Image DIY Super Easy Melt and Pour Soap
By Mistirose on April 13, 2012

This is great soap and easy to make. You can make it for pennies on the dollar if you order supplies in quantity. It makes great gifts too! Please note; this will leave more soap scum in your bath and shower if you have hard water.

Where do you get the melt & pour soap? Is it expensive?

What she said, and also, what about the fragrances? I see they are intended for candles.

Are these supplies available at a craft store?

I get my melt and pour from Peak candles online http://www.peakcandles.com They dont have SLS in it and other bad for you chemicals. They are super quick about shipping. If you arent concerned about the SLS etc...you can get it from most craft stores. Its not expensive, at Peak I believe its 2 to 3 dollars a pound and most soaps are 3 to 4 ounces to you can make 4 or 5 bars from 1 lb. The scents I also get from Peak candles and local stores here. There are some that are for candles or soap only but most are approved for both. The one I used in this tutorial came from a local candle and soap store that went out of business, it is approved for both. You can get small bottles of Fragrance oil at hobby stores but if you want essential oil or larger bottles of Fragrance oil, I would suggest online such as Peak Candle or Brambleberry.com. I can usually find Fragrance oils for a dollar an ounce and usually ordered 16 oz bottles to get the best deal.

Great article Misti - thank you so much!

Our local health food store sells tons of essential oils. Do you think I could use those?

absolutely, just make sure they are skin safe. Not all are. They should say on the bottle if they aren't.
