3 DIY Melt and Pour Soap Recipes

5:00:00 AM


Lately I have been seriously obsessive about the soap making possess and I have come up with three lovely soap combinations for the melt and pour method. Now, if you are a beginner to soap making and you want a thoughtful, all-natural and adorable gift to give to your family, this holiday, then look no further.

Ginger Lemongrass Soap

I love these two scent. It's so soothing, especially when I'm stressed out or just need a pick me up.



4 oz olive oil soap base
1 ml lemongrass essential oil
1 ml lemongrass fragrance oil
dried ginger shreds

Benefits of main ingredients
  • Lemongrass: it is a great for oily skin, it is skin toning cleaner and is considered a natural deodorant.
  • Ginger: it is great for reducing cellulite, it rejuvenates the skin and it fades scars.
  • Olive Oil: it contains three main antioxidants and it does not clog your pores.

Lavender Coffee Soap

This scent reminds me of the time I made coffee lavender latte. It was not only delicious but smelt amazing...yummy!



4 oz shea butter soap base
1 ml lavender essential oil
1 ml lavender fragrance oil
fresh coffee grinds

Benefits of main ingredients

  • Lavender: it helps to reduce anxiety and emotional stress, it heals burns and wounds, it can improves sleep, it restores skin complexion and reduces acne and helps in slowing of aging.
  • Coffee: it can be used as a skin exfoliant, it can also soften your skin, reduces cellulite, tighten and brighten the skin and it is an anti-inflammatory.
  • Shear Butter: it is moisturizing, it reduces inflammation and smoothens the skin.



Goat Milk Charcoal Soap

Charcoal is the OG of beauty spa day for me. I take the pills, I use the face mask and of course the soap.



26 oz goat milk soap base
1/2 teaspoon activated charcoal
2 TBSP rubbing alcohol
0.4 oz any essential oil of choice

Benefits of main ingredient

  • Activated Charcoal: it makes your pores smaller and cleaner, it is great for oily skin, it treat acne, it deep cleans your skin and soothe and heal bites, cuts and skin irritations.
  • Goat Milk: it is loaded with essentials, it treats acne and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Method:
- Cut soap base into 1 inch cubes for easier melting.
- Place cubes into a microwave safe bowl then cover with a plastic wrap and heat for 20-30 seconds intervals until melted. Each time remove bowl from microwave and stir and replace plastic wrap.

NB// The plastic wrap is to ensure that the soap base doesn't dry out.

- Stir in essential and fragrance oils properly.

NB// Not properly mixing in your oils will make it settle at the top of your soap, when harden, causing a oily soap bar. It also will shorten it's shelf life.


- Add exfoliant (coffee, ginger, etc) and mix well. Mix your charcoal with alcohol BEFORE you add it to your soap base.

NB// Not mixing your charcoal with alcohol will create charcoal clumps in your soap. The alcohol will evaporate from your soap during the curing process.

-Pour mixture into your soap molds.
-Spray the top with rubbing alcohol to remove surface tension (air bubbles).
-Let your soap sit for 24 hours or 1 hour in the fridge to cure.
