DIY Soap Bars Recipe
If you want to know how to make soap without lye than you will love this homemade soap recipe. This all natural soap will smell so good and leave your skin so soft that you may want to keep it all to yourself. But if you are the sharing type you can give a few DIY soap bars to your friends.
Directions for How to Make Soap at Home
- Gather your soap ingredients.
- Cut the shea butter soap base in half. Place one of the halves back in the container. You will only need one half of the package, you can save the other half for later. Or if you prefer to make more you can use it all but remember to double the rest of the ingredients in this soap making recipe.
- Continue to cut the “squares” that are already scored into the soap and place in a medium microwave-safe bowl. (I used a large Pyrex measuring cup).
- Microwave the shea butter base until completely melted (around 30 seconds, depending on your microwave). Next, remove from microwave and stir.
- Add 3 drops of the red soap colorant and 6 drops of yellow soap colorant. Stir to combine. You can add more red colorant if you want a darker orange soap. Stir well to distribute the color.
- Add the vitamin E oil and stir well.
- Then add the pumpkin pie spice and stir to incorporate. You will want to make sure that your soap base is the suspension formula. This will allow the pumpkin pie spice to be distributed throughout each soap bar. If you aren’t using the suspension formula you risk the pumpkin pie spice settling at the bottom of your DIY soap bars.
- Pour the soap mixture evenly into your soap molds.
- Allow the DIY soap bars to harden at room temperature for at least 2 hours. If you don’t want to wait you can speed up the process by chilling your handmade soap for 1 hour.
- Once your DIY soap bars are fully hardened, gently pop out each soap bar from the molds and ENJOY!
