Which Essential Oils Are Best for Soap Making?
One of the best parts about making DIY soap is that you can choose the scent! Use a single essential oil such as vanilla, sandalwood, eucalyptus, or lavender. Each is one of the best essential oils for soap making.
Or create your very own custom soap scent by blending multiple essential oils.

Rosemary and Eucalyptus Soap Supplies & Ingredients
4.5 ounces coconut milk melt and pour soap base
1 oval leaf silicone soap mold
⅛ teaspoon spirulina powder
⅛ teaspoon poppy seeds
15 ml eucalyptus essential oil
10 ml rosemary eucalyptus
Rosemary and Eucalyptus Soap Recipe Instructions:
1. Prep Soap Mold – Prepare the oval leaf-stamped silicone soap mold by cleaning, drying, and spritzing it with rubbing alcohol.
3. Melt Soap Base – Scoop the chopped coconut soap base into a large glass measuring cup with a spout. Then, place it in the microwave and melt the soap base in four 30-second intervals at 50% power, stirring intermittently.
4. Add Color and Exfoliant – Add ⅛ teaspoon of spirulina powder to the melted soap to create the green color along with added nutrients. Thoroughly whisk it into the soap, then add ⅛ teaspoon of blue poppy seeds to create an exfoliant in the soap bars.
5. Add Essential Oil – Next, add 15 ml of eucalyptus essential oil and 10 ml of rosemary essential oil to the soap mixture. Whisk the oils thoroughly into the soap.
6. Pour Soap – Next, carefully pour the mixture evenly between four sections of the soap mold, avoiding overflow before the soap hardens. And it will begin to harden quickly!
Watch the soap harden and spritz the soap tops with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles in the soap. Then, allow the soap to cool in the mold for one to two hours or until solid before removing.
