If you've never made your own soap before, you would probably be surprised by how easy it can be. Adding essential oils to homemade soap is a wonderful way to infuse potent, natural fragrances. Not to mention, it allows you to experience any benefits the oils may hold for the skin. The step-by-step instructions for this DIY Rosemary Spearmint Soap are easy to follow, with an end product that smells lovely and refreshing.
Olive oil melt-and-pour soap base
15 drops Spearmint oil
15 drops Rosemary oil
Optional: Dried herbs
Disclaimer: Although these images show fresh herbs in the soap, we highly recommend only using dried herbs. The fresh herbs (although beautiful) turn the soap brown after a few days.
Cut off the amount of soap base you want to use and place it into a microwave safe bowl.
Melt the soap into liquid form in increments of 30 seconds.
Add a handful of dried herbs to the soap mold.
Add Spearmint and Rosemary essential oils.
Mix together and pour into molds.
Let it sit for an hour.
Remove the soap from the mold.
Note: The soap should be good for a few months.
