Melt & Pour Soap

I love using and making melt and pour soap!! It is cheaper then buying bar soap and you can add in your favorite oils! I buy my soap from Hobby Lobby when they go on sale. I typically use Lavender and Lemon essential oils. I tend to get eczema and the Lavender helps ease any irritation on my skin. I also like to use lemon or sweet orange because of their natural cleansing properties!

Supplies:

  • Melt & Pour Soap, I like using Shea Butter
  • Microwaveable glass bowl
  • Essential Oil of Your Choice
  • Microwave
  • Soap Mold, I use food-grade silicone molds

Instructions:

I normally will make 1 pound of melt and pour soap at a time, which will typically make enough for a whole six to eight cavities in a silicone mold.

  1. Cut the block of melt and pour soap into smaller pieces to fit into the microwaveable glass bowl.
  2. Microwave the soap in 30 second intervals.
  3. In between the intervals take the glass bowl out and stir the soap.
  4. Once the soap is completely melted add in your essential oils. I normally add 50 drops of essential oils for 1 pound of soap. Depending on your skin sensitivity you could consider added less or more than 50 drops.
  5. Stir the essential oils and soap together.
  6. Pour soap into the silicone mold.
  7. Once the soap has hardened and cooled you can carefully pop the soap out of each cavity.
  8. Enjoy!!
