How to make homemade Bar of Soap

Making homemade soap is a fun and rewarding craft that allows you to customize the ingredients and scents to your liking. Here's a simple recipe for making a basic bar of soap:


  • 2 cups of soap base (such as goat milk or shea butter)
  • 1 tablespoon of your preferred oil (such as olive or coconut)
  • 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oil (such as lavender or peppermint)
  • Soap mold
  • Rubbing alcohol


  1. Cut the soap base into small cubes and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the soap base in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it is completely melted.
  2. Add the oil and essential oil to the melted soap base and stir well to combine.
  3. Pour the mixture into a soap mold and tap the mold gently on a flat surface to remove any air bubbles.
  4. Spray the top of the soap with rubbing alcohol to help prevent air bubbles from forming on the surface.
  5. Allow the soap to cool and harden for at least 1-2 hours or until completely firm.
  6. Remove the soap from the mold and cut it into bars using a sharp knife.

Note: You can experiment with different soap bases, oils, and essential oils to create a variety of custom soap recipes. Also, be sure to handle the melted soap base with care, as it can be hot and cause burns.
