DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Loofah Soaps Supplies:
- 1 pound of clear melt and pour soap, cut into cubes (each cube is approximately 1 ounce and each pound has 20 cubes)
- 1 loofah sponge
- 1 tablespoons jojoba oil
- 10-20 drops frankincense essential oil ( I only use Young Living Oils for my Essential Oil Beauty DIY’s I’m happy to help if you want to order some for yourself!)
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie scent
- Brown mica powder
- Copper cosmetic glitter
- Soap mold (I used this one from Amazon, but any with enough room to fill the sponge will work great)
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Loofah Soaps Instructions:
Step 1: Cut loofah into 1-1.5” wide slices. Set aside.
Steps 2-5: Place 20 cubes of soap into a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Add your frankincense essential, oil jojoba oil, and pumpkin pie scent to bowl or measuring cup.
Step 6: Melt soap base in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until completely melted.
Step 7: Add 1 tsp. of the brown mica to the soap mixture and mix well. Add a bit more if you want your soap to be darker.
Steps 8-9: Spray mold with a light amount of alcohol. Sprinkle a bit of glitter into each cavity of the mold.
Step 10: Pour just enough of the soap base into each cavity until it covers the bottom. Allow to cool for about 1 minute.
Step 11: Place your loofah pieces into mold. Allow soap to harden for about 2-3 minutes. This ensures the loofah sticks to the mold and won’t float up when you add the remainder of the soap into the mold.
Step 12: Pour soap mixture into soap mold until the loofah is covered. The loofah will soak up a lot of the soap mixture. This may cause some empty spots between the loofah and the mold. If this occurs, pour a bit of soap to even it up.
Step 13: Allow to harden overnight. Remove carefully and store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag until ready to use.
This loofah soap is a fantastic for exfoliating, cleaning and moisturizing your skin! Not to mention, it smells AMAZING! I do so love me a good essential oil beauty diy, and this one has become my new favorite! I’m sure it will become one of yours too!
