How To Use Essential Oil In Soap (+ 6 Blends To Try!)

30


I often think of homemade soap as being expensive and complicated to make. The list of ingredients typically includes things like glycerin and lye and requires a special trip to a soapmaking store. But the beauty of melt-and-pour soap is that all the ingredients are premixed for you.

Not only can you skip the protective eyewear and rubber gloves (hallelujah), but making your own soap is as easy as chopping up your soap base and tossing it in the microwave for a few seconds. Then, add in a few optional ingredients like your favorite essential oils and some herbs or flower petals. Once poured, it hardens in minutes and can be used almost immediately.
