Making This Goats Milk Melt and Pour DIY Soap Bar
Goat milk soap is well known for its skin-loving qualities and creamy lather. Doesn’t that just sound delightfully nourishing?
Soap Bar Tip
Using goats milk melt and pour soap means you don’t need to work with lye which is risky and potentially dangerous. Plus, working with lye adds more steps and ups the difficulty level.
I’m all about quick and simple, so I love this method!
DIY Soap Bar Supplies Needed
This beautiful Christmas soap is soooo simple to make and gives you that crafty, artisan feel without the hassle or risk of using lye.
Don’t get me wrong, using lye can be a fun and rewarding experience, but as moms know, getting enough time alone to actually do that method is (nearly) impossible.
- goats milk melt and pour base – this is the base of this recipe.
- frankincense essential oil – adds a lovely scent as well as the skin benefitting properties of frankincense.
- argan oil – helps nourish and moisturize the skin.
- white cosmetic glitter – optional, adds that fun sparkly look.
- Silicone snowflake mold
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol – helps to remove air bubbles from the bars.
- microwave-safe measuring cup
How to Make this DIY Christmas Soap
Make these beautiful, decorative bars with love right in your home kitchen! Here’s how!
Cut the goat’s milk base into 1” cubes and add to a microwave-safe measuring cup.
Melt in 30-second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted.
Add argan and frankincense oils.
Mix in the white cosmetic glitter.
Spray bottom of mold with rubbing alcohol.
Carefully add the mixture into the mold until it reaches the top.
Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles.
Allow to harden completely, or about 24 hours. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
That’s it! Easy DIY project, right? This is my favorite kind of DIY project: easy to make but yields amazing results.
In fact, they’re almost too pretty to use – but so wonderful to use at the same time. Then again, if you don’t want to use it, they make a beautiful and festive addition to your holiday decor in the bathroom.
How to Gift This Christmas Soap
When gifting something to someone, presentation is everything, right? Personally, I love to wrap these up in fun holiday gift bags (like the kind for food) and tie them off with a ribbon.
That way the person you give it to can see the bars through the bag and be impressed that you made them yourself!
