Making your own cleanser at home is simple and cheap. There is nothing more satisfying than taking your own hand-crafted bar of soap into your shower. Regardless of whether you’re venturing out in the hopes of finding a better alternative to commercial brand soaps or just bored looking for a new creative hobby, making soaps is fun, cheap and easy.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Tray/ Soap Mold
There are so many new ways of making you own soap. This happens to be the easiest and my favorite. In order to show how easy it is, I had my 10-year-old cousin, Angelina Rosario, demonstrate via video. Keeping in theme with the holiday season, we chose cinnamon gingerbread men soaps.
STEPS TO MAKING YOUR VERY OWN SOAP:
Step One: Unwrap your glycerin and cut into the cubes already outlined for you.
Step Two: Place Glycerin in a microwaveable bowl and heat in the microwave for one minute until completely melted into liquid.
Step Three: Once melted, add the essential oil of your choice. We’ve used cinnamon oil.
Step Four: Add food coloring and mix them together.
Step Five: After mixing all ingredients together, grab your mold and begin to fill. It’ll take about an hour for you soap to set and harden.
Step Six: With your soap now hardened, pop it out of the mold and onto your soap dish. Ready to use immediately.
