Copy-Cat Scented Soap: A DIY Project

If you've been visiting a while you already know I'm a huge fan of DYI. If you can make it, why buy it? But I also have a busy life, so there are several things I've wanted to learn how to make for a while but somehow never found the time. One of them is quilting. And another is soap making.

Copy-Cat Scented Soap: A DIY Project

So, when I was offered the chance to share here recipes for soap making that, besides being very easy, allow you to use all your favorite fragrances - I didn't even hesitate. 

If you have a favorite scent you wear often, you may have a scented soap that complements it. Not only does a scented soap help prolong the scent’s life, but it can be something that smells good even if you don’t feel like putting on perfume one day.

For the optimal scented soap, you’ll want to use a combination of essential oils that share similar notes with your favorite perfume. Do you love Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue? What about Chanel No. 5? Now you can make them a soap that complements that perfume. 

All you have to do is use the melt and pour method to make this soap — no lye is involved! It’s easy and you can make them in batches and save them for quite some time.

Here’s a basic rundown of instructions: first, you just break apart pre-made soap (it’s the kind you can find at most craft stores). Next, melt the soap pieces. Finally, mix them with one of the copy cat perfume recipes to create the perfect scent.

When you’re finished, pour the soap into a mold and let it set. If you’re feeling generous, these bars of soap also make great gifts! Just wrap them in some cellophane and tie a bow around them. Keep them on hand for whenever you need a quick gift, or make a whole batch of them for Christmas!

Have fun, and happy Tuesday!

  1. Ok, I have never made soap before but now I see how easy it actually is. THanks for sharing this with us at #OMHGWW. Pinning this for later because I want to make my own now.
