The thoughts of soap making has always intrigued me, but intimidated me at the same time. That was until I discovered melt and pour soap base. It’s as easy as it sounds . . . melt and pour.
If you’ve been with me for very long, you know I try to find all natural solutions for anything – a way of life necessary because of our families intolerances. Now, in the world of products, I’ve often found I can place ingredients under a bad – better – best category system. So many products claim to be “all natural”, but all the ingredients listed certainly don’t appear to be all natural.
That’s where it’s important to do your research, discover the chemicals that are actually bad for your health, avoid them like the plague, and look for better options.
Until I dive into learning how exactly to make homemade soaps with the best all natural ingredients, I’ve found this melt and pour goat milk soap base to be a much “better” option.
The goat milk and honey found in this recipe is so nourishing for my skin. I’ve found I don’t have to apply lotion after I wash my hands. I’ve even added some Vitamin E for good measure.
Let’s talk about each ingredient and the supplies you’ll need, then I’ll show you how easy it is to make.
*Also view/print the recipe card below.

HOW TO MAKE MELT AND POUR SOAP
Cutting through the soft soap base is easy! Dice and cube into approximately 1 inch squares.
Melt the soap base in the microwave or a double broiler. If in microwave, heat in 30 second increments until melted to a milk consistency.
Add the honey and stir with a whisk.
MELT AGAIN IF NEEDED
If the honey made the soap thicken up, add to the microwave for a little bit until milky again.
Add your vitamin E oil, essential oils or colorant. All optional.
Slowly and carefully pour soap into molds.
HARDEN AND SET
Set aside where they can harden. It takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to be hard enough to pop out of molds.
Remove the soap from the molds and let set for up to 24 hours before packaging and using.
I love how creamy and smooth these soaps look – just like milk and honey!
