Do you love homemade gift ideas using melt and pour soap? Learn how to make these easy DIY Exfoliating Loofah Soaps that look like like high-end beauty products!
Now that Zoë and Kaylee are getting older and have some of their own social media accounts, they are starting to come up with ideas for new things for us to make. They had both been asking to make Loofah Soap Bars for a while now, so one day when I was feeling up to it, the three of us had a fun crafting day (we made beeswax candles that day too).
With some of the simple projects like this, they barely need my help anymore other than chopping up blocks of melt and pour soap because it takes a little more leverage than their little arms can muster safely.
They are growing up so fast, and I’m so grateful I get to be super creative with my girls all the time. It’s a lot of fun and a great mother-daughters bonding activity.
We had a lot of fun making these Loofah Soap Bars. They work well for exfoliating dry patches of skin, and I love using them on my feet. They also look really nice in a gift basket or on the bathroom counter on display.
They are so incredibly easy to make too. It was such a fast process that I’ll definitely consider making them again for gifts. You would have no idea they can be made so fast when you first look at them! We even made a video to show you just how easy it it.
If you’re looking for a good exfoliating soap bar or an impressive homemade beauty gift idea, whip up a batch of these Simple DIY Loofah Soap Bars.
Simple DIY Loofah Soap Bars
- Cut the loofahs into strips that will fit neatly into each cavity, then place them in the silicone mold.
- Chop the melt and pour soap into cubes, then place it in the top of the double boiler. Heat the soap over medium-low until it's completely melted and clear, stirring frequently.
- Once it's completely melted, add the soap colorant and essential oils and stir to combine.
- Immediately pour the melted soap into the silicone mold over the loofahs.
- Allow the soap to dry completely, then pop your loofah soaps out of the silicone mold. Place them in a mason jar and use them one at a time in the shower or gift them to a friend.
