Looking to try soap making but not sure where to start? Melt and pour soap bases are a fantastic and safe way to start making your own soaps at home and avoid the intimidating chemicals that cold process soap recipes require such as lye. 

Melt and pour soap bases are good value, easy to use and you can get creative by adding essential oils, dried flowers or colour. You can also customise your soap with our silicone soap moulds!

Follow our easy lavender melt and pour soap recipe and have some fun!

  1. Tip the melt and pour soap base out of the packaging and onto a cutting board, then cut into small chunks.
  2. Add to a heatproof bowl and melt gently in the microwave using 1 minute intervals and stirring in between until fully melted. If you don't have a microwave you can melt it in a heat proof bowl over a pan of boiling water.
  3. Allow to cool slightly, then add 50ml of lavender essential oil along with 25g of the mica powder.
  4. Stir well and enjoy the gorgeous fragrance and the magic of the colour blending!
  5. Pour into your moulds - you can buy soap moulds in all sorts of shapes and patterns, but silicone cupcake moulds from your kitchen cupboard also work really well for this. If you'd like to make mini guest soaps try silicone ice cube trays which also come in lots of fun shapes!
  6. If you like you can sprinkle lavender flowers on the top of the soaps at this stage.
  7. Leave to set for about 6 hours and then tip the soaps out of the moulds and wrap them in clingfilm. This prevents the soap from sweating and losing moisture. Soaps made using melt and pour soap bases can be used straightaway as they don't require curing. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
