Discover how easy it is to make soap at home, perfect for gifting or personal use! Handmade soap is a great beginners’ project and it’ll be a practical one too. Make your soap unique to you by adding fragrances and colours – and even a hint of glycerine for moisturising. We suggest using recycled liquid soap bottles as an eco-friendly way to store and dispense it.

To make 500ml of liquid soap.
Remove the block of soap base from the packing then cut a 250g block. Cut into smaller chunks then grate using a fine grater.
Place 250ml of water in a glass jug then place in the microwave and boil. Once the water is bubbling add in the grated soap then whisk thoroughly.
Add a teaspoon of glycerin to the mixture and a couple of drops of fragrance. Whisk well.
Leave the mixture to cool, whisking often so the mixture doesn’t separate. If it becomes a little thick then add a little more water and whisk well.
Once cooled, decant into a soap dispenser using a funnel to help it go in cleanly.
