Making your own soap bars is easy with our soap flakes. Just melt them down with some boiling water and add your own essential oils and even petals or clays to customise!

  • 250g soap flakes
  • 200ml boiling water
  • 10ml nourishing oil of your choice (almond or jojoba)
  • A few drops of essential oil


Add the flakes into a saucepan (chop into smaller pieces beforehand if needed) and add the hot water. Gently melt whilst stirring occasionally over 1-2 hours. Add to low heat and stir for a few minutes but do not let boil. Take off the heat and add chosen oil and essential oils. Pour into a mould shape (if not silicone line with baking paper), and leave to cool for a few hours then place in the fridge for a few hours until firm. Remove from the mold and cut to shape if necessary. Allow to air dry for 1 week on a baking rack or chopping board to make it last longer, otherwise soap is ready to use.
