Prep Time : 20 minutes / Cook Time : 24 hours / Yields: 8 small or 4 larger soap bars

Step 1

Using a natural bar soap or solid soap base, grate the remaining into a saucepan.

Step 2

Melt together the soap gratings with the coconut oil over medium heat, stirring regularly.

Step 3

Gently stir in the light brown sugar.

Step 4

Remove from heat and stir in the essential oils.

Step 5

Fill the finished mixture into your soap molds. I use an ice tray or larger silicone ice mold. You can also choose fun molds for special occasions.

Step 6

Let set overnight and gently remove from molds.

Step 7

Get creative with wrapping! You can use brown paper and twine, printed wrapping paper or your favorite ribbon and sprig of rosemary!

Additional Tip:
  • Essential oils should be used minimally. The light brown sugar allows for a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliation. For those with sensitive skin, omit essential oils from the recipe.
