This recipe takes only 10 minutes to prep, which is perfect for all of us on a time budget. It’s also budget friendly.
Making your own soap is a little bit more upfront, but you can make a lot more batches and customize each one to your specific preferences. Since you are buying in bulk, in the end you get a lot more bang for your buck. Which is awesome because a budget is a budget. But a budget doesn’t mean you can’t give amazing and thoughtful gifts to your friends.
A lot of soap companies intentionally don’t disclose what’s in their products- scents, colorants, preservatives, etc because they are terrible and toxic for you. That’s why you can have total peace of mind making your own!
These also make wonderful gifts for family and friends. If you know someone’s specific scent preferences you could handmake them the soap of their dreams! How thoughtful.
Okay, but truly the best part about this is it takes 5 minutes or less to make. Let’s get into it!

This can add visual interest if you go for a designed soap mold, or you can go for a plain rectangular one. There’s no rule with this! Have fun with it.

The possibilities are endless. I recommend looking at amazon and Etsy if you are going for something more niche!
