intervals in a glass vessel, stirring after each interval till the aloe vera soap solution's melted. Alternatively, use a steel pan on very low heat, or use a double boiler (you can refer to step 1 of this article to find out how to set up a double boiler at home.) You don't want to overheat the aloe vera soap base, since that will burn it.
