DIY Christmas Melt and Pour Soap Materials
With any melt and pour recipe, you luckily won’t need much material. You can add in some herbs, clays, oatmeal, mica, etc. but usually you will at least need the following few ingredients.
Melt and Pour Soap Base
I personally love using a goat milk melt and pour soap base because it always seems to moisturize my skin and gets really bubbly compared to other ones I’ve tried.
Here are the most common melt and pour soap bases:
- Goat’s milk
- Shea butter
- Cocoa butter
- Aloe vera
- Clear glycerin
- Hemp seed oil
- Coconut milk
- Olive oil
You can use any type of soap mold, depending on what style you want. I personally only use silicone soap molds and will typically do loafs at a time with the long rectangle molds or fun flowery shapes.
There are plenty of creative soap molds that have lots of details and some simple ones as well.
These holiday soap molds are incredibly cute too! Here are some great holiday soap molds:
Check out some of the best soap molds I have found.
Essential oils are what adds to the fun with these winter melt and pour soap recipes! You can add in some incredible smells that truly bring the holiday vibe.
Be sure you are using 100% pure essential oils and not fragrance oils to keep them safe for everyone. Do your research and find ones you are comfortable using.
Here are a few essential oils I would use for these holiday soap recipes:
- Chocolate orange truffle blend
- Wood spice
- Holiday season
If you want to add in some colors, try using mica powder! It is a more natural route. You can also use certain flowers and herbs that will naturally create colors as well.
I personally try to avoid colors and adding anything extra that is not absolutely necessary. The less the ingredients, the better for me!
