10 Melt and Pour Soap Recipes

Soap Making is a fun and a very fulfilling hobby to take on. Using the Melt and Pour method is an easier alternative and doesn’t require you to work with the chemical Lye. It’s light, fun and an activity that you can do with your kids or siblings.
It’s pretty much like the name suggests. You melt the pre-made soap bases and you pour them in your moulds and then you can add it any scents that you’d like & in less than a few hours, soaps are ready!

There’s a few different kinds of soap bases in the market….so try, experiment and see which ones you like. The idea is to make this fun so make sure you have enjoy the process.

10 Melt and Pour Soap Recipes

1. Lavender & Rosemary

Lavender as a herb is relaxing and Rosemary improves blood circulation. Both Lavender & Rosemary go very well together. I like to use the Goat’s Milk Soap Base but feel free to try another. It’s all about experimenting and finding what you like.

2. Honey & Oatmeal

Honey acts as a nourishing and moisturising element in this one. You can straight up buy a Honey Soap Base too and just for some extra moisturising effect add in raw honey. Oatmeal on the other hand works as a nice and light exfoliator. You can mix rolled oats in your melt and pour soap base and you’re good to go.

3. Turmeric & Smoked Paprika

This one is one of my personal favourites. Turmeric which is a common ingredient in Indian households is supposed to be very good for our skin. It makes the skin brighter, softer and Paprika too works well in adding a glow to the skin. Melt your preferred soap base, add in some Turmeric & Paprika Powder and pour into your moulds. You can also pour in a few drops of Sandalwood Essential Oil into your mix, it adds in a lovely scent to the soap.

4. Coffee & Cocoa

Coffee which is so good to drink is just as good for the skin. It acts as a natural exfoliator and improves circulation. I like to melt a Goat’s Milk Soap Base, add in a bit of coffee powder and a tiny bit of Cocoa Powder for that chocolate scent.

5. Peppermint & Shea

Shea Butter makes the soap so gentle and moisturizing. The wiff of Peppermint filling in while you bathe is so calming. I personally love using this as it makes me feel very nice and refreshed. You could use a Shea Butter Soap Base for this and simply just add in a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil to your melt & pour base before you put it into your moulds. If you like you can also add in some Charcoal powder to make the soap work better for acne prone skin.

6. Lemon

While you’re making soaps for your body it’s just as lovely to have a nicer bar of soap for your dishes too. Using market made harsh dish soaps sometimes really make the hands rough, so I like to make this for times like those. Plus lemon works wonderfully in cleaning out the dishes. You could pop in tiny pieces of lemon rinds as well as the anti bacterial Lemon Essential Oil in your soap base.

7. Jasmine & Aloe Vera

If you have dry and itchy skin then this is one to try. The scents and flavours are mild and subtle but the properties of Aloe Vera really work their magic on your skin. To make this beauty, melt a soap base of your choice, for this I like to use a Clear Soap Base. Add in some Jasmine Essential Oil and a bit of the extract gel from an Aloe Vera plant into the melted soap base.

8. Goat’s Milk & Himalayan Sea Salt

Goat’s Milk soap base is really nice for the skin. It leaves the skin feeling soft and nourished. Himalayan Sea Salt on the other hand works as a great exfoliator. So this one too is a great recipe in my opinion. You can get a Goats Milk soap base, melt the required quantity, add in your favourite oils and some Himalayan Sea Salt.

9. Cinnamon & Shea

I like to make this in a glycerin soap base but feel free to use any. After melting the desired quantity, add in some shea butter, cinnamon powder and cinnamon Essential Oil. Shea butter has anti inflammatory properties. Cinnamon is very good for fixing skin blemishes.

10. One with a Fun Toy

If you have kids or younger siblings and would like to make bath time fun for them then you could simple add in some funky elements in the melted soap base itself. You could pop in silicon toy pieces of tiny alphabets for their name. To make one with the alphabets you’re going to need an Alphabet Mould. You can make tiny melt and pour alphabets and pop those in the bigger melt and pour soaps. It’s fun and makes for a super cute gift too!

I hope you give these a try and enjoy making soaps. If you’re new to soap making and intrigued by this activity then going the Melt and Pour way is a great place to begin. You can slowly progress into making Cold Process Soaps as well. Remember to enjoy and experiment & make it fun for you!
