I am excited to share this super easy DIY with you! Its not too late to whip some up for those people you are seeing post holidays. They would also make adorable birthday gifts as well.
Short size Starbucks cups
2oz. soap (enough to make three soaps)
Essential Oil of your choice
I bought 5 oz. soap from Michaels because I wanted some extra and I wanted the honey Shea butter and they didn't have it in a smaller size. It was $24 and I had a 50% precent off coupon so it wasn't too bad. I got the honey shea butter mostly because it sounded cool, but you can use goats milk or whatever type you can get your hands on. I used lavender essential oils because its my favorite but you can pick whichever one you like or have around.
Remove the soap from packaging and cut the soap up into squares.
Put the squares of soap in a microwaveable dish or a measuring cup. I packed them in and filled the 2 cup measuring cup up to the top.
Microwave the soap until there are no more chunks. I'd suggest doing it in increments and stopping to stir. The soap gets hot so be careful!
If you want to use essential oils put about 30 drops in at this point.
Pour soap into each cup and then put into the freezer to cool for 2 hours.
When the soap is hardened add some cinnamon to the top to make it look like a latte! Don't forget to add a funny name to the side of the cup!
When you want to get the soap out to use, just squeeze the cup a bit and the soap will loosen. You can pop it out in the shower and put it back in or just use it as an adorable bathroom decoration.
Two things I want to leave you with. One, I made an amazing cookie recipe today for the family and I just have to share. You will want to make these, I promise. Two, you may have seen me post about my awesome Erin Condren planner on Instagram this evening. Well lucky for you I have a special link to get you $10 off a planner of your own! I will be posting soon with some tips and tricks on organizing your planner, but until then, snag your own!
Have a great night!
