Homemade Glycerin Soaps

The other day we posted some lye soap recipes, and figured we’d also post some glycerin soap recipes. After all, it is the most popular right now for both consumers and soap makers.

This particular recipe doesn’t get much easier. It includes only 3 ingredients, two of which are completely your choice. The other ingredient is glycerin of course! You can also find this recipe on our homemade soap recipes page, and in the Bath & Body Recipes ebook.

Herbal Glycerin Soap Recipes
1 pound Glycerin
1/2 ounce fragrance oil or 1/2 to 1 teaspoon essential oil, amount depends on oil used.
1 T. herbal powder of your choice and/or 1 T. dried flower of you choice

Melt the glycerin in the microwave until completely dissolved. This usually takes one to two minutes. Avoid stirring as much as possible because stirring causes bubbles. Pour in herbal powder, dried flowers, and fragrance oil while still in liquid state. Stir lightly to evenly distribute the ingredients.

Pour in the mold of your choice and let set for 1 to 2 hours or longer if desired. If you have trouble with the bar releasing from the mold, place in the freezer for a few minutes and the bar should release easily. I have found that the bar of soap lathers better when it is allowed to cure for 3 to 7 days before use.

This recipe yields 4 – 4 ounce bars of Glycerin Soap
