Melt and Pour Soap Recipes

The melt and pour soap recipes found on this page are meant to be used with the Step by step melt and pour instructions. The amounts giving are only suggestions experiment and let your personal tastes guide you, change a scent in a recipe, increase or decrease it, change the color or the additives, the possibilities are endless.

Fragrance oils can be used in place of some of the essential oils in your Melt and Pour soap recipes, you won’t get the benefit of the oils but you will get the scent at least. Adjustments will have to be made as I haven’t tried fragrance oils in place of the essential oils in some of my Melt and Pour Soap recipes yet. Also Essential oils can be used instead of fragrance oils, again adjustement will have to be made check out the essential oils page for adjusting from fragrance oils to essential oils.

Just remember to mix your scent in a small container in small amounts to start with, and you can always add more but you can’t take it away.
