14 Easy DIY Homemade Soap Recipes

I’ve gathered some of my favorite homemade soap recipes that will help you easily create luxurious bars of soap.

Are you looking for a fun project to try at home? Why not make your own soap? There are so many DIY homemade soap recipes out there for your to choose from.

Many of these homemade soap recipes use a goat’s milk melt and pour soap base. This helps ensure the soap is gentle and moisturizing for your skin.

Melt-and-pour soap bases are convenient and simple to use, making them the perfect way for beginners to start with their own homemade soap recipes.

What is the Melt and Pour Method?

The melt-and-pour method involves melting down a pre-made base and adding ingredients like infused oils, herbs, or dried flowers.

Once you’ve added these items to your base, simply pour your soap mixture into molds and let the bars harden up before using them. Here are some of my favorite DIY homemade soap recipes.
