How to Make Your Own Zero Waste Bar Soap

How to Make Your Own Zero Waste Bar Soap

Making your own soap can be intimidating, but we have the perfect beginner's tutorial for you! It is so rewarding making your own soaps, knowing exactly what ingredients are going into it and onto you and your family's skin. You'll never want to buy soap from the store again!

Let's get to it!

The soap we are about to make is extremely easy and kid-friendly!

Tools: 

  • Soap Mold (We use a silicone mold in a wooden box. You can find it here!)
  • Crinkle Cutter (The link above provides the silicone mold as well as the cutters)
  • Spatula
  • Pouring pot  (You can find it here!) You want this to be different than the one you use to cook food, because it's super hard to get 100% clean.

Ingredients:

You can use any soap base but goats milk soap is our favorite! It is one of the most gentle soaps you can use. It is safe for babies and those with sensitive skin. When it's handmade using a cold process method, it is also gentle on the environment. Some examples of different soap bases are: goats milk, shea butter olive oil & aloe vera.
 There is no rule that you need to technically add anything to your melt and pour soap base, but feel free to add whatever combinations your heart desires. There is no one way to make soap this way. 

Instructions:

Step 1:Cut up the Goats Milk Soap Base into cubes and place in your pouring pot and heat over medium high heat until completely melted.
Step 2:Add desired amount of lavender buds, lavender essential oil and oats (pulse oats in blender for a few seconds before adding). We recommend a handful of each. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together.
Step 3: Pour the mixture into the silicone soap mold. Leave to set for a minimum of an hour before removing from the mold. (We let ours sit overnight to be safe.)
Pro tip: Spritz the top of the soap mixture with a bit of rubbing alcohol to get rid of the bubbles!
Step 4: Turn silicone mold upside down and remove from wooden box. Gently pull sides of the mold from the soap to loosen until the soap is free. 
Step 5: Use your crinkle cutter or knife to cut soap into desired size.


We hope you loved this recipe as much as we do!
