Diy Bar Soap

I love a good DIY project, especially the kind that are easy, affordable and very cute! These diy soap bars

 

check all of those requirements and can be customized to what you like. They use all natural, and

 

organic ingredients with some essential oils and dried herbs. Take a look...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Start by taking your 2 lb melt and pour soap base and cut in into cubes. The smaller you cut it the better it will melt in the double boiler.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add to your double boiler on medium heat and melt. Use your wooden skewer to stir it every so often.  The wooden skewer makes it nice after cleanup because you can just throw it away but if you don’t have one you can just use a spoon to mix.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the soap base is completely melted turn off the heat and add essential oils, carrier oil, and dried herbs or

 

flowers. I used dried lavender flowers and dried mint leaves. Stir to incorporate. Once it is all mixed together pour

 

the liquid into your silicone molds. This is where you can get creative. Use different silicon molds, or essential oils

 

to make it the way you like it.  These can become so fun and so cute!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once they are in your silicone molds put them in the fridge for 1 hour until set. Then pull them out and pop them

 

out of the molds.

 

Now it’s time to decorate your soap bars. Use scraps of fabric, ribbon, twine, whatever you like to make it cute.

 

Supplies You’ll Need

 

Preparation

  1. Start by taking your 2 lb melt and pour soap base and cut in into cubes.  Half of the soap block will yield 6 rectangle soap bars.  If you melt the whole thing it will yield 12 soap bars. The smaller you cut it the better it will melt in the double boiler.

  2. Add to your double boiler on medium heat and melt. Use your wooden skewer to stir it every so often.  The wooden skewer makes it nice after cleanup because you can just throw it away but if you don’t have one you can just use a spoon to mix.

  3. Once the soap base is completely melted turn off the heat and add essential oils, carrier oil, and dried herbs or flowers. I used dried lavender flowers and dried mint leaves. Stir to incorporate.

  4. Once it is all mixed together pour the liquid into your silicone molds. This is where you can get creative. Use different silicon molds, or essential oils to make it the way you like it.  These can become so fun and so cute!

  5. Once they are in your silicone molds put them in the fridge for 1 hour until set. Then pull them out and pop them out of the molds.

  6. Now it’s time to decorate your soap bars. Use scraps of fabric, ribbon, twine, whatever you like to make it cute.

These are seriously so cute for any occasion and the soap is really moisturizing!

 

For the honeycomb mold I added 2 TBSP raw honey and 2 TBSP oats in the soap base. Oats and honey are a great combination if you struggle with eczema or dry skin because they are really exfoliating and natural.
