organic and natural homemade soaps

Below are many natural soap recipes that you can make at home. These handmade soap recipes are gaining in popularity due to the fact that people want pure skin care products. They do not want their skin to come in contact with the harsh ingredients and perfumes that exist in the many skin care products available today. By using homemade soap recipes, individuals can choose which ingredients they want to add to their cleansing soap.

Homemade Soap Recipes - Citronella Soap

Assemble the ingredients listed below.

  • 1 cup grated Castile soap
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 drops of citronella essential oil
  • 5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
  • 1 tablespoon of dried, crushed pennyroyal leaves

Mix the ingredients into the melted soap and water mixture. Using an electric mixer, whip the soap until it has doubled in volume. Spoon the soap into the prepared molds, pushing it into the molds as best you can (the beating action cools the mix, so work quickly). If the mixture has cooled off and thickened so much you cannot put it into the molds, hand mold the soap into large balls.

  • 4 ounces of MP soap (This white soap base is very similar in formula to the clear soap.)
  • 2 teaspoons of cold cream
  • 10 drops of fragrance oil

Melt soap, then add cold cream and stir until melted. Remove from heat; add fragrance and color, and then mold.

  • 1 pound of opaque MP soap
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa butter
  • cocoa powder for colorant (or brown dye)
  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate fragrance oil
  • round or cookie molds

Melt the MP soap. Remove from heat and slowly stir in the cocoa butter and enough cocoa powder to make it a pale brown or tan in color. Add the chocolate fragrance oil. Reserve enough of the soap to make a darker brown color. Pour the lighter shade of brown soap into round/cookie molds. Add more cocoa powder to the reserved batch of MP base to make a darker brown. Marble into the pale brown soap.

Cinnamon Soap Recipe

  • 4 ounces of MP soap base
  • 10 drops of cinnamon oil
  • 1 drop of red food coloring (optional)

Citrus and Calendula Soap

The ingredient list for this citrus homemade soap recipe.

  • 1 pound of MP transparent soap base
  • a handful of calendula petals (dried), about 1/4 cup
  • 15 drops of yellow food coloring
  • 3/4 teaspoons of grapefruit essential oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of tangerine essential oil
  • 1 tablespoon of melted shea butter (melted separately)

Melt the soap base and at the same time melt the shea butter in a custard cup placed in a pan of boiling water or in the microwave. Add calendula petals to the melted base, a few drops of yellow food coloring, the essential oils and then the melted shea butter. Try to have this the same temp as the melt and pour. Keep stirring the soap/shea butter mixture as it cools. As it starts to set up spoon into heart molds. By spooning you have more control of how many of the calendula leaves go into each mold. Set at room temp until they are skimmed over fairly firm then chill them in the freezer for about a half hour before removing from the mold. Place them on a rack to finish drying completely.

Remove from heat and stir in the whipping cream and the vanilla fragrance oil. Pour the melted soap into the molds on top of the orange soap. Let it set for three hours. Your finished bars should come out half orange and half white. Enough for 2 bars.

Cucumber Loofah Soap

  • 3 ounces of opaque soap base
  • 2 teaspoons of powdered loofah
  • 15 drops of cucumber fragrance oil
  • 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel
