Homemade Soap Recipes

Looking for homemade soap recipes? Well then....you've come to the right place!

There are so many wonderful ingredients involved in soap making and I seem to have a desire to try them all! Since I'm pretty sure you would too, I'm posting each successful soap recipe I create so that you can try them for yourself.

Below you will find a varied selection of soaps, each with a link to the recipe and corresponding instructions. Feel free to play around with them, change them up if you like or just make them as they are.

Check out the Palm Free Soap Recipes page as well for even more options to choose from.

If you prefer to completely create your own look, try the Basic Soap Recipes page for another long list of recipes to try.

Each homemade soap recipe on my site produces approximately 10 - 110 to 150 gram bars. 

Remember to always check soap recipes with a lye calculator before using them just to be sure that they have the correct amount of lye listed.

Calculation for Soap Mould Volume

Not sure how much soap will fit in your mould? Here is a formula that will calculate how much oil you need in your homemade soap recipe to make the right size soaps.

Length of mould x Width of mould x Height of soap x .40 = ounces of oil needed

example: My mould is 6" x 6" and I pour my soap to 2.25" high so the calculation will be:

6" x 6" x 2.25" x .40 = 32.4 ounces

Since I like working in grams, I convert the ounces over by multiplying the ounces by 28.375

32.4 ounces x 28.375 = 919.35 grams (I use 900 grams of oil in my recipes for simplicity)
