The best handmade soap ideas

Exfoliate Your Skin With a Loofah Soap

Loofah soaps are extremely easy to make when you purchase a melt and pour soap base. All you need to do is melt the base and add any extras, cut the loofahs so they fit in the mold, then pour the soap on top of the loofah.

Lavender and Rosemary with Poppyseeds Soap Recipe

Gentle scrubby hand soap with lavender and rosemary essential oils, shea butter, and poppy seeds. This piece also includes a clever tip on reusing milk cartons as inexpensive soap moulds.

Lavender Oatmeal Soap

A cure for dry, itching, and otherwise sensitive skin, this soap recipe combines the awesome powers of lavender with the reparative qualities of oatmeal. To make, you’ll need goat’s milk soap base, quick cook oats, dried lavender flowers and lavender essential oil.

Exclusive ideas for handmade soap

Coconut Shea Butter Soap

If you’re looking for a homemade soap that will leave your skin feeling soft and luxurious, this shea butter soap is perfect! It also only requires two ingredients and a soap mold so it’s great for beginner soap makers!

Snowdrop Hot Process Soap

It’s a little too late to give fully cured cold process soap for Christmas, since that takes 4-6 weeks. That’s when hot process soap comes to the rescue! The additional heat speeds up the saponification process. Once the soap is placed into the mold to harden and cool, it’s ready to use after about one day.

Activated Charcoal Soap

Combine shea butter soap base, activated charcoal, and tea tree essential oil for a soap that’s perfect for acne prone skin.

Natural ingredients to add to handmade soap


    It is high in vitamin E, antioxidants and proteins. This oil is deeply soothing to the inflamed skin and helpful for chapped skin rashes. This gorgeous oil contributes to soap with stable lather, conditioning, moisturising. Overall it helps skin maintain a glowing complexion.

    Olive Oil

    Olive oil has been an all-star of the culinary and beauty worlds for centuries. It’s loaded with antioxidants and rich properties that leave your skin feeling silky smooth. Olive oil by itself can make the soap soft, but it's better to pair it with palm oil which hardens the bar, giving it a solid feel in your hands and allowing it to last longer.

  • Babassu Oil

    Properties: Cleansing, Adds Hardness, High Bubbles

A variety of top decorations can add more pizazz to soap. Petal toppings are creating by laying down dollops of soap and using the back of a spoon to create divots into the soap.

Oil and glycerin swirls are created by mixing a colorant into an oil or glycerin and swirled into the top of the soap (the soap sucks up the oil or glycerin, leaving behind traces of the colorant.) It’s also possible to place droplets of the mixture or pull off a Jackson-Pollock inspired design.
