We still make all our own soaps! It leaves the skin soft and a lot of skin issues cleared up for us! It took 3-4 weeks for our skin to clear up & we never turned back!
What you’ll need:
soap mold (I use silicone bakeware I bought in the baking section of Hobby Lobby.)
soap base, you can use any kind. Today I had double butter base on hand so I’m using it.
1 tbsp. jojoba oil, olive oil, or sweet almond oil
1-2 tbs. essential oil or soap scent.
squirt bottle with rubbing alcohol in it
food coloring (2 drops will color it.)
Cut base into cubes to fill a bowl.
Melt in microwave 30 seconds at a time until it is completely melted.
Add in oil, essential oil, vitamin E, glycerine and mix well with a spoon.
(if you are coloring your soap, add 2 drops now and mix well.)
Pour into mold
spray with alcohol to dissolve bubbles that rise to the surface.
Let sit 3-4 hours until center sets & hardens.
Wrap in Siran Wrap to keep it fresh until use.
I make ALL our soaps with this recipe, I just change oils, soap base, scents, & colors.
The reason it works so well on the skin is because you are putting in all the skin-healthy ingredients many manufacturing companies have mostly removed.
Tips I found helpful:
Hobby Lobby and Michaels both carry soap making products.
Both have apps for 40% coupons
To save more money, my hubby often came with me and checked out with a base with his own app 40% off coupon.
Hobby lobby allows you to use their coupon one DAILY instead of weekly!
If your soap seems to stick (a problem I normally don’t have with silicone) line it with a drop of mineral oil and rub it around the mold.
